My sweet little darlings make the most beautiful artwork. Scads of little handprints papers and crafted treasures are stuffed in their baby books and all over our house.
As much as I want to keep every little piece, my kids are only 2 years old and 4 months old and I am already running out of space. YIKES!
Let’s also be honest. Do you really need 50 cute handprint turkeys? Probably not…
What to do?
Insert a new app called Artkive. (This is NOT a paid endorsement.) It allows you to make digital scrap books of your kids artwork by taking photos of it From the albums you can print hardcover books.
If only you had the time right? Wrong! Mail them your artwork and they’ll photograph and upload it for you for a small fee.
I can’t speak to their customer service because I
haven’t ordered a book or used their paid archiving service… yet. However, the app is fairly intuitive and allows you to access stored artwork easily.
What a neat tool, right? Plus now I can store every scrap without adding to the clutter or feeling guilty about tossing out a future Picasso’s first strokes. I will still keep a few special hard copy pieces, but Artkive will definitely simplify the process. Plus once I have it set up I can snap photos of art from my phone.
Artkive is officially on the to do list.
Have you used Artkive? What are your thoughts? What other ways do you save your little ones momentos?
Peace, Love & Archiving,
