One thing that has really been sparking joy for me lately is printing photos. I keep a folder on my phone with favorite pictures I want to print. I don’t do it nearly enough, but I am trying to get in the habit of printing one here and there versus feeling like I need to print 100 at once. It’s much more manageable that way… and it also makes me really hone in on favorites.
Most of the time I print them at Walgreens, but I’ve also been printing some through Artifact Uprising. Most are straight from my phone (versus a real camera). If you haven’t done this in a while, I can’t recommend it enough. It really makes me so happy to see some of the best memories scattered around our house.
This is also a very easy and thoughtful gift. I try to collect frames so I always have various size, shapes, and colors ready to go at the drop of the hat!! Even within our house, I try to mix up the sizes and materials– especially as I like to layer frames and they look best when they vary in sizes.
Honestly my favorite place to get frames is from HomeGoods and HomeSense. Whenever I go, I swear I walk out with at least one frame. I just went in for the first time since this winter and picked up three frames including a gorgeous silver bamboo 4×6″. And for splurge-worthy frames, I LOVE Williams-Sonoma’s selection.
