Decluttering for the price of a stamp.

Duhdee and I have been flooded with arts and craft projects since Monkey started pre-school last September. 

He’d never had the interest or the attention span before to really work on anything with us or his therapists but now that he’s in a classroom he’s discovered his inner artiste.  He’s also discovered a muse…or rather muses (what can I say he’s a ladies man.)  The result is that we are now bringing home tons of paintings, drawings and pasting projects. 

We pick our favorites and toss the rest but we still have TONS of art projects.  What to do?  I finally had a brainstorm.  We live over an hour from both sets of Monkey’s grandparents and what better way to share him with them than sharing his creative endeavors?   They certainly seem to appreciate it and I appreciate seeing the top of my dining room table, lol.

We still have a ton of projects, we brought home another 7 or 8 this morning.  I think perhaps I need to expand my mailing list.  Anyone want an original piece by Monkey?  Only the joint project with one of his muses is off limits.  I think her love note to him written across the top makes this one memory box worthy…as soon as I find out which of the lovelies wrote it.  I’ve narrowed it down to 3, lol.

    I would join the mailing list but I struggle with the same problem…just multiply it by 4. I try to pass them off, I mean share, them with relatives but they seem to be avoiding me lately….lol.

    Oh, you must be up to your ears! Duhdee’s mom just volunteered additional space…perhaps another package to Grammy is in order already! Maybe we can use them as party favors for his birthday party? Or…ummm…wallpaper? lol
