photo books and trips....

I've started something new when going on trips...I LOVE pictures...That's nothing new! BUT, after I take personal pictures I don't really do anything with them except store them on my computer. I've gotten really bad about printing them off unless I want an enlargement to hang somewhere in the house. So I started making photo books for all of our trips and I'm doing a yearly one of everything else! I've actually really enjoyed doing this and it's a way that I relax. I've mentioned before that when going on trips I like to take non-professional pictures. I know that sounds weird...but I do this to feel normal and to also know that when I return home theres not work involved in going through all the pictures and editing them. I know, I'm not like most BUT that's okay! So the last 2 trips I've been on I've created books and had them ordered to remember the trip and to display on a coffee table or bookshelf at my house so other people can look at them! I usually order all of my prints and photo books[for personal use] from Snapfish or I create the photo book from Iphoto on my mac. I LOVE both companies!

So without further a-due...Here's my photo book from our Labor Day Trip to Dillard, GA

What are ways that you use/display your photos from trips?

What a fun book! My family has a house in Rabun County and it was so fun to look at all these places from your pictures that we have been...the Dillard House, the animals they have, and the outdoor flea market! Glad y'all had fun :)

Amy! That is such a great idea. I need to get more motivated to actually use the million pictures i have on my computer! I have to say, my favorite page is the last one where of course we all know what Miss Ashlyn was up to! haha! Love you.
