The Bird Song Swaps - Matchboxes

Another fun swap at Bird Song 2013 were our matchboxes, hosted by Gail & Marj Sell.  Participants were matched with a partner.  Partners were encouraged to learn one another's interest and then create a work of art using an empty large kitchen matchbox, include a bird somewhere on it, after all this is Bird Song, and then fill it with goodies. 

Here are our participants receiving their matchbox swap

Group matchbox photos - incredible talent here!

My adorable matchbox was from Hope  
and it was filled to the brim with wonderful goodies!
Thank you Hope!

This is the matchbox I created for my swap partner Suzanne

Two more swaps to go...
Four projects to go...
See you again soon.

Don't forget if you use Google Reader, it expires on July 1st.  You'll need to transfer your blog list to another reader before then.
