wow, great, thanks so much for doing that, sweets4ever. thank you! you are a good teacher (it turns out I was trying to use the URL in the Address line, not the properties! duh!)

mub received my tin finally!!  Yeah!

I combined her cats and orange theme and tried to add some retro and buttons in.  I stuffed in as much as I could:

Contents:


Hopefully, the contents will make mub "happy": I made a dupioni silk keepsake pouch, a "retro-looking" little book to keep good thoughts in, a re-decorated mini-mirror keychain, assorted kitty magnets and "clothespins", candy, "happy" perfume, tangerine lip balm, paper to make lucky stars, orange fishy tattoos, water balloons. Assorted buttons never made the photo shoot, they were too shy! All that squished in a round Altoids!  Oh...a lucky kitty was hiding in the crafting mess so, it made it to mub's place on it's own. 

the tin I decoupaged in and out with kitty pics and also wrote spiralling little "quotes" to live an "orangy" life by.  I hope you enjoy, mub!  this swap was fun, I loved doing it, thanks Qazicat for organizing.  All the tins have been great!

Here is Mub's great tin that she sent me, I love the trademark crocheted bracelet crafted especially for me!
