I’ve taken thousands of photos in the past few years and (up until now) how many have I printed? Virtually zero. Some are on my blog, some are on Instagram, some are on scrapbook pages, and the rest are residing on my hard drive, most likely never to be seen by anyone but me.
I don’t take as many family photos as I used to.. I’m happy to let their parents take them, and then share with me.
And then along came my iPhone, and Instagram. I know, I’ve talked about this before, but there’s something about the filtered, over-processed, funky quality to them that I totally love. There is no pressure to get the best shot ever, it’s simply fun and what I’ve ended up with is photographic journal of my creative life. My hope is that when I’m gone, my grandchildren, or great-grandchildren will look at them and say “grandma was kinda cool, creating all this art, wasn’t she?”
So that’s what spurred me to have these printed. I loved the idea of the Polaroid format offered by Persnickety Prints (this is not a sponsored post, just my experience). Well, but wouldn’t I LOVE to do a sponsored post for them? Dream on…
Anyway, I ordered the Persnickety Prints Polaroid (3×3 Print on 3×4) Soft Texture Art at $0.40/ea.
I could not be more tickled!! The quality is outstanding with great colour, texture, and size. The ordering and delivery process was fast and easy. I simply went to Persnickety Prints and clicked on the “Printing With Instagram” tab at the top, and followed the directions. I used the “Instaport” option, which I thought was fantastic because it basically backed up my feed to my computer – bonus!
So, I’ll stop gushing now :) I just wanted to share… I have my little tiny works of art displayed on my desk and I’m doing the happy dance this morning.
I hope you are too!
