What do you do with sentimental things?  Is your home, basement or attic being taken over by them?  Do you find it hard to get rid of ANYTHING?  How do you determine what to keep and how do you let some of things go? How do you organize things that are keepsakes? Where does the need to hold onto these things come from?

The Portland artist I mentioned that does impressive illustrations of animals dressed in clothing is Ryan Berkley and his website and work can be found HERE.

  3. The Math- how did I come up with 228 pieces of art ?? If a child attends two years of preschool before Kindergarten, attends class 19 weeks in one school year and has an art activity twice per week, that’s 38 pieces of art- over six years (through 4th grade) - front loaded of course, since preschoolers tend to create more art than 4th graders for example.  Some create multiple pieces of art per day so this is a conservative figure.
