I received a “letter” from my little great-niece Lu [my niece Tiffany’s daughter]. Isn’t it adorable? I know you don’t understand the special language she used to write her letter, but trust me. It is full of ❤ for her favorite [great] aunt–me, of course! She even used my favorite colors!!!
Thank you for sharing your spectacular work, Lu!
Lu is the adorable baby in this post and this post. She’s now a whole two years old, grown enough to make art and send mail!
We’ll be spending a lot of time indoors over the next few weeks, and kids will probably be making art almost daily–drawings, sketches, paintings, crafts, and more. If you’re like me, you already have an entire museum of your kid’s art in albums, on the walls, in piles on your desk, and in a sealed bin beneath the art table. 😀 Do you really want the task of finding ways to display or store weeks more of artwork?
Of course not!
Lu’s special letter prompted me to offer another snail mail quick tip: Art in the mail!
Sending art mail is a cute way to
dispose of share some of the precious art your kids make. Simply place those one-of-a-kind masterpieces in an envelope and send them to grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents, friends, and/or the kind senior citizen who has a soft spot for your family. This will not only let them know you’re thinking about them but will also provide a bit of sunshine while we’re all sort of “stuck.”
If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I send and receive a lot of art mail. So–even if you don’t have children, you can send your own art.
It is so easy, but yields so much joy!
