Have I Shown You This Yet????

As all who have been following my blog know I am crazy about the altered tins! Absolutely, LOVE them! I think that they make a GREAT gift! I had been following a blog for a while now called A Swap For All Seasons. I enjoy seeing the multi-media art that the ladies and also the owner Linda makes. Just beautiful stuff!

Last season Linda had a altered Altoids tin swap. Seeing as how I love working these, I entered it! At the end of the season I sent my tin off to its new owner Becky. Here is a link to Becky's blog:

Becky made me this BEAUTIFUL tin! I think that it is absolutely darling! The little bird on it made me smile! It still does!

The nest that was inside of it made my day! When I need a pick-me-up I always pick this tin up and look at it again!
Becky also sent me some fodder for my CQ! These treasures have been assimilated into my stash for "Catch My Star". I am hoping to get started on "Catch My Star" here in the next year! First, I have to finish "Seanes" .

Theresa, a 19yo who goes to the N' Stitches meetings has me hooked on the multi-media art! Well.........her and Linda. Thanks Linda for letting me "play" on your blog!
I have entered into the Linda's Altered Cabinet Card Swap! I am very excited about it! I have found the card that I am going to use and inspiration is starting to hit!
For those who want to check out A Swap For All Seasons here is her link:
Off to stitch.......................
