artkive: saving kids artwork the easy, clutter-free way

July 23, 2013

We've discussed saving children's artwork before, but I don't think I've shared my newest method--Artkive.

It's an app (and I'm pretty sure it's free to download--it's been so long, I can't remember!) but you just snap a photo of your kid's masterpiece and you can save it in a folder for that child. You can date it and write a brief description or note to help you remember more info about the drawing or painting.

Then--the best part--you can throw the art away guilt-free! (After you've let it hang on the refrigerator for the required amount of time. ;)

I do still keep some special pieces, but this has made it easier for me to part with some of the everyday artwork or things they bring home from school or church that keep piling up week after week.

I also enjoy the feature that lets you email a photo of the artwork to grandparents or friends if you feel like sharing. It's really easy and fast and clutter-free.

I haven't tried it yet, but you can order photo books and keepsakes of the artwork once you have a good collection going.

Just thought I'd share this with you today--Artkive did not compensate me for this post at all--just wanted to spread the word on a good thing!

Any great apps that you love that you can share with me?
