Party Matchbox Swap

Well I've finally finished 
my two matchboxes 
Petite Inspiration
~Birthday Edition~

I don't get involved in many swaps,
Not because I don't like them 
I'm usually so busy just trying to keep up
with Ebay my 2 Etsy Shops
and my Real Estate business...

But when I came across Heathers Blog 
Speckled Egg
She was organizing a Swap
I jumped on it!

She always has such great swap ideas
 very organized and run so smooth..

I must say I was a bit challenged..
My partners are two talented artists..

It has really been fun, finding just the perfect
little special delights for each...

I'll share the boxes that I receive when they arrive~

Last week I was running low on my
Vintage bump chenille so I went to one of
my favorite Shops to get some more yummy
plush chenille....
always comes packaged so sweet
just like getting a gift in the mail!

So I was able to get busy creating 

Looking forward to the weekend
I had to postpone my visit with my Mom
everyone at the house got that nasty flu
so I'll be heading out there Friday morning.

No Treasure hunting for me this weekend...
 theres always next week...
