First, I want to thank Jen from Classic Play for having me last week. I answered some questions about family creativity and the interview is now up on her blog. You should check it out!

On the topic of family creativity, today I'm sharing Fiona's art caddy. We've been using this basket for several years now (You have to click on that link. They are so little!) to hold drawing supplies, but not until last week did I find what I needed to complete the package. I have picked up so many different sketch books over the last couple years, only to find each time that they didn't quite fit. So frustrating!

My luck changed at the book store last week when I found these uniquely sized, hard-cover sketch books on sale. I got home and they fit perfectly! At last, Fiona's drawing caddy is complete.

Fiona's been quite the prolific artist of late, so I went ahead and bought eight. (Multiples! I am my mother's daughter.) I have been working hard lately to set up learning spaces throughout the house. Reading spots, play and work spaces, easily accessible writing and drawing materials. Although not much will change around here this Fall, I am aware that at three and a half, Fiona is the age that many of her peers start preschool. I am looking forward to starting our homeschooling journey in earnest!

P.S. Happy first day of school to my dear Elijah!
