Yusss I received yesterday from the fabulous KatMonstah and oh my gosh it is amazing, in fact it's going to get two postings.  One here and one in the Day of the Dead swap which I am partaking and I'll show you for why.....

Firstly it came in a teeny tiny pouch, which was stuffed with embroidery threads as packing - amazing.  Then when I opened it, it was wrappend in a little note and then... I squeee-ed, skulls!  My favourite!
Front: Back:
All my goodies - they are all going to get used!

My fav's - teeeny tiny skull beads!  And the smallest book I have ever seeen!  With loads of different pages and pictures including my pin-up girl!

Kat, I can't begin to thank you for the thoughtful-ness and time you have clearly put in to this.  You have been a great swap partner.  Thank you

Nothing handmade is ever perfect

Good grief -- the matchboxes are just flying into this gallery! I love everyone's ideas and themes. And I will not cease to be amazed by how much stuff everyone seems to be able to cram into a tiny matchbox!

JPea - the skull beads glow in the dark (in theory) Smiley I'm glad you like it! I had loads of fun making everyhtings

Those hedgehogs are adorable (both the box and the actual one), I love the little felt ears! Genius!

I am going to have to steal LauraLynn125 's amazing idea and make one of those hedgehog matchboxes for my Mom. She is an Art teacher at an elementary school and their mascot is a hedgehog. I will make a necklace to put in it and give it to her for Mother's Day. She will love it. Great idea for the matchbox. Too cute!!!!

WOW, when I do the next matchbox swap, I'm totally revving up my game! You guys rock at this!

Stove, I'm super glad you like the box! That wand was so fun to make, hand carved the wee thing.  Cheesy

And just because I have to show it off, here's it upclose!

The teeny books are great everyone! They are, however, giving me teeny eye aches just thinking about making something so small!
