We all have picture frames around the home to celebrate special people and special memories. It makes me smile to use them for other things too.
If you’ve got children, then you’re sure to have had a small tree worth of drawings over the years. Quite frankly, for me, excitement and cuteness rating for them depleted after the first 100 pictures/colourings:
“Oh beautiful! Aren’t you clever!” [recycling box].
And I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been caught scurrying out to the paper recycling box with ‘artwork’ hidden inside cereal boxes, only to be caught red-handed by the mini artists and reprimanded:
“Oh, no sweetie! Who put your special pictures in there? Must’ve been Daddy! Phew, that was close. Go stick it on the fridge. It’s beautiful!”
As a result, paper recycling generally occurs during school hours these days.
Now these notes I save. In fact, I treasure them! I have piles and piles and no recycling box will gobble up these precious Little Miss musings. If I could frame them all I would (I must get creative with this!).
You’ve got a frame going spare somewhere in the house. I know you have! Frame an emotion.
(And remember people….recycling is for school/nursery hours!)
