Genius Mom Moment!

So ok I had a problem.

#babybigtruck started daycare in December 2014 and since then she has come home with a TON of art work. Being a mom I didn’t want to just throw everything away so for the last year we have been stashing everything in a tupperware and had it stored in our sideboard. It has been working just fine until the other day when I said to Mr. Big Truck that we were going to need to get a new tupperware container. He said why and I said because I didn’t want to throw everything away but I needed some way to keep it all.

A couple days after that conversation I was messing around with my instagram and the instagram account that I have for #babybigtruck that is all linked to our chatbooks account and that is when it hit me! I started yet another instagram account for just the artwork that #babybigtruck brings home from school and I started a new chatbooks thread for just her artwork. Today after lunch I sat and took photos of everything that she has come home with so far since the day she started and now we have our first artwork chatbook getting ready to print and be shipped!

I am so so glad that I figured out a way to keep all her artwork without taking up a lot of space. I also love that I can one day hand her all the chatbooks of all her artwork for her entire life.

How do you keep all your child’s artwork?

  Hugs, Nikki

    You can also buy a portfolio case from an art store to store them in

      Yeah I had thought about that but again we don’t want to keep all the physical work plus some of it is bulky.
