Ever wondered what to do with the stacks and stacks of artwork from your budding little artist? Well if you read this blog you will know there are lots of things you can do!

First you can choose your favorite drawing and have me paint it onto canvas in acrylics to create an heirloom for both you and your child to last their lifetime. Something you should definitely do if you haven’t done it yet!

Then you can scan the rest of the art and store it on Cd’s, set up digital galleries and send copies to the relatives. But that can take a ‘boatload’ of work, so you may not get to it right away.

What if there was a way that your kids could scan, sort, store and send their art in a safe and easy way, all by themselves?

Well I had the pleasure of meeting, through this big ol’ web, a really neat family who figured out how to do this. Their company is called Art Bug Mail.

Originally out of the UK they are now living in my beautiful Province of British Columbia, Canada and thought I would ‘put the bug in your ear’ about their cool service. Check it out at www.artbugmail.com

When I showed my kids the Laser Light Crayons by Philips, they started begging! "Can you buy that for us, PLEASE?!?…."

Not yet available this amazing child’s toy is the coolest high-tech art equipment for kids that you will ever find! Basically, (if you could call something like this basic) the toy is a high-tech paint bucket and laser brushes. You dip your light stick in the bucket, give it a stir to get your color and then ‘paint’ on the wall with light. There is even a magic wand to wave at your drawing to get it to move in animation!

There are so many things that make this product really cool. First is how the heck do they do that? Then there is the amazing way the colored light looks on the wall in the dark.

Also the creativity this would inspire is huge and like the Wii, it gets the child up on their feet moving their whole body, to make these giant light murals on the wall…. Genius!

I first tripped across the product watching videos on You-Tube.  Watch it and you will see just how cool it is.

After trying to find out who makes it and where I could get it, I finally found Lexie Smith’s website called Lexical Light talking about where to find info on the Laser Light Crayons. Thank you Lexie you found what I was finding a truly difficult product to find!

Philips (you know the guys that make razors) has prototypes for a whole new line of exciting products meant to improve peoples lives. The line called, Simplicity uses light therapy, interactive toys, diagnostic equipment, fitness aids etc.  enveloped in futuristic designs to enhance our homes and lives.

To see the cool kids room stuff go to the Move Your Body Tab on the site, as well has go through the interactive rooms they have there to see other high-tech stuff for your home, coming in the future. You’ll be blown away!

Warning…. The site is so cool you may just think you entered a time machine to the future and will become very dissatisfied with the current stuff in your home when you arrive back in reality!  So Beam me up Scotty, I’m ready for the future!
