a couple more...

One more craft project: the Tin o' Notes. You know how sometimes you need a small piece of paper, but can't find one? Or if you do, the post-it pads or whatever are all wrinkled from floating around at the bottom of your purse? Problem solved. This is an Altoids tin (one of many empty ones I've been collecting for ages, and never knew what to do with them) that I've covered with patterned paper, a punched flower, and some leaves. Again, the paper was covered with multiple coats of decoupage glue and spray sealer. (can't see it in this picture, but the sides of the tin were colored with gold leaf marker.) Inside the tin are 25 business-card pieces of lightweight white card stock (printed with lines), each stamped with a coordinating design. Cute, huh??? I think so, anyway! Also very cute is this picture of Sedona, taken by Tom over this past weekend. He was messing around with her while she relaxed on the couch... she certainly is tolerant! This is definitely the perfect "Smiling Sheltie" expression!! (I love how her ears tip over perfectly, too!)

thanks! I don't like throwing away Altoids tins; I'm glad I can finally use them for something!
