That is so neat-o!!  But now I have the "is my stuff good enough?" stress!!!   Cheesy    AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!  Great work on the tin and shrine!

You have no idea how easy it is to make me happy. I am putting the finishing touches on your stuff, and I hope it's good enough too!!! Do not worry!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Lookie what I got from suereal!

An "emergency cosmo" kit (perfect for those times when you just must mix a cosmo, but you're not at home  Cheesy) and a very awesome vintage look truck:


The headlights are painted with glow in the dark paint, so they actually glow at night!

Check out the little driver. I love this little guy so much. suereal carved his head out of a bead:


Why do you think that pumpkin looks so frightened? Could it be the fact that he's figured out he's riding in the....

Punkinater!!!

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Cracks me up every time.

Thanks so much suereal! Your package is taped up and ready to go and will be in the mail tomorrow.  Smiley

That is a really original idea.  The antiquing on that vehicle is great (or was it already like that?)  The license plate reminds me of that movie...  uh...  Jeepers Creepers where the creeper's license plate reads "BEATNGU".  They thought "beating you" at first, but really it's "be eating you".

Oh look!  A gallery!  Some times I forget that part happens in swaps  *blush*.

And oh goodness!  I recognize that!  I'm so glad you like it all rackycoo.  He was fun to make.  The truck started out as a dollar store kit.  (It's amazing what you can get for a buck some times!).  I was at my folks, so I just added a coat of paint everytime I needed to be crafty (which might have been 2 or 3 times a day some days).  And then I just beat on it with a hammer till it looked like my Popop's truck.  It's a good thing it wasn't a balsa wood kit....

I do have another small thing I will be mailing out soon.  It's what I wanted to do originally, but I forgot what I needed to take when I went to my folks.  I just wanted to take advantage of mailing in the States when I could, so that is why it's in two fazes Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I love the altered tin and the shrine that cackle made!  That one punkine on the bottom of the shelves gives me the shivers!  I can't tell if he is in pain, or scared, or what exactly....
