Today is, “Works for me Wednesday’s” over at,” Don’t try this at home“. I have been sharing small organizing tips on Monday’s but switched it up this week to participate in this forum. I already told you about my shoe pockets, packing lunches, and how I convince myself to give stuff away. So today I decided to show you my valentine cards that we are sending out this year.
While window shopping last week I saw antique valentine cards for sale in the display window.(Window shopping is the closest I have been getting to a store) I leaned in to get a closer look, and can you believe it? They were the same cards that I gave away when I was a kid! I’m an antique! They were were a little too pricey for me but that giraffe got me thinking…..
I have a love-hate relationship with my children’s art. I love to have it but hate to see fifteen sheets of paper flapping off the fridge. And although I could use a work-out program, picking up all the masterpieces from across the living room, down the stairs and under my feet 2o times a day does more to tear my nerves apart than it does provide exercise. So I have to find something to do with them, something that will not take up space and could be useful. So I scanned this Lama that Sunshine painted.
I like this one because I watched her concentrate on it for a good 2o min. She chatted with me about who she wanted to mail it to, cousins, aunty’s, and grandma’s, the recipients kept changing every two minuets. Now we can send it to everyone on the list and I can throw the original away saving my back the agony of picking it up. And it keeps my Francois; the environmentalist, and accountant happy too!Happy Valentines Day!! Let the painting begin!! What have you done with your children’s art projects?
