I have to start off by saying I LOVE pictures. I probably take too many, although I do know someone who takes A LOT more than me... and that's my mother in law. She loves getting as many pictures as possible of her grand babies. She takes pictures of everything, it's great (most of the time!) She just got back from visiting her other two grand babies and I'm looking forward to seeing all the great pictures she took. Anyways back to my love of pictures. I have a lot of pictures. Pictures are so easy to get unorganized and I am an organized freak therefore I have three easy ideas to get those pictures organized and stay that way.
Part 1: Shutterfly
First with any pictures I take, that night or within the
next couple days I upload all photos to my computer. Then my pictures are separated into folders by month and year. That step makes it so easy to find a picture you are looking for. It also makes it easy to find and upload pictures to the wonderful Shutterfly.
I absolutely love Shutterfly. I started Shutterfly when Brynlee was a baby. Each year I put her pictures in her own special book. She loves them and so do I. They always turn out so nice and well put together. This is the way I organize my girls very own pictures. Of course I am working on Brynlee's fourth book now and Ellie's very first book. Their first books obviously start with their births and end with their first birthday. The others start with pictures right after birthdays and end with their birthday.
Another great thing about Shutterfly is every time I go to order a book there is always ALWAYS a coupon, and guess what else? I have gotten FOUR FREE BOOKS from them. Seriously, can't get better than that!
Right now they have free shipping on orders over $30, also up to 40% off photo books.
I get the 8x11 hard cover books and I choose the customize path so that I can make their books my own. They also have a simple path where Shutterfly puts your book together all you do is upload your photos (super easy!)
I have talked about the ABC book I made for Brynlee. I have also made family and grand kids books for our parents and they are to die for!
If you want an idea on how the books turn out here are some pictures of Brynlees's books.
Make sure you check out Shutterfly today, might as well get some use out of the great coupons!
The next 2 days I will give my other ideas to get pictures easily organized and stay that way!
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
