Yes I said that right! There’s a way to save all your the kids artwork/school papers with just a hour worth of work, and very little space!
I was at my sister-in-law’s (Michelle) house one day and a delivery came. It was a book she had created through Shutterfly with all of my nieces Preschool artwork. Shutterfly is an on-line service that allows you to upload digital pictures for storage or to create scrapbooks or keepsakes. Michelle had collected all of Karli’s artwork, took a picture of them, uploaded the pictures, and created an adorable hard cover & bound picture album. She told me it only took her an hour to create it on Shutterfly! I was very impressed to say the least.
This particular book contains 83 pictures of artwork with a total of 51 pages. From what I remember from doing photo books is the limit is 100 pages and 1,000 pictures. Just think you could probably get many school years incorporated in one book. Talk about a space saver there!
I have used Shutterfly for a variety of things, but I must say this unique idea never crossed my mind. This idea is not only great for time and storage for your child’s artwork, but it can also be a touching gift for any Grandparent. Shutterfly is always running sales and promotions which would allow you to make 2 or more copies of the “Artwork Book” and give them away as gifts for a decent price.
What’s touching at so many levels is Karli will have a volume of artwork books by the time she graduates from high school, and she will be able to display them proudly in her own home in the future. Plus to take that a step further it will make it easier for her to share her artwork, that’s in books, with her kids and hopefully grandkids. We all know kids love books! Wow what a meaningful gift Michelle is creating for her daughter. (As a tear comes to my eye.)
