10, 11, 12 and 13

Between my stupid camera not working and just being busy I got behind on posting my little matchboxes. I received some really nice ones that I am excited to share with you!
I love this Santa picture! He looks like a jolly old soul!
Valarie included a little stocking ornament.
Thank you Valarie!

Here is my #10. It is a little snowman jumping for joy and

then a yo-yo ornament with a "joy" button on it.

My #11 box is from Linda of a Swap for All Seasons,
the hard working host of this swap.
I love the this box with the lace and jingle bell
and the little earrings that were on the
inside are really pretty!
Thanks Linda!

My Day #11 is a Gingerbread man with

some cut out gingerbread garland and a little candy ornament.

Here is box #12 in all it's beaded glory from

Ruth of Through My Gardens Gate.

Isn't this snowflake pretty?!?!
The earrings that were in the box are really nice too!
I love the color and can't wait to wear them!
Thanks Ruth!

My #12 is a stocking a with a little felt stocking that I made for the inside.

Box #13 is from Kathy McElroy.

The box is so beautifully decorated and then on the inside

there were three gorgeous little treasures
A Santa magnet, a little piece of pretend candy and a handmade tiny cloth ornament.
Thank you Kathy for all of the little treasures!

My box #13 is of a Christmas tree
and then I made a little piece of mini garland for the treasure.

I've been crocheting like crazy and my Mom ordered 30 Matchbox ornaments from that's pretty much what I've been doing for the last week. I have some really pretty ones I've made and I love all the ideas and inspriation I've gotten from all of the other bloggers. Have a wonderful day! I'm off to crochet again.

I love seeing all of your pictures. These are so neat. I hope to join some swaps next year. Hey, I have been meaning to tell you that I have learned to crochet dish cloths!!! I am going crazy doing them. I love it because they are easy and quick. I figured that would be an easy project for a beginner like me. Merry Christmas!!!
