Trinket Box


Here is a cigar box that I started to refinish last year, but then stuffed into my closet because it wasn't cooperating with me. However, my friend and award winning photographer, Angela Rocco has requested that I make her a keepsake box for her vintage pins.



I would also like to add that Angela is a local celebrity and plays the Nosferatu-like creature on The It's Alive Show. Here is a picture of her in costume as Hellga!


Hellga is the most adorable role. She doesn't speak and communicates via charades!
Angela is funny and sweet and talented and I am happy to be designing her keepsake box. Mortifyingly enough, she is leaving the design entirely up to me! She won't even give me a clue! So stay tuned and we'll see what I come up with.

I think I would enjoy watching "Helga". Your friend is beautiful btw and I am sure she will be pleased with whatever you come up with as you are extremely talented yourself!

What a great friend....I bet you and she have some great chats! What approach are you considering? You are so artistic, I know that it will be amazing, where is she going to keep this box...that will help with inspiration.

I adore Hellga; Angela looks great too. ;)

I have every confidence in your ability to create something PERFECT, Julie. You really can't fool me about your ability. I've been to your etsy shop and seen your work.....

Can't wait to see the finished box. Don't forget Angela's other character on the show "Granny Square" and her purse meat.
