First Attempt: Altered Matchboxes

I have seen several beautiful matchboxes online and they are swapped over at swap-bot. I've always wanted to give them a try and now I've made three. Nothing fancy really but still I find them cute. lol

Aren't they beautiful??? If only they were available here from where am at I'd prolly have a huge box filled with 'em. *sigh*

Don't get me wrong I don't sew ... like cooking it is not my cup of tea but I love them especially those flatback ones and in various shapes and colors. They make great embellishments for scrapbooking, lets take a look at my buttons stash ... :)

Birthday Present

It didn't really arrive on time but it was a wonderful surprise. It came from a new found friend via swap-bot, lets take a look at them.

- from Nicci, birthday card, ribbons and bubble stickers for my scrapbooking stash -

Isn't that sweet?? I so love it when I get random envies from beautiful people all over the world. I sent her a random envie of goodies couple of weeks back, hope it gets to her in time for Christmas.

Swaps Received

Here are some pics I've taken of the goodies I have received from my swap partners at Let's take a look at them.

- from girlyswirls for the Surprise swap -

- from Apricorn for the Happy Mail # 4 Swap -

- from Pansysuz for the Pick Two Tag -

- from moosemama for the Grab Bag Tag -

I am having so much fun at swap-bot, I've met really nice and talented ladies there. Being so busy with my swaps and tags there I haven't had time to check on at friendscircle which I should do after this. Need to check with Maja if she got my envie for the rubber stamps!

For Isabel

I signed up for on a Wish List Swap at swap-bot but unfortunately the host deleted the swap after the sign-up deadline. There were 4 of us in the swap, 1 participant messaged me about doing a private swap for our wish list. The requirement was to send at least 3 items from the list, above is a photo of the goodies I picked for her before I packed them up. Hope they get to her before Christmas.

Pens, Pens, and Lots of Pens

I have this habit of buying things that I find "cute and irresistible" when window shopping. So apart from my personal pen collection, I've managed to acquire several ball pens which I think of as "stock" for future swap partners at swap-bot who might like them. Take a look ...

The Monokuro Boo pens on the left have blue inks, the ones in the middle have blue inks and the ones on the right have black inks.
