One of the things I have always struggled with was what to do with my kids school stuff. I have four children and keeping all of it is not realistic. For the past 14 years the collection has grown and been stashed all over our house...my closet, our garage, the kids' rooms . . . you get the idea! Well, this summer I was inspired by this:
Danyelle at www.dandee-designs.com had a great solution. Be sure to visit her site to get the specifics. But I thought, "I can do this!"
Here's what I came up with. . .Pretty cute, right? I made this sweet little cover page for each school year and attached a school picture from that year. It is a great way to help remember those special teachers and all the hard work! My goal is that each child will consolidate their things into one box for grades PK-8. We'll see how it goes. I have had to be very picky about what to keep and what to let go of. And I still have a looooooooooooong way to go!
I did mention I have 4 kids, right?
