The holiday decorations are finally put away and you’re thinking it’s time to work on getting organized. In fact, you’ve even thought about tackling those big bins in the basement or attic filled with your children’s artwork.
Jumbodog is graciously giving my readers 10% off when they order a book by February 14th! And, I am thrilled to offer my local readers in Westchester and Fairfield counties an extra incentive. They will waive the fee ($75) for an at-home pickup if you order by Valentine’s Day. You can literally give them a bin of artwork, favorite stuffed animals, trophies, etc…and they will organize everything in a beautiful book. You can preview your book and make up to 3 changes before your book is printed. They can even help you decide what to include if you need an objective opinion. Just email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention you saw the offer on Pretty Pink Tulips.
If you aren’t close enough for an at-home pickup, the team at Jumbodog can help you coordinate mailing them what you’d want to include. If you want to keep the originals, they can mail everything back to you or give you copies on a cd. If this isn’t the easiest way to preserve your memories, I don’t know what is!

Hi Elizabeth, this is brilliant! I love the idea and it's one of those…"now why didn't I think of that" ideas:) Very clever.
I think I am past this, have saved so much from my kids but its tucked away in bins and boxes in storage but for someone who has young kids now and is constantly getting in "new art" what a beautiful way to preserve and always be able to enjoy it.
Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend!

Isn't that smart! I am very fortunate to have a few "masterpieces" from my niece and other small friends, this would be a lovely way to preserve it. I did the tiniest bit of organizing in the first few weeks of the year (my goal was at least 30 minutes a week on a cleaning/decluttering project)but haven't kept up – those 30 minutes always seem needed for something else.
Happy Friday, Elizabeth. Enjoy your weekend! XOXO
Oh I loooove this idea! I have so many art pieces from the boys and love this creative way of preserving their work. Thanks for sharing. x

Wow -Call me an old sentimental fool….Just today, I received a book from a dear friend of our Christmas Day at my home. It made me tear up.
I think books of this type with past and present images are such great keepsakes.
Yesterday, I was going through a file box with one son who will get this box when he moves out. It has photos and documents and even he was impressed with his past awards and achievements.
Love this kind of gift and all the effort behind it in keeping things. Posterity and legacy go hand in hand.
I miss your old blog, where you actually blogged about snippets in your life, recipes, glimpses in your home.
I feel like your blog is just one giant sponsored ad for companies.

What an excellent idea! I wish this had been around when my kids were little. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, Elizabeth! Stay warm! xoxo

Elizabeth, This is just an amazing idea brought to fruition. Bravo ladies. Love that they use not only 2 dimensional art and include other projects and even stuffed animals in the books they create!
