i am a huge fan of instagram. it is hands down my favorite social media. i love it for many reasons, i love looking at pictures, i love double tapping and having a heart pop up on my screen, and i love using it to capture the everyday moments in my life. that last one is really what makes it superior to all the other social media in my book – i can capture that moment.
i take my phone everywhere. we all do! it is the age of the cell phone. if i do not have my phone near me, it is hard to get a hold of me. there is no home phone for you to call anymore. but i have even taken it overseas and just turned my data off – isn’t crazy how smart phones can connect to the internet and we can text our loved ones without a data plan?! (i use voxer to talk with my European friends!). it is also my always with me camera, directions, imdb info, phonebook, and music player.
if i think about it too much it is crazy to me – all the technology in one little space. also how our voices travel without wires all the way to the person we are calling! crazy. i just imagine words flying all around me. my engineer husband just laughs at my mind trying to comprehend all this! but that is neither here nor there. my love for instagram started at the beginning and has only grown as i have discovered new people to follow, new photo editing apps, and new ways to print my instagrams.
have you heard of Origrami? it is my new favorite way to print instagrams! i created a pack of the RetroPrint ($23.95 with free shipping!) and now have them sitting on my coffee table. i love these because not only do you get to print out the picture that you captured but you get all the details on the back too! the date, the caption, the location! i love it because it really is a memory. now i can look back at that fun photo i took of my husband on our date at Old Chicago when they gave him a large mug of beer on accident, or when i was a bridesmaid in Norway and being a tourist at the same time, or when we were moving my brother’s family into a new house and Elsie was picking flowers in their new backyard. i want to hold onto these moments forever and now i will be able to know when, where, and what i wrote forever.
if you are looking for a fun way to print out some of your favorite moments, i highly recommend looking into Origrami!
HOW DO YOU CAPTURE THOSE MOMENTS?
