Framed Art Gallery for Kids

Do your children create a never ending stream of artwork? Mine do! And when I say never ending, I mean day after day art, art, art!

“This one is for you Mommy! This one’s for Daddy! Do you like the way I drew this? Do you like the way I painted that? Do you like the way I glued all of this together? Look at this one . . . Look at that one . . . .” It goes on and on and on.

Here’s the thing, I’m one big sentimental sap. I adore my children’s artwork and want to save every little scrap. (Okay, that was an exaggeration. Sometimes when they’re not looking, I pick-up little scraps from under their beds and throw them away before they can say “I’m saving that!”) Back to my sentimental sap side . . . I’ve tried to find ways to honor their sweet artwork.

Last week, I shared the Art Display Shelves in Miss Enigma’s room.

In MacGyver’s room, we used the same inexpensive IKEA frames but instead of art display shelves we hung them gallery style.

We chose the wall area above MacGyver’s Lego/Building Area for his Art Gallery.

I like how these inexpensive frames from IKEA can even hold-up to a heavy piece of collage art that includes bark. twigs, leaves and moss. Without of frame this delicate artwork would have fallen apart many years ago.

My kiddos have multiply display area’s in their rooms. Some more formal than others. I’ll try to share more as we make our way through our great big remodel.

Estimado Sr Samper, que cosa más bonita! No es porque sea nuestra boda, es que son unas fotos geniales!!! Gracias por tomarte esto tan en serio como nosotros, por lo rápido y bien que nos las has entregado y por haber superado con creces las expectativas que teníamos depositadas en ti. Un abrazo

Love this post! We have different issues with my Flower Child, but also issues that involve long introductions and too many explanations when beginning the school year. Wishing you and CJ a fabulous year

Plein de vérités dans ce billet, après je ne pense pas qu’un patron puisse avoir toutes ces casquettes, il faut qu’ils s’entourent (comptable, …) Je pense comme toi que la rédaction d’un contrat est primordiale, après les contrats type ne fonctionnent pas et c’est très long de les faire à chaque client mais pour se protéger il faut le faire …
