It is so functional, and what better way to store all your desk items in one location.” Pam

Pam, What an utterly charming and sweet look for a desktop organizer. I'm sure this would make a great teacher's gift at any grade level! I also love Sue's use of the Paper Doll line by making a little folio that adults and children will both enjoy.
