I try to avoid clutter at any cost. I don’t like to hang onto things. I guess it stems from the 5 different homes I lived in as a child and the 13 times I’ve moved as an adult. Regardless of that, sometimes life happens, resulting in clutter. Take for example, my kids artwork. I wasn’t sure what to hang onto and what to toss, so I figured I’d go through it at a later date. 11 years later, I had enough artwork to fill our entire recycling bin. Whoops.
In figuring out what to toss and what to keep, I came across this idea on Pear Tree Greetings. Perfect. It only required me sorting through all the kids artwork and deciding what was gallery wall worthy. For my gallery wall that I’ve been putting off for the past 4 years (procrastinate much?)
I tried to be intentional with every piece I hung, I didn’t want to hang stuff just to have crap on the wall…most are from our vacations and there are photos of all the kids cousins up there, as well.
I still have the other side of the hallway to do, but don’t want to hang too much, as the hall is very narrow and long. I’ve got some more snapshots of artwork and need to do another art collage, though. I am so incredibly happy with how it turned out and love that I can look at their art that they’ve made over the years.
