Swaps At Swap-bot and a Contest Entry

Tequila Matchbox Shrine 32 ct

I just finished making this as an example for a "Tequila Matchbox Shrine", I will host at guessed it, swap-bot. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It's way more sparkly in real life. You can really see the glitter or sequins.

Matchbox painting tip: If you're going to paint the original outside of the matchbox, paint a coat of primer on 1st! This will save you many a coat that you'll have to put on.

Self Portrait ATC Swap

My very 1st ATC! Yaya! Now I'm hooked. The theme of this one was "Self Portrait". I'm a photographer so this was perfect for me. I have a gazillion pictures on my computer and this is the most recent one that I took while testing my lights. It was sent to Aislinn who lives in the Philippines.

Flat Rate Envie Of Fun

This is what I sent Adriana over at Swap-bot. She really likes the color orange, Frank Iero (from My Chemical Romance), Vampires and stickers.

The package includes:
Frank Iero bookmark & a ATC
Orange striped notebook
Little deer ATC kit
Cute owl ATC kit
Polymer clay orange tart cell charm
Polymer clay lolli necklace
Trident chicklet
2 orange pixie sticks
A mixed CD of the music that inspired Stephanie Meyer as she wrote the Twilight Saga.

Matchbox Shrine

Hello and welcome to my new blog! Okay so here's a Big matchbox (250 ct) shrine that I entered in a "Wish Upon A Star contest here. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. By the time I finished, I had glitter all over my face.

Fairies, Gnomes & Whimsy ATC Swap

Here are 2 ATC's that I sent off for the Fairy, Gnome & Whimsy ATC swap at Swap-bot. I hope they like them as I am still new to the whole ATC thing. I think it's really cool though! You get to turn a 3.5x2.5 card into a little canvas. The skies the limit!

Owl ATC Swap

We had to make 4 Owl ATC's and incorporate some to do with February in there. I incorporated hearts in all of mine. Hearts remind you of February...right?


  1. I love these.They are simply adorable.Your ATC's are very well done.Owls are awesome.

  2. Love how yours turned out! Such a fun swap that was.
