You hung THAT on your wall?!

DD is only one so she doesn't make us much artwork, but our niece is 8 and she likes to draw so once in a while we get pictures from her and they immediately get hung on our wall (we have an awkard wall with the security panel and a phone jack).  

People comment that it's weird we hang up artwork, but I like it.  Not only does it show that we value our family.

What do you do with artwork from your kids?

 I have some on the fridge and some on the wall. Just the paper I LOVE showing off what my kids can do and I have an entire wall I use for it. :)

All over the fridge, their doors and a few are in the hall way. They ask if we will and we say yes

I think it's weird that people think hanging up your kids art is weird! 

We aren't to that point yet with DS, but I will surely hang it up! We have a great wall in the kitchen that would work for that.

I always hung up their artwork.  I loved it!

I bought a 20x16 frame and rotate my dd's artwork every month. I have it hanging right near the door so everyone who comes in sees it right away. I love it. Plus there is artwork on the fridge, the standup freezer and my pantry door.

It's not weird, but I only display stuff on the fridge.

Most of what is in our living room was done by our children.. some early drawings and paintings and collages, later photography.

 ... most of it goes in the drawer but my kids still get their art work on the wall.

Yeah, I have an oil painting of Monet's Japanese bridge that  my daughter painted when she was 7.
