Michael Tortello recently published a New York Times article on one of the challenges parents of young children face: What do I do with all of this artwork?
Some of those interviewed and some the comments expressed the same sentiment that brought about GlitterDuck. We don’t like having to discard our children’s work, but we also don’t want our homes to look like something out of an episode of Hoarders. What can we do?
Often times we’ll do some filtering and a few pieces will reach the place of honor on the fridge and eventually be moved into a storage container. But what about the rest? As a fan of B-side work there is often times a lot to appreciate and remember in the other work. Sometimes they perfectly capture a time, an age, or an event. Other times it’s fun to watch the developmental progression of our children’s skills.
GlitterDuck lets you archive as much of the work you feel is important and capture those memories while keeping your house from busting at the seams. Choose what you would like mailed back or what can be recycled. GlitterDuck is currently in beta and will open its doors soon.
