My boys are constantly drawing me pictures or writing me notes. Their sweet pictures are precious to me, and I hated them being stuffed into drawers and boxes. I wanted the boys to know that their time and effort to create something was appreciated and loved.
I also wanted their creations to be organized in a way we could continue to enjoy them together. (One thing you will come to learn about me is that I LOVE organization. When my world is ordered rather than chaotic, my creative juices flow a little more freely and I’m able to create more moments of life to enjoy. )
I decided to organize and store their creations using a 2 inch vinyl 3 ring binder. I made divider sections for each year by age. Next, I filled the binder with their sweet treasures. Now that their artwork is in a binder, they can thumb through it anytime they like. And I can look at it and see how much they are growing based on their drawing and writing.
I love having these memories in one location. I love that my boys and I can sit down and look at their pictures together. I love that I can show the boys how special their drawings are by giving them a special home. I love the many moments and memories we can share together reflecting on their creations.
