When BK started Mother’s Day Out this past year, my heart melted each and every time she would bring home something she made at school. Even her chapel coloring sheets were enough to make me want to buy a frame and adorn the playroom walls. As the year pressed on, I became a little overwhelmed at the sheer volume of things she was bringing home. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love all of the things that she is making in school, I just don’t have a great place to keep it all. And the thought of throwing it away, well who am I kidding, that was never in my thoughts.
So logically, it stayed in a bag beside our desk until last month. No, really, it was quite the eye sore.
I had quite the time organizing all of the artwork and sorting it out for the book. Now that I know how simple the app is to use, I’ll take photos as she brings things home. So while you have a few more weeks left of summer, I would suggest digging that old artwork out and making yourself an Artkive book. This way you’re ready to start fresh for the new school year and you can stay on top of it as the year progresses. At the end of the year, it will be easy to order the book you’ve been adding things to each day.
