Treasure Boxes

January has been a rather unproductive month. We have had lots of snow, it has been cold, and I have just not been inspired. Today I painted a Treasure Box. The Treasure Box program is sponsored by the Society of Decorative Painters. Boxes like the ones that are used for storing photographs are painted with various designs suitable for children up to age 18. These boxes are then donated to the Shriners Hospitals for the children who are patients to have a place to store their personal "stuff" in their bedside tables. Ours will be sent to the Shriners Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania. It is a nice service project.
