Typesetter's Tray

Somerset Studio magazine had an article and pictures by Lynn Perrella about a typesetter's tray. It has all those nifty sections in it...and I have a best friend I love very much. We've been friends since 4th grade. Well, I don't see her much. She still lives in my hometown of Chicago in our old neighborhood. She collects Eisenberg jewelry, I didn't know what it was, but it's pretty neat. So, I try to find a piece for her for her birthday and Christmas. I blew this past birthday and picked a rather odd looking piece. I could tell from her note that she thought so, too. Gee, I felt so bad, I found another piece! I'm not a great one for wrapping packages, but the minute I saw the typesetter's tray, I knew I had the perfect box for her present. One little cubby would have done it...but I decorated a lot of them, and put her little Eisenberg elephants in it and covered it with piano roll paper. I had an absolute blast! I hope Cindy will like it, too!

Gosh Lynn, what a perfect gift for anyone to receive - your friend is a lucky lady and will surely appreciate the time it's taken you to make it.
