Paper Cup / Popsicle Flower



I have a pile of these “art” that I need to organize and put away.  But first, I have to scan or take a photo of each one of them and feature some of the nicer ones on Mini Masterpieces –a blog that I started to keep track of and document Josh’s and Zoë's creative endeavors.

Part of the enjoyment of being a parent, for me, is seeing the pride on their little faces when I ask them, “Who made this beautiful piece of work?”

Hi Buckeroomama! Have I mentioned before that artistic talent runs deep in your family?

Happy Wednesday!

Run DMT said...

How cute! I started taking pictures of my kids' art work too. I have a friend that makes a photo book for each school year. Isn't that a great idea?

Michelle @ Flying Giggles said...

Nya's mom said...

That's so cute! And, I love the idea of scanning and photographing the art so as to document their masterpieces!

I almost said that I can't wait until Nya starts making little art pieces, but, I realize that, yes, I can wait. lol.

I started doing that when my oldest was in kindergarten and then stopped. I need to get it all organized though as he's going in to high school next year, my middle son is going to junior high and the little one will be starting preschool!

Lindy said...

How creative of them!

Kasie said...

aww. you're such a good mommy.
What a great idea to scan them & track them on a blog. They will treasure that forever.

Sue said...

Well that came out great. Good idea documenting the creations.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

It is a beautiful picture. I need to start scanning the kids' artwork too.

Salma said...

That's gorgeous, I still have all the art my kids made when they were young.

Good idea to keep them on a blog. Really neat idea.

@Tyne / @Chocolate Covered Daydreams: The center of the flower was yellow crepe paper.

Tiaras said...

oh looks like a great craft for today!

Tracy said...

That is a great idea for keeping track of their art. My daughter is older and there were no blogs so all of her best work is just stored in a box.

And Miles To Go... said...

that is beautiful! Awesome.

Mrs.Mayhem said...

Beautiful picture! I just love art by little kids. They're so creative and not at all self-conscious.

I hang my kids artwork in our playroom art gallery. Whenever they bring something to me, and I tell them we'll hang it in the art gallery, they beam with pride.

Honey Mommy said...

What a colorful craft! I love that we can save digital images of our kids art. It takes up so much less space!

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

What a lovely work of art!! (I do the same thing...scan or photograph their stuff. Then...ahem...I chunk most of it. With four kids, there's just no way to keep all that stuff. Makes me feel like a better mommy when I save it all on the computer...)

Brenda said...

Its true, we can never do enough to encourage creativity in our children.

natalee said...

it's beautiful!!!!

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip said...

What a great idea!! I need to try scanning some of my kid's stuff so that treasures like this one don't get broken and lost. Thanks for sharing!!! I love this.

Lynda said...

That's really gorgeous! I want to scan all my kid's stuff, but never seem to get around to it. :(
