Works for Me Wednesday

This is the first time I have ever felt like I had something worthwhile to share on this meme, though I read it all the time!

Do you have bags, boxes, or stacks of your children's art work and school papers that you want to save, but you're just not sure where to put it? I mean, our regrigerators can only hold so much. I have found a method of storing them where they are still easily accessible and viewable.

I use Itoya Art Portfolios. These are storage/display books of various sizes. Mine are 11" by 14" and have 24 sleeves for 48 views. They are archival safe, acid free, and have a polypropylene cover. I have purchased them at Hobby Lobby and online at ArtSuppliesOnline.com. It's an easy and attractive way to clean out those boxes of awards, artwork, and mementos that you have been saving without having to create a whole scrapbook page for each one.

You can turn this...

Into this... (This is two of them)

It works for me! To see what's working for other people, go to Works for Me Wednesday hosted by Rocks in my Dryer.


  1. I put the kids best creations in page protectors and then into a 3 ringed binder. Great minds must think alike!

  2. Great idea. That's much better than an old box in the garage or getting greasy and yellowed on the refrigerator, isn't it?

  3. this is fantastic! i have so many wonderful things that most def need to come out of the brown box!!

  4. Very cool idea...thanks for sharing!

  5. Great idea! I'll buy some for the DILs to use as the grandchildren grow. Thanks!

  6. You may also want to check out the ART:archives. Two moms of little ones photograph your kids artwork and preserve it in a DVD slideshow. Very cool and you only have DVDs to hand down to your kids.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
