What to do with your children’s artwork…

How many of you get multiple pieces of art coming home every day in your children’s backpacks?

Or they’ve scribbled on some paper at home and they catch you sneaking it into the trashcan?

My 7 year old has been known to fish her drawings out of the trash, proclaim that was her best drawing ever and ask how I could possibly throw it away.

The latest and greatest…

We all want our children to be creative but most of us don’t want our kids to be hoarders.  Everyday, there is at least one new masterpiece in our house and sometimes twenty.  I find pictures in my purse, stuffed in desks, in drawers and on bookshelves.  In the past, I tried to have boxes of art organized by school year, but those boxes just stacked up and were rarely opened.

And another one…

My solution to my 7 year old art hoarder is Blinkbuggy!  We now keep the most special art pieces but we take pictures of the others. We take pictures with the Blinkbuggy App and they’re automatically uploaded.  At the end of this school year, we are going to create a Blinkbuggy printed album of her 1st grade art…which I’m sure will be looked at much more often than the pile of pictures that used to be in a box in her room.

The truth is that I really do love the art that my kids create and I’d love to save everything if I actually had room for it. Blinkbuggy allows me to keep it (in a slightly different form) and all of their creations and memories will be captured forever.

Check out my 1st grader’s most recent masterpieces (and yes, she has very high aspirations)…

And one more of my favorites (if you can decipher the words)…

As always, if you have any questions about how to capture your family’s memories, you can send questions directly to info@blinkbuggy.com.

Wishing you happy memories!

Blinkbuggy Announcement & FAQs: Introducing Julie (our newest team member) and using Blinkbuggy with School-aged Kids

Hello Blinkbuggy-ers!

Our third baby – Blinkbuggy! – is really starting to grow up and make new friends.  We’re so excited to introduce you to the newest member of the Blinkbuggy family: Julie Grijalva!  Julie has recently joined Blinkbuggy as the Chief Corporate Development Officer and she brings fresh perspective to Blinkbuggy as a mother of 3 beautiful, school-aged kids (the youngest is almost 6).  Not only that, she is a self-described Blinkbuggy junkie, so of course, we had to hire her.  To inaugurate Julie into Blinkbuggy, we’ve asked her to share her experience and approach to starting with Blinkbuggy having school-age kids.  Without further ado…heeeeerrreeeee’s JULIE!

Happy Memories!
