Good Things....................

............come to those who wait, and good things come in small packages!!

My matchbox swap came in the mail- Woohoo!! What a wonderful job Donna did!!!
I took way too many pictures - but presentation is everything - and I wanted you to see what she did - step by step!!

Donna managed to squeeze about 50 items in this little box - I took a side view so you could see how CRAMMED it was!!!! I already have plans for the little red hand, the hinge, and the stork scissor charm!!!



Thank you, thank you - and I hope everyone had alot of fun with this swap - and I'm planning another after the holidays. A group swap and maybe a couple of individual swaps are in the making.

  2. Wow I did not know I crammed almost 50 things in the box! LOL! I stopped counting after 37, I could not help it, I just kept putting things in I thought you would like!(I tried to keep everything red-white or blue) heehee
    I want to do this again, it was so FUN!

  5. Very creative. We have that snowman playing piano as well--the kids have just about worn it out.

  6. I forgot to mention the little 'teacake' was PERFECT on the Hallmark snowman's piano!!!! And very cleverly made from one of those little battery operated "flames". I have those little flames under vintage glass insulators going up the stairs. Makes a great holiday look - . I love Donna's idea of turning the flame into a cake!!!

  11. Talk about BULGING. This is incredible. I would say Donna won the prize for the most stuffing. This is wonderful and I'm so happy for you, Pat. You were a terrific swap host!
