I just wanted to share with you an altered matchbox that I received in a swap. The artist Robin Sanchez gave me permission to take some pictures and share with you what a wonderful little matchbox I was lucky to receive. Robin and I first traded art in Oct. 08, when she signed up for a swap I was hosting at flicker "Got Bling". Her work just charms me, the colors she uses and the professional quality of her work really stands out. She taught me that the back of these 4 x 4 chunky book pages should be as interesting and beautiful as the front. A sticker with your name on it just isn't enough, she really raised the bar for me.
I made up a little story about my matchbox........It's a LOVE STORY about a man and a woman. He said he would love her til the end of the earth. He gave her a promise and the key to his heart. Then she found all these other pictures of beautiful women in his wallet....THE END......DIANE

You can see more of LtlBlonde at flicker and a little sample of her Got Bling Page here

What a lovely set you received! Thanks for sharing it so the rest of us could see it up close! Lovely!

I'm sorry I've been such a stranger - weird last few weeks. But it's so fun to catch up with you today. So many lovely things going on! Your jewelry pieces are just gorgeous!

Hope you have a great weekend and get to spend some time creating and then taking breaks in your yard "cave" (which looks delightful!)!

Diane, I love the match box. I have been toying with a match box idea for a project......I'm now inspired to proceed! Thanks for the shove.

Best Wishes,
