My Year in Pictures

By chance on Christmas day, whilst looking for some board games we found our old photo albums. It felt so nice to look back at pictures and reminisce about the good old days. Having the pictures in my hands made me realise that in this new era of technology I never print out photos. I usually end up saving my pictures on hard drives that break with time or USB sticks that I ultimately loose, and all those memories are gone with them.

I don’t like the idea of loosing these images that capture precious moments in my life, so I thought that I would start printing out pictures. I chose 30 pictures that summarised my 2017. To print them I used the website Printiki which has many different styles and finishes you can choose from. You can even create a photo wall which I thought was very cool.  You can always check out their Instagram account if you need inspiration.

I chose the retro style in a matte finish and decided to add some text and I´m so happy how they turned out. There is something about having physical pictures that just get me reminiscing. I´ll probably end up sticking them all in a scrapbook and cherish for years to come.

Hope you have had a lovely start to the year and hope you create many happy memories this year!

  7. Always a good thing to have images that captured the best memories. Lovely shots for sure!

  8. i love printiki and have used them so many times before. there's nothing like actually printing and having an actual photo - things so often get lost on iphones these days!

    happy new year lovely, wishing you all the best for the year ahead xxx
