The inspiration for this box came from a calendar I've been hanging onto for years. The theme is vintage travel, and it was the perfect way to pass a dreary November afternoon.

Every January, I find myself getting rid of the old to make room for the new, which was the inspiration for this box. I recently ran across an old calendar of World War II aircraft - specifically, nose art.

This box came from a 2009 calendar that hung in my office . . . until 2011. In some ways, it's surprising that I still have a job. I call it my June Cleaver box.

The idea for this box came from a calendar of vintage posters I bought in 2005. I'd held onto it for years because I liked the pictures. I knew I would eventually use them, I just didn't know how. For alternate views, click the links below.

This box, too, was made by request. It is identical to the preceding box with one exception. The person ordering it asked that the top and bottom pictures be reversed.

After my first pin-up box, I learned a lot - mainly that corners have a tendency to fray. With that in mind, I took a more methodical approach, creating a template by which to organize my photos. The end result was much improved. For alternate views, click the links below.

The pics for this box (my first attempt at decoupage) were taken from a book titled Gil Elvgren. Because the paper is heavier than that from a magazine or newspaper, it was a great medium to work with. Click the links below for alternate views.
