Just for Heather

Here is a post just for Heather. On her Backwards WFMW post, she asked how we deal with our children's art work. Here's what works for me.

In Bubba's room, we hung a clothes line of sorts.

We bought 2 hooks, and tied some jute twine between them.

Then Bubba uses clothes pins to attach his works of art to the clothes line. When it is full, he has to decide whether to keep or trash an item before he can add another one. This reminds me that I need to hang a couple in the play room for the girls. They would really brighten up the walls in there.

Excellent idea!

We did the exact same thing in our playroom, but I'm not sure the pictures were ever changed from the ones I hung there eons ago. Hmm... perhaps I should try again! :)

That is the greatest idea! I am goind to have to copy you! I always get tired of hearing, "but mommy you don't love me because you threw that away."

Great idea! I always had to post it for a while then it "mysteriously" disappears at some point.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm totally using this idea! I'll try to take pictures of it once I get it up!
