I can't believe people are already sending and recieving! I know how I'm decorating one, but am stuck on the filling. I have the other one filled already, but can't quite get my idea out of my head and onto the matchbox...  GRRRRRR! Angry

The idea fairy visited me too and told me what to do for Fullmoon. It's coming together beautifully so far, though there's still lots of room to screw it up! Undecided  The idea for Killam Creative is much less fully-formed. I got started on it, but I've reached the point where I have to make some creative decisions so I immediately abandoned it for the other one!

I'm going and back and forth between two different ideas. I might just make them both and decide which one I like best Smiley. I've collected a few little goodies for the inside but definitely need to do some more tiny-shopping and stash diving.

I am trying to gather tiny, tiny things. It is not as easy as I thought.  Angry

I am collecting any kind of skull shaped beads and patches-feel free to send me spare ones  ;-)

If anyone has messaged me and I haven't responded or you haven't turned blue please message me again. It seems there is a CraftyButterfly (without the space) please make sure that you type Crafty Butterfly (with the space) I will message back in acknowledgement and change your color to blue within 24 hours so that you'll know that I received the message.

both of my matchboxes were delivered today and I have a bad feeling that they are not going to measure up.... this was my first attempt at them and I think they could have been better.... oh the swap anxiety!

I wouldn't have guessed that it was your first. I love mine. It looks great. How did you get all those tiny hexagons cut? I love the contents and am eager to play with them. My son snatched one of hte purple rubber bands for himself. I love the personal/local touch of adding the bay leaves. I'm trying to figure out what I could do as an equivalent.

There's nothing like receiving and awesome matchbox to get me motivated to work on matchboxes. I worked on the outsides of both matchboxes yesterday. They are both alright but still need some more tweaking. I hope to have them ready to send by Monday or Tuesday.

Been down with a head cold all week. Picked up a rescued dog from the airport and trying to nurse him back to health and house train him.
Hopefully can start crafting tomorrow.
Its been a rotten week and Im looking forward to making whats going on in my head.
