Declutter Your World and Make a Fresh Start

New Year’s Resolutions: Declutter Your World and Make a Fresh Start

It’s a new year and an excellent time to resolve to unclutter your life, home, or workplace. One place to start is your print photo collection, so you can finally get rid of all the boxes and display and share as many of your memories as possible. We help guide you through assessing and organizing your photo collection!

But photos aren’t the only thing cluttering up your environment. We share ways to clean out closets and maximize storage at home and in business, from important documents to clothing and kids’ toys.


Need a Last Minute, No Fuss Holiday Gift Idea?

It’s getting close to Christmas, and you either haven’t had time to shop or came up empty-handed. How do you find something thoughtful with so little time? One of the most popular last-minute presents is the gift card. But not just any gift card will do.

We had a client who contacted us last year on December 21 to create a gift for his wife. It was something she had wanted for a very long time – to organize her family photos so she could enjoy them more. She hadn’t managed to get the project started yet, and we suggested assessing her collection to help her commit to getting it done. We customized a gift card and emailed it to him in time to be a hero on Christmas morning!


Keeping with Family and Holiday Traditions

Family traditions are ideas and activities handed down over many years and lifetimes. They are important reminders of where we came from and give us a sense of belonging. During the holidays, our choices of food, gifts, music, and decoration communicate our spiritual beliefs and family history. They reflect what we loved most about our upbringing and provide the opportunity to share and honor treasured relationships with future generations. Today, it’s easy to keep traditions alive by creating shareable Family Tradition slideshows and albums.


How We Create “Year in Review” Albums for Our Clients

A year can pass by in a blur, leaving us wondering how so much can happen in 365 days! That’s why we have several clients a year asking us to create “Year in Review” albums. While you might think they would be looking at the most recent year’s events, some decide to go back to a specific year and work their way up to the current day. Each album year has a theme based on the most memorable highlights. It can also be devoted to a specific family member. Collecting photos to preserve this way can take some time, so we break down the project into smaller tasks.

Back to School Memories for a Lifetime

A lot is going on leading up to the first day of the new school year. Many parents will remember this day with photos and videos as they send their kids off to school, some for the first time. You’ll want to put in the extra effort for an excellent picture. Your children, especially the little ones, can be tricky to capture while trying to get them to the bus on time, but you really want to be able to look back to see how they’ve changed and grown over the years. We know from experience!


Preserve Your Memories While Downsizing Your Home

Deciding what to keep, sell, or donate

At different times in life, we find ourselves reorganizing our living space or downsizing. You may be an empty nester or a senior moving to a smaller home. Memories are attached to everything from furniture to linens, and decisions need to be made, but you don’t have to make them alone. The sooner you start, the easier it will be to make your move.
