Art Altered is a fabulous shop that's owned by Sam, and located in Albuquerque, New Mexico!
This is what Sam has to say about Art Altered...
Yes, everything you buy from me is handmade by me! No outsourcing to a factory here... Use your logo, photos or artwork for unique and economical custom promotional materials. Perfect for save the date, business give aways, family reunions, party, wedding or shower favors and gifts. Art Altered Buttons, Badges, Magnets, Pins, Pinbacks, Hand or Pocket Mirrors, Coasters, Flat Backs, Ponytail Holders, Bottle openers. Custom, wholesale, bulk.
I've picked just a couple pictures out of the many listings that I love. Day Of The Dead masks are always a favorite with me.
Love these coasters with outdoor critters on them....simply beautiful.
And of course, I have a little "dark" side that loves "Goth Horror Macabre" stuff, as Sam refers to it. Makes me think of Halloween and that's one of my favorite holidays!
But then there's the side of me that's obsessed with anything Alice In Wonderland...how cute are these?
There are so many cool and unique items available at Art Altered. You must stop by the shop and take a peek for yourself.
You'll find them listed on Etsy and also Store Envy:
And, don't forget to follow them on Facebook too!
You'll also find Art Altered in our February Valentines Sampler boxes at Out Of The Box Sampler...and March too!
Be sure to stop by and tell them OOTBS sent you!

Today begins our Spotlight Series on some of the Out Of The Box Sampler Contributors. We'll be spotlighting over 16 "handmade" companies that have signed up to join us for the January, February and March 2014 samplers!
So let's start off with "Home And Family!"
Home and Family is a business run by Sarah Rhodes in Michigan.
Sarah is a mom who "loves to indulge her sweet tooth." She's been cooking up gourmet lollipops and rock candle for over four years now.
There are several different shapes for her lollipops and so many flavors. Here's a few of my favorites:
There are a whopping 65 flavors total!
Not only will you find those goodies, you can also be treated to Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels, Caramel Crunch Popcorn, and Cinnamon Toasted Almonds!
Just recently, Sarah has added lip balms and candles to the mix as well.
A little something for everyone!
You'll find Home And Family in the Out Of The Box Samplers for the next two months too. So head over to her shop and check out all the goodies available. Be sure to tell her OOTBS sent you!
