Details, details, details...
 
 You will be given five theme ideas from your partner. You will choose one of those ideas, and re-con an Altoid tin according to the theme. (If you are unable to find an actual Altoid tin, you may use a substitute, provided you keep the size to anything smaller than 4" x 4" (10 cm x 10 cm), and not thicker than 1" (3 cm).) The tins can be square, rectangular, or circular. After the tin is decorated, you will fill the tin with tiny objects that also relate to the theme.

For example, if your partner chose "red" as a theme, you would decorate the box to reflect "red". It could just be different shades of red, or perhaps pictures of red items (roses, cherries, or firetrucks, etc.). Then, you decorate the interior of the box and fill it with red things...maybe a pair of red earrings, a red purse charm, some red hots...whatever "red" means to you. The catch is that you can only send the decorated tin and whatever fits into it.  Nothing else! This will be a quick, fun swap and shipping should be fairly cheap, as well.

I kind of want to sign up for this swap but the last round that I participated in was a bit difficult.  I went through 3 tins before I got it right and I suffered from a hot glue gun injury.   It was not pretty!!

Any ideas on creative tin packing? It doesn't all fit! lol I might have gone a bit overboard.

All I can say right now is, I hope my tin doesn't SUCK as much as I think it does!!!

This is my first time working with coloured poly clay, and it's my first time covering a tin. Sigh! Harder than it looks!

I've got the stuff done for inside the tin, but I'm still at a little bit of a loss for the outside.  I've got some ideas, just doubts about execution of them.

Is it necessary to make the items to go inside the tin yourself, or can it be store bought stuff also?

I have my partner's tin almost done and one thing to go inside it done. I have all the other things planned out and now just have to make them. :)

I finally got to start on my tin last night during my heroes marathon. My problem is that I have too many ideas so I'm trying to narrow it all down. But what I've done so far is looking good :)

I received from echo_brook! She should not have had swap anxiety. She did a great job on everything. Do we have a gallery yet? If so, I'm a complete dork and can't find it. ;D


*waves* Complete dork here, missed the link at the end of the first post from Holliwood. Ok. Completely Embarrassed now.  ::)

Oh, I'm so excited!

And just so everyone knows, woobie is a great (and understanding!) partner. I accidentally melted everything on her tin in the oven this morning during the finishing touches stage of my tin crafting so I will unfortunately be sending late. It was a moron move on my part but she's been so nice and understanding, thank you!

Ugh, my boyfriend knocked mine on the floor the other day while glue was drying so I'd already saved it once but the oven was too much for it. I hope you can fix yours in time.

I'd like some more time to, I'm nearly finished with it but I still feel something is missing. I really want to look for some extra items to fill the tin.

Sounds like moving send outs back to Monday would be okay for everyone. So consider it done!  ;D

Thanks for the reprieve, Governor!

I switched tins, after I had finished the first, and got up at 7 this morning to finish the second one. I was afraid that if I sent it today, it would stick to the envelope.  So thanks for the extra drying time. Whoo!

Hello all,
  I just got home from my trip to the Gulf coast. I have to say I am about to drop dead. I had to help family secure after we went through all Dad's stuff and got it loaded in the uhauls...

I am so sleepy I had left New Orleans for Biloxi to help more of my family secure for the hurricane and now have not only my stuff in my uhaul but a ton of family items to be saved ( we dont trust the Army Corp to have fixed the leaves) I am so freaked out it is now a cat 4....OMG I think this will do more damage then Katrina as it is so F up still and noting is stable. I pray that my family will all be OK...I dont know mentally how much more an area can stand...

I left for my only 11 hour trip home but I left with the start of the Hurricane evac groups and SHIT it took 21 hours to get home and I did not stop to eat just snacks when I got gas...

I fear this will be the straw that breaks the Gulf Coast back


I am standing buy waiting to drive back down with gas, and supplies to help in the months of clean up that will follow....Most of my peeps lost almost everything in Katrina and most of the homes too...GAH Pray it goes somewhere else like a non populated area....
OH ALL we in teh USA cant ship MONDAY it is a FEDERAL holiday...So it will be Tuesday for the ones who have not shipped yet!

I completely finished my tin and everything in it yesterday. This morning I started packing it up and realized that 2 of my favorite things I made don't fit. I'm so bummed! I quickly made 2 similar items that aren't as thick but I'm still sad, I'm so proud of the originals :( I AM happy to send it out tomorrow though, I can't wait until my partner gets it!

I think I might wanna go pick up something extra today. My original tin idea is a wee too bulky, but one popped in my head last night.

:) we shall see.



Also, POOR LYRICALSTAR!: I hadnt paid attention to the DC number, and while I was starting to get a wee worried it hadnt showed yet, I just started this new job and it's kept me pretty busy. DC said it arrived on the 25th, but theres been no note or package for me :( *sniffle*
