I am sorry I am so quiet. The weather has been gray here for most of the last three weeks. It is getting to me. I bet you can tell in my videos how gloomy it is outside. Although…when I shot this video it was sunny.

After Thanksgiving I started with a stiff neck. That got REALLY bad last weekend. It felt like I got a nasty cramp in my neck everytime I moved. So not fun. Now the pain is back to just being a stiff neck. I am getting old! Although I just blame it all on cold weather. LOL

Yesterday’s tutorial on SCS was written by Sharon Johnson. She created a beautiful Altered Tin. The one I created for the video tutorial is a bit on the funky side. Rebecca helped me with the label and decoration. It will be on her desk holding her pens and other “supplies”.


What can I say? She likes pens, pencils and markers at least as much as her Mom does. 🙂 The paper used for the can is from My Mind’s Eye Pretty Please kit. We added some Prima Daisy Doodles and Kaiser Rhinestones to finish off the can.

Here is a video for the visual learner (please excuse the loud amulance at the end of the video. I live very close to the hospital on base and I didn’t have another can to alter):

  1. Thanks so much for the video – and I do hope you feel better soon. Stiff necks can be so uncomfortable. Have a great day!

  2. I think this is so sweet. My daughter loves all the same things. We have to add paper to the list though. I love the little punched border at the bottom.

    I think that this is the glumiest summer/fall/winter that we have had since I moved here. I’m sure it stinks to be away from the sunshine. I hope the sun shines for you soon!

  3. LOVE this! You girls did a FAB job! I totally want to make one of these for my stamp desk! The paper and embellies are GORGEOUS!! Hope you feel better soon!!!

  4. Welcome to Midwest Winters.
    Its not much fun, really. And the gray seems endless…

    Adorable project!

  5. I hope your getting better soon. Your tin is wonderful. You inspired me to do one for myself. It will be christmassy. 🙂

  6. Love your tin.. how fun to ‘work’ with Rebecca on a project. 🙂

    And the stiff neck, etc., really could be from the weather if it is damp.. arthritis and just a general achiness. I was born and raised in a desert. When we first moved to Seattle I experienced the same sort of thing. Now I’ve grown after years and years of it to actually love the rain. It started when I discovered I LOVE to run in it! (hence, “rainy”) lol Sure hope you are feeling better soon, Beate.

  7. cool idea! hope you feel better! when the weather gets to you just remember how miserably hot and sticky fl is!ugh!

  8. Fabulous, Beate! I totally understand your mood, with the weather that way, it’s understandable! It’s been cold, dark and yucky here too 🙁

  9. This is such a fun altered tin and I love that your daughter helped you create it! The paper, flowers and gems are all so pretty!
    Hope your neck starts to feel better soon Beate! Your not old your right around my age and I refuse to get old, lol.

  10. Love the altered can. I’ve decorated a few and have used them daily for the past two years. I love them! Your daughter will too. I love listening to your videos and hearing your beautiful voice!

  11. Oh so fun, Beate!! I just love the bold bright colors of this cheery tin!!

  12. Nice tin. I like flowered paper, and it is really fresh looking. I could do with making a few , cause I keep loosing them on my tiny desk. Hope your neck feels better, the cold stiffens me up too.

  13. Oops, I keep loosing my pens, that is….

  14. Beate, I hope you are feeling much better very soon.

  15. You…Old….{{Spew….}} Don’t think so!! Hope your feeling better soon. If it helps, it hasn’t been very pretty here in NW Florida either!!
    Love your little altered tin! So bright and fun!

  16. Your can is so pretty, Beate, and Rebecca made a great label!!

    Gosh…I know how you feel with the cold/gray days. A vacation some place warm will do the trick. 😉
