stuff and sky


I've stuffed 6 matchboxes
I like to make these with a theme in mind
such as:
(top row)
time for love, ocean memory, heartland
(bottom row)
spring fever, journey, a stitch in time

I like to think of these as the contents of an 8 year old child's pockets
emptied out before wash day

my next task is creating the outer sleeve
(a future post)

Oh Kim, I just adore your little treasure match boxes! I love the "ocean memory" but they are all really fantastic! Can't wait to see the sleeves.

Kimmie I love these delicate treasure boxes... whoever receives one will cherish it always. I have a matchbox from Mexico from a dear friend...so i love all the possibilities! Awesome, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Lovely. Simply lovely.

That sky looks ominous. But your match boxes look like something that I would empty from MY pockets (grin). Love them.

Gayle said...

Oooo your little boxes are so intriguing. I never knew you could fit so much into a tiny match box. I love all these little details...can't wait to see what comes next ???

GREAT!!!! Tiny Trinket Treasures,
and the sleeves will say it all. Maybe this is a new category of your arti products. Feel free to take the title if it pleases you. I love them.

Your sky portends some change in the weather. What will it be? Did you see my blog today? Peek: http://mscomfortzone.blogspot.com/2012/01/spirit-muse-sunday-on-seventh-day.html

Now those are tiny yet very interesting, like little treasures, which I love.
Hope that sky doesn't bring too bad of weather for you.

Lynn said...

I was excited to see how you would use all those items. Fun. Well done! And not the tops!

Elizabeth said...

We love our little matchboxes that we got from your site -- they have a special place in the living room and are opened and oohed and aahed over many times!

It looks like Monet grabbed your camera - such a gorgeous shot of an active sky. Now I'm intrigued by your little match boxes.

I love these little boxes and can't wait to see them in their final form... really intriguing and interesting... I am so happy to have caught up with your last few posts... you have been buried under snow while we have been drenched by hot and humid flooding summer rains... that snow looks pretty welcome actually...
thinking I may go and brew a pot of autumn Spice Tea and gaze at those snow shots and pretend it isn't disgustingly hot and humid...xx

seems to me each of your stuffed matchboxes has an underlying LOVE theme to them

each one a treasure!

I'm a sucker for all things small. I wish I was a recipient of one (or all) of these little match boxes. I especially even loved all the "stuff" spread out all over the table. That is the kind of stuff I could spend hours just looking at!

Halle said...

What fun little boxes...themed and everything. I love the thought of emptied pockets. All I find in my kids pockets are candy wrappers and since I don't check pockets...I find the wrappers in my washing machine.
