What do you do with your kids' art?
So hanging them on the wall is an option, even in a proper frame. But where else can they go? I mean that children can produce exponetial amounts of pictures, some that are worthy of retention, some are barely indistinguishable marks which will soon be used as a shopping list. In my house they first reside on top of my microwave, until I read the latest Fly Lady email saying to declutter a 'hotspot'. In these terms, my microwave's upper surface is a towering inferno. Then they get shoved in one of the under-bed boxes until I have a yearly sift through. But what happens when these boxes are full? Well mine are pretty-much bursting- but I've always been meaning to scan and upload the pictures I want to keep, and so this blog was born!
Another note- remember to write down the name of the artist and date as you'll never remember.
