Woo Hoo!! I finished them ~ all 25 of them! These matchboxes are for "A Swap For All Seasons" current swap ~ "Countdown to Christmas". Linda (our very efficient, very clever, very special swap hostess) came up with this great idea for a swap. We each (all 75 of us) make 25 little matchboxes filled with a tiny goodie ~ then we number them 1-25. Next we packaged them very carefully and mailed them off to Linda. She will fondle, sort and package up 25 matchboxes (from 25 different ladies) and mail them back to each of us! That Linda is one
crazy special gal!! The large "merry" matchbox is for her ~ no peeks inside of it 'cause it's a surprise! But look below for some peeks at the bottle-cap magnets I tucked inside #s 1 through 25.
I can't wait to receive my matchboxes! Linda added a little twist to our swap too! Beginning on Dec. 1st we'll each be sharing our matchboxes and the tiny treasure inside. One a day, every day, until Christmas! Doesn't this sound like fun!!
Hmmmm.....now what to do with all these matches????? I'll think of something! For now I think they look cute right where they are!
All packaged up and ready to go ~ which they did ~ straight to the post office on Tuesday, Oct 13th. I actually made the October 15th mailing date.....double Woo Hoo!
