This month’s project is inspired by my late father whom was almost never seen without his journal, mechanical pencil and stick eraser. Always the same ones and he took pleasure in always knowing where they were. I try to do the same and carry my favorites back and forth to the office. I enjoy the ritual of taking them out of my bag and putting them on my desk. The simple beauty of a device that has the power to make a change, to turn an idea into something I can share and reminds me of my father is, well, something that is hard to put into words.
Of course, a basic pencil box would do the trick, but I wanted it to be more useful, something that adds to my daily routine and maybe, just maybe, helps to tell a very small but special part of my fathers story.
The inlay on the top and the inclusion of the v-carving is another nod to my father. We both shared an interest in flight and without his support in my life choices, teaching me to keep my fears in check I would not be where I am today.
The addition of the mobile phone slot took care of a desk organization problem I have been having. It creates a place to put my mobile while it’s charging so I don’t have to keep looking for it.
Hope you download this free project and make it as is or... "Make it your own."https://www.vectric.com/vectric-communi ... /PencilBox
