Fighting Photo Overwhelm: Five Things to Do with Your Photos (Besides Scrapbook Them!) Part One

by Lain Ehmann on November 22, 2010

Facing photo overwhelm? I know how you feel! While I am the queen of fast scrapbooking, even I have more photos than I will ever be able to get on the pages of my albums. No worries! Those pictures don’t have to sit in a shoebox or on your hard drive. Over the next few days, I’ll offer you five ways to use your photos – without scrapbooking them!

1. Display them in a digital frame. A digital photo frame just might be a scrapbooker’s best friend (right after a great big bottle of UnDu!). Simply load all your favorite shots onto an SD card, plug it in, and you’re ready to admire your photos without having to lift a tape runner. I like to display my latest card full of photos to see which shots I like the best. It gets me in the mood to scrapbook!

We actually have a couple of these frames, including one at my husband’s office (he isn’t one to display a bunch of family photos, and this works perfectly to allow him to be minimalist AND a family man!). My next idea is to load one full of the kids’ artwork and have it on constant display.

P.S. The frame pictured above is the Coby Dp700Blk 7-Inch Digital Photo Frame and is available at Amazon for only $35, and is one of their highest-rated frames — particularly at that price! How cool would it be to pre-load it with photos and send it to Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas?
