What do you do with your kids artwork they bring home from school?

When my son was in preschool he was always bringing these treasers home that he made at school. They laid around the house and either got pitched in the trash (I always feel bad about that but I hate clutter) or I started to put them into a binder.
This year he is in kindergarten and I decided we need to keep these treasers in an organized way. We created this really cute binder with each month of the school year called out and we will be filling this binder up all year long.

For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
