    My tins went postal on Saturday and should arrive tomorrow or Wednesday. Here are the first 2 of my tins.

    The library one is my favorite.

    The cosmic fairy tin has glow in the dark paint on the gate and a bit inside. I was so excited to use the mirror tiles. I bought them years ago (I don't remember why) and they've been sitting in a tub with other random stuff.

    Here is my 3rd tin. I went with 2:2 with an extra for the host. This one just didn't turn out like I envisioned it. But I like the actual inside part - with the fairy and cupcakes. The gifts inside the lid and the streamers are disappointing to me. They did not cooperate like I thought they should. You know how sometimes reality doesn't match up with the big ideas in our heads!

    Anyway - I really enjoyed this swap although it was a huge challenge for me. I need to do some more practice on 3D projects.

    Melissa, they are all wonderful! Each one has something unique incorporated into the design - glow-in-the-dark paint, little mirror tiles, tiny books, and cupcakes! Very creative! I do love that library one, and I believe that is a cameo on the inside lid. Did you look at my profile page? Hmmm....wonder which one I will choose....

    I just had a reluctant withdrawal via PM due to illness. I think everyone else is on target as far as I know. Postal holidays always slow things down.

    I didn't! But if I had, I would have sent you some extras. That's another thing that I bought a bag full of about 8 years ago -pink and black background cameos. I don't know why I bought them.

    We are nearing swap time, and I am so happy to hear that so many of you have really enjoyed this idea. So much so that Shannon (aka Miss Fame) suggested I host another Altoid tin swap. I really didn’t think I was ready so soon, but then she mentioned a Santa’s Workshop theme....and wow, all the ideas and images that pop into my head! In order for it to be timely, I would need to post in early October. Just wondering if there would be any interest. If you want to weigh in, it will definitely NOT be considered a commitment, it might just help me know what to do, thank-you!

    I wouldn’t be able to participate, just too much going on, but it sounds like great fun! Excited that our returns will be going out in a little while!!

    Well, I might have found some tiny little Santa’s workshop goodies at Hobby Lobby yesterday.

    Great, I was thinking little Christmas miniatures might not be out yet. I do think a Santa’s Workshop theme might be fun, and I know there were some who wanted to play in this one and couldn’t. So maybe....we’ll see.

    All little fairyland tins are in the mail on their way to new owners! All should arrive by this Thursday, 9/12. I hope everyone is happy with your returns, and don’t forget to leave rep points for your return partners. Remember, a Mail Art Swap usually involves a little more effort, supplies, and postage than regular ATC swaps, so your positive feedback is very appreciated.

    Of course you know I am completely into another swap. Starting in October would actually be perfect. The idea of Santa's workshop came from Hobby Lobby from their miniatures like what Haagmm also mentioned.

    I can't wait to receive my returns.
