Does your home have more “art” than your local museum? Mine does for sure. And our art collection grows daily. I cannot keep every single work of art they create. In a months time, we’d likely qualify to be on an episode of “Hoarders”. I do save the extraordinary pieces, but many works of art make their way to the bottom of our recycle bin while the kiddos are at school. But even the extraordinary pile is getting out of hand.
I recently stumbled upon an advertisement for one of the best FREE apps EVER! Its called Artkive. This app allows you to photograph your work of art, then categorize it by child and age. You even have the option to add email addresses to instantly share the art with family and friends. Even better, you have the option to create a book or other photo-type gifts and keepsakes. Here is an example of a picture I downloaded:
This is going to eliminate so much paper clutter in my office. Then I got to thinking…what about “artkiving” certificates of achievement from school (and/or activities), then creating a book? It would make a very special graduation gift!
Seriously, you MUST check this app out! I LOVE IT!
