While I love crafting with my son at our kitchen table, it was important for me to make a creative space for him that’s all his own now that he’s getting older. I had three goals in mind when creating his space, which I’ll share with you below to help you create your own craft space.

Nature has always been my favorite canvas. I live in Southern California, and although there’s not an abundance of leaves to paint there are still options that don’t include palm fronds. If you live where there are no leaves, or they are currently covered in snow, keep in mind that you can use all of the following techniques on leaves that you cut out of paper!
I LOVE art supplies. I can’t get enough of them. As you can see from my Instagram page, the only thing I love more than art supplies is rainbows. When it comes to taking my art supplies on the go, it’s important for me to have a carrying case that’s not too big or too small, but something just right. Something Goldilocks would approve of. I really didn’t think such a case existed until I saw the OOLY Mighty Pouch. I can’t believe how much I can fit into this expandable case. I’m often taking supplies on the go for both myself and my 6-year-old so this pouch works great for both of us. You can even fit a mini iPad inside! While I love the bright colors that the Mighty Pouch comes in, I thought it would be fun to create a personalized pencil pouch and make it more my own. Below are a few ways to personalize your own Mighty Pouch!
