Happy Tuesday, family-friends!!!  I hope everyone is well and happily crafting!

Seems I just can't quite get back on track to a normal schedule these days; between my sister-cousin being home from the hospital and my aunt -- all the errands and running around is keeping me pretty busy.  Fortunately, I'm still getting in some crafting... YEA... it's just getting a project posted in a timely manner once it's complete!  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.  So with that said...

Today, I want to share an altered tin can project and some happy mail from a dear, sweet blogging friend.

Let's start with my altered project first though.  I found this old tin candy can and decided to alter it as opposed to throwing it away.  I painted the can then added lace and flowers, bling trim, and painted wooden balls for the feet.  The clock on the front of the box is a bottle cap which I inserted a clock face into then enclosed with resin and the word "Time" on the top are stick-on letters.  I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!  Here it is:

Most of you probably have at least one of these candy tins around, so why not make it pretty.  Here's another one I found which I'll be doing soon:

Now, for my happy mail -- and what a wonderful gift and surprise!  This came from a sweetheart, Barbara, over at Beebeebabs:

The adorable personalized canvas bag I used the very same day I received it... lol; the badge-button (also personalized) at the bottom of the picture came in the velvet bag and has a mirror on the reverse side instead of a pin or button (isn't this clever?!), and the card is a keeper!!!  Thank you so very much, Barbara, I love it all!!!

Well, I'm off again but, of course, I'll be back as soon as I can.

Love you all, and I'll be seeing you...
