Happy Halloween Everyone! I can hardly believe its been 31 days since I launched my website, FB page and now have the Blog up and running. I am glad everyone has enjoyed the daily tips! I've had a blast creating them and still have lots of things to come! From now on, I'll be updating my blog a couple of times a week and continue to provide ideas to take you through the holiday season. So onto (drum roll please...) TIP #31: Create an Art Gallery at Home...I bet you have lots of wall space in your garage - doing anything with it? How about an Art Gallery of your kids master works. The items come home in droves so how about displaying for a bit and then it's easier to let it go once it's been admited for awhile. My boys loved this when they were younger as we saw the gallery everytime we came and left the house. I loved it since we could brighten up a normally dull spot. Consider this for use in a hallway to a rec room/kids play room or anywhere there is some wall space a bit under utilized but that you can string some yarn or ribbon between two tacks. Then paper clips and the masterpieces are all you need. I also love this for older kids/offices/craft rooms where photos, cards, reciepts, tickets, etc., could be clipped up and kept handy.
