New Artist

I found a bunch of photos the other day that were all of the art work the girls use to do when they were little.  They all loved to draw and colour.  It started with Isabelle.  She had Barbies, and Polly Pockets, but they only got occasional play time.  Paper, and markers saw the most action with that girl.  I got wise after receiving sheet after sheet of paper beholding her sweet little creations.  You need to know, I am not a pack rat, and much to some of your chagrin, I do consider an excess of hand drawn photos (no matter how cute) clutter.  I thought it would be a wise choice to invest in a Magna Doodle.  Remember those things?  It turns out, that it was so popular a toy that the girls would actually fight over it.  We ended up owning three, one for each girl.  The result was, that rather than having to store pounds of paper with their cute little creations.  I would simply take pictures of them, and store them digitally.  It sure saved on paper, and space.  Here is Théa proudly displaying one of her drawings.
Crate Storyteller collection papers
I can still remember what she said as she showed me this.  "Mommy this is me on the swing, and you are watching me".  I loved her pre-neck and body drawings of people.  Looking at this makes my heart ache just a little.  How is it possible that 7 years have already passed since this photo?  *sigh*

This layout was created with the April Kit from My Scrapbook Nook.  Have you seen it yet?  It is jam packed, with Crate goodness.  There are a ton of coordinating add-ons included this month too.  I'm pretty sure Pam and Leah decided to treat us, because there is definitely much more goodness than usual.  This kit has got to be worth more than the $28USD paid.  Check it out for yourself here.  It's not too late to get your very own.  May is just around the corner, and promises to be yet another great kit (do I sound like a broken record already?)  There's a fabulous deal for new subscribers as well, 2 extra kits, plus a free grab bag loaded with co-coordinating goodies to match the monthly kit.  This is a great deal friends you really should take a sec to check it out.

Hope you're in a for a great day.  Thanks so much for taking the time to come by!

Oh! Look at beautiful little Thea. Great idea for the magna doodle! I have a binder that I've three-hole punched all the girls drawings and letters to Santa, and put into.

Awww.....this brings back memories of my kiddos' first drawings. I've started taking photos of some drawings and other artwork they create to save on the paper factor but to still have a memento of their art at different ages.
