I’ve had some plain wooden boxes sitting around Jasper’s room and have been anxious to get some paint on them. I mean, I should be fine with something plain, for once, but they were begging for color and a purpose. I finally figured out what to do with them–keepsake travel boxes! After each trip, I would fill a box with all the souvenirs, mementos, and photos that I collected. It serves as a physical reminder of all the fun and keeps me from misplacing all the special items gathered from the trip (unfortunately, a common problem in my life). Each wooden box is painted in a pattern and color scheme inspired by the destination. For example, the Mexico box is painted with a bright color block pattern. Then I can place all of my trinkets inside: polaroids, plane tickets, brochures, flight wings, coins, books, etc.
