Brilliant ideas for using your photos

There’s nothing quite as exhausting as returning from a holiday is there? The packing prior to leaving, the journey, the getting home and the sad realisation that it’s all over, the unpacking, the washing, the ironing, the cleaning (how did the house get so dusty with no one in it?) not to mention the emails (I had 800+ this last time as I had no internet in Sardegna) the post and a massive shop to fill up the empty cupboards.

In fact just how much time slips by before you get to look at your lovely photos, before you can sit down and remember those treasured moments of family fun?

Amongst my 800 emails was one from Bags of Love a company who take your lovely memories and turn them into beautiful keepsakes just like this photo canvas below.

I’m terrible for printing off my photos they all stay on the PC and yet some of them I’m really proud of and would like to see more often. Bags of Love offer many different ways to give your snapshots a new lease of life, in their personalised gifts section for example, you could have a photo like this one below made into a bedspread – now that would make for some sweet dreams, or a blanket to wrap yourself in on a dark winter’s night?

Clear seas of SardegnaTheir range is huge you can choose from bags of all sizes, coasters, cushions, jewellery boxes and photo books which is something I really should start doing myself. I’d love to see my last holiday snaps, or the best of in a small book that I could flick through every now and then as otherwise they just get forgotten on my hard disk. I could even get a photo like this one done in the girls’ teen years to give me a laugh, maybe not so much them eh?

Another interesting option is their photo montage which allows you to collect your favourite holiday moments or your favourite photos in one place and have them turned into a canvas, an apron or even a bean bag, now that sounds like fun!

And one favourite idea of mine which I still haven’t got round to doing but maybe this year will be a first for that too is to make a photo calendar with my favourite snaps from the year before. It’s so lovely to give these favourite images another breath of life and enjoy them all year round not to mention brilliant Christmas gifts for relatives. Here’s one that I’d add for August which I took on the deserted beach Piscinas in Sardegna not so long ago,

    Oooh Sardegna! We loved Corsica, and always intended to move south, but that was before the kids grew up and started eating the menu enfant. Now we can’t afford it!
