holiday gift idea: personalized note cards

Today's fan share comes to us from Katharine of Katharine Elizabeth Photography. She writes, "Now that the holiday season is in full swing, I needed to start finding gifts for my own family members.  For my pre-teen niece and nephew, I decided a nice gift might be their own set of personalized thank you notes.  For my niece, I used the All Buttoned Up letters to create a simple 4x5.5 card with “Thank You” on the front and her name and ample writing space on the back.  For my nephew (who LOVES baseball), I used the Alphabet Frames and a photo I took at our Minnesota Twins baseball stadium and I added his name on the back corner of the card.  I love the way they turned out and I hope the kids feel grown-up having their own stationary for thanking school friends, family members, teachers, or anyone else important in their lives."

Thanks for sharing, Katharine, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate~

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
