Alrighty all. I made this altered tin for the fantastic loves2experiment in the Wicked Vices Altered Tin Swap. One of her vices was procrastination, and i can totally relate to that.

Loves2experiment put into words what i was trying to express:
I love the nonchalant and calm demeanor on the cover...even as deadlines are looming Tongue

The top is made from polymerclay and painted with acrylic paint.



Inside are two little items.

A tiny canvas with the quote "The sooner i fall behind, the more time i have to catch up." All around the edge.

And a little pollyclay bird. "The little black bird is what I imagine procrastination as...a black bird that flys around my head making me lose my motivation"

It's even better in real life...and it's mine Grin  Thanks so much audio!  I'm glad to have this as a reminder about my tendency to procrastinate Smiley

loves to experiment...not a monogamous crafter...
