My submission this week to Illustration Friday.
I was thinking of what it would be like to be a shell, alone on a beach, with not another shell for miles around... inevitably feeling as if there SHOULD be more shells, and perhaps I was in the wrong place? Maybe, just maybe... if I found my way back into the ocean, I wouldn't feel so lost anymore...

So, as you may or may not know, my precious little Kyle (who is 3!) has recently begun school. He absolutely loves it, and that makes me so happy. He is adorable! He gets so excited to go outside in the morning to wait with me for the bus :)
One of the coolest things is that he brings home these awesome projects that he does in school all the time. Some of these things are just the cutest... especially the "winding" snake hat! So creative! See?
The only problem is that our apartment is very, very small... I even share my room with my two little ones. Kyle's is obviously the car bed, and my little daughter has the crib. The one with the black comforter is mine :) A tight squeeze, but we are doing great!
I do have a shelf, but it is already over crowded lol... it's a window sill/shelf. And it is not an appropriate place for his projects. I've already put several up on the walls, but there are things that can't go up there... like some hats he makes. Besides, I don't want them to get all cruddy on the wall.
Here are some special things I've gotten from some even more special Etsy people! But I digress from the point of this post, lol...
See, I know many of you are Moms... and all of your kids have probably made tons of projects in school... I know I can't keep everything or else I'd be a hoarder, but he's so young, and school's just begun... I want to keep these items safe for a while. Hopefully, one day he'll want to pour over them with his own children.
So I am asking you, my loyal readers, if you have any ideas for keeping his projects safe? Maybe a binder, or a box (which I'm kind of doing now, but still... it seems kind of like I'm just putting it away...) I want to do something that will keep these items nice, and also something where Kyle can (even now) enjoy them.
Any ideas are very welcome and much needed, so please... reply away! Thanks so much!!!
