Life can whizz past us in a haze and at some speed. There is no hiding from the fact that while we live our lives, often time can feel like it’s dragging, but you ask anyone can you believe it is actually September and the response will be something along the lines of just how quickly time really flies. In this modern world of smartphones, digital cameras, and social media, many of us are trying to capture the memories as best we can. Taking snapshots of our lives no matter how mundane or exciting one day to the next is. Which is why I wanted to share some of the ways we can capture that memory and ensure that we spread the love. Either to ourselves or to others.
Let’s embrace snail mail once more
Decades ago, the only way you could keep in touch with someone was sending a letter. There is something quite endearing about it, and these days it is now seen as exciting to receive something in the post. Whether you decide to write a letter including some pictures or sending some photo postcards online the novelty of receiving something in the post will never grow old. This is a great way to share images and pictures and even your thoughts with older friends and relatives.
Create an application group
If you like the idea of keeping things digital, then why not utilise phone applications to create a group message. Apps like Whatsapp can enable you to create a group chat, and then send images and messages between one another, having a group discussion and sharing the memory together.
Use phone software like iCloud sharing
Some phones like iPhone have a photo sharing option through the iCloud that enables you to upload pictures to an album that has been shared with another iPhone user. This can be a quick and easy way to keep your images tidy on your phone, as well as sharing them with friends and loved ones.
Spend some time scrapbooking
Scrapbooking is something that you may have done as a child, but there is something quite nostalgic of creating them as an adult. Whether you are doing if for your own personal gain, or for children as they grow up, scrapbooking can be a fantastic way to capture the memories and share images as well as souvenirs. It works well for days out, holidays or things like school breaks.
Create a photograph album
Years ago, people used to spend time placing printed pictures in albums and having them stored on their bookshelves. So this could be something you might want to bring back and incorporate into your home. Thankfully, the tradition of things like a wedding album has died out just yet.
Display your most loved shots in frames
Finally, when was the last time you updated the photo frames in your home? Why not add some of your most recent and favourite captures to your frames and display them proudly around your home? It’s a constant reminder of happier times and memories
