I received from hgddm today (it may have been yesterday but I was out of town). I'll post pictures as soon as I can clean up the mess that my van spewed in the living room.

The matchbox she sent is really, really neat!!! Grin

Only Craftsters would see a matchbox and think "Yep. That'd make a great Koi pond or pirate ship" Wink They're both fantastic!

I received my matchbox from WideEyedLife yesterday and am finally getting photos up.  The package is great I'm in love with it.  She accidentally decorated the wrong size matchbox and didn't realize till she was completely done, can't say I blame her for not wanting to start over.  lol 

Here is the main box that everything was stuffed into.



Here are all the goodies that were inside....I'm not sure how she got it all in there...I certainly couldn't get it all back in once I opened it. 



I love the hand made pin up stamp.  So very cool. 

My favorite part is the mini matchbox she decorated and put inside the bigger one.  Ironically, it's the correct size matchbox.   Grin



And when you open the matchbox. 




Thank you so much, I really love it all.

Here it is!

She went with my "sheep" theme. It's a french knot sheep! Every little fluff of wool is a french knot. I love it!

Not the best pic, but a close up of the sheep:


The inside of the drawer and all of the little goodies:

Did you see my favorite one? It's a teeny tiny TARDIS! Handmade!

Thanks Hgddm. You rock! Grin

Glad you like it! BAH! The sheep moved in the mail...he's supposed to be on top of the box. Wanker.

I particularly love the adorable robot stickers.

Thank you so much, bacettox!

This gallery is awesome!

Whistely - I absolutely LOVE that beaded DNA strand.

So I received from Oath Keeper a couple of weeks ago and I'm only getting around to uploading/posting pics now. (I'm sorry!)

Here is her nifty vintage inspired matchbox. I think my favorite part is the little snap piece as a drawer pull.

All the little goodies. Snap parts, little charms, beads, seeds and a bunch of other little things.

And my favorites. A tiny cork, firey red-orange bicone beads, a broken pearly button and this thing that I can't identify that reminds me of some sort of fantasy-themed holy relic/weapon.


Thanks a lot Oath Keeper! I am excited to find a use for all my little odds and ends.

I got this amazing jellyfish from the talented FrankSpinello!  I love the little guy and he matches the grey Manchester weather Smiley    He sort of wobbles precariously on his stand which brings jellyfish realism. Cheesy 


FrankSpinello sent some ace supplies, including a handmade fimo worm that might become part of a necklace and a pretty little robot picture.  I love my stuff, thank you so much!
