Why? Because I am not sure where else am I supposed to store the endless stream of 'artwork' that is shipped home from Luke's daycare on an almost daily basis.
Yes I know, these pieces are all precious, one of a kind, works of art created with love and affection by my talented 2 year old. But really, this is getting out of hand. Especially since it seems wrong to chuck any of them out.
Whenever I think about doing just that, I can't bring myself to do it. My logic ends with something like: "Awww, we created Lukas....and he created these. How amazing is that? I can totally see where he was going with those scribbles! "
Then back on the shelf they go.
So, for lack of a proper place to display them, these art pieces are beginning to pile up faster than the dust bunnies under Mrs. LIAYF and my bed. And it's like Watership Down under there.
Something needs to be done. I can see that people aren't giving away any big refrigerators. And honestly, I don't have the room for one anyway. However, I have heard about people getting animals to create art pieces, then selling them. Sometimes for big bucks.
Hmmm. The artwork would go to a good home where it would be loved like it deserves to be, and I might make a few bucks in the process. Now we're talking.
Seems like a Win Win scenario to me. While I'm at it I think I'll also sell ice to the Eskimos. I'll just have to get Lukas to carve it into fun shapes first.
