cackle, Killam Creative, MissingWillow and I had a Craftster meetup last weekend! Of course, we had to do a little swap. We each thought of a theme, and then crafted small tins or ATCs for each other. Here's what I brought for everyone: tiny altered tins.

For Killam Creative, butterflies:


For cackle, mermaids:


And for MissingWillow, zombie sheep  Cheesy:


My theme was Children's Beauty pageants.  Roll Eyes

 It was so fun to all meet up and share our art! Here's a group shot of all the tins together:


I hope everyone else will post what they made so you can see them all up close. To read more about our weekend, visit the Craftster blog!

How fun to get together and have a project day!  Your tiny tins are nicely done to the theme...although I am a bit disturbed by the zombie sheep... Cheesy

I also hope that the other partners in crafting will post the ones they made!

What are the little stands?

Hey... as a shepherd and lover of zombies, I've had zombie sheep on my crafted wish list for quite some time.  I told these ladies if they'd step up to my bizarro theme they'd make me very happy, and they did!

That zombie sheep theme was MissingWillow's idea, not mine!  Roll Eyes


What are the little stands?

Those are little wooden candle cups. I got them from Michaels and painted them to match.
