I recieved my tin from SpunkyBubbles last night. Enclosed was a wonderful tin, card (thank you  Cheesy ) and a cute Pez Dispenser.  Since my husband is so into the scare-you-so-badly-you-want-to-piddle part of Halloween my theme was simply cutsie non-bloody Halloween.  I think my partner did a wonderful job.

The outside of the tin was painted and had this cute witch on top.  What's cool is the outlines are raised up and felted.  The pez dispenser is just priceless Smiley

The inside of the tin is my favorite!  The handdrawn "cute" witch is just adorable, i think she used paint on cardstock but I could be wrong...

Inside was a treasure trove of pez candy (Cherry is my favorite!), Candy Corn felt earings, a packet of 3 markers and 3 hard paper/carboard figures to color myself of a mummy, bat and frankenstein.  I think I am going to get some magnets and put these on my refrigerator.

Thank you again for a great swap Spunky Bubbles!

I received a great tin from irid3sc3nt yesterday!

She wanted the tin to look old and well worn, I think it turned out great, very antiquey.

The inside, very Martha-esque. I love Martha!

A cute bendy pumpkin man, buttons and beads, skelly relaxin and a pic I love in it's own little frame, it reminds me of The Killers song Bones.

A bunch of super cute stickers that remind me of Tokidoki.

Clay buttons and ribbon, buttons make me think NBC.

An embroidered sugar skull patch and gypsy/skull woman pendant. Which is funny because the next tattoo I'm getting is going to be an old school gypsy sugar skull lady.

Thank you so much irid3sc3nt I love it all!!!!

Check out my stuff from craftypuppymom!  Cheesy
She sent me a great tin that looks like a book and on the cover is a skull thats raised so it feels cool when you touch it.  Grin
I also got a knitted candy corn coaster that is awesome!
I love the little tombstones too, I seen those in the craft store and wanted to get some.
I also got a little skull notepad, glow in the dark skull confetti, halloween stickers, and a couple pieces of candy!
Thank you soooo much Heather, I really love what you sent me. The tin is so nice and it's my first altoid tin, it makes me want to start a little collection of altered altoid tins. I'm already using it to hold some halloween beads i've been making out of clay. Cheesy

I'm glad you liked it, QueenNinjaMonkey!  It was difficult to fit everything inside and get it closed, so I had to add the tie around it at the last minute.  Oh, the inside of the tin is actually a design by Scott Smith from Rucus Studio for Bethany Lowe.  Here's the link.

I received from QueenNinjaMonkey!  It took me a little bit to get the pictures organized.

Here is the actual tin.  It has legs!  It reminds me of a hearse, in a way..um  dunno why.  Probably the little bobbles.  Check out the awesome interior!  I love the little design!

Here's what came inside the tin: a haunted house ribbon necklace with substantial red beads, vintage-esque black cat earrings (which I wore to work that night), a teeny tiny fly charm that is perfect because it reminds me of a song on my halloween mix music called "Human Fly" by Nouvelle Vague, a wicked green witch charm, a plastic yellow bat ring (i'm a fan of tiny plastic things) and some toblerone (how did you know???), a pile of bones n skulls, some supercute stickers that look like buttons, paper animals/monster/arm, and some rad halloween-themed bandages.

Thank you, QueenNinjaMonkey, you must have picked my brain while I slept or something. Cheesy
