Save or Toss?

I have a little problem.

It's this thing:

What is it, you ask? Well, according to Rowan, it's a masterpiece — a book that he created using pens, markers, blue painter's tape, glue sticks and what he calls "special scratch paper."

Naturally, I'm quite impressed by my son's determination and creativity. He worked on this thing for almost 45 minutes. should I do with it now? Have I given it enough recognition by taking a picture of it and sharing it on our blog? Can I recycle it now? After all, when it comes to art, the process is more important than the end result...right?

What would you do?

Have Rowan give it to Grandpa or Grandma. They love to see it when they visit. Now I need a bigger ref. Love, MB from CF.

According to a Organizational Specialist that was on Oprah last year, she said that you obviously cannot keep EVERY art project that your child makes, so, for things that they feel are Great accomplishments you simply take a photo of it and toss it out and once you have quite a few photos of Art work you can then go and make a photo book of Art from Shutterfly or Snapfish and it not only showcases your child's masterpieces all in one handy spot, it makes a great Coffee table book and is the perfect keepsake for them to have forever. :) Right now I have a scrapbook going of all of Miley's art work, I haven't even done anything special with it at all, I simply just slide the art work into the pocket of each page and I'm done!
