It makes me happy to create little boxes--little containers to hold small treasures!! I especially like creating them utilizing nature's colors and found objects.

I painted this particular box deep turquoise, the beautiful color of the sea near my house. I have collaged marbled papers and little coquina shells to the sides of the box and glued little wooden ball feet to the bottom and one to the lid. I then painted those a metallic blue. I finished the box by embellishing it with yummy fibers to which I've attached pretty beads, and a very special bead--a gorgeous piece of abalone. The box measures just about 4" tall and is 3" square.

Finally, I have tucked special wishes inside the box that whoever receives it has a happy day and feels the love in its creation. Thank you!!
