Mini Suitcases

I made and listed three new suitcases for my etsy shop today. The child's suitcase on the left was packed with everything a little boy needs for a trip to Grandma's.
These little cases are so easy to make from little mint tins. I discovered today that real wallpaper samples work quite well to line the insides and I don't have to worry about glue showing through. I also have a large selection of samples from which to choose.
We've had a rough start to the school year. My son had been coughing and not feeling well so I took him to the doctor thinking it would be bronchitis or a cold. However, the doctor suspects pertussis (whooping cough). The results from the test take a minimum of 4 days and he can't be at school until the test confirms that he doesn't have it. It's highly contagious. If the test comes back positive he'll be home for awhile. I don't know what that means for the daughter who's moving to college on Sunday. At least she's had a recent booster shot for pertussis.
