This little guy is way more true to the film than any of the "official" plushes you can find online. Very nicely done!

I'd be interested in a pattern, as well.

While I don't completely understand the context, the art is awesome! Hard to look away.

The installation makes me want to know more about the story.

I don't personally find taxidermy offensive enough to be marked as mature. This, however, is coming from a girl who currently has a rat tail in her pocket and feathers in her hair.  Tongue

I just spent a while perusing your website. I am in love with this stuff, especially the bird legs and wings. I may have to treat myself to a new pair of earrings soon!

Octopi are popular because they are badash!  ^_^

They really are! Originally gozer's box was the only one with a poly-clay creature on it, but I had so much fun making the octopus that I wanted to make another animal. I'm really glad I did! (I'm also really glad you liked goldfish.)

I'm going to make another goldfish for my own shelf!  Grin

Ready for more pictures of another awesome box?

This is the box gozer made for me. The outside of the box is so cute and itty bitty! The thought of making a squirrel that tiny blows my mind. Look at his cute little paws!

Tons of awesome stuff was packed inside.

Two kitty charms
Two butterfly charms
Two owl charms
A really pretty silver magnetic jewelry closure
A key charm
A couple of pin backs
Three cute little bumblebee buttons
A little wooden tree shape
Lots of itty bitty star beads.
Four woodland animal stickers, as well as another on the inside of the box.

I forgot to take a picture of it, but gozer's box was packaged in a little green tin with a cute little tree card and one of those neat fortune teller fish. I had never seen one of these fish before, but I haven't stopped playing with it since it arrived! I'm so easily amused.

Such a cute box, gozer! Thanks so much for making this a great swap.  Cheesy

Oh, I'm so glad he made it there in one piece! His little fins kept breaking off while I was making him, so I was a bit worried. I think Gordon is a fitting name for the little guy.  Cheesy

These boxes are so awesome. As a biology major, I squee'd over the dissected frog. The hedgehog and the little monster are cute, too. And look at all of the octopi!

Eeek! I'm glad you like it, gozer. The box you made me is so cool, too! I'll take pictures tomorrow when it's light outside so everyone can ooh and ahh over your fabulous talent.  Cheesy

I received both of my matchboxes from StarFire and gozer this week and HOLY CANNOLI!! These girls hit the nail on the head as far as my taste is concerned. I'm feeling pretty spoiled.  Cheesy

I haven't taken pictures of gozer's box yet, but I'll share StarFire's now and finish up with gozer's tomorrow. Prepare to be jealous, folks.

StarFire's matchbox was wrapped in a box with a cute tag and a large amount of this pretty ribbon. This isn't the best picture of it, but it works.

Inside was my matchbox and a tube of sparkly flower-shaped glitter. I forgot to take a picture of the glitter.  Tongue
The matchbox is seriously adorable, though. I'm in love with these little owls! See for yourself...

Here's a picture of everything stuffed inside!

And finally, here's all of my goodies laid out. (Notice the matchbox's cute interior!)

There's a cute little sock monkey brad (How did you know I love sock monkeys?),
a snake brad (or maybe he's a bookworm, hence the glasses. Either way, he's cute.),
a turtle charm,
a deer charm,
a toadstool bead,
a sparkly green heart bead,
a nest charm,
two wishbone charms,
a magnet with a picture of a birdy and a few mushrooms on it (already on my fridge),
adorable owl earrings (already in my ears),
paper leaves,
four pretty blue beads,
two sparkly paper owls,
three sparkly paper trees (this paper is gorgeous! Like Edward Cullen in the sunlight! Wink ),
and ten pieces of miniature paper artwork, all lovely!

Here are some close-ups for good measure.

I am floored with how fantastic my boxes are. I hope mine measure up!  Undecided

Thanks for a wonderful swap, StarFire! I can't wait for you and gozer to get your boxes!

I always manage to sign up for swaps whose send out dates are right around the end of a semester. Yikes!

Both of my boxes are almost finished and I'm going to try my best to get them sent out before Saturday.

Oh, goodness. I bought my matchboxes today. I've been reading posts on here for weeks about how tiny they are, but I still couldn't believe my eyes. THEY'RE SO SMALL! I'm going to have to cast a few undetectable extension charms on these babies to fit all of my goodies inside. I can't wait for partners!
