I love kids’ artwork. It’s probably no accident that one of my favorite children’s illustrators is Tomie dePaola, whose creations have a primitive, childlike look. My own three girls have produced artistic creations galore, as I’m sure most children have. Most, obviously, cannot be kept long-term.
How can you treasure your children’s artwork?
I wanted to keep a bit of each child’s artwork and display it in a meaningful way. Beginning with my oldest, I am having a piece of each child’s artwork framed:
I haven’t had anything of my youngest daughter’s framed yet, but I will. The girls enjoy seeing their art on display in the house, and I love the memories they hold and the way they look, too. It works for me!
