Just sharing some love...with Real Memories!

I started my blog in an effort to collect some of our memories. Traditional scrapbooking??? Just. not. going. to happen. Along the way, I have discovered an almost all-consuming love of photography. I have more pictures than, frankly, I know what to do with. During this holiday season, I decided it was finally time to get some of them framed and hung on the walls. I came across a wonderful website that takes all the hard work out of doing just that....for a very reasonable price, I must say. The site allows you to upload pictures...and then...the fun part...choose a frame, matting and a whole host of other personalization options. I received my order today...and seriously...I almost cried. While I can't show the surprise I ordered for Jim, I will show you the small picture of Lia and Li Li that I had framed for Lia's room. It turned out better than I even imagined (no doubt aided by Debbie's photography expertise...she gets the credit for this picture! :-))...and I know Lia will be thrilled. The framed photos arrived safe and sound...packed so securely, I think they could have withstood any manner of delivery abuse.

I don't do much advertising on my blog...but if you are looking for a place to turn your virtual memories into Real Memories...check out this wonderful company!

Wow -- looks beautiful! I will definitely check it out. I know I feel like I have lots of great photos of M, but not framed or put up to enjoy -- what's the matter with me anyway?? I think I hear a New Year's resolution forming.

Have a great weekend - it's almost here!

The picture is BEAUTIFUL.....that website looks incredible....thanks for sharing. I am so not organized with my pictures in this house.....for all the pictures I have posted on my blog, I wish I had even a quarter of the framable ones hanging in my house.....once the holidays pass, I will look into ordering some....you made it sound pain free and easy!!

Happy Holidays:)

I too have found that I love taking photographs and have way too many of them. The ones framed need to be replaced and now you've given me the inspiration to get going on that! That photograph is beautiful and I will keep that website tucked in my favorites. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work with all of your beautiful photography!

Cool! I just popped over.....and will have to check out this website. They would make grandparent gifts!

I am right there with you on no scrapbooking....I love other peoples....but it is not happening here either. I bought all of this cool Asian scrapbooking stuff for a lifebook for Sophie.....that was probably 3 years ago......and it is all still in the bag! If it does not happen before Mei Mei comes.....I have a feeling that it never will!
