Saving Art Work-A Pinterest Inspiration

June 4, 2012

Last art piece that came home from preschool: Diego’s stegosaurus.

Diego graduates from preschool this Wednesday! I can’t believe my baby is about to enter the real world of academic life! So I have been thinking that I want to take all the art work I have saved from his two+ years at preschool and do something like this:


I currently have his art work organized in this cool and very useful Alex Expandable Art Folder I bought from Amazon. But now I can photograph all of Diego’s work and use the folder for Santi and Jordi.

Looks like I have a lot of work to do!

I also have this great Lil Davinci Art Display Cabinet that showcases and stores Diego’s absolute best work…so just because I am taking pictures and making a collage of a lot of artwork, I don’t have to throw away our favorite and super special pieces.

Storage of the Lil Davinci Frame

I can’t wait to share with you the final project!

Your friend,


P.s. Remember sharing is caring! Please pass my blog along to your comadre, hermana, tia o amiga!! Gracias!

    What a great idea! I always wondered how parents store all of their preschoolers’ stuff. I’ve also heard of rotating a hanging frame or board where the kids can hang up or pin their favorites until the next batch.

      Sleeping Mom, I love that idea too and the one that looks like a clothes hanger, where they can use little laundry pins? Too cute. My problem is I don’t want to throw anything away…but with 3 boys…can you imagine the pile? 🙂

    That is a great idea. I’ve been meaning to do the one with a cord, but I feel I need to decorate de whole room!

    I have been saving all their art work. An now that they are older I ask them that if they wan to get rid of something they could do it, that way I don’t feel guilty. Is that bad?
