"The End" (Happy Birthday Zach)

"The End" (Happy Belated Birthday Zach)
A couple of months ago, my dear friend Sue Selman asked me to make this for her son, Zachary who was having a birthday soon.  I was thrilled. I have known Zach for about 10 years, he was a sweet teenager when I met him vacationing with his parents on the beach in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

He is now a handsome young man of 25 and is sweet and caring as ever.

From what I understand, he really loved getting this for his birthday, and I loved making it for him.  Happy belated birthday Zachary!  Hope to see you and Holly soon!

Inside a box lid, collaged in maps and layered in green tissue papers are children's wood blocks that spell out a saying attributed to John Lennon:

"everything will be OK in the end, if it's not OK, it's not the end" 
a miniature Hackney Carriage and a CAPPELLA drumstick finish the piece.


  1. Love this! A beautiful gift and lovely sentiment. penny

  2. Very, very cool! I am not a teenager, or anywhere near 25, but I love it too!

  3. This is beautiful; I'm sure Zachary will treasure it.

  4. What a fabulous quote! Love what you did with this, Rebeca.

  5. Merci, Elfi!

    Sharmon, thanks!

    Thanks Diane! it is fun, isn't it!
