Last year on July 19th I had some friends over for a day of altered art. This happened before I started my blog and I just realized today that I really wanted to post some pictures from that day. I was visiting my friend Chery Bass's blog-http://texasbass.blogspot.com/2009/07/red-letter-day.html when I realized that she had posted pictures of the tin that she made.
We started with altoid tins which we had each sanded and painted our color of choice. I provided lots of ocean and mermaid images along with mini sea shells, glitter etc. Each of my guests also brought some odds and ends which we shared. Cheryl brought me a hostess gift- a CD that she made of some of her favorite songs. We ate lunch while we created and listened to the music along with lots of talk and laughter.
I made some ocean cupcakes for dessert to go along with our theme.
