Swaps received, sneak peak of swaps sent out, and something I have made for a new swap

Well I haven't done much of anything this last week gone I've been battling getting over this horrid chesty thing I came down with given to me by Max now talk about one horrid bug...
Last night I altered a little foldable box that I've made for a new swap I'm in yes I will show and tell but just not going to say who it's going too so this is it.
I also have my tea caddy box already to alter for my private swap with Tabitha of Creativewings now I'm also hoping I can use one of these for the back to school cigar box swap seeing as I can't find a cigar box anywhere yes they have them but all the places I went to they were all out of stock so grrrrr....
So this is the box I'm altering were doing our boxes with a Paris inspired theme so think pink and girly so can't wait to get this box altered.....
Okay I've got a couple of swaps in the mail this last week so wanted to show and tell firstly were my petite bead box swaps from my partners Julia and Chenoa this is what I sent them this one is to Julia and it went to Russia and the other one went to Chenoa who lives here in Oz.
And these are my lovely boxes from the girls so thankyou both loved the goodies inside and can't wait to make a piece of jewellery with the contents inside.....

Now just a couple of sneak peaks at my swaps sent out for the Seaside Swap and the Shabby Vintage swap

Okay now I have a crazy pyscho kitty who loves to scratch my couch now we have just gone and brought leather reclining sofas so hubby said we had to buy him a scratching post before our sofas got delivered on Tuesday so I spotted this little scratch post while out shopping yesterday and had to get it....
But alas yes he scratches on it but I heard him scratching our sofa this morning so grrrrrr....

Okay I went shopping online the other day at Scrap matrix now Rae is having a monthly special and the one for this month is a beauty her hot deal for the month is on her Germanscrap trims so click on the link and go shopping and stock up www.scrapmatrix.com.au
