I am the lucky recipient of the first received altoid  tin!  Becki (Daydreamer) painted it green, decopauged greenery on the front and added gold trim.  The inside has more greenery goodness and is stuff with beads, ribbon, and little paper goodies. Thank-you so much for the green drop beads!  I can never have enough drops!!

I'll post pics soon!  Thanks so much!!

Sandy

I got mine from Hawaiilove ALREADY! 

She just mailed Saturday...and it's here in Ohio already!! WOOHOO!  She took a rectangular Altoid tin & painted it a beautiful metallic turquoise/teal... the top is covered in shell sand...THEN a layer of colorful, intricate shells... LOTS of them!  ;-)  The inside is painted swirly blue... like the ocean!  It's so neat!  I hope my pictures do it even half justice...cause it's really pretty & reminds me of my vacations...   A mini vacation for my desk Cheesy  Thank you so much Hawaiilove...

Yay!!! I'm glad you got it and like it. It was fun to make. I tried my best at swirls since you said you liked them. You are too cute with your little webpage. I'm in no rush to get mine (although I'm excited) so don't feel rushed.

Oh yea.. I LOVE it!!  Are those shells from one of your islands (I make it sound like you own them, lol) or did you get them from somewhere else?  They are awful lovely... Cheesy  And yes, I love swirlies!  Well, gee, if it gets shipped through as fast as yours did to me, you should have it in no time.  I am off work Friday... so I am pretty sure it's going to get shipped that day Cheesy
