I don’t know about you but I’m always adapting my organizational systems for my kids and their ages. Especially when it comes to writing and art – which go hand in hand, don’t you think? At ages six and nine, I’ve given the girls work spaces and easy access to supplies. Not only that, I try to display as much of their writing and art as possible.

I love putting the girls’ art in a mat and frame. I need to change this more often but no matter when they created the pieces, artwork is my favorite way to decorate.
