Pink Saturday and Matchbox Swaps

Hi ! :) Welcome to another Happy Pink Saturday by our Hostess, Sweet Beverly. Thank you SO much Beverly for being such a wonderful steward of all of the fun and friendships you have carved out for each of us in Blogville. :) I hope that you go and visit each of the Pink Girls celebrating Pink Saturday this week and send a Big Cyber Hug to Beverly. :)

I realized I never shared the last Speckled Egg's matchbox swap I was in from several months ago. I had two REALLY awesome partners. I cant wait to show you what they sent me, but since both boxes they made for me were a soft Yummy aqua, I will share them with you on Sunday. :)

Marian was my partner that loves PINK, Yippee !! She doesn't have a blog or a flikr, but she has been in a lot of swaps and makes the most beautiful things. I made this box for her to enjoy.I used some of my Hoarded stash of goodies for both boxes. Marian's box had some yummy vintage pink and aqua wallpaper, gorgeous old hand crocheted laces, vintage rhinestones and roses. I forgot to take pictures of the innards. I really enjoyed meeting her, what a sweet gal !! I can honestly say I have LOVED every partner I have ever been Blessed with. I have met some amazing and sweet women from across this Country :)

Next is JoAnne's box. JoAnne is from Vintage Dragonfly, and is an awesome artist as well !! I was SO truly Blessed by these two !! :) JoAnne loves all things Cream and White, so here is the box I made for her, Here they are together. I wanted to make them similar, but tailored to each girl. I want to thank you all for cleaning out my etsy !! Everything is now mailed so tomorrow afternoon, I will go ahead and list the cakes and stands I shared last week :) I am trying to answer your blog questions and emails , I had a few Bed days this week, so please know you will hear from me by Tomorrow hopefully :) Oh, and the partners are all paired and I will send out the emails for those too tomorrow. PLEASE don't think I have forgotten any of you :)

I wish you a Wonderful Pink Saturday !!! I hope you are all enjoying Spring !!! I sure am !!

Hugs :) :)

Those are so beautiful...I am always in awe of your gorgeous work! So, tell me, do you buy matchboxes brand new, dump the matches and decorate or do you send the matches in the boxes? Sounds silly...but this craft is a new one to me! :) They're just beautiful!

Rhea, everything is so pretty and I think when I get to feeling better, I would like to try and alter some match boxes. They look like they are fun. I have some round cans that I want to alter and I think I can go about it the same way. Also love all your Easter goodies. Thanks for stopping by. It means a great deal to me, even if it's only a few people. I hope that you continue to feel better and keep making those beautiful things you make. Big Hugs, Pat
