Remember when you had to print pictures out before you could see them? It would take weeks before you would know if the picture you took turned out blurry or not…or if your finger was in the way. I remember that, but those days are long gone. Today we can look at the pictures we take instantly.  The problem today is those pictures are dying a slow painful death on a flash drive in a sock drawer somewhere. Thankfully Amazon Prints is here to save the day!

We live in a digital age and our photos are no exception. The digital camera has allowed us to take and share more pictures than ever before. It’s a blessing and a curse. Of course it’s awesome to be able to share those sweet images with friends and family instantly over social media but it can also become tedious and painstaking to store and categorize those thousands of memories. If you’ve been searching for a better way, search no more!

One of the lesser known perks of being an Amazon Prime member is Prime Photos and Amazon is making it even better. Amazon has now launched a whole new experience with Prime Photos called Family Vault. Now, Prime members can share their unlimited photo storage with up to five family members or friends at no additional cost. Yes, you read that right, prime members have unlimited photo storage!

Getting Gifts for a Family

I’ve been running my blog for just over 2 years now and from time to time I have gotten requests from people to guest write post to help them gain exposure or just because they enjoy writing but didn’t want the commitment of their own blog. I have largely resisted allowing other people to post here but after some consideration I decided I would loosen the reigns some and occasionally allow others to share a post.

My first guest writer is Ashley and she is going to share some tips about buying gifts for an entire family: Continue reading Getting Gifts for a Family

My Kids Were Framed

I have teamed up with CanvasPop.com to bring you one of my best giveaways to date. One of my lucky readers will win a 16×20 framed photo with 2.5 inch mat. You are going to love this! CanvasPop sent me one to review.

The hardest thing was to try and decide which of my hundreds of pictures I wanted to immortalize. I finally decided I would go with a picture that I took of my two oldest boys at one of their very first University of Florida Gator football games. I thought this would be something they could cherish for a long time and could have in their room.

Ordering was super easy, I emailed them my photo and told them the color frame I wanted. I was a little bit concerned that the picture I was sending them was taken with my iPhone. I didn’t want it to look too pixelated when enlarged but it looks great. They even sent me a digital proof to look over before they mailed it out. Everything looked fantastic!

Canvas Pop Preview

When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was the framed picture was significantly larger than I was imagining. The dimensions are of the photo on the inside, so the mat and the frame add to the size. I was pleasantly surprised. Here is a picture of the frame sitting on our coloring table.

The next thing I started to notice was how they seemed to pay attention to every detail. The wire used for hanging in the back is plastic coated. So even though the frame has a little bit of weight to it, it didn’t dig into my hands if I picked it up by the wire.

The mat had a small beveled edge on the inside, it’s not just cut square. That adds a nice touch.

The back had a paper backing glued on to give it a very professional and finished look. I appreciated the detail they put into the back of the frame that no one was ever going to see.

All in all, I couldn’t be more pleased about this wonderful new addition to my boys’ room and I hope they grow up with fond memories of Gator football.  I’m  excited that one of you will get to win one of these fantastic 16×20 framed photos. If you want to enter just click on the image below:

Get Your Pictures on Track

If you’re like me, you take a ton of pictures on your phone’s camera. It might not be as good as my big expensive camera but it’s pretty dang good and it’s always in my pocket. As a result, I’m always using it. Next time I get a new phone I’m going to get one with extra memory, but that’s a different topic altogether.

After a while I have so many pictures on my phone it’s hard to sort through them all. I’ve got pictures from outings with the kids, pictures of grocery lists, screenshots of random apps, blurry pics and pictures I took just so I could remember where I parked. I try to go back and delete pictures that I don’t want but sometimes the task just gets away from me. Continue reading Get Your Pictures on Track
