Art

I have several prolific young artists at my house. The hard part was figuring out what to do with all that art! My good friend, Bethany Hissong, had one of these fantastic shower curtain lines from IKEA hanging in her gallery, HATCH. I stole the idea and finally got it installed last weekend during our winter storm. It hangs along the only really long uninterrupted stretch of wall in the house...the little hallway in the basement that leads to our bedroom and bath. I would love to have several more of these, but for now, I will just have to have rotating art displays. If anyone else has some great ideas for storing and displaying prolific young artists' work, let me know!

another place we hang art...this is in the kitchen

Nathaniel getting in on the act!

Benjamin loves to draw with an ink pen...lots of roads, houses, and people, all with a story to tell!

after the cats moved in, he had to color this picture (printed from the internet as none of the big people in the house could draw a good enough cat!)

hard at work

Very cool and crafty, Terri! I love it!

I also like that big blue calendar on your bulletin board. Where did you get it?

This is so great!!! I've been wanting to put up our "idea wire" at home too, but it's on the "to do" list still! Tell Benjamin that I love all his drawings! Your kids are inspiring me!!
