Let's have a St. Patrick's Day 32-count matchbox swap! Of course, the theme is St. Patrick's Day, and green is the color! So use any images that bring the holiday meaning for you. Your matchbox can be related to the actual Saint himself, or to the more secular side of the holiday, such as 4-leaf clovers, Irish images and sayings, etc!

Fill your matchbox with something cute or pretty: a green pair of St. Patrick's day earrings, or perhaps a handmade 4-leaf clover pin, or a lucky green stone or some such thing that is related to the topic of St. Patrick's Day in some way.

This is a quick, last minute swap to try to get a St. Patrick's box before the actual holiday on 3/17! So, we have til Sat. to sign up, but then a week to get it made and in the mail. It is a small matchbox, so, should be doable for most of us.

Totally sender's choice!!! If you join, you should be OK with getting something related to the real St. Patrick or something secular, so don't join if easily offended by saint images or the like. No drama! If you get a nice matchbox, sent on time, filled as described above that in some way references the holiday, a five is in order. I don't want to hear "I am not Catholic, and I'm offended by the picture of the saint" or "I am religious and I am offended by the fact that the matchbox has a picture of green beer on it." Acceptance of other's beliefs and respect for their art is key here.

Pic is a matchbox and zipper-pull made by lunagraphica of flickr--fine work by her!
