I'm so glad you received the box so quickly, tc!  And I'm thrilled you like it!!  I hope you can make yourself something pretty with the pearls!
And I forgot to say in the note but the red-winged blackbird is one of my favorite birds too!

I love all the other matchboxes people have received!!  So pretty!  I really like all the little keys included inside!  And that's a cute paperdoll zombie!

Party Hard!

WOW! The barnacle box and the frog box are incredible! This swap has truly brought out the best in everyone! Where are you people finding these amazing bit and bobs for these matchboxes?!

I received the most unbelievable, incredible, fantastic matchbox from Theaquacreature yesterday!!!!! Waiting for the sun to come out so I can take pictures of it to share with everyone. Prepare for awesomeness! This was my first swap and now I'm addicted. Having Aqua as a partner has spoiled me!

Wow...so many amazing and creative matchboxes so far!! I love how everyone has made a tiny little box look so different!

Also...I love that zombie dress-up doll so much! I keep having zombie nightmares at the moment and I think that maybe if I had a little zombie to put in pretty dresses they might seem a little less scary  Wink Cheesy

I keep hitting the "images only" button and then oohing and aahing...

But the squeaky panda makes me laugh every time.  <3

 Cheesy Just yesterday, I received the BEST box EVER from mingus107!!!. It is the most amazing piece of art, and the elegance of it constantly blows me away! I was so surprised and excited when I unwrapped it, "great minds think alike", you'll know what I mean when Ming post's her box (the one I made for her)!

Here is the packing box opened up.

This is the lovely note from Ming!

So here was when I started screaming, halfway unwrapped, in absolute SHOCK!

Ahhh so amazing!!! Full View!

Another shot of the AMAZING Octopus. I love the sand on the matchbox, soooo cool!

The drawer with the sweet crafts and goodies

Here are the goodies outside of the box.

The leather book was handmade!

And here are some of the details of the box itself! I love the shell drawer knob!

Thanks for looking! I absolutely love my box! Its amazing how well of swap partners we are! Thank you Ming! Thanks sooooo much!
