It was a socially busy weekend but I did find the time to open and marvel at the stack of prints I recently ordered at Persnickety Prints during their recent INSD sale. It's quite a process organizing the prints chronologically and then placing them in the appropriate albums.
I'd do myself a favor if I didn't wait so long to order. I'm usually able to make it happen about every 6 months and I'm always happy when I do make that effort. It's one thing so see your pages on a screen, but completely different to hold them as a tangible keepsake in your hand. It's also quite a feeling of accomplishment to see all your pages collectively as body at work.
Looking through the pages always makes me smile as I relive some of the moments from the past 6 months, some ordinary and some momentous, but most would be forgotten a few years from now if I didn't make the effort to take snapshots of our lives and assume the role of being the story teller for our family. I have no doubt, that these pages will be the treasure of my old age.
It is also fun to compare the FotoInspired Layouts from last year when I switched from a one page collage to a double-page more artsy approach.
Every time I doubt whether I should print my layouts, I'm reminded just how accessible and important that hard copy is, both now and for generations to come. Technology will continue to advance, but sharing a book or album with an upcoming generation of new story tellers will never go out of fashion.
Persnickety Prints did a fabulous job as always with not a single element out of place. While I undertake the task of creating the pages, they have the more important job of bringing those pages to to life. I'm very grateful for the superior service and quality they consistently provide.
