This week's Collected post is more about what I'll call "collections management". EZ E is only one so he doesn't draw much yet, but eventually he will draw a TON and then what will we do with all of his artwork? I saw two really great ideas that I thought I'd share. This also isn't only for parents...if you're like me (please tell me you're not) you may have childhood drawings from siblings, friend's and friend's kids, maybe even from your best friend's siblings (yes, it's true...I'm a sentimental freak show). Here are a couple of ideas for enjoying that art work without stashing it away in some crappy plastic tote in the attic. The bird above is by Lizette Greco and is based on a drawing her son made. I love the idea of reinterpreting your children's art...it's like a mini-collaboration. I saw the image below on Black*Eiffel (which she saw on Design Mom). What a chic way to display all of those drawings without them taking up a huge amount of drawer space. You can read more about it here. It's super expensive, but I'm sure you could scan them in and have them printed at your local Kinko's on the cheap. If you have any other ideas, please share in the comments...we'd all love to hear!
