Altered Altoid Tins

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- 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.

Captured Bird

Here is a picture of my captured bird. She sits in a sweet little nest of moss and flowers with a butterfly perched nearby. She wears a tiny party hat. I plan to put a flower or something on top of the container to dress it up. It will be listed on Etsy soon.
