Easy Digital Photo Collages

Do you ever runs short on Christmas cards? I think I do about every other year. On the opposite years I end up with too many. One day I’ll get it right! This year was a year of too few. I decided to order my cards from a Black Friday deal while doing some online

November Wrap Up

November Wrap Up

November was a busy, productive and celebratory month in our house. Yay! We started out the month with a trip to Iowa City to cheer on the Iowa Hawkeyes football team for a win. It was a cold day, but my newly made upcycled T-shirt scarf helped keep me warm. I was off to Boston

October Wrap Up

October Wrap Up

Oh how I love fall in the midwest. The leaves haven’t been quite as vibrant this year as years past (I hear it’s because we had a late 1st freeze last year), but it’s still such a gorgeous time of year. Too bad fall gives way to winter though – I’m not a cold weather

September Wrap Up

I was happy to see September come, but also a little happy to see September end! It’s always a busy but celebratory month for us with both our anniversary and Carter’s birthday. It’s also the switch to new fall schedules and the beginning of the busiest season at my job. This means it wasn’t an

May Wrap Up

May Wrap Up

I fully intended to get this post up on the last day of May, but the fact that I’m a few days late is pretty much how everything is going lately.  May has seemed especially busy. My job is a bit crazy right now, Carter has been finishing up soccer, lots of graduations and family

April Wrap Up

April Wrap Up

April felt like a productive month for us. While the weather wasn’t great during most of the month here in Iowa, it’s starting to come around. Here’s our month in photos, both from the blog and from our family. Follow me on Facebook, Pinterest or Intstagram to stay up to date all month long! Lots

Organizing and Archiving Digital Photos

Organizing and Archiving Digital Photos

Step-by-step tips for organizing and archiving your digital photos, including those from your digital camera and your phone. I didn’t really make any resolutions this year, but I did have a goal of trying to get my digital photos organized, backed-up, and used! I need to take care of my non-digital photos as well, but it
