UPDATE: tins no longer carried by area stores--apparently the fad for them has died out as a craft item.

HOWEVER--found a great place online that sells them at a great price with no minimum order. :D So this is still on if you wanna.

Hm, I don't know. I"m very interested, but I just got news today, that my apartment complex wants me to pack up my whole collection and get it out of here, and then they want to "relocate" me wall they renovate the building, and then I may, or may not, be able to move back, into the place I have called home for that last 18 years . Plus, they may not even let me have my collection here, even if they do let me move back. so I have know idea where I'm going to be, or how long I'm going to be there, or what room I'm going to have for new stuff. (pretty much all my stuff is going into storage, or who konws how long.) And, knowing them, they will drag this out, for a very long time. :( So I am very interested, and since they don't take up much space, I may be in, but I kind lof have to see what they tell me at a meeting next week. :(

I don't think anyone has ever called me, or my life, "normal" before. :lol:

Oh, yeah, I have found some really great tins at thrift stores, over the years.

OMG, Jason. I hope this is a very temporary setback for you. I hope that whatever happens, it ends up in your favor.

On the matter of the tins--I know where to get them but I will have to order them. Also, timing isn't exactly good for me to do them right this minute. I have a child to see off on her student exchange trip and a household to change over to the school's out/summer vacation mode. So things are a touch on hold at Chez Taimdala at the moment.

Badger's projects have inspired me to attempt custom work but I must follow his excellent example: I must set the design and offer only a small number of variations. Otherwise, I'll be very overworked in short order in the studio, making infinite variations on a tiny run. (I say that like it's a bad thing, I know ...) To keep costs and production time down, I need to think on simplifying the process before I make it available to everyone.

I'm going to start an interest thread soon but I must also get the next patch design finalized before I start the tins, okay? The tins are a side project. The patches will be the main item for now. ;)

Not for a few weeks, AZ, but yes, I am working on another patch. ;)
