I love making matchboxes


I have never bought and wasted so many matches in my life.never having been a smoker
i had not had a great deal to do with matchboxes.Now i go through them like a chainsmoker.
Well okay like a few chain smokers.I love to do matchbox swaps and more than that i think i am pretty good at them.You are given a theme and you must decorate and fill your matchbox to match the theme.Like a tiny work of art i love love love em.Here is my favorite i have done because it was through a matchbox swap i met my kindred spirit Daisy in England.
See how technology meets craft in such a great way.

Hi Jules
Thankyou for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog...awh it made my day!
I love your matchbox, very creative, you must have loads of patience not to mention imagination, I don't think I'd know where to start.

That one is so pretty! I've seen a few when people show their swaps and I'm always amazed by everyone's creativity when working with such a little thing!

Hi Jules! It's been awhile since I've visited and just wanted to say hi! I think you made me my first banner over a year ago. Looks like your doing great and your matchbox is fabulous. Blessings to you!

Oh cool...I keep seeing matchbox swaps on swap-bot.com but I haven't seen any photos of completed one to actually get an idea of what is involved. Looks fun...I might have to try one :)
