Sunday - Printing Images

Today I was not very original with my Sunday image. I had other ideas in my head, but they didn't work out as I had planned. So, plan B was initiated.

I am a huge advocate of printing images. Although currently I am not selling my images, however I am thinking about offering them online. I still have to work out the details; the how and where I will sell them.

I have two wonderful professional print labs that I work with; for different products. One is Artifacts Uprising (you see some of the images below). I like to use AU for square prints, but especially for cards. The other printer I enjoy working with is Color Inc Pro Lab for my larger prints. Last week I gifted one of my long time friends with a print, and it was such a joy to see her eyes light up. It makes me very happy when people enjoy my printed work.

Print Your Memories

Last year, my mom passed away after she suffered a stroke. Even though I live 6,000 miles away, we were always close. It broke my heart when I visited my mom the very last time. Just 8 months before we celebrated her 75th birthday. Thankfully I was there for that celebration. During that visit I mentioned to my mom that I only wanted one thing. Her photo album that contained photographs of her youth. Little did I know in 2014 that it would be the last time I would see her laughing. I cherish that short time I had with her. And of course I took photos. Now over a year later, I am starting to scan the photographs of my mom for my sister. Today I want to share some photographs of my beautiful mom and my handsome dad.

The first photograph is of my mom sitting on a Vespa. She was always smiling, and that is what I remember most about her.

The next photograph that I scanned, is showing my mom as she was - beautiful, young, and full of life.

And the last photograph that I have scanned thus far is of my dad. He was stationed in Bodenteich as a border guard when he met my mom. He was so handsome.

You may be wondering why I am sharing these. It is a reminder for you to print your memories. Your children will be thankful one day that you did. And I practice what I preach; I print my memories. The below images were printed at Artifacts Uprising.

Until next time...keep smiling :)
