Kids artwork bookWhat do you do with kid’s artwork from school & growing up? If you’re like my mom you keep it all in a big folder until your child is old enough to decide what to do with it. {haha} After years of pondering what to do with it I finally decided to use a promo code for a free photo book and capture it all in there. A. It would take up less space and B. There is a greater possibility more people would see it in a book rather then at the top of a closet shelf.

That process was rather easy, since most of my work didn’t have dates I only added in the pictures {without descriptions} in as close to in order as I could. {One thing I would suggest is adding the year and a short description to each piece of art you keep so it is easier years down the road.}

    I just love this idea!

  2. That is the best idea I have ever seen for artwork. I am super, super sentimental so I can’t even tell you how much enjoyment that would give me!

    I think this is one of the best ideas! So often, their work gets ruined with time. What a great way to preserve memories.
