the 8th

So… I missed my thing-a-day yesterday. To be honest, I was having a bad day. I was trying to work on Swap-bot, but I came down with a bad case of cabin fever. Plus, the Superbowl really gets on my nerves. Finally, Travis broke down and took my out to dinner at Miriam, an Israeli restaurant near our apartment. It was wonderful. The place was empty and I had seafood risotto. A great start to my birthday week!


For day 8 of thing-a-day, I made this matchbox for my February Love Matchbox Swap. Today is the last day to send your swap package, so I cut it a little close to the deadline. I was going to send one of the previous matchboxes I had made for Etsy Craft Night, but I decided I wanted to make something new for my partner. She likes bright and bold colors. I hope she likes her package!

  1. So happy to see your bright love come my way this morning chez moi. After reading your post, I totally want to say I have had so many days like this. The Super Bowl makes me feel ignored and sometimes I feel stuck inside and without a creative spark.

    What did cheer us up was the matchbox valentine. I gave it to my husband Sunday morning during brunch and he was visibly moved by the whole thing. From unwinding the baker’s twine to the treat and card inside, it was like a gift that kept giving new surprises.

    Hope you liked the article I wrote for It’s the beginning!
