My Creative Space--Books and a Box

School is back on. I'm the teacher of four kids, four different grades and about 4,000 different subjects. I'm also taxi driver, cook, supply officer, nurse, mechanic, char all know the drill.

But in the midst of all that I need creativity. Like air, like water, like's an essential. I know you can relate.

That's why I had my eye on this little beauty: the purely portable, highly durable, darlingly adorable small sewing box. I've been wanting, wanting, wanting it but held off until Head Honcho got paid last week. Then, I pounced.

It's perfect for holding everything for hand-sewing yo-yos: some pre-cut fabric squares, the yo-yo maker, thread, needs, scissors...and a hippo for company and good luck.

I can make yo-yos while my daughters are reading to me, yo-yos while daughter number one pokes around not getting her math done (rolling my eyes), yo-yos while overseeing recess, yo-yos in the evening during Scooby Doo time (cause you know my girls can't live a day without watching some part of a Scooby Doo dvd).

That's my creative space. What's yours? Don't forget to check these ones out too.

Cute little box. I love the print on it, and it's perfect for those yo-yos for sure!

Portable craft is an absolute must for busy mums/taxi drivers.

You're going to end up with about a million YoYo's.
