Prolly amazing pics again. Felted gnomes, little boks, Japanese scenes... and Wulf, your suitcase trumps. Credit to your work as to all others but since we had a similar idea, extra credit.

Perhaps an idea for a matchbox-suitcase swap?

Wow everybody amazing stuff! I love those Japanese matchboxes- so pretty!

My turn to share!! I received this AMAZING package from FrankSpinello yesterday- She's a first time swapper, but man is she pro! She must have done some thoughtful stalking (never thought I'd say those things together) because she managed to cram in so many things I like!

Now some pics! (I actually took a lot more- the box was so awesome but I don't want everyone's computer to crash so I'll post a few:)

the amazing boxes- who among us doesn't love a freak show!

Some of the goodies! Tons of beads and stuff, pendents, a two headed snake inspired by Lavern and Shirley's two headed king snake of the Venice Beach Freak Show (I can't believe I haven't seen that episode, Laverne and Shirley rock!) and a cute little sad ghost charm inspired by my favorite artist Marcel Dzama

Amazing Tim and Eric tiny magnets

A closeup of the other box (oops there were two boxes Smiley

Again Dzama inspired- don't you just love that tiny fish bone? I need to find the perfect project for it!

And the inside- tiny book, my first! A spotter's guide to Britain's  hybrid animals!

Thank you so much again for a fantastic swap FrankSpinello! I had a blast!

I am relieved and impressed that the freakshow didn't get bent. I didn't pack it particularly well. You got me, I did do some stalking. I must thank you, Teachart, for introducing me to Marcel Dzama!
So glad you like your parcel. I had to send both of the boxes, I made the Marcel Dzama box first and then the inspiration just hit me for the freakshow. So I had to make that one too. Then couldn't decide between them.
Thank you again for being such a great partner Teachart. I officially LOVE swapping.


The flippin' boxes in this gallery!

Too good!

Always up for a personal swap Smiley

Received from Cinnamoon today Grin Lots of cuteness! No sooner had I snapped some pics than the earrings went into my ears where they have stayed for the 6 hours since then:P
Here is a pic of the pretty box with adorable teeny button flowers on it, plus all the innards.

Here is a closer pic of the contents!

My faves are the earrings, the beautiful tree (which may end up as an ornament in one of my 1/12 scale dollhouse rooms), and the glass birdhouse bead. Although that sticker is pretty darned cute too, and so is the bone charm, and the crayon button... Obviously I love everything!
Thanks for a fun swap Cinnamoon Smiley

I got my matchboxes this last weekend and they are both AMAZING!!!

I took pics with my camera 2 days ago, but still can't find the cable to connect it to my computer, so I had to resort to using my camera phone, but here they are!

The first is from nllchihuahua:

The super-cute box:

And the awesome contents:

The second is from juliminustheE:

The gorgeous box:

And the incredible inside:

Complete with a passport, world map, and cash.

Thanks so much you two!!!
I love my boxes very, very much!!!

I received from dablondeemu. I love all things sea related.

Its a ship in a bottle matchbox!

and here is the matchbox I made her.
She said she likes robots so I made a robot ladybug thing.
