I love thinking about crafting at work  Grin 

Hehe, me too.  I love my job, but some days I just need more!  :-)  I spent today plotting what crafty goods I could pick up on my way home for a different swap.

It's so well done - it really looks like the tin came decorated like that - not an imperfect cut or an errant drop of glue anywhere - I was amazed! 
Thank you Racky!!!
I can totally relate to that remark.  I got one from Racky long ago and it is PERFECT.  Which is exactly why I was interested in the swap.  She didn't say how HARD it is to cover this things, lol.

My partner Penlowe didn't have a bit of trouble covering this one!  She so tailored it to me.  Love pigs and she did many 'plays' on my name, Tee.  I requested this size tin from her because I want to use it as a cigarette case.  They fit PERFECT!
Front:

Back:


She crammed it sooo full of stuff that I had all kinds of things in the bottom of the envelope.  Sorry for not scanning it.  I've already hordered it into my stash.
She sent mega backgrounds to be used for future ATCs, stickers, shrinky dink pieces, stamped images and bill of ladings.  Totally neat!

Thanks so much Penlowe!!  I hope you like the theme I chose for you too.

Penlowe, that is the perfect tin for Tee!

hannabear, what a cute idea for decorating the tin! It looks fantastic. I'm jealous of some of that ephemera, too.

And alteredmommy, your little "nest" nest is too clever. I love your little bird (no surprise, as I'm on a bit of a bird kick now.  Cheesy)

Happy Sendout Day, everyone! If I haven't heard from you regarding sending, make sure you PM me today.  Smiley

Whew! I just gave up on Crafster photo-hosting for now and returned to good ol' photobucket!
I have some clearer pictures of the beautiful bird-themed tin I recieved from alteredmommy

What treasures will be inside?


Goodness it's full to bursting!


Behold the amazing contents! Everything is tiny and interesting. I have been repeatedly  opening it and carefully taking everything out, each time finding something new I didn't see the first time!


I have more detailed pictures of the contents if anyone is interested!
Thanks for such a fun swap alteredmommy! I hope you like what I made you. ( I wish they had a smiley face for anxiety. Maybe a little sweat beading on their foreheads or something)
P.S. Where did you get those tiny tags? I would love some more, they really got me inspired.

Way better pics k-roc Smiley  I broke my good camera on vacation and had to use the one with no macro which is pretty useless.  The little tags are from the stationary store.  I'm hoping that my mail brings me your tin today, can't wait to see it!!

I accidentally threw out the receipt so that I could obsessively track its progress. It was express so it should come today or tomorrow I'm guessing! I'll have to stalk every paper-craft store to find more of those tiny tags!

I got my tin from trititia today. Look how cute: she embroidered the top, and the rest is fabric!


Here's a picture of the insides, with all the fantastic goodies:


There are stamps, tickets, meshy screens, fun images, photos, tags...it's a great sampling! Thanks so much, tristitia. I'm getting ready to do a page for my tip in swap, and I may see if I can use mostly things from this tin.  Smiley
