Diane Bouchard is a mixed media artist, and very talented. She was one of my partners in the "Petite Box Swap Flea Market edition" recently, and sent me this decorated matchbox. Isn't this so clever and so vintage!! I love the way she used the typewriter keys, for my initials. And that little ribbon embellishment is wonderful!
Erica Hofstetter of Zunky Chic. com. Her style is so similar to mine. She says that we must have the same DNA. I agree we are Kindred Spirits. We put some of the same things in our boxes. She sent an old piece of Chenille, and I am already using that one. I love the way she decorated the box too. She used an old pattern instruction paper. I love adding more buttons to my collection, and well it was just so me. Anyone out there that doesn't think that a matchbox swap isn't fun is fooling themselves. It is amazing the amount of stuff that will fit into one of these standard size matchboxes. Thanks to Heather for hosting this swap, over at The Speckled egg.
Laurie of Indulge your Shelf. She expressed a feeling of DARN as she missed Heathers swap, cause it was too full. So I will be getting a new one soon. I will post that exchange later.
