I like to pop in and guest blog on the topic of “How to get your images off your computer and into your lives.”
What am I going to suggest this time? Well, I am in a playful mood. A gift giving mood. What to do, what to do?
Well make your own deck of cards of course.
Here are some examples. Last fall we celebrated my Mother’s 80th Birthday. We wanted everything to be about her. We went away for a family trip, grandkids and all. We dug up some fun images from my Mother’s life and with the help of MPix made some awesome cards. During the evenings, we got together and played some cards games. It was fun having these awesome pics from Grandma’s life to chat about. ”Grandma on a camel in Egypt. Grandma on an African Safari.” It was a great way to get those images off of our computers and into our children’s lives to see and learn about. Anyone out there Nertz fans? Well, if so, you can appreciate having a variety of decks.
Needing some Father’s Day gifts? Well, these cards could be fun to give. Need some fun family activities for trips coming up this Summer? This could be your answer. How fun is it for a kid to play with a deck of cards with their own face on it? Pretty fun, I’d say.
So come on, get those images off your computer and into your life and have some fun while doing so.
