Secretary Art Box

This is my niece Mia's xmas present from us this year. I converted an empty box into a secretary fit for busy little hands like hers. She loves to draw and color and paint. This box has custom dividers, pockets and slots to fit all her supplies: paper, three hand-bound books, colored pencils, a notepad, markers, gel glitter pens, erasers, stapler, scissors, water color pencils and a water brush. She will be busy on Christmas Day! I can't wait to see her use it.

She would faint. She's a girl who isn't happy until she's made three pieces of art on any given day. In fact, I should have her bust one out for you. She's going through her snowman and kitten phase right now. I had no idea the two subjects were related but...
