Here we go! This is what I got from Rackycoo. She used by theme of "Time".

The goodies inside are a fancy watch, a chocolate (because she said in her card, its always time for chocolate!), a book thong that says "Time to Read" and this absolutely amazing teeny tiny appointment book. I'll let her explain how its made because I have not clue, but it has a hard cover and the pages are sewn in! Its not much bigger than a US quarter, as you can see in the picture. The cover is a beautiful olive silk.

OH! and the tin has tiny little feet so its stands up off the table. I couldn't get a good shot of those, though.

Thank you so much Rackycoo! I'm super super lucky to have gotten you as a partner!

Here are the pics...There are a lot of them.

I am impressed. It's creative and so thoughtful. I like how every item revolves around the one theme, and that watch is wow. The nostalgic sepia feel is a good touch too.

That little man on the inside is so cute.  Amazing details with the little tiny sprockets and it looks antique.

ooooohhhhh, rackycoo, if I only had one of your creative bones!

They are tiny little wooden beads. Smaller than a pea.

I'm glad you got the tin, amaryllisroze, and its little feet stayed on!

The book is just bound the usual way. I have just started doing some binding, and I wanted to see if I could do a tiny one! It was fun to try, but I don't think I'd make a habit of it. Here's a great tutorial if anyone is interested in book binding: http://personal.mem.bellsouth.net/d/r/drv1913/0204.html

I loved the "time" theme, and I had so much fun making that for you. I will be watching my mailbox closely tomorrow; I think I might get lucky!

Thanks, qazicat, for organizing. I always love doing the altiod tins!
