Inspiration Page


Welcome to our Inspiration Page.  Here we’ll take you on a little journey that will hopefully inspire your next custom project.  Our favorite orders are those for custom work.  We love creating these designs hand-in-hand with our customers because it’s these pieces that mean so much.

One of the most beautiful and unique boxes we’ve created is this 8x6x6 Maple Wedding Keepsake Box.  The front displays the #1 verse used for any Wedding Box we create and the bride and groom’s names on the lid with their wedding date.  

On the inside of the lid is the Native American Prayer and inside the box is a feather with a poem about feathers on it that also has the matching Austrian crystals on it.  The sides have laser cut feathers in bronze attached and arrows on the lid edges, surrounded by colors that match their home decor.  A very thoughtful gift indeed!

Machelle was a glorious customer to work with and was looking for a large pair of boxes for her church. One was to be a ‘Prayer Request Box’ and the other was to be a ‘Prayers Answered Box’. Each box was embellished in the church color (purple) and the Cherry wood matched the wood in the church. These boxes are each 8x8x8 with a slot in the lid for the Prayer Request Cards.

“I was looking and looking for appropriate prayer request and prayer answered boxes on the internet. Then I came across a website called and met Marcella. First off let me say that my Church family absolutely loves the prayer boxes. It gives our Church members a great opportunity to present their prayer card requests to God in a private yet open and peaceful manner. Working with Marcella was such a great pleasure. She was very helpful in making sure we were getting a grade A product. Her attention to detail is second to none and her customer service skills are awesome. I highly recommend her to all. I promise you will not be disappointed. I wish I could have given 100 stars. That’s how much we appreciate her and the product she created for us. To God be the glory.!!!”  Machelle M

This project was fun and very different. My customer, Thomas, wanted to give his wife an anniversary gift. They were married on Halloween, in full costume, and the box had his vows to his wife on it along with Halloween embellishments and their wedding picture. I have to say this is one of the most unique boxes I’ve done.


“This box is absolutely amazing. We got married on Halloween and the box definitely reflected that. The vows I said to her that night came out great with the engraving. I could not be happier with it.”  Thomas P

I met Ana and her husband at a big Christmas craft show and she told me she was a doctor and wanted a box for her office.  Right in the booth we came up with the plan for her design and it’s so cute!  Can you guess what kind of doctor she is?

The box they were using

Mary purchased this for a LIVESTRONG group of cancer survivors.  She sent me a picture of the box that was being used to collect prayer requests (seen on the left) and this assured me they needed something new. It was a surprise gift so she had to sneak the photo. After working together, we came up with the perfect solution for them (on the right is its new home).

“The way it was personalized turned out absolutely beautiful! Of course the customer service was amazing too!!”  Mary R

My customer Karen was such a joy to work with.  She wanted to create a large box to store memorabilia from her time in the Navy.  She was a Radioman and now a Veteran.  She chose the 9x7x7 size and Maple wood and we were going to engrave three sides of the box and include relative symbols from her past job.  What a thrill to create this box for her and to receive so much love in return.  Thank you so much for your service!

“Dearest Marcella, Just wanted to say thank you again for your help on a keepsake box for me. I love it! I’m glad we also became friends during the process and I look forward to getting to know you better.” Karen

One of the most requested boxes are Memorial Boxes.  I have done so many in various sizes and designs; for military, friends and family and even fur babies.  Memorials are some of the most important requests I deal with and my heart goes into each and every one.  These are a handful of Memorial Boxes that have been created.
