Any one who knows me or reads my blog knows I am a sentimental soul, I can’t help it. Life is so precious and those wonderful memories should be captured and treasured, because all to quickly those moments are gone, and sadly sometimes so easily forgotten. I have always been a manic snapper, always having a camera handy to capture that ever-important family moment to save as a photographic memory.
I think this is why I love Instagram so much, my Instagram feed is an extension of my blog, but it’s more than that to me. It’s a place where I can record and share our travel memories; share the random photos that would get swallowed in my bank of 20,000 photos on my MAC.
I kid you not! I have 20k photos saved; I need to export them to a hard drive just in case my cloud breaks, but that’s a job for another day.
When the lovely people from Cheerz contacted me and asked if I had considered getting my Instagram feed printed I initially dismissed it, I have my feed there to look at when I want! But out of curiosity I decided to check out the Cheerz website and OMG I love it. If you like different, unique and a little quirky then cheers is for you.
They offer lots of different options to share and record memories from photo books, boxes, magnets, invitations to prints and posters. The thing I love about Cheerz is it has a certain cool factor that makes is a great place to check out for gifts.
I chose 2 products, an ultra cool framed collection which I will share later, and the Big Fat Box. The site is easy to use and almost instantly downloaded my Instagram feed, enabling me to choose the prints I wanted. There are so many options, coloured background, square and vintage style prints, you can even add text and it’s all so easy.
I chose a few different collections, food, countryside, family, Florida, flowers and blogging in a retro style with a white background, with the aim of creating a photo line to hang over my desk. This will enable me to change my view when the mood takes me.
My first chosen collection is Florida, I can’t describe how much better it is to have my Instagram feed hanging over my desk, all those little Florida moments that make me smile. That were so special I wanted to share them with the world, are now happily hanging over my desk, reminding me how lucky I am that I have the best family and job in the world ever.
Check out the Cheerz box, it really is the perfect gift, and a fab way to store memories. To make mini collections of big memories to share with a loved ones, or if you are anything like me, to have lots of super cool images to be creative with.
