This is such a great story for all of us who hate to have our picture taken! This article in the Huffington Post written by Allison Tate gives a good insight as to why we need to be in the pictures!
Up-cycled Guitar String Jewelry
So, no this has nothing to do with organizing photos; but I'd like to give a SHOUT-OUT to my friend Betina who just launched her new site Stringin' Along With ME She designs unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry by upcycling used guitar strings. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of her jewelry benefit 317 Main, a non-profit music community.
So, if you didn't get what you were hoping from from that special someone on Valentine's, treat yourself to her Heart Clasp Bangle :)
BRUSH UP ON YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS!
I've learned over the years, that as I go through my photos, I end up discarding so many because they are either dark, blurry or otherwise just unattractive. I decided to take a photography class to learn how to take better pictures. Here is a great resource for you if you would like to brush up on your photography skills too. Amy Renfrey, Digital Photographer and Teacher offers some tips!
While going through my photographs one day, I discovered this one of my kids taken eight years ago at one of our families' favorite places of all time. I just love this photograph so I decided to turn it into a 16 x 20 canvas! There are many companies you can get these through, I happened to use my local Staples and got this print for $29.99!
NEW PRODUCT DISCOVERY!
The last couple of weeks I had let you in on the fact that I had some computer problems. I vowed to go through the other computers and make sure that I backed up important documents and photographs. And, in the process, I need to share a great product I discovered!
It's called Picture Keeper! Just insert Picture Keeper into any USB port on your computer, click "Start Backup" and Picture Keeper automatically ﬁnds and saves all your pictures. That’s it! They all ﬁt right there on the Picture Keeper drive. What's more, subsequent backups are fast because Picture Keeper will only copy the newest images when you use it again to save your recently added or changed pictures. They come in various sizes holding up to 16,000 photographs!
I'm very excited about this product! Yes, you can buy a USB Thumbdrive and manually put all your pictures onto it…but this includes the software to make it so much easier! I ordered mine and can't wait to use it! Let me know what you think!
You never know what you will come across when you peruse your pictures! Thought I would share this one given the time of year! This was my absolutely fabulous girls trip to Anguilla! Oh how I am missing the beaches now!
