Fun Photo Bookmarks

I've been hit by some kind of delayed nesting fairy this past week and have been organising, sorting and clearing clutter. One of the things that has to go now is a box of photographs my daughter loves to scatter around the house. I've been scouring the web for ideas on what to do with leftover photographs that never made it into the photo albums, and I love the idea of photo bookmarks. Not a bad idea for a crafty Fathersday for a dad who reads either!

Photo Family Time Frame Clock £11.99 @ Amazon

Photo Family Time Frame Clock £11.99 @ Amazon

There’s 62% off the coloured and silver Photo Family Time Frame Clock at Amazon, bringing them to a much  more reasonable £11.25. (There’s also a black frame with 33% off, a £10 saving, making it £19.99.)

My hubby won't let me buy a  Photo Family Time Frame Clock, so Emma and I have come up with a plan: she's going to spring for a quicky internet divorce, and her and I will set up house together, somewhere where we can have one of these on the wall.   Such is the banter in PlayPennies HQ today (and how rumours start!)

Made up of 12 photo frames in either black, silver or multi-coloured, there are four frames of 4x6.5 cm and 8 frames of 4x4cm.  All in it’s  quite large, and would make a lovely centrepiece above the fireplace – or a random wall if you don’t have a fireplace. I think the colourful one would be a beautiful addition to a child’s room too. One of the reviewers actually had their children hold numbers up to their faces and took pictures, so that the clock now has numbers for telling the time, which I thought was a brilliant idea.

The Photo Family Time Frame Clock has 131 5-star reviews on Amazon, a few inbetween and only six 1-star reviews.  Complaints are about the clock being noisy, the pictures being small and the face having branding on, despite not showing on the pictures. It doesn’t seem to be a problem for everyone though. Most absolutely love it.

As, I’m sure, shall Emma and I!

Baby Freebies: Free Photo Book Every Month @ Hot Prints

Baby Freebies: Free Photo Book Every Month @ Hot PrintsAs a photographer I know how expensive it is to keep printing photos and with parents, in-laws and grandparents often wanting copies too, costs can spiral.

Yes you read that right but I'll say it again just so you can make sure - get a FREE photo book EVERY month!  Not only that but you won't pay postage or packaging on this freebie either.

HotBooks photo books are 20cm wide by 25cm (or about 8" by 10"), there are 16 pages including the covers and all pages are printed on 160gsm paper using Hewlett Packard Indigo printers which are excellent and offer a very high quality finish.

Each month's free credit is available at 10am GMT on the first of each month and can currently be shipped to addresses in the UK, USA and Canada - they can however, be ordered from anywhere in the world.

Make sure you untick the 'I want to pay for this order' box - this does mean that your photobook will come with advert inserts in the middle that you can remove.

And that's really all there is to it!  The tricky part will be deciding which photos of  your babies to have printed each month!

Thanks to bovysbabe over at HUKD!
