It’s spring cleaning time and that means organizing a lifetime or two worth of photos! Whooo! (Guh.)
Let’s break this daunting task into bite-size pieces, yeah?
Step 1: Choose a place to store photos
Pick one place to stash your snaps and stick to it! This Wall Street Journal article makes it easy to find your perfect storage fit, whether you’re a simplicity-lover or tech-savvy pro.
Step 2: Organize at a reasonable pace.
Set aside just 5-10 minutes a day to organize your photos. Then treat yourself to a cupcake, you’ve earned it!
Step 3: Preserve your favorites.
As you go along organizing, you’ll find a few photos that you want to save – maybe even for generations. Like of your parent’s wedding or that time you met Justin Bieber. In the ever-changing digital age, it’s hard to know what the best archival solution is. Take a few minutes to read through this write-up from Photo District News which covers a 3-point consideration for saving your best shots. *Spoiler alert*: Prints are still king. Have you heard of a little something called Parabo Press?
Whew, that wasn’t so bad was it? Now … about your closet …

Mother’s Day is less than a week away, and we’re compiling every idea we have for your perfect gift.
We know our own shop is stuffed full of fun goodies for Mom and we’ve already handpicked the best handmade gifts for her too.
But we’re so pumped about Mother’s Day this year that we decided to scour the ‘net for juuuust a couple more awesome gifts.
- This Wood Block Cleat from Artifact Uprising is our favorite way to show off their signature prints.
- These personalized Stickers are super affordable, unique and ripe with possibilities.
- Personalize this Spa Box to showcase your favorite mom-time photo while also giving her a way to enjoy spa-time.
- Who doesn’t love cookies? Gift Mom a Cookie Box Subscription … and, uh, grab us one too while you’re at it. Mmmmm….cooookies.
Sometimes the best gift is time. Take her out to dinner, a movie or both! Spend some silly time taking instant portraits or making a photo recipe book. You’ll have a great time and create something to remember.
Mom rocks, and you do too! Make this Mother’s Day a blast for you both.
