My pretties, let me show you them.

Calsters chose my word/grammar theme. So here I have this nifty little lettertin with the vowels on the top, and on the bottom.... that mystery letter 'Y' - is it a vowel, is it a consonant, or does it straddle the divide between the two?

Open it up and.....

Oooooh.... more letters.

Let's have a better look at that booty

Whoah. What a lot of letterbeads. AND a couple of pieces of the niftiest little robot fabric I ever did see.

Thanks SO much, Calsters - yours should be with you soon.

Here is the fantastic goodness that I got from MEshelltakeone

The top of the tin!  a Baaa Baaa Black sheep!

I've been wanting one of these polymer clay covered tins of my own... and now I finally have one!!!  It is now the home to my many stitch markers!

the insides!  Rilo Kiley!!!  I'm happy that MEshelltakeone picked this one!!

oh wait!  that's not all!!

a whole flock of alpha sheep magnets!

If you can't tell, my two themes that she picked was sheep, and Rilo Kiley.  I love it! 

I just want to say

The Letter themed tin is so cute! Very creative and fun little stuff inside there too!  Kiss

The Rilo Kiley/Sheep tin is neat-o too. I like the sculpey outside.. who doesn't love sheep!? So precious! Also, I love Jenny Lewis (Rabbit Fur Coat is such a good album! Grin)

The carnival tin! Sweeet! It looks vintage which I love. I have secretly wanted to go to an old-timey carnival but I don't think they exist anymore... sadness.. Ever watch the HBO series Carnivale?

I also heart the Bear themed tin. Fuzzy little guys, aren't they?!! One of my favorite animals too. Oh, and the heart necklace... Totally fun!  Grin

And the adorable beach tin.... I was really attracted to the multicolored fuzzy thing... was that a pouch? Whatever it was, I loved the colors... And the felt clam.... FREAKIN' cute.

I am really impressed with everyone's handiwork. Such a talented bevy of beauties you are...

I can't wait for Miss Monkeythumb to post...

now, I'm off to watch a little Captain Jack.... Grin

The mightiest and littlest of them all....


I'll swap with you if you wanna swap with me....

At long last, pictures of the amazing tin cheyelizabeth sent me.  Cheesy

She went with my cherry blossoms theme, and this is what I found when I opened my package

the outside of the tin, the woven ribbon is so cool!

the inside, with a mirror on top and elastic lace in the bottom to keep things in place

all the innards, a needle felted cherry blossom pin, stitchmarkers, stickers , and the leftover ribbon

and I must say, my favorite part, the knit pouch with embroidery on it, and my two cherry blossom pens (which I have to keep close watch over, to prevent my cat from eating it all  Wink)

Thanks so much cheyelizabeth! I love it!

I also had Cherry Blossoms as one of my themes.  Here's my fantastic tin from NewYorkDoll!

I was so excited to get one done with clay!  It's beautiful!

And look at all the goodies!  I can't wait to wear the necklace and earrings.  I'm going to plan my outfit for work tomorrow around them Smiley   Thanks NewYorkDoll!!!

And since I know NewYorkDoll got the tin I sent her, here's one of the photos I took of that~

You beat me to posting pics! I'm so glad you like your tin. I'm going to post pics of my modeling my GORGEOUS moonstone bracelet very soon. (Been working on grad school applications lately, theyre killing me...)  Grin

Okay I know my partner has her tin and I'm far too excited to wait to post pics so here's what I sent! Yippie!

I went with MoreLove's theme "Magic"

It's the "Cut a Lady in Half" trick!

The inside...

The loot (trick dice, mini polymer hat, wand and rabbit, a charm bracelet and magic word magnets)...

What fun!
