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.


  1. Cara, This was one of the nicest times I've ever had--seriously. I know it's crazy because we all barely knew each other, but everyone was warm and friendly. It was so relaxing to be there to create with good people and learn something new! I can't wait for you to host another event (HINT HINT!) You are a wonderful hostess and amazing creator. Thanks so much for including me!
