A social network for people who love Etsy.com
So, I love to paint on trays and mainly on boxes.
Lucky me...I ordered some cigar boxes from evilmommy.etsy.com and she was so generous as to send me complimentary extras. Now, I'm surrounded as I wait for them to "speak" to me.
Did I need more boxes? Absolutely not! I've got small boxes, large boxes, tin boxes, papier mache, balsa wood boxes and now my current favorite...cigar boxes.
Did you know boxes tell stories? Or at least they do to me. Depending on what I paint on them, who they are intended for and what the end use will be. My Mom, who grew up during the depression, stored her treasures in small boxes. Whether it was her embroidery floss or her "jewelry" or letters; they all held a certain fascination to the small child at her knee.
So...oh wait, I think I hear one calling me......."roses" it says.."paint roses on me, scatter them at will"... and so I have a new "story" to begin on a certain little cigar box that is calling me........bye for now.
ps. Oh my, where are my manners? Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome. Pleased to meet you.
