solutions for an artistic hoarder

I've mentioned this on Instagram already (@jessmckinley) but Max is my little hoarder. He wants to save basically everything that he draws/gets from Primary & he draws a LOT. Things were getting out of hand (think piles of paper in multiple spots all over the house!) so I knew I had to come up with something. I've used Blurb multiple times to make my blog books & I'm always really pleased with how they turn out, so I used them again to make Max his very own book with his drawings inside.

We've been working on it for a long time, taking pictures of his art & throwing them away as we went, and then he helped me actually make the book by dragging all of the pictures into the book template. It went smoothly (as usual) and Max could NOT contain his excitement when the FedEx man delivered it right after he woke up. It turned out just how I was hoping it would & I hope that Max treasures it for a long time.

We sure do love you Max! 
(Hoarder & all!)
