Just a Quickie Tonight. . .

It has been a L-O-N-G day for me!!! But I had these pix printed about 2 weeks ago to share with you all and I just have not had time to get them posted. Tonight I made sure I did it!
So - here's what I wanted to share with you all. The prints below are 4x6 collage prints that I made at Walgreens. All you have to do is upload your pictures and select collage, pick the photos you want in the collage (you can do a TON or just a few) and they will automatically build a collage for you. If you do not like the placement you can "shuffle" the images around until you get it just how you want it. They will even add a title for you (I wish I would have had one like that printed for you guys to see also). You can do them in either portrait or landscape, pick your border color & thickness, font, and font color. They come in 4x6, 5x7($1.99), 8x10($3.99) sizes. The 4x6 is only 29 cents!!!

This is one I did of my Bug - playing on her ladybug quilt I made her

And this is my Monkey playing in the bubbles at the sink after I did dishes.

I did these collages quickly with photos I already had on Walgreens so they are not anything great - but I wanted to show you this option.

Costco offers this service too, except the smallest size they do is an 8x10 - but they do offer an 8x12 which is a really FUN size! They also offer 2 lines instead of one for your title. Their 8x10 (and 8x12) price is only $1.49 and they go all the way up to a 20x30 for $8.99.

This is a really great way to add a lot of photos in a small space or tell a whole story with lots of images using only one print in your YITL albums. And you are not having to do any work at all! You can't beat the prices either!!!
Anyhoo - I hope this was a helpful idea for you all. Let me know if you end up giving this a try - I would love to see what you come up with!
Talk to you soon

I Need A Clone of ME!!!!!

Do you ever feel like this? I have decided I either need more hours in the day or a clone of myself to get everything done! There is so much that needs to be done and so much I want to get done and somehow I am just scratching by these days.
I wonder if I am just less organized?
Has life just gotten so much more busy?
These are the questions wandering through my mind lately. Well, I have no answer. I do however have lots of excuses/reasons why I always feel (and am) always a bit behind. I suppose I am telling you all of this to let you know I am sorry I have not made my Friday posts the past 2 Fridays. I promise to try to do better. I actually write a post for you almost everyday - funny thing though, the post never seems to escape my mind through my fingers on the keyboard and onto the blog!
Well, enough rambling from me tonight. I hope you are all have a super fantastic weekend and I hope your week is the best ever for you!!! I will be back soon with photos to share and hopefully something inspiring for you as you continue your YITL journey with me!
