Scanning Children's Art Work

Our children have tons of art work!  During their public school days, I picked random pieces from their school /art work and random drawings from home, road trips, boredom etc to keep and add to their scrapbooks.  Before I stored it away I did my best to write their name, date, age and/or grade level on each piece of art work.  This helps me from guessing the date.  However there are some pieces without dates. For missing dates I will guess the season, grade level, month or year. 
I would love to keep original pieces but it is too much. Therefore I started scanning their artwork.  I am sharing a couple of pieces (non art class) from one of our elementary children.

I love this! They will be printed as a 3x4 matte photo and placed in their scrapbook albums. For people who use Project Life or Pocket Scrapbooking this makes a great filler card!
Thank you for visiting!

I highly recommend a 3 ring album rather than a post bound album. This was a customers order and the 3 ring pink album was out of stock. I had to settle for this post bound.

Update on Life...

     This past year has been busy as we are adjusting to new life in another state - Florida.  I have not maintained my blog or had the time for scrapbooking. I no longer have a craft room due to a smaller home. I use our patio table or coffee table when I have the chance to sort supplies or pictures. I've been downsizing (trash or donating items), organizing, sorting and scanning a lot of our children's art work. I have hundreds of scans ready for print.
Another journey that has taken most of my spare time is homeschooling. Homeschooling never crossed my mind until we moved here. I will share our homeschooling journey in another page or blog - TBD. In the mean time I continue to take pictures and keep a journal. 

Thank you for visiting.
