Tiny Prints Makes My Life

Hey y'all! I hope you're as alive as one can be on a Monday morning. 
So a couple of weeks ago happened to be my parent's 20th anniversary- 20 years of love, laughter, and learning to love each other's faults is a long time, so naturally, I wanted to do something memorable to commemorate the occasion.
That's why I was so excited when Tiny Prints, an branch of Shutterfly, I received an email from Tiny Prints about the fabulous services the site offers. One click, and I was in love- gorgeous, and completely customizable card designs, thank you notes, stationary- they have it all! On top of everything, their customer service is impeccable (Thank you Kricel, for all your help!)

I knew we'd be having a party for my Parent's 20th anniversary, but they didn't know what hit them when I set up these two cork boards with pictures from the last 25 years through present day. I called it "The History of the Rajanas"

In addition to the photos, I wanted my parents to have something to remember this day by, so I ordered two lovely sets of photocards from Tiny Prints, and had guests leave notes- advice, memories, good wishes- just about anything!
I've gotta say, it was a HUGE success. My parents were absolutely surprised, and all the guests loved the idea. It was so nice to go through the photos and relive the memories of the last 25 years, and even more fun to see how fashion has changed. (Look out for my post on why I'll never be a fashion blogger soon!)
As a little bonus to myself, I couldn't resist this adorable notebook. How cute is this?
I loved Tiny Prints, and I'll definitely be working with them again soon. Their service is amazing, and shipping is really fast too. The website said it would take 8 days, but my notebook got here in three!

Do you like to do things with your photos- apart from Instagram-ing them? (Yes, that is now a word). I love making prints and putting them up on my wall- I feel like there's a special quality that just can't be captured through digital images alone!

xo, Hima

  4. Ah, you did such a great job on the anniversary cards and notebooks! I use Shutterfly all the time but haven't tried out Tiny Prints because custom stuff scares me...I'm not very good at that. But...maybe I'll try it thanks to you. Maybe. :) Thanks for linking up to Manic Monday again!
