Eileen France IAPS 2011 7207 web

Eileen France came by with her backpack box and gave John a great inspiration. Her husband had made a side palette for her box and she so enjoys it and the extra help it gives that she thought it might be a great item to create for our boxes.  The result is our new “Palette tray” and we are so appreciative Eileen for the inspiration for this new idea. Be sure to visit her beautiful work at
