Today seems to be cooler than Yesterday and that's great news for me, because I hate sewing when It's hot I always get all sweetie eww, I was sewing late at night and I'm almost done with the motorcycle bag, and let me say it's coming along great, Now I'm sewing the inner pockets and the straps and then star cutting the other bag, they're cute big and heavy and my arms hurt a bit for lifting it. I also made a precious pin cushion for the ::: Bag of Treats :: Swap I'm preparing, photos of that one soon ;).

Anyway here is what I'm sending to the :CRAFT Matchbox Swap: the theme for this month is - Fruity Craft Supplies-, as soon as I read the theme title i knew I had to join in because I love fruits.

I love apples and I couldn't pass out the opportunity to decorate the matchbox with juicy colorful apples :), this time I didn't paint the box just cover it with a pattern I printed.

image


Fabrics, ribbon, trims,beads,buttons,embroidery floss, a strawberry pincushion and other embellishments are in this little pack , I hope my partner likes it. I had lots of fun putting all these items together.

image

This is another pack I sent to moofin from flickr, this is just a peak because I added more things to the swap.

Today I'm gonna try and finish the motorcycle bag and another small bag I'm doing for a the Bag of treats swap :), I already cut the pieces form one of my favorite Japanese fabrics :), it's going to look so pretty. Well take Care and Enjoy the weather!

And I was lucky enough to receive this lovely surprise from Ann Disaster from flickr ^_^ a Mushie matchbox filled with kawaii stickers and a monkey pin

She also send me some Japanese sweets and 5 adorable postcards from my favorite Illustrator.

:: Painting Matchboxes ::

It's a little hot today, It's almost 10:30 and my head is starting to hurt, I not very comfortable in hot weather, I love to sew and when it gets too hot is impossible to sit in one place and concentrate.
Anyway I hope you're having better weather over there :)

I've been painting lately, suddenly I've been having lots of inspiration maybe because I need to practice for some interesting art projects :), Here are 2 matchboxes I painted, i hope you like them :)

image


oh! bunny :), I choose to paint bunnies because I want to use these in upcoming swaps and a cute bunny suits the theme for this month.

image


One pink and the other purple :), I used acrylics and glitter to give the clouds a little texture, they measure 3" tall and 2.5 wide

image


I also wanted to paint a blue one but I run out of boxes, I recycle them from my gastritis prescription lol I have to take 2 pills daily so I end up with a lot of empty boxes :) I prefer to decorate them instead of making more garbage.

image


And look at the goodies I got form the :Super kawaii Swap :: a private swap at Swap-bot, my partner Drewzel knows how to please a kawaii maniac like me, loved everything specially the cram cream deco-tape and the elephant stationery.
THANKS A BUNCH DREWZEL, LOVE ALL THE GOODIES YOU SENT


Well I'll show you more of the goodies I got in another post, now I have to clean this desk and I want to sew something today, it's been a while, I need to make me a pouch or a little bag for an upcoming swap :)

Take Care ♥ and
Have a Crafty Day!
