What's in your art box?

My kids are pretty busy. Just because it's summer, they are not slowing down. My daughter alone goes to theater camp in the mornings; gymnastics, piano and yoga in the afternoon. I know, I know, sometimes I feel bad and I think we've got to drop a few activities. But just yesterday, she asked if she could go to gymnastics camp. Crazy, I know. Especially because she goes to gymnastics twice a week! One and a half hours each time!

So anyhow, unless it's camp time , I usually wait in the lobby or coffee shop. Sometimes I crochet, sometimes I knit, sometimes I read. Today I brought my art box. Just looking at my art box makes me happy, because yesterday I decided to decorate it. It so happens that I have a  HUGE  collection of stickers - which I have been hoarding. That's another story though.

I finally decided that my sticker collection is getting ridiculous large. And it would be a waste if I didn't enjoy and use it. So I got a few of my japanese & korean stickers and started sticking! It's a work in progress, but this is how it looks like right now.

Interested to see what's inside?

The top drawer contains gel pens, scissors, glue, correction tape, a stapler and various accessories which changes with the seasons. Today there is washi tape, flowers, brads, a little owl stamp, etc.

The second drawer contains all of my pens. There are lots of sharpies, a few pigment ink pens, copic pens and metallic pens.

The bottom drawer contains paper (I've got a lot of heart shaped ones these days), rub-ons, die cuts and other paper-related things. On the bottom right you can see a little project I was working on this afternoon :)

Well, that's my art box. What's in yours?
