The great snow gods have not been kind to us this year. If you’re still pining for wintery white, or just hoping it’d go away, we recommend a quick (and heartfelt) appeal.
Luckily, we have just the thing to melt their frosty disposition: Photojojo’s Make-Your-Own Photo Snow Globes.
Grab a bottle, photo, glitter, and corn syrup and you’re on your way to making an offering not even the gods could refuse.*
* Rigorous, double-blind studies have also proven Photo Snow Globes effective in melting the hearts of spouses, friends, and children.
Don’t be ambitious.
That may strike you as a bit pessimistic, but we think this whole New Year’s Resolutions thing has gotten a bit out of hand.
This New Year’s, instead of making difficult resolutions anyone would have trouble keeping, then feeling bad about it when you fail, why not pick something that’ll make you feel good every time you do it?
Here’s a few fun photography resolutions we’re considering this year. Pick one that you think you’ll enjoy and start 2007 with a smile.
Eggnog, gingerbread houses, Santa Clause, Sinterklaas (for our Dutch friends), “Christmas Man” (any Germans in the house?), holiday cards, endless holiday shopping, and lots and lots of holiday cheer.
We love the holidays.
Just in time for this year’s festivities, we’ll show you how to make beautiful ornaments using your photos in just 15 minutes. They look great on a Christmas tree, but they’re just as awesome as decorations to hang from your mantle or from the ceiling.
Better yet, they can be sent easily through the mail and make great gifts! Let’s get started…
This is our second week of tasty photo treats to help you share the photo love this holiday season. In case you missed it, check out the fotoclips, technicolor camera cases, and Photo Block Kit we featured last week.
We’re very proud of this one.
We’ve been working for months to perfect our Do-It-Yourself Photo Blocks — the perfectly simple photo gifts you can make in just 15 minutes with your photos.
We’ve improved the process, improved the finish, even improved the quality of the fine hardwood blocks. And now you get it all in one box.
It’s the Photojojo DIY Photo Block Kit, available today.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone who likes to make stuff, a great project to do on a rainy afternoon, or something fun to do with your kids, giddyup.

Look, when you went on that awesome roadtrip last summer, you left Goldie at home. And that rockin’ concert you went to last weekend, same deal. Goldie held down the fort. He did that for you.
Sure, it’s not “practical” to take Goldie with you wherever you go… and we’ve all heard that goldfish only remember the last 30 seconds anyway, but even Goldie deserves a vacation, right?
Here’s a project that’ll help you satisfy Goldie’s wanderlust while keeping him safely submerged in his aquatic home.
Give the ole fishtank a photo makeover. It’s easy, looks great, and Goldie gets a glamorous new view!

There’s one sure-fire way to improve all of your shots: practice. Sure, you think, easy enough to say.
We can relate… Sometimes having a mission and some snap-happy friends can be just the motivation you need to get off your tuchus and start shooting.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a few fun ideas to get you out having fun with your camera with friends or fellow photo enthusiasts. Read on to learn how you can make your town or city your photo playground.
The minute we saw these Mailable Photo Frames, we knew we had to have ’em.
Ordinarily, when we stick a photo in a frame, we get tired of it in about a week. In a month, it’s pretty much invisible.
Since The Mailable Photo Frames are inexpensive ($2 or less), shiny and chic, and fit a standard 4×6, they’re great for putting photos all around the house. But that’s not all…
Here’s where the magic comes in: the instant you get tired of a photo, stick on a regular letter-rate stamp (39 cents in the States), write a brief note on the back, and slip it in the mail. Your pal gets a beautiful gift (with a frame and stand to boot!) and you get to put up a new photo.
Everyone wins. It’s picture frame heaven.

How can you not love a holiday that encourages you to dress up in costume, invites children to go from home to home demanding candy from strangers, and promises the annual rising of the toy-laden Great Pumpkin?
Yup, Halloween is pretty darn great.
And now that it’s just around the corner, we’ve put together a guide to help you get great photos on our favorite holiday.
Read on for creative ideas for Halloween shots, tips on how to carve your pumpkins to make them more photogenic, even instructions for making an anatomically-correct thoracic cavity cake!

People will often say that their whole lives flashed before their eyes after they experienced a traumatic event. Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but we think that sounds pretty incredible.
When Taylor McKnight started taking a photo a day on January 1st, 2004, he never imagined the project would not only serve as a way to remember a year, but also help him understand what was important to him in his life.
Whether it was his relationships, his career, or his fashion sense, recording a photo a day for a whole year left him with a rich visual history of his life. And it made him a better photographer to boot!
Now that he’s in the middle of doing it for a second time, we asked Taylor to write about it for us. Read on for our tutorial on how and why to create your own daily photographic history.
Beautiful! Simple! Cylindrical! All the qualities you look for in the finest photo frames, now available in the CanFrame — a simple DIY photo frame project from Photojojo.
Our tutorial will step you through an insanely simple way to show off your photos for the price of a 79 cent can of beans. All you need is the aforementioned can, some glue, a photo, and 15 minutes!
