The awesomeness of Altoids

And a touch more art.

So. I was at the end of my little tin of Altoids and I noticed something. Something that really tickled my sense of wonder. (My sense of wonder is pretty easily aroused.)

       The little paper inside the tin had writing on it. Not the obvious stuff on top but on the bottom.
And it made no sense.
But then I got clever and folded it in half. And held it up to the light. Oo-De-Lally!
I found a secret message in the bottom of a little tin of mints one of the most delightful things I've ever come across  It seriously made my day. As I say before, my sense of wonder is easily aroused.


I've been in a very artsy mood lately. I doubt this drawing streak will last-it never does. But I am heartily enjoying myself, playing with pencils and doodling on any paper that happens to be on hand. It wont last, I promise you, and you'll not have to scroll through my doodles every time you pop on.

I've been practicing different angles. *Pats self on back.*

This one I like. He's sort of Sherlock-ish. And that makes me happy.

Tra-la. Well. There you have it. 

God Bless.


  1. your drawings are lovely. And the secret note is so cool :) Who though of THAT little gadget? It's almost like you were a spy on the receiving end of an amazing break-through :) Such a fun post

  2. I saw secret note, and read about the part where you were so clever and folded the paper in half, and thought, "Oh, you mean on that dotted line, where it says 'fold here'? That line?"

    But that is pretty cool. Clever, clever altoids! Leaving secret messages all over the place.

  3. *Ssssssh!* You musnt tell the Secret! Lol. Too late now, I guess.
