I know it has been a really long time since I’ve been here. Too busy with work.
Sad thing is, it has been years since I’ve been able to work on a project because of family reasons, work and just trying to keep my head above water.

Many of you have seen and commented on my pride and joy project. A box I made years ago for my Nephew. It is in my profile. I designed it with a secret compartment which has acted as a time capsule from his first birthday when I gave it to him, with my plan being to show him the secret of the box and unlock the time capsule in this heirloom on his 10th birthday.

I’m so embarrassed to have to post this… : (

This may now never come true. I have posted the full story at the go fund me site which is really my last hope for this poor six year old to not lose this gift and its contents forever.

If you can spare a moment, please click the link and read why my heart is breaking right now.

Thank you all. Be safe and God Bless.

Just to repeat myself…

This was a great project and it would be a shame for your nephew to lose it in this manner.

I’ve donated and challenge all LJ’s to search their hearts and wallets to find a way to help resolve this situation.

John? Any chance you’re still here? I just ran across this and I hope you were able to retrieve the toy box.
