Why hang some strangers art on the wall? Keep it simple and meaningful by using your children's art or even your own! What's better than surrounding yourself with yours, your children's, or your relatives creations?
I have been saving my kids artwork since they were in elementary school. I have switched different pictures for newer ones as the years went on and some have never come down! Some of the pictures were professionally matted and framed and other pictures I have framed myself. An inexpensive option for matting pictures is Michaels craft stores (they always have a coupon). Whether you frame them yourself or pay someone else to do it, having your childrens, yours, or another special family members pictures on your walls around you is priceless!
Here are a few of my favorites hanging throughout our home:
It feels wonderful to be surrounded by the creative projects of my children!
Thanks for visiting!
Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
