If you have young kids, you know that every day they bring home artistic masterpieces they made at school. Up the artwork goes on the fridge to be proudly displayed until the next day when it gets replaced by a new masterpiece. Of course, you’ll end up tossing some and holding on to others because they’re too precious to get rid of. Instead of keeping the best pieces in folders or on top of a dresser, make the most of your kids' pictures by framing them. Buy some affordable frames like we did here, fitted with a plexi-glass, which makes it safe to hang in kids' rooms and also make it easy to rotate the art.

It’s scary because you don’t want to miss your shot and end up with a bunch of mistake holes that you’ll have to cover up. Arghhhhh…I
