I don't know about you but I have loved photos for as long as I can remember. My grandparents had thousands upon thousands and this is certainly where my love of both photography and vintage was born early on. I loved looking through the photos that went back as far as the 1800's and photos my grandparents took while they were dating; the ones my grandfather sent to my grandmother while he was in the Navy and the ones she sent back to him of her wearing capri's and cat eye sunglasses sitting in the yard. And from a young age I was constantly buying roles of film and paying twice as much for one hour photo. Now my pictures, years of my life, sit on my computer always a threat to be suddenly lost. eek! One of my goals for this year is to actually print the some of my photos (but ack, with the digital age I accumulate thousands in a month! oh, remember the good old days when 36 photos was a lot?!). And now with instagram on the scene I have even more photos. Well to inspire myself to start this huge undertaking and find a cool way to use a few select photos to reward myself once my task is complete I went web surfing. Who knew there were so many amazing options? And as you see, so, so, so many of these options are specific for instagram shots (clever folks). Now to get started on the organizing part so I can get get my reward!

How do you keep your photos organized? Any tips to share?


  1. I love the wall collage. I should do that in my 16 yo's room!

    1. i do too, i was actually think of doing that for my sons room as a headboard! i also love the big floral collage. of course the styling around it probably makes it all that much more amazing looking!

  2. I love old photos too. You should definitely get into the habit of backing them up every couple of months, even if just onto a CD (from someone who HAS lost pictures in a computer crash!)
    I really like the tray option for the instagram :-)

    1. you are so right! i have two harddrives in my desk with photos i wish i see! my goal is to get this done and then as you say back them up more regularly so it's not a job that is going to take weeks next time : )

  3. Very nice!!! I love the iphone case.
