Coquina Jewelry Box, Part 1

"The Box, before awesomeness"

Surprise! I am starting a very new project. I am making a jewelry box COVERED in Coquina Shells that I found while I was at the beach.

I am going to take you step by step through this project. What does this mean? I will update you periodically about how the project is going, what I am doing, and of course, pictures! It'll be like watching a baby grow up. :3

So, here are some pictures of the box. Enjoy!

The box full of stuff. The heart shape box is my old jewelry box that one of my sisters made for me. We aren't on good terms right now, so looking at the box kind of gives me pain. Plus, it's way too small for all my jewelry. That's why I am making this new one, because it will remind me of the place I love; the ocean!

I dumped everything out so you could see how deep the box is. It's pretty big! Can I fill it? DUH!

Normally I reply to comments through email, as you all know. But this is a reply I think everyone should see, so I don't have to explain this more than once.

I wish I could show her the box after I am done with it, Abby. I wish we could laugh about it. I really wish we can do this activity together. But I never see her. I haven't seen her since Christmas. She doesn't want to be around us. I really doubt that I'll ever see her again, unless she comes around during Christmas because she wants money... Then she'll just leave our memories the day after.

It's sad, but it's okay. I still have two other sisters who are the best sisters ever. If anything, they deserve to laugh and share this project with me more than she does. I'm greatful for what I have.
