She's crafty

When we go to birthday parties I like to buy gifts for kids that they can use. Clothes they'll outgrow. Toys - who knows what they like? But art supplies you can always use for fun and school work. I like to make them special by personalizing them.

I go to the store and pick up small things that can be used in various projects like beads, glue, colored pencils...

Then I take off the original packaging and put them into new plastic bags.

I print out labels with the kid's name on them...

and then cut them out and staple them to the bags like new.

Then I put it all in a little pencil box. It's like having your own personal art supply store! It's a nice way to personalize a gift and encourage the kids to get creative!

I like how the gifts are personalized. when my daughter was younger, i used to buy office supply stuff (those circular hole reinforcements, fluorescent price stickers, highlighters, colored tape), sometimes i would give it as gifts to her friends since they enjoyed being creative with those items at our house.
