My partner for this swap is the wonderful meowari.  We were both in the Themed Altoid Tin Revamp/Fill Swap, and I got obsessed with an awesome revamp and mini journal she did (as a swap angel, no less!).  So I chased her down and begged her, and the awesome gal agreed to do another round of tin revamping/filling with me!

I sent yesterday, and - now, let's give props to the USPS when they're good - the package arrived today!  (Okay, so we live like an hour from each other, but still, I'm impressed!).  Here is the tin:



meowari gave me five themes to choose from, and I selected "cats."  I wanted to do it in a hip and non-cutesy way, though, so I did some craftster-stalking.  I found a post on the tattoo thread where somebody showed their space cat tattoo, and meowari posted about how much she admired it.  So I casually stole it and recreated it in embroidery.  Then I glued it into the Altoid tin, glued more black felt on the edges, and stitched it up for a more finished look.



The inside of the tin is lined in white scrapbook paper with little multicolor pawprints.  Inside are four goodies:

- A set of wild cat fake tattoos in a little envelope
- A framed pic of her pretty cat lounging in a cat bed that meowari made (and posted in a former thread, so it was there for the stalking!).  It's got a magnet on the back.
- A pair of yellow cat buttons - I wasn't sure what to make of them, so I thought meowari could decide that one.
- An embroidered drawstring pouch.  The fabric reminded me of the space cat from the tattoo, and the pink "meow" ribbon was the perfect complement.



there we have it!!  I hope this all gave meowari a big smile and made it worth her while to join up in this swap.  can't wait to see which of my themes she picked and what cool goodies she sends my way!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

You guys are giving me my smile back after a sucky start to the day.   Undecided  (see, there's my smile starting to come back!)  Thanks a bunch.  I'm so glad you liked the tin.
