Tara's post on printing out her Instagram photos and I felt totally inspired!! I am a firm believer in not letting your photos just "sit." I try and keep up with photo books at the end of each year, so we can actually SEE all the fun photos that were taken. But, sometimes after I've blogged, I just leave them there and forget about them. Oops!
It's no secret that I have fallen in love with Instagram, (@Lemonademakinmama) but I've had the same problem with it. You take all of these wonderful, in-the-moment life photos, and then they just sit there. Printstagram is an awesome resource that will download all of your Instagram photos in just a couple of minutes. It gives you great options for creating prints, stickers, little books, posters, etc. I spent about ten minutes selecting all of my favorite Instagram photos, and then Printstagram mashes them into books of 50 photos, puts a little binding and cover on them and ships them out.
My kids were so excited to look back through all of the fun memories made in the past year that I've been on Instagram! I had over 1000 photos to select from, and quickly narrowed it down to 300, and ended up with six tiny books.
Christmas garlands! (I'll be taking a wait list for names for a small batch in September...)
conversation pieces on dining tables and coffee tables.
here on Instagram or follow on your phone, at "Lemonademakinmama." How about you- do you print your photos, or make albums or something?
Today I am thankful for:
A son who can mow the lawn
A friend who blessed us to free baseball tickets
A few friend orders during my "off time"
A sermon that made me weep and KNOW I am in the palm of His hand.
And I want to say a HUGE thank you to my blog sponsors for last month. I have been kind of bad at highlighting their sweetness and talent lately, but I appreciate each one of them so much. I hope you will consider visiting them all. (Their individual sites are linked on my sidebar.)
