 What do you do with all your childs art work you want to save over the years?

 I only save a very few things. Otherwise, I hang it all for whatever season it is, then take a pic and save the photo and throw it all away.

My dd is still too young so we don't have anything yet! But I did save all the cards from her baby shower in a shoe box and put it in a closet so she can read them when she gets older! I plan to do the same with most of the art work once it comes off the fridge lol!

We got this awesome frame from target that's specially made for artwork. It has hinges and opens up. So you don't have to take it off the wall to change the picture. And it has space for storage in the back. :)
As soon as DD gets a little older I plan on getting one for her artwork too.

I have a drawer for each kid in my closet that I keep all their stuff in, pics, drawings, cards...etc...

I store it in a box labeled with the name of each of my kids! Well, not all of it...

We had poster frames for his work. At the end of the year, I'd go through the best pieces and store them in an accordion folder or hang them on my office door. The ones that I couldn't keep, went descreetly away. You really can't keep everything, but you can keep most.

 Bad mom. I don't save. I have a tote that has their baby books, and "important" things they made in school, but with all the art work my kids generate to save it, would create a fire hazard.
We have a "gallery" in our kitchen where we hang artwork, and some seasonal work will get stored with holiday decorations, but the rest of it gets recycled.
