Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope each day is filled with great delight and spiritual significance in this season of new birth. We have much to celebrate, reviving new hope and new paths before us in the coming year. May all your desires, promises, and expectations be fruitful, coming to pass as we live each day with the blessings of Heaven. Lovingly thankful, Annie
I guess because I have so many Altoid tins that I’ve collected over the years, I figured I’d do something with them again. Last year I used the bottom of the tins turning them into ornaments, that became my most pinned pin on Pinterest! Those ornaments are still my #1…but I still had all the lids to turn into projects and decided to make a few more.
Last year’s review: 2013 Altered Altoid tins.
Here is my new 2014 line-up of tins:
These are much more colorful and detailed (just goes to prove with practice you can improve).
Be sure to visit and have a little reading for this long weekend.
This summer I am setting aside the entire months of June and July to finish projects and start some new ones. First thing is the redecorating/remodel of our kitchen. It is so dated and needs an uplift. I was totally inspired when I went to IKEA last week and came up with this general concept…all things I can do (with a little help of course). I love the farmhouse sink, counter tops, shelving, drawer pulls – all from IKEA.
Of course there are all kinds of projects you can begin with the simplest purchased items from IKEA, I think I may try some of these myself. Here are a few below: click on the pictures to get a full view.

When I stumble across this birthday crown on Pinterest, I fell in love with it. Linda Albrecht of Maya Road makes these and it is featured on her site. Since both of my granddaughters have birthdays in May, I thought it would be a perfect surprise on their special day (making them myself of course). They could keep them as treasures for years to come and remember their Nannie.
