A: No finer treat than a marshmallow-topped hot chocolate

Here we are: a full year of weekly photographs of my children. I'm so glad I started this project and could see it through to the end (I'm not a natural completer-finisher).

I'll carry on with the weekly portraits into this new year, but with a twist. For 2014, I'd like to focus on the stories and artwork, favourite toys and trinkets, as well as photographs of the kids. A documentation of their interests as well as how they are growing, physically.

For ages now, the drawings have been piling up, their corners curling, colours fading in the sunlight, while I wait for inspiration to strike. Finally, I've decided how to keep track of these prolific makes: a new Flickr account. Each piece is tagged with the name of its creator, and Flickr naturally tracks the date of upload. Really wonderful ones are to be kept in paper form as well as digital, but the majority will be online, perhaps becoming a book at the end of each year. I think this could be the perfect way to preserve these precious creations.

What do you do with your kids' makes?
