Lovin' it!  I especially admire the geisha tin/hair clip and the photography/biking tin.

It's now been 10 days since I sent, and the USPS has yet to deliver my stuff to goatgoddess.  *grumble, grumble*  Can't wait for it to finally pop through - I'm so eager to see what she thinks!  Is anyone else having USPS issues lately??  *sigh*  I hate waiting...

wow those are wonderful - Love the gold - very nice!

The pink one is just too cute - love the front of it.

And the Asian one is super cute with the packaging very creative.

Got to love a tin that uses 4 out of 5 themes - Stifflersmom that is wonderful use of color and design.

Thanks for posting - one of the best part of a swap is seeing all the wonderful things everyone does!

I'm looking forward to it <G>  It will get here one of these days - My package to Australia was sent 8 weeks ago and it still isn't there! You would think whoever updates that stuff would have a report that shows packages that haven't been updated for x amount of days so they could follow up on them. But oh yeah it's the gov.  Roll Eyes

*Note to everyone: seeds (small ones, anyway) and modge podge don't work as well together as you would think*


meowari, if you're wanting to "embed' glass seed beads (or holeless glass beads), and can bake what you're making (or at least that part of it), you might want to try using liquid clay to hold them on/in.  If you can't bake, another glue to try (still a white glue like Mod Podge, but stronger and made esp. for non-porous things) would be Beacon's Gem Tac, or Jewel-It.

There's more info on using seed beads and holeless beads on this page if you want to check it out:

(...click on Seed Beads,etc., then scroll down to the Glues section...)

I got my tin from stellato_escuro!!

She chose a variety of my themes.  The tin itself is GORGEOUS...covered in clay to make it a big, substantial trinket box with a cross and stars on it in beautiful colors!  Inside was a moon-bead, some hair ties with cute little charms on them, a "mom to be" pin, and a bunch of circular tags in my favorite shades of green and blue!!

I'll try to get pictures done before too long here, but if stellato_escuro has some available, she can post them if she wants to!

Thank you so much!!!  I love everything!

And I got my tin from Leylia, which was awesome! She chose a dragonfly theme, so I got a whole mess of cool stuff. I got a blue tin covered in rhinestones in the shape of a dragonfly. Inside, there were a bunch of little dragonfly patches, a pair of dragonfly earrings and a bunch of little baggies of rhinestones. Finally, there was a large dragonfly that can be a necklace, zipper pull, etc. I am going to hang it over my bed. Thanks again.

Oh, and Leylia; I am going to try to post pics, and if it doesn't turn out, I'll let you know. However, I don't have pictures of what I sent you. That and sending a note with the package I can never seem to remember.

Wow!

everyone has done such a good job on their's I hope my partner likes hers (which she should have received by now but hasn't)

I really like the pink and brown tin, and the gold and flower tin- you two partners must have been on such a similar wavelength Smiley

The pink and Asia tin are sweet and so well put together. Stifflersmom, the bicycle bracelet turned out really well with the black-red combo.

well done girls!

It's here It's here!!!

I was doing my little happy dance back from the mailbox and our goats were lined up at fence looking at me and yelling
"come on - come on - it's time to eat"   I danced on by and told them no, it's still early and I've got to post some pic's first <lol> 

Wow thank you so much Writer78 - it's perfect!!!

She picked the Cowgirl theme for me - on the outside of tin wanted posters of some fab gals -  love the finish and the trim. Did I tell ya it's perfect <g>



Now for the inside - a little envie full of cool western stickers - Very cool magnets of a cowgirl hat, boots and a shield saying cowgirl. Then there is a black pouch with a little silver horse - in the pouch was two pairs a the most cool earrings, brown buttons with a rust finish, the other pair are silver boots - very cool!


thank you so much Writer78 <g>
