The first time I had to throw away some of Maggie's art projects from school I had a lot of guilt. What if she wanted to keep the scribbles she made when she was two? The problem is, I'm not a keep-everything-on-my-fridge kind of gal. I like things put away, nice and neat. One finger painting at a time on the fridge is my limit.
Here's my solution for guilt-free disposal of nearly all art projects: Artkive.
Artkive is an app where we can archive (get it?) all our kids doodles, scribbles, and crafts. Each time Maggie makes something - or 10,000 somethings like she is in Paint Camp this week - I take a photo of it with my iPhone and store it in an album. Then I can share that album with friends and family, or print the album. It also allows me to make notes about the masterpiece.
Hope this helps someone else out. Artkive away...
