My daughter's craft area.

I've been working more on organizing than crafting lately. Hopefully soon I'll have my spaces fully set up for some scrapping and card making. But in the meantime, here's what we set up for Abby, my 5 year old. She loves to "craft" and make gifts. This desk fits nicely in a corner in our dining room/kitchen.

She didn't want to stop using it so I could get a photo of the desk without her. Too cute! The boxes on the left and the organizers on top are from Michael's. They've been on clearance and have 2 of her favorite colors. Pink and lime green. The top and side to the right Greg made from press board. We can easily change the top to a new one when she needs a bigger desk or if it gets too dirty. I also found 2 tins from the Target dollar bins in matching pink and lime green to hold her pencils etc. She's standing in front of the pink one.

I'm making Abby a scrapbooking gift for Christmas. I'm collecting papers, stickers, flowers, embellies and a bag so she can go to some scrap events with me. I know she's going to be so happy and now she'll have a good place to keep them.

My daughter has something similar. She loves to make things - and I love to encourage her creativity!
