2010 is almost over and with that, I find myself reflecting on the things I’ve experienced and accomplished throughout the year. It’s been a great year, however, I did find myself having mental exhaustion that affected me offline and on. It wasn’t until recently that I nursed that exhaustion and so now, with a fresh outlook, I look forward to 2011.
As someone who has a camera attached to her hip, I often take the time to reflect on the photos I’ve taken. They tell much more of a story than I could ever tell but it just gives me a chance to go back to that moment and remember how it affected me, my family, or my friends. As I decided to do this, I quickly realized that it was sort of a pain to thumb back through my blog, my flickr account and through files to find my favorite photo moments. I needed a way to create a book of memories; something I could hold and look through by myself, with my family, or with my friends. A photo book is the solution.
I’ve made a photo book before but not to recap the year. I think this is such a great way to preserve memories. I know that with today’s technology, we often overlook the thought of having something physical in our hands to flip through but I also know that my boys absolutely love going through our photo albums that I created years back and you just don’t get that same feeling gathered around the computer, or at least I don’t.
Kodak approached me the other day and asked if I knew about their SMARTFIT technology photo books. I didn’t. She told me about it and asked if I wanted to try it out and give you the chance to try it and of course, I was happy to. It was perfect timing after all. FYI, the SMARTFIT technology is well, smart of course. It’s pretty dang easy to use and has tons of quality options to make your photo book look fantastic. I love when things are easy. I’m a little bit more experienced with computers and such compared to the casual user at home so I always try to look at it through my mom’s eyes. Will she be able to use it and understand the options, instructions, and extra features. I’m confident that she’d be able to with the Kodak photo books. To give you an idea of how it works, here’s a quick video.
Here are a couple of my 2010 photo memories that I’ll be adding to my photo book.
