I love this idea for creating a kids' corner somewhere in the home where they can sit and do artwork or projects. Having their tools within reach and easy to get to is a great idea. I love the ledges for housing books (these came from Ikea), and the simple clothespin and wire art display. This picture is from the blog The Happy Home.
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
