I sell hand-painted wooden boxes on Etsy:
Finding peace, joy and bliss in a box
There was a moment in my life when I felt like there was something creative inside of me that couldn’t find its way out. One day, I picked up a plain, wooden box I’d found, and started painting it. I haven’t stopped since.
When I began painting my boxes, I thought I would do one or two for myself. Suddenly I realized I was hooked; painting gave me peace, and put me in a place of calm, which was something I needed as a break from the chaos of everyday life.
But I couldn’t leave them empty, so I decided to spread a little love, so to speak, by adding inspirational quotes I thought might help people, if only just a little bit.
Portions of the proceeds made in my shop go to my favorite charities: St. Jude Children’s Hospital, March of Dimes, and Cleaning for a Reason.
