Do you wonder what to do with those works of art that come home from school on a weekly basis with your little ones? With No:1 daughter, who is now 13 I kept the best in an art folder. Looking through them now, paint is faded, cracked, they are dusty - what am I going to do with them now?

With No:3 daughter I have a new system!

I lay each piece out on a white background and photograph it. I then store these photos on my computer and once a year I make an album and include photos of said daughter. I send this off into cyberspace and a few days later the postman delivers a beautiful hardback book containing her artwork, writings and funny photos from that year. She is so proud of it and I am guilt free. What a clever postman ..........
