If only more people took time to do this for their children!!! "What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.
Jen took her son's drawings, blew them up in Photoshop, printed them in larger sizes, TRACED THEM ONTO FABRIC, and turned them into a duvet for his bed. GENIUS! (Read this on the Young House Love blog.) I don't know a single kid who wouldn't ADORE this. you could also make it into a great graduation or wedding gift or even just a way to preserve art work for yourself.... yay!
