Matchbox #1


In October I participated in A Swap for All Seasons matchbox swap of giant proportions! It involved 70 swappers that created 25 matchboxes, one to open each day of December, the 1st to the 25th.

These are the matchboxes I created each with a surprise tucked inside (don't want to give it away for anyone).


Today is day one and we finally got to open one! It was hard to wait. Even Grace remembered this morning when I told her it was the first day of December, she declared, "we get to open a matchbox!" :-)

The first one was created by Kim over at BlackBerry Crows Prims. I just love the charm she made and can't wait to add it to our Christmas tree (just have to go get it!). Thank you Kim!
