Get Those Photos Off Your Phone and Into Your Hands

A few weeks ago a good friend of mine reached out to me looking for recommendations on print options for her iPhone photos.  Her daughter had just completed a Project 365 (HOORAY) and they wanted to do something with all of those awesome images.  As it turned out, I had just ordered some very fun…


Chloe’s New Room | 10 on 10 January

I am thrilled to be kicking off another year of 10 on 10 photos.   I love this project because it has inspired me to document one day each month with my camera and has connected me to a group of super talented photographers.  These women are truly amazing, so be sure to click through…

14 in 2014 and my One Little Word

I’m joining in on Kim Klassen’s 14 in 2014 prompt.  I think it is such a great idea to set 14 intentions for 2014, but coming up with my list was a bit harder than I anticipated. Anyway, here you go….. 14 for 2014 Find volunteer opportunities that my family can do together.  Try to…

  • Great list Kristina, one of them spoke to me. As I have just started using my iPhone to take pictures on IG that was the one thing I don’t want to happen is for me to let my big girl camera sit. I am hoping there is a true place for both of them and not neglect one for the other.ReplyCancel

    Nice weekend,

  • I love your list. I am the same way as you are with the word of the year thing. I picked one last year (accept) and then paid very little attention, but still things did happen for the better because I had that in the (very) back of my head, I think. Happy New Year and best of luck in 2014.ReplyCancel

    I really enjoyed your list. You are amazing! I really don’t know how you have time to accomplish so much and be so introspective with 4 teenagers and 2 dogs! I’m sure you will “enjoy” this year and I hope I can be along for the ride for some of those enjoyable moments 🙂 You are an inspiration. I’m going to get going on my 14 now…ReplyCancel
