We’re only 2 weeks into the summer holidays and yet we have already done so much together as a family and have already made so many memories, it’s been absolutely brilliant already! This is our first summer holidays with Henry having just completed his reception year, so it somehow feels especially precious. We’ve done everything from National Trust days out to festivals! It’s definitely been actioned packed so far and the best is yet to come!! (If you know, you know!!)
If you follow me over on Instagram, you’ll have seen lots of stories from our various days out. It’s been great sharing our photos too, but we all know once they go past those top 6 squares the photo disappears into the ether, never to be seen again! Stuart is brilliant at making us a family photo book each year, which is always lovely to look through, but it’s not something we have out each day to look at.
Recently Snapfish invited me to bring some of our memories to life in a very different way to the usual photo books that we were used to. They have some brilliant products on their website which range from mobile phone covers to beach towels!! I loved browsing through all the new range they have and designing my products to keep my photo memories forever.
The best part is it is so easy, you can link any of your social media platforms and pull through your favourite photos at the touch of a button. I decided to go with a beach towel first – seriously cool! As soon as the boys saw it they jumped up and down with excitement and snuggled into it (it is so soft!) and then after they started chatting about the fun that we had that day on the cruise ship and it brought all the memoires back to us all. I also thought what a brilliant opportunity for exposure sharing my website link on the towel – while we’re out at the beach people will be able to see where they can find more of our adventures!
Next, I went with a travel mug because Stuart does a lot of driving with his job, so I thought that would be lovely for him to take with him and he’ll never be far away from us! (That and he keeps pinching my travel mug so hopefully this should stop him!!)
Finally, I decided to make us a calendar for next year. So that during 2019 we can look back on all of our memories of this year and how much fun we all had as a family. It’s fully customisable so I have added personalised annotations such as George starting school in September and Henry going into Year 2. I really love this one as it will be up hanging on the wall for the whole of next year.
All these creations took a matter of minutes and they arrived within a couple of days – it was such a quick process but the memories we have created will last a lifetime.
