Do you love your kiddo’s artwork but never know where to put it all (there’s only so much wall space right?)? Have you ever found yourself surreptitiously sneaking some art into the trash (gasp!) and hoping someone doesn’t notice? We’ve found the perfect solution to store your child’s art! Art4Keep digitizes your children’s artwork and converts them into a keepsake coffee table book (you’ll also get digital copies of your child’s art!). Art4Keep then curates each and every book in a personalized manner. This solves the problem of storing and helps declutter your kids’ artwork (and saves you the mom-guilt of trying to get rid of anything!). Whose brilliant idea is this you wonder? Art4Keep is founded by Sujata, a fellow mum (of course!) and expat who’s also a full-time Emergency Room doctor, so she truly gets what it means to be a busy parent. We love this clever and creative solution to storing kids’ art meaningfully!
