Clattering on......

Well not quite but I have been very busy working at the school and finishing up my matchbox swap for "A swap for all seasons". I said clattering on because over at the school we have been working with the kids on their songs and props for the Harvest show and "Big red combine harvester" is one of the songs and the lines keep playing over and over in my head. Yesterday was the show so hopefully the song will not be stuck in my head too much longer. As far as this swap goes It is getting harder to come up with the little trinkets to put inside each one. The decorating is the easy part. Here are some of my completed matchboxes. We have to make 25 of them. I am using Graphic 45 papers to decorate them with.



And here are some of the little trinkets I have put inside.... just a little peek as I do not want to spoil the surprise for whomever gets them.


I have also been working on a couple of other projects but I am unable to post the yet. Tomorrow my DH has taken off to spend the entire day with me, well at least until Belle is out of school then we are taking her to the Chinese Circus. She just loves a good circus and this one looks like a lot of fun. but Shhhhh.....Its a surprise for her. She will just love it.....Well I better get back to my work and finish up these matchboxes so I can get them in the post. Thanks for all the comments lately I really look forward to reading them and appreciate each and every one. Thanks for following and have a great day. Angela

These match boxes are just wonderful. Love the graphic 45 paper line, it is one of my favorites.

Your matchboxes are all gorgeous. I love the Graphic 45 paper range too. Glad to hear you are getting a day out, hope Bell enjoys the circus. We must catch up soon. Lynne x
