"Taping the kids' art to walls or tacking it to the refrigerator always seems haphazard to me," says Lauri. So she created a sophisticated version of a bulletin board in her office by lining the back wall with clear acrylic box frames, each displaying one work of art. "I get them in various sizes in bulk at the art-supply store. When one of the kids is especially proud of something or I really love it, I stick it in a new frame or switch it with something we're ready to rotate out of the mix. The system is clean and neat without being precious. And it never fails to make me happy when I look at it."
