I just got back from a wonderful weekend with some of  the Craftster mods. We had so much fun! We went shopping for mixed media supplies at antique malls one day, and spent all the next day crafting! We may have slipped in a little time to share some Cosmos and wine as well.

One fun thing we did was a Yankee swap, where we each brought a little craft and swapped them out. Everyone was so happy with what they got that there was no stealing. Cheesy Here's what I made to give away: a small "Pocket Affirmation" tin. This is the size of one of the Altoids mini tins.


Here you can see there's some Dresden trim on the side:


I had this great image from an Alpha Stamps collage sheet, and felt that this gentleman would be the perfect guy to say everything one would need to hear.


The pocket envelope on the left holds a card that has different sayings on it, so you can make him say whatever you need to hear. There are two balloons on the other side of the card as well. One says, "You're right, as always." I left the other one blank so that the recipient could write in whatever she personally needs to hear most.


HSG ended up with this tin. I hope this pocket affirmation tin always reminds her how awesome she is!

It was wonderful to see it in person!  The details on such a small piece were wonderful!  I think the person who got it hung on a bit too tight so I missed that it had the removable affirmations piece!  Wink

Beautiful work!

I'm the lucky person who got this tin. It is wonderful in all its elements, and so tiny. The guys expression cracks me up, and I've already changed the little affirmation a couple of times. The hubby just shakes his head when I giggle about it.  Smiley

How great to have a rackycoo original!  Smiley

I'm so glad you like it. Have you decided what the last affirmation will be, or is it a secret?

Got it narrowed down to two.
"Honey, why not go mosaic and I'll do the cleaning"

"I love it when you tell me what to do"

Decisions, decisions. Cheesy

I think a few of these might have to become part of my Random Acts of Art repertoire...can you imagine how great you would feel finding something so fun in some random place?

It was great seeing it in person...racky is very talented...but with a great sense of wicked humor!
