My Newfound Scanner Addiction

By September 23, 2010Family

The 6 Kids

My mom and her siblings. She’s on the far left. Can you see the resemblence? People say I’m a carbon copy of her and that she’s a carbon copy of my grandpa.

Dad

My dad’s high school picture.

Mom and Dad

My Mom and Dad with my first pup Sammy, circa 1980-1981

Grandma and Grandpa and I

My Grandparents and I soon after I was born in 1982.

Grandpa, Mom and I

My Grandpa, Mom and I sometime around 1985 after my brother was born.

Jared

My baby brother Jared, all cute and squishy! I think this was around 1990?

If you’ve noticed my absence this week, I’ve been busy working on a pretty top-secret family crafting project with my mom and aunts that involves some old photos. I always love when people post family photos, so I thought some of you might like to see a few of mine.

Scanners are very addictive, but I’m so thankful that we have digital photography nowadays don’t you agree?

    I made slide show with old photos for my parents 25th anniversary and surprised them with it-they loved it! Using a scanner is such a great way to archive old photos, I’m glad to see I’m not the only geeky scanner lover 🙂

    Well anymore, it’s the best way to preserve them as well. Having high resolution digital copies and the originals safely tucked away is really the only way I really have peace of mind.

    I was just thinking the other day about how much I love looking at my parent’s/grandparents’ old photos and how when I have kids…what are they going to do? Click through my Flickr?? I decided I want to make more of an effort to get physical copies of photos I take made.

    But digital is so easy!

    I’d like to scrapbook more. Not like the uber tacky stuff, but more like what Ali Edwards does. Have you seen her site? If you haven’t, you should really check it out!
