Today was my sweet little niece's 2nd birthday. Just like Carter, I figured she probably had plenty of toys already, especially with Christmas just a month ago. I thought about one of my all time favorite gifts that I got when I was little. I was probably about 8 and my mom gave me a creativity box. It was a file box filled with different items to help me create a book (I wanted to be a writer at that point).
Isabelle is only 2, but I thought about where I keep Carter's crayons, makers, coloring, books etc. The answer: everywhere. I don't have a central spot for them, but I do keep them out of his reach so that we don't end up with crayon marking on the walls. So, I decided to make a creative box for Isabelle. This way, even if she already had crayons, markers, etc. she would have a fun place to keep everything.
I had so much fun shopping for supplies to help get her box started. Then, I used my silhouette machine to personalize her little box. Sorry for the bad photo. Carter's has little tractors and trucks..
I thought it turned out so cute that I made one for Carter too. Of course, he doesn't have all the cool stuff inside yet, but I'm sure he'll acquire it all little by little.
