* Magnetic Board Child's Room Display and DIY Fashion Design

My 8 year old daughter "E" is a prolific artist. 
She's been drawing since before her first birthday.
Her current passion is fashion sketching and designing. 

We got her some Project Runway fashion sketch paper for her birthday
and she sits at her desk daily and 
comes up with new "designs."

She's really good
or, I'm biased...
 But, I DO know I wasn't drawing this well when I was 8 years old!

Displaying children's art work 
is always a challenge
when you have a "prolific" artist in residence!

We needed a way for her to display her work in an organized way. 
Her other big thing is being "organized." 
She is constantly re-organizing her room and her things. 
(the apple does not fall far from this tree!)
I mounted two of these dry-erase, magnetic boards
on the wall in her room so she can display her sketches,
school projects, menus, etc. 

"E" loves them - almost as much as her 
Fashion Paper Pads!

Each design has a name too....

"Underwater Queen"

"Hot Summer Day"

"Summer Day" 

"Peace Out!"

"Comfortable and Cool"

She told me last night she has her 
"Spring Collection" up right now,
complete with handbags, shoes, and jewelry-- 
I should have taken more photos but I can't keep up with her. 

She's planning her "Summer Line" next!

Happy Organizing and Sketching!
