Very cool, I could see that Mad Hatter box sitting in a grouping with an Alice theme. Very pretty, love the hidden message on the bottom, I like doing that with projects too!

bluepaisan, I love that textile look, it makes me want to touch it!
 Oooh I totally agree!  It's got a great tactile look about it.

I love the fantastically clever Torchwood box, and the amazingly gorgeous Alice boxes - both the hatter's hat (wow!) and the one with the roses and other references.

And now, I finally get to share my goodies -- prepare to be amazed...  I'm going to split this into two posts, since I have a lot of pics to share.

First I received a very exciting package from Kelly (amnesia):


Inside three warriors were awaiting me, with key passages from Lao Tzu's Art of War:





And a fourth passage, with wrapped wooden beads:  

A map of Zhou dynasty era China:  

An official litter to transport something very important...



And inside, a gorgeous and important box:



It is the art of war!

Such a beautiful, detailed, and thoughtful package!!

Oh, I almost forgot!!  There was also a pack of goodies that came along with it (so as not to damage the important text   Wink ):



Thank you so much, Kelly - You really channeled the Art of War into an amazing package!!!

After having my mind blown by the package from Kelly, I opened my second package, with my matchbook from Caitlin (RaraAvis).

I didn't think it was possible to be amazed twice in one day, but Caitlin managed to pull it off with her incredible creation!!


An amazing tree, with the cutest blue bird peeking at me!!!  Cheesy


And a drawer-full of springtime (along with a parliament of owls) inside:


Thank you so much, Caitlin!  You managed to hit on several of my themes in one box, in a beautiful delivery!! Cheesy

Oh wow, so many awesome matchboxes! the Tourchwood one makes me all kinds of happy Smiley And that little hat for Alice in wonderland is so neat looking. Though I think that birdy in a tree one may be my favorite one so far Smiley

Edit: I just noticed that my partner never posted the matchbox I sent her weeks ago. So I guess I should post one. I chose her theme for wrong clocks (her examples were melted clocks or ones that go to 13'oclock). So I did a pocket watch that gos to 13, over an old timey brick lay. That little thing took hours of sculpting, posing, baking, painting, and resin pouring. But I like how it came out Smiley
