My sister was involved in a Titanic swap here recently and since the other two people have received their packages, I am free to post these. I had made her one and she liked them so much she wanted one for each person she swapped with. The outsides are different, the insides are painted the same: black with a quote. So, here they are.

Box 1:

Inside lid:
"The starboard side of the Titanic struck the big bergand the ice was piled up on the deck. None of us had the slightest realization that the ship had received its death wound." --Dr. Washington Dodge (Survivor of the disaster, but later committed suicide)

Box 2:

Inside lid:
"...before you realize it, you're living with her. Before you realize it, you're married to her. And let me tell you something: There is no divorcing the Titanic. Ever." --Dr Robert Ballard (He discovered the Titanic)

Box 3:

Inside lid:

"...but in all my experience I have never been in any accident of any sort worth speaking about... I never saw a wreck and have never been wrecked, nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort." Captain Edward J. Smith (Captain of the Titanic)

I know this thread is kinda old but I really wanted to comment.

Those boxes are beautiful. And the quote on the 2nd box is one of my favs. I sometimes put it up as my MSN Messenger personal message.

by the way, first post. lol. (:

i apologise in advance for my endless obsession with the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2. but hey, you have to admit, obsessions are fun. *grins*
