All the boxes so far have been outstanding! I can hardly keep up with all the awesome pouring in.

I can't believe the size of that crochetted owl, whoa!
And I have to know more about that magnifying glass, did you actually make that?

I think the magnifying glass was from a pirate-themed playmobil set. I just embellished it. And yes, it absolutely does magnify.

I'm so glad you liked everything, hgddm!! [by the way, that talisman coin does come out of the ring, it's probably just a bit stuck].

This arrived a while back but unfortunately I was not here to receive it Cheesy  I was in the middle of tornado cleanup in Central Arkansas and completely forgot about the swap until my husband called me to tell me that a package arrived. Thankfully, I have a very understanding partner and now that I've seen what she sent me... well... she is amazing and I hope she isn't disappointed by what I made her!

Anyway, onto the photos!

this is a picture of the handmade box along with the extras that didn't fit inside. The beads! I LOVE THE BEADS! There is a little bead that looks like corn and I have JUST the project for it!

This is a closeup of the amazingly drawn cover. I am completely in love!

The insides!!! I have no idea how she got all of that to fit! There are 3 twilight guitar picks, a handmade pendant (underneath the skillet, next to the flowers) a wire ring, a stag charm, a strawberry patch, clothespin, cute little skillet, and shiny sequinesque flowers.

Thank you, Strawberryh!!!

 Shocked  I had totally thought that I would one day get into a matchbox swap (I've only participated in one swap so far), but now - how could I compete?  The lab table and kitty-in-the-aquarium-that-sits-on-top-of-a-bureau - WOW - two of the most unique matchboxes I've seen.  Talk about the sky's the limit!!!!  Awesome match boxes ALL OF THEM - so clever and original -  Wink

I'm so sorry I havn't posted sooner!. I had issues with posting before I left for my harry potter convention and the hotel's wifi was killed by hundreds of fangirls lol.

I have received from Theaquacreature and I am madly in love with the matchbox as well as the contents!

Sooo pretty and steampunk-esque on the outside.


All neatly packed up!

The goodies... beads, springs, dice, etc. So much fun.

And my favorite piece of all, a sparkly handmade Stargate charm! Genius!

Seriously cool! And where on earth did you find a Stargate Worlds tag?

Oh. My. Firetrucks!  I recieved this most fabulously awesome box from t33ng1rlsqu4d today.  I can't express how much I am in awe of her work...its just...SQUEE!   I think photos should do the talking (and there are MANY of them):

Behold the mighty awesomness that is Gordon the Goldfish!  Yes, he has a name already!  I name EVERYTHING.  Cheesy

Side view.  I love all the texture she put on the box, on Gordon, and how it looks like he is splashing up from the water.

You pull his tail to see what is inside the drawer!  Squee!  Here is the filled drawer.

The loot all spread out.  So much was inside!

The Loot:

-Bird Silhouette earrings
-Many round buttons and star buttons
-Assorted beads
-Pair of google eyes
-Charms = owl, "with love", leaf, tiny fork, and a fish!
-Ladybug button
-Tiny bluejay <3
-Swallow sticker

Thanks sooooo much t33ng1rl!!   I dont feel worthy!   Cheesy


I can do personal swaps!  ^_^
