What was your inspiration?
My nephew is turning three. Emeka is a boy's boyactive, an adventure-seeker and in love with orange, balls and anything that moves. For his birthday, I wanted to give him a special treasure box filled with things I know he'd love. It helps that this gift also removes things from our basement, treasures long forgotten by my 7 and 8 year-old. I swear, too, that anything labeled with their name is automatically special.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't worry about this being perfect. Its a fun, colorful way to use those extra shoe boxes we have laying around because of those growing feet.
