Tom's Special Box

Kerry-Ann (my mail-art buddy) has a very special little boy, Tom, who was wondering why I kept sending stuff to her, and he was worried I'd forgotten about him- so of course I had to reassure him that he was unforgettable with a little customised art box. I painted the top with blackboard paint and lined the inside with felt, and included some goodies like pencils and chalk- plus Ben made a superduper mini blackboard duster especially to fit. It was so much fun to make, I hope he has as much fun using it!

He sure is having fun with it. When I showed him this post it reminded him, and we had to get it out IMMEDIATELY. So he's playing with it as I write this.
Thanks again.

You're so welcome!

Tom just discovered that if he licks the duster he can 'draw in my own spit' on the blackboard.
'Look, there are two different types of black'.
I'm both delighted and repulsed.
