Hello again Blinkbuggy-ers,
If you’re anything like us, you’ve got piles of the kids’ artwork floating around the joint. Then every few months, when you finally can’t take the hoarding anymore, you stare helplessly at these piles faced with a dilemma, and perhaps a little guilt: “How can I possibly store all of these “masterpieces” for all time yet how can I possibly throw them out?! After all, isn’t there something special and distinct between that yellow splotch and that one over there?”
We faced the same dilemma and would like to offer a possible solution using Blinkbuggy. Simply scan the masterpiece(s) to an image file (e.g. jpeg) and load it up to Blinkbuggy as you would any other picture. Now you can safely, and without guilt, put the originals in the storage of your choice (e.g. closet, safe…garbage – admit it, they’re not ALL great).
Once you’ve scanned and uploaded the art into Blinkbuggy, you can tag it, date it, comment on it, add it to your narrative and share your child’s genius with family and friends.
Don’t have a scanner handy? No problem! Lay the artwork on a solid neutral background, snap a picture from above with your camera phone or digital camera and then load it up to Blinkbuggy. Presto!
Here’s a an example of a scanned masterpiece that we put up on Blinkbuggy.
Remember, you saw it here first. It’ll be worth millions one day! (and that is my unbiased opinion – just look at the sticker placement…Genius!)
