Thanks for your nice comments guys! I'm glad you like everything OriginalYouth. I had a lot of fun doing this swap and doing the themes she chose. OriginalYouth was an awesome swap partner.
I'll post the pics I took before I sent her package out.

you can see the bottom of the tin with the stars Smiley my boyfriend loves batman and now wants a batman tin to keep at work! I guess I make superhero tins now!

the icecream theme inside

And all the loot Smiley
OriginalYouth's daughter looks so cute with everything Smiley
I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

Thanks for posting those, they are MUCH better pics.  Yeah, I forgot to mention the stickers, but anyone who knows kids knows they disappered immediately!  She's holding a little card that she put them on with the tin in the prior pic.

I love the tins posted so far! I have this thing about Wonder Woman, so that one is pretty awesome. Everything looks great though...I am hoping to get working on mine this week.

Ta-da!  Another incredible tin for the gallery.  I got a great one from Stifflersmom today!  When I unwrapped the box, I figured it would be interesting.

Ha!  But it got better when I opened it.  Lookie, lookie, lookie!

Mmmmmm.  Lime Jell-O with carrots.    Tongue Cheesy
That's some kind of plastic doily thing under the food.  I think the Jell-O salad may be resin.  But I'm not positive.  It has glitter and bugle beads for shredded carrots. 

The glorious inside, including a pink paper doily: 

Awesome goodies.  I put them all on, Liberace-style.


The shrinky swallow hair clips didn't show up so well in the photo, but they're great.  (And, yes, that's craft mess in the background.)
I don't know how, but somehow Stifflersmom has a sixth sense for my taste.  I love the nest pin, and the "I'm in the doghouse" pin, but there's one that's just uncanny.  She sent me two resin-and-bottlecap pins (a retro snowman photo, and "la muerte" skeleton with floating watch parts).  Love them.  The funny thing is that I just bought a brooch with watch parts from norsgoebel's etsy shop this week.  It arrived two days ago, and I wore it yesterday.  And the one she sent is entirely different and wonderful.  How does Stifflersmom know that I'm a fan of such things?  Is it witchcraft?

Anyway, some more pictures.  She put some awesome Jell-O salad magnets in the box, but I don't think it's cheating if they stick to the tin itself!


The bottom of the tin.  Gosh, I'm getting less and less hungry by the minute!


Here's my former "candy dish," which I've used since I emptied a tin to recon for her. 

And now: 
Much better!

Thank you, Stifflersmom!  I love it all!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

STIFFY - Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!  That is the greatest tin!!!  I love the jello and, well all of it.  I have to get me some of that there resin stuff!  The little cake is too cute! Good job.  I better get back to my tin and spiff it up a bit more.

Stiffy does it yet again! This woman never ceases to amaze me.

And what on earth is that thing on the back? Yet another tasty aspic recipe involving corn & broccoli?

I don't see broccoli.  It looks like a canned mixed vegetable (think Veg-All) aspic.  With cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and green onions as garnish (and as the only edible items on the plate).
