BAH, I've been so busy. I meant to get pictures up earlier than this. Well, SonjaBoo sent me an adorable matchbox. She really nailed my style. So, onward with some pics of the greatness!


So, she crafted me a little hot air balloon. Everything was a combination of my themes. It was vintage and weird and whimsical. I think the technique she used was very creative. My boyfriend was confused when he saw it from the front. He's like, "That's not a matchbox...".


This is the backside. It's a matchbox after all. I love the polka dots. So classy.


Did I mention it hangs? Action shot! It fits so well in my room.




And check out the goodies that came inside, as well as some wonderful extras. I love love love the Pee-Wee Herman pin, the pendant, and the anthropomorphic stickers!!!

Thank ya, SonjaBoo. Twas great. I loved this swap.

I received from Trick McVomit today, and boy was it worth the wait!

My box was the base for a bottle with an octopus. Octopi were one of my themes, and you would not believe how cool this is. It's almost impossible to tell how she got the octopus in there, even up close. Very nice work on him(he's named Paul, as they are all Paul to me).



Inside the box we have buttons(which I collect) several of which are going in the "permanent collection". My favorites are the little green one, which actually has a scroll design on it, the teeny star(it's really tiny!) of course the octopus, and the practically microscopic dragonfly(my sister is going to get that in a crafted item). Also the vintage white ones which in button collecting are called "2 part snap togethers". She also included some beautiful gems, which I am pretty sure are real(!). And some fancy rusty keys, and finally, that awesome necklace of the tiniest thimble ever made into a pin cushion. How cute is that???



Very happy, Tricky, and glad to see you got more...clowns...there.

I'm really very thrilled on how the bottle came out and will certainly use the method again. He is hand painted onto a clear sheet of plastic I got in the scrapbooking aisle (both sides). I rolled it up, crammed it in there and he unfurled.

I had originally sculpted a glow octopi wrapped around the box but he crumbled immediately after baking. I'm kind of glad he did or else I would never have thought to do this  Cheesy

I'm glad you like it <3
