I had a few questions on one of my photo projects from February. I didn’t clearly describe what I was doing, so here it goes…
Kids come home with a lot of art work. A lot. As parents, we would love to save and treasure it all, but there’s a lot of it (have I mentioned that?).
As HJ brings his masterpieces home, I set them in a pile on my counter. Leaving it in a place that will drive you crazy is key to curing procrastination. Since I hate piles, I quickly like to eliminate the art work.
To do this, I take a picture of it. Then throw it out. GASP. I throw out the art work. I save it all to a file on my computer, and edit and crop in picmonkey. Then, I uploaded the masterpieces to snapfish and created a photo book.
All of HJ’s art work from 2010-2013 created volume 1 of his art books. Being in school now, I know the books might fill more quickly, so I am hoping to stay on top of it a bit more this time around.
I think it’s a fun way for HJ to show off his work and progress. And, it saves a lot of storage trouble for me!
