14, 15, 16 & 17 Plus Some Extra Ones

Sorry I'm running behind again! I've been in La-La Land lately....busy making gifts and then both of my parents have had some major health problems this week so I have been mentally distracted. Please keep my mom and especially my dad in your prayers. Mom had a stint put in the other day and my Daddy found out his cancer is getting worse and he has to have surgery on Monday. My parents being sick is really hard on me and quite frankly, I am not the least bit prepared for the please keep us in your thoughts. Thanks!

Day 14 box is such a heart warming little box.
I Love the box, but the photo warms my heart.
Thanks Heidi for this charming little box!

My Day 14 Box is of a poinsettia

and there's a little ornament of a poinsettia that I made for the inside.

Day 15 is from Linda of Lambs World.
The box is so pretty!
Linda made the tiniest little ornament and it says
"See the Artist Within"
and has an eye on it.
Thank you Linda!
Your box and ornament are so sweet!

The day 15 box I made has some Christmas Candies
on the inside and outside of the box.

Day 16's box is from Peace of The Art of Peace.
Peace made this "Angelic" little box. It is so pretty!
Inside Peace made a little button ornament.
Thanks Peace!
I LOVE the box and little button treasure!

The day 16 box that I made has a picture of the
Eiffel Tower on it and a little postage stamp.
On the inside I made some little tiny Christmas cards
and put them on a string for garland.
I thought these turned out pretty darn cute!

Elena made this little box with a snowman charm on the front
and then attached a breast cancer ribbon charm to the top with a pink straight pin.
On the inside Elena painted the word "Hope"
and then there is a pin and
the cutest little beaded bee charm.
Thanks Elena your work is beautiful!

The Day 17 box that I made has a little Christmas tree
on the front and a yo-yo with a Christmas tree button
on it made into a tiny ornament.
received my box.

I finished 34 ornaments to send to my mom and here are 5 of them. It has been really nice seeing everyone's matchboxes and coming up with some new ideas. I used photo's and stamps on the outside of these boxes and then added some little handmade Christmas Cards and some prepurchased ornies in some of the boxes.

You are not going to believe it, but I found this great site for matchboxes, and realized it was a swap. I thought of you and copied it to send to you. But I see on your sidebar, you already found it. Funny!! It looks like a really fun one. I love all the different ideas, so charming. Have a blessed Christmas week, Lisa
