My mom was not a big fan of saving my sisters’ and my drawings, painting or other creations. It wasn’t that she didn’t love them and proud of us. She just always liked to keep her house clutter-free. I feel that way, too, but I also don’t want to forget Sarah’s masterpieces!
So I was very excited when I came across an article in my Parenting magazine. It mentioned different ways to keep your child’s art work in a neat and organized way. I thought, “Sign me up!” I specifically liked the ease of an app called ArtKive.
I downloaded the app and started taking pictures of Sarah’s school artwork. Then I created a list of family and friends who would like to see what she made. Theoretically, I can now dispose of her art work, but since there are only three items so far, I think I can wait a little longer! However, when they start to pile up, I know I’ll feel otherwise.
At the end of the school year, I plan on taking full advantage of the option to make a book out of all the pictures. I’m looking forward to what this app will do for my crazy need to be organized and live in a mostly paper-free world!
What do you do to display your child’s/children’s masterpieces?
