Well, it IS Monday morning, here in Michigan anyway. I said on Saturday that I will have another post on Monday, so here it is.
We had a great weekend - Saturday was my hubby's birthday so we went out to breakfast, met friends there ... went out to lunch with other friends, and out to supper with family. Didn't eat as much as we talked, thank goodness! Sunday was church then potluck picnic! Always, always fun and loaded with yummy food. Got home from that and needed a nap, or at least a rest-time. And now another week begins, filled with appointments, fun times, a little work around the house and who knows what else.
Since we had ABC (Anything But a Card) as our VC Blog Hop theme over the weekend, I have a couple other ideas to share, so here is today's ....
I just love, love, love to alter tins (like from Altoids, but you can buy them to alter) ... the options available are as big as your imagination - you should see what kids come up with! Here are just a few I have made that I found sitting on my shelf. I made a new one for a swap but it has not been delivered yet so I will wait on it until everyone has seen their box of ideas - Gifts for a Dollar was that theme. These tins are yet another super way to use up bits of designer paper and odds and ends of embellishments .... 'cause, anything goes with these!!!
Here are two up-close so you can see some details. No big deal, really, but I know it's hard to see in the other pix. Depending on the tin, I sometimes add grosgrain ribbon around the outside edge on the lid - it's just the right size width!! - but depending on the color of the tin, you may want to love it as it is.
Oh yeah, I don't know if I have mentioned it before (or if you even believe it), but I am not a hoarder, just a pack rat with loads of items just waiting to be used and altered and such.
Hope you enjoy this idea - try it and I really would love to see what you come up with. Like I said, I will have a post later with my swap samples and then all the samples I receive - I did two sets, so should have 10 additional "Gifts for a Dollar" to show you!
Have a great day and may God Bless You and Yours! Hugs, Shirley
