LOVE IT? PIN IT!

When I was a teen I used to store all the things I treasured in decorated binders. Any meaningful piece of paper, beautiful picture, magazine article, DIY ideas, quotes, song lyrics…. anything I loved and wanted to preserve.

I would insert them in different sheet protectors, label the clear sheets according to generic group categories, and put these into a folder embellished with stickers or beautiful pictures with clear contact paper on top 🙂

For example, my brother had a baby and I live abroad. I really “need” to get pictures to see how he is growing up!

My brother creates albums (folders) and uploads pictures, and I can see them all by just logging in to the website… and not only that, I can show off my nephew’s pictures using the Dropbox APP installed in my phone!!! And believe me… I do 🙂 Continue reading
