Get Those Fab Pics Off Your Phone and Share Them

How many fab photos do you have on your phone?  50?  100?  200+?

Time to release the pics from the imprisonment of your phone.  

Has your phone replaced your camera?  I used to lug my camera with me all the time but now I find myself using my cell phone to capture those can't miss moments.  Sharing pics on social media or via text is great but some of those pics are so fab they're worthy of something more special.  Those are the pics I use as greeting cards, calendars, and photo books.  



Recently, I checked out Collage.com and created photo books using pics from the twins' first homecoming dance and a trip with my parents to Virginia.  Check out this cover I created using magnified images of my eldest son's tie, his date's corsage and the tulle from her dress.  I added a title using their school colors and gifted it to the mother of my son's date.  
Personalized gifts like photo books are the perfect gift for the person who has everything.  Every Christmas I am challenged with finding the perfect gift for my mom's husband.  However, I always deliver one of a kind, truly unique, personalized gift which never fails to surprise.  One year it was personalized beer glasses, another year I surprised them with a brag book full of pics of all the grandkids and this year I gave them a tabletop photo book of their trip to Virginia.  

We took a ferry over to historical Smithfield, Virginia, strolled down Main St., dined at The Taste of Smithfield and visited the Smithfield Museum where we viewed the world's oldest ham and the largest ham among things.  A sight to see for this ham lover!  Plus we toured the historic city taking pics of all the "Piggies of Smithfield".  

Collage.com is just one of many websites I've used to create tangible items for my family and friends of those special moments in our lives.  Whether it's vacation memories, baby showers, trips to the park or the zoo, it's nice to have actual pictures to share.  Uploading pics from my cell phone or email takes just a couple of minutes and I can add text, frame pics, resize and edit to my liking.  

I love visiting my mom's home and seeing her photo book proudly displayed on her coffee table.  It's a wonderful topic of conversation and even at my age I love hearing her boasts "My daughter made this."

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
