I don't participate in many swaps but one that is a favorite of mine is Heather Rowley's Petite Inspiration Swap. You take a simple match box and cover it with vintage papers,fabric or wall paper and adorn it to the theme of the swap. The fun part is tucking in tiny vintage treasures. I love creating these tiny boxes. This last swap was the Vintage Flea Market Style Edition. Over 60 women participated in the swap! My swap partners were Michelle of Petite Michelle Louise and Kristin of Sweet Dreams Art Studio. Each of these sweet ladies took great care to create a box with lovely vintage detail. I was not disappointed. Take a look at the wonderful boxes and tiny treasures I received.

Kristin created this pretty flower from vintage tidbits that she added to our packages. My LuLu wants to wear it in her hair!
Thank you so much Kristin.
I was in a mad dash to get my packages in the post to meet the deadline. I was not able to take a picture of the boxes I created. I borrowed this image from Michelle!
