I love it when the girls come home from daycare in child care Claremont Meadows and school and can’t wait to show me their latest artwork. We talk about it and then it sits on the island in the kitchen until I sort through it. I keep every item that is made with hand prints. I just think they are adorable and it’s a way to capture their growth over the years in a cute way. I also keep all holiday decorations to use over the years.
It’s the everything-other-than-hand-print papers that are the issue. Truth be told…these papers wind up in the recycle bin buried under newspapers. There have been times I’ve felt guilty about putting their creations there but there is just no way we have the space to keep every paper that comes into the house.
Artkive allows you to photograph your child’s artwork with your smart phone. Then when you’re ready you can create a coffee table book of their creations. Once you set up your account you can add each child and you can create a book for each one. Brilliant!
With a new school year about to start I’m VERY excited to have this app. If you’re interested go to Artkive now as the app is FREE. I don’t know how long it will be until you have to pay for it so check it out now!
