Jeska has confessed to being obsessed with vintage matchboxes and has longed to do a wee project with her collection that contains such treasures as vintage postage stamps and snippets of broken jewellery. So for the month of February she has set herself the challenge of turning 29 of these wee boxes into miniature, and I'm guessing highly collectible, works of art. I say 'highly collectible' as she will be offering each of them up for sale in her Etsy shop and donating the proceeds to her husbands chosen charity as he runs the London marathon!
You can follow Jeska's matchbox challenge on her beautiful blog and see the gorgeous creations she comes up with based on the daily themes she has set herself. Not only that but you can also join in if you wish to as we have all been invited to get creative with any wee matchboxes we might have handy, yay! I know I have one or two boxes lying around that my crafty fingers are keen to get hold of, not quite twenty nine I know but it will be fun to play along just a wee bit!
Do stop by Lobster and Swan to find out all the details and see the first matchbox, that is 'The Airmail One' pictured above. I love it already!
