quick and easy photo album

I can't believe how easy this photo album was to make. I am so happy to have my pictures printed in a book.

I have visions of creating gorgeous albums, every year, for my children to pour over when they are older.  I imagine well-planned books filled with pages of our memories.  I can’t tell you how much I value printing your pictures.

5 photo valentine’s day card ideas


Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and some of us (myself included) might have dropped the ball again, and are currently scrambling to come up with some cute Valentine’s Day card ideas to make in just a few days.  If you opt for store bought valentine’s day cards that cost $2 for 20, there is no shame there.  I may not be able to get my *you know what* together in the next few … read on–>

These family slideshow songs always make me tear up when I pair them with our slideshow!

  I cannot believe the end of 2015 is upon us, it’s time for me to start choosing my family slideshow songs.  Every year, it seems like I blink, and the year is over.  It always makes me a little melancholy.
