Coin Collection

I have always been fascinated with coins. I like their various sizes and colors. I like to see the design changes over the years. I like the way the cool metal feels in my hands. I like the sound coins make when they clink together. I like the weight of them in my pocket or in my purse (to an extent). I like to find them in the dryer on laundry day! I like to pick them up when I find them on the ground. I like that, though they are small, they have value and significance.

Over the years, as I have come across old and unique coins, I have saved them. My collection is small and simple but it is something that I enjoy. The oldest coin that I own is a penny from 1918. That coin is nearly 100 years old! It is dented and tarnished so it is not worth much but I like to think about the places it has been and the lives that it has touched along the way. I can imagine a young child standing at a candy counter with that penny in hand. I can imagine a mother, counting out her pennies to pay for groceries for her family. I can imagine a father, saving his pennies to surprise his family with something special on Christmas morning. So when I hold my little 1918 penny in my hand, I am not only holding a piece of metal, I am holding a piece of history!

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
