A gift from my Grandmother in 1983 ! , might have been where my passion for interior design began.

This Interior Design Planning Book Kit from Crayola was the perfect little gift for the artist in me. I remember countless hours of drawing and re-drawing rooms! It came complete with vellum , a T-square , templates and much more! So you could create and re-create over and over. I loved it!

Honestly, Art, Architecture and Design is in my blood, I was born an artist, it wasn't just this cool toy that I got for Christmas When I was 10years old , that made interior design so appealing to me. I was the little girl who enjoyed hanging out with Daddy after school and in the summer at construction jobsites watching renovations. I loved it. I couldn't wait to see the next creative transformation.

My Dad, forever in my eyes, is the most creative man I know, That's really where I would say I get my "design eye"..... Having my Crayola Interior Design Planning book was simply the icing on the cake.

This Crayola Interior Design Planning Book is so old and brittle, It's time to frame the little guy!
Thanks MOM ! for never throwing out this awsome Keepsake ! Moms are The Best !
