I received my wonderful tin from MissNoemi today and I love it. She chose Paris as the theme

top

mini Metro map,keychain and magnet made of eurocents

The Arc d'Triomphe and Tour Eiffel done in quilling-I love these because I haven't seen quilling done in awhile. They are so delicate.I love miniatures

The cutest teeny little scarf and beret

More quilling inside

And she knittted a super soft little altoid "cozy". I love all of it. I had two super swap partners this round Kiss Kiss Kiss

I received my tin from balkandina today, and it is adorable! My camera is currently hiding (hmmm), but as soon as I hunt it up, I'll post pictures. Smiley

You know I hate it soooo much when you receive something that you know is better than what you sent.  OMG I received today from Knickertwist and I absolutely love it.   The tin she sent is beautiful and the stuff inside is just as wonderful.  I'm so happy with everything.  I can't do photos right now but will either later tonight or tomorrow I promise.

Ok here are the pics from my wonderful, gorgeous tin I received from Knickertwist.  She went with my voodoo theme but I love that she touched on 2 more of my themes also.  Beaded and tarot.  Beware lots of pics cause I love love love it soooooo much.

The top....the side of the tin is also beaded all the way around.


The bottom....


The inside...voodoo tarot cards


All the goodies inside....serpetine stone, mojo bag and a chicken bone. 


a beautiful "voodoo queen charm bracelet" that I can't wait to wear and veve pin...I need to learn the meaning of the veve pin but she says it's like the yin/yang symbols.


And my all time fave....I have so wanted a voodoo doll for so long and now I have an authentic one all of my own.  I have him standing in the tin so you can see him complelty. 



I can't wait to find a few minutes and do some googling to find out the history of Marie Laveau (I've heard of her but haven't read the whole story) she is the woman on the tin. 

Thank you so much Knickertwist I love it all so much.  I also have to say I spent a lot of time on your website and will be going back soon.  I've been reading some books on Wicca lately and found it more than coincidental that we were paired together. 

Thank you again.  I hope you enjoy your tin.

Awe shucks, thanks folks. It was a lot of fun to make... although the tin proved to be a little bit of a nightmare to begin with. The wanga/voodoo dollie was especially fun to make and I'm glad of it because my hubby wants one for his car now.

I think I really might need instructions on how to make the doll cause I want one for work, home, the car, and I know my friends are going to want them once they see mine.  LOL
