Picture This



  Since switching years ago to digital photography I've never settled on a good solution to the storage and display of my pictures.  Looking through them on the computer is limiting and I didn't feel like they were safe (they really weren't).  I took so many I couldn't possibly print them all and how could I decide which ones to print and just how many albums could I store?
  Last year I decided to give a try to making a book with some pictures.  It was easy and fun and not too expensive.  The book documents our vacation at the beach last year and it's very well read around here.  I think it's a good alternative to photo albums because of it's durability.   And who doesn't love a book staring themselves?
What do you do with your pictures?

I, too, LOVE making books like this! There are so many cute layouts, colors, etc. to use! It IS a realatively quick and easy way to document family life! I've also gotten a little more creative lately and just had some fun - for example, we have lots of halloween costumes we have collected through the years...so we had fun letting our two youngest dress up in them last fall and I took pictures. Then I made an ABC Costume book for them - A for angel, B for bear, etc. We didn't have quite enough costumes for every letter, so then we had fun coming up with costumes for letters (e.g. Q for quarterback).Keep writng! I follow your blog!!!
