I figuredI'd go ahead and post the one I made for Keylowatt. She listed tattoos as one of her interests, so I made a Sailor Jerry Collins shrine...

I'm such a dork that the little lights around the sailor jerry pic/bio are battery operated and light up and blink... Wink

Oh man, I almost did something with lights too!  I love what you made it in, I couldn't find anything like that so I used a tin (and that was hard enough to find, there are no Altoids here!).  I've taken a pic too but I'll wait until princess_me gets it before putting it up - I want her to be the first to see!

You US folks must be starting to receive your shrines, right?  More pics please!

Yay, photobucket's back up!  This is the shrine that Barbi (norsgoebel) sent me.  I love it!  She managed to fit in all of my interests, how cool is that?

i got my absolutely fabulous shrine from bkrenning4 today!  it really is the best, most elaborate, detailed, incredible thing ever!  It's dark green with a total garden theme.  on the outside there are flowers and a little picket fence and little trees. the inside has mini flower pots and gardening tools and seed packets and a hose and a gardening hat and beautiful pressed fall leaves.  bk-i hope you can post a picture.  if not, i will hunt down a camera, it just might take a while. 

i'll be sending my shrine this week, definitely by thurs, the mail-by date.  i got a little behind because i lost power for 3 days when ivan passed through.

i'd definitely be up for another one of these!

I forgot to take a picture!  Please, oh, please, find a camera!  I would love for you to post a picture.  I am so glad you liked it!  You said you enjoyed gardening and were a botany major, so I wanted to do something special with those interests!  Take care.

Yay!  I hope you liked it.  I'm glad it arrived safely.  The tin has had a rather dubious past (it belonged to a friend of mine) so I was a little worried about Customs and sniffer dogs...





The best part about doing this shrine was the elephant.  I think I've got a picture of how ugly and evil-looking it was before I started working on it!  I haven't got time right now but I'll dig it up.

I made a box out of thin cardboard (from a cracker box) and stapled the fabric to the bottom of it.  Then I hot glued it into the tin.

I'm so inspired by all of these fun shrines that I have to make one for a friend's birthday! I really like the idea of using an altoid tin, but I was also wondering where everyone got those cool mini wardrobe looking boxes. Are they smaller than they look in the pics? I'm particularly in awe of the tattoo shrine!

bkrenning4, glad you liked your shrine!!!  i had fun making it.  figured that since you liked celestial stuff and the outdoors, i could go with a nighttime/sleepytime theme. 

**edit**
i got my shrine today in the mail!  i love that the inside is 3-D.  here are some pics.  thanks so much!!  not sure of your craftster name...

Okay, bear with me, I'm going to gush...

I have to say that the swaps are the best example of why I love Craftster.  I absolutely LOVE how you can take a theme and then see how several people interpret that theme in totally different ways!  I am so inspired when I see what other people have done and think, "Oh, cool, I would never have thought of that!"  There are so many creative people here!

Does anyone have any tips on painting the box? I just used several coats of metal paint on mine, but it ended up not closing right (didn't want to ruin the paint).
And primer only comes in these HUGE jars i'm sure i'd never finish.

This is the shrine I made for funkyolive.  She said she liked India, so I couldn't resist making her a mini Ganesh shrine. 

The outside of the box:


Ganesh and his rat:


Ganesh and his pal are polymer clay. The mirror in the back is attached with shisha embroidery.  Take it from me:  think long and hard before you consider using gold embroidery floss!

I want to post and apologize for not saying anything sooner about the shrine I received from CTGirl.  I took pictures of it, and I was waiting to be able to post with the pics, but I have to get DH to help me get the pics from the camera to the computer.  I hate to admit I don't know how, but DH is in grad school and is constantly writing 20-page papers, and I live in fear that I'll accidentally do something to the computer... I'm somewhat computer savvy, but he has our computer set up in "his own special ways"...  Roll Eyes

Anyway, I'll tell about it, and hopefully still post pics of it soon (I've got pics of the shrine I sent to Gretchen, too).  Ruth did a cool job of actually researching shrines as used in Voudun or Santeria, and made a shrine like that, which is especially cool for me, since last semester I took a class about Caribbean culture, and got interested in it  Smiley  I did not mention that to Ruth, but I did mention as a possible theme that my DH and I have been trying to have a baby for some time, so the shrine has a fertility theme, including a little baby and a prayer to a voudun saint and some symbols of that saint.  It's really cool -- she definitely did some homework in making it!

Pics coming soon, I hope I hope...

I actually have pictures of the wonderful 'HAPPY' shrine the xmelinda sent me - I'll post them for her so you don't have to wait.  I would have posted them earlier but I am having MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF GUILT for already having my shrine and not sending hijole her shrine yet.  Bad swapper.  Bad swapper.

Thanks for the compliment!  I had so much fun making it -- I'd never made one before, so it was fun to brainstorm it.  Because it involved a lot of waiting for paint to dry and waiting for polyurethane to dry and waiting for glue to dry, I made it over several days, and I'd walk past it and think of something else to put in it or on it.  I made it out of an Altoids tin because I had this idea of a portable box of "happy", like if you need some happy, open the box.  Inside is a heart pin that you can wear if you need cheering up, and a necklace for the same reason, some fortune cookie fortunes with positive affirmation-type messages, a lucky penny, some Body Shop Satsuma perfume (wearing it always cheers *me* up) and the lyrics to the Joe Raposo song, "Sing" (you know the one, from old-time Sesame Street, "don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear, just sing, sing a song").  The little frame I made so that Gretchen could put in pics of things that make her happy  Smiley

Thanks for posting the pics, Gretchen, yours came out better than mine, anyway.  Mine always have too much flash.

And speaking of too much flash  Roll Eyes, here finally is a pic of the shrine Ruth sent!

Here's the front cover:


And the incredible inside:


For some reason, I can't seem to make the bottom image larger.  If I figure it out, I'll edit it so you can see more detail.
