So, last year I saw this brilliant idea to help deal with the massive amount of art projects that our children bring home from school, in addition to the masterpieces produced at home. Well, I have never used photoshop and we don't have much wall space. So, I came up with an alternative. Probably a bit lazier and a little pricier, but I think the kids will love it. (Hope to try the aforementioned idea next year...photoshop tutorial, anyone?)
I took photos of L's masterpieces throughout the year, kept a few in a folder for her to look at in the future, and secretly recycled the rest. (I know, I know. Terrible, but necessary.) Then, I created a book on Shutterfly for her, with a photo of her on her first day of school, 20 photos of her art, and a photo of her at the end of the year. The book is en route and I can't wait to see what she thinks!
