i paint mini landscapes inside the lid of altoin tins, and use them for trinket/keepsake/jewelry boxes--i call this line 'MY HAPPY PLACE' and paint places i think i'd like to visit Smiley
comments and suggestions welcome--i'm learning to use a digital camera, and post photos here--so--hope all goes well! LOL!

Its ok. You know you can just use the 'modify' button on your posts to fix any spelling errors? - I should know, I make enought of them!

Also I thought you might be interested in this swap = Altoid and ephemera swap?
