Where do you get them? AND WHAT are altoids??? Because I have GOT to get me some of these tins!

Altoids are these very strong mints that are sold at drug stores, grocery stores, etc.. and they come in these tins.  The tins are either round or rectangular depending on the type of mint.  I think Altoids is a British brand but they have become very popular in the U.S.

Awesome art, mamakitty!

 FYI, everyone:  there's a cool book by Kathy Cano-Murillo (http://www.craftychica.homestead.com/intro.html lady) called _Making Shadow Boxes & Shrines_ (http://store.yahoo.com/patrickandkathymurillo/kathysbooks.html) and she has lots of cool ideas for making pocket shrines and bigger ones!  I  will post this under the books section as well!!

I was using an altoid tin to hold my oboe reeds, before someone got me a real reed holder.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

wow.. do you mind if i borrow your about me idea?  i want to do that but instead make it a "why I love you" type thing for my boyfriend for valentines and explain why i love him in each letter of the alphabet.  oh man.  i have to think about the x and z letters though.. those are always the tough ones.

ps. nice user name  Smiley
