Spidermom - I love the use of the "sheet music" combined with the fuzzy stuff around the edges. Inside all the jewelry bits were great.

Lindyv321 - the Owl matchbox was soooo cute and I love the earrings. Well done.

Loves2experiment - Love the dark angel child and tweedle dee and tweedle dum (at least I think that is who they are supposed to be) the 3 D skull and tiny skull "portrait" were mys favorite inside elements.

GREAT job to all our clever crafters!

oh my gosh, these are looking so wonderful!  When I joined this swap, I was just excited because I love all things tiny, but the art and the variety has been so inspiring to see.  It always amazes me to see the talent on craftster!

Never thought to do a clear box (but now I want one!), LOVE Wulf's creations, the ribbon tied ones makes such a beautiful statement, sushi cat has hooked me, too....

so much to love, I have to go look again to take it all in...........

I came home after a 12 hour day and found an amazing surprise waiting for me from Tree27.  I'm pooped out from work but I couldn't wait to share this beautiful box with all of you.  She must have checked out my WIST because everything from the box to each of it's tiny treasures are perfect for me.  Thank you Tree27!

I wish the picture could show the lovely leaf paper she used.  The Faerie is pewter and she looks like she is dancing and I love the tag with fibreartist4life on it . . .

This shows the contents still inside the box . . .

and Ta Da here is all the loveliness that poured out . . .

I received from Milady today!

She was totally awesome! She even broke the rules twice!
She send me a bigger box (do feel guilty about my small one now) and she send a stamp which was not included in the box! How naughty  Shocked

Picture overload starting now:

The box itself, Milady included a note saying her theme was based on rainbows. It's real cute.
And what a work to put all off those sequins on one for one! One of Milady's favorite quotes is on the back. I love it to!

Before unpacking

My treasures, I'm so very spoiled. A stamp, ribbons, crystal like hearts, magnet strips, three beads/ornament, flower sequins and an awesome wheel with tiny things in it. (dunno how to name it).

The ribbons where smartly packed.

I love everything Milady send, but the wheel deserves a picture of it's own:

Thank you so much Jenn, you totally made my day!
She was unsure about thing to send to someone how does papercrafts as she is more of a sewer, but she did wonderfull, I can use everything!

*I'm up for personal swaps!*

Wow, I'm so glad it made it in one piece! I did manage to fit the stamp in but then I unpacked it and I couldn't get it back in again! The shop I bought the matchbox in didn't have any different sizes, so I thought I'd just go with it lol. I received your box, but as I'm about to rush out I will post pictures tomorrow, but I love love love it!

oh! I love all the matchboxes! I can't believe the amount off goodies we get to admire, i think this is one of the bigger swaps (in amount of swappers) . The great diversity of craftster is really on show here! And I really think all the matchboxes are beautiful in their own right, be they simple or intricate.

I'm never having kids, I hear they take 9 months to download
