I LOVE my photos. As my friend, Tiffany, said, "They are my only valuables." (Things not humans :)
I could not agree more!
A few years ago, I received a digital photo frame for Christmas. (I was running out of space to put photo albums.)
Well, we have SO enjoyed looking at all the "current" photos on the frame that I decided to scan the previous years...upload to a USB thumb drive...and watch them on the digital frame as well.
To be quite honest, I found myself getting upset when I found the old photo albums strewn around with pages ripped out or pictures missing. Am I the only one who does that?
This solved that problem as well.
The further back I got in years, I realized that maybe, just maybe, my children would appreciate their own USB thumb drives, with all of these photos on them, when they are grown adults.
I must admit that this project is more off than on. I usually start it back up this time every year. (My new year's project :) I just now finished the year 1999. That's a LOT of photos folks!
The first one is the only time-consuming one. Now I just have to copy everything from one to another and so on until I have five USB thumb drives. (I purchased my USB thumb drives - bulk - at Sam's Club.)
Definitely an act of love, but I'm pretty sure that they'll enjoy them when they are adults :)
