I am delighted to be collaborating with Cheerz again and this time to showcase their amazing personalised photo magnets.
This past week I have had a social media detox. I guess that is what you would call it; on holiday for one week and I locked my phone in the safe never to look at it again until my return home. It wasn’t planned and truthfully I didn’t feel like I needed a break so it seemed like the perfect time to take one. During my time off I realised a few things that I will elaborate on at a different time. One of those things I want to share now is the way I document our lives. As a blogger/vlogger I can usually be found with a camera in my hand, even if it is just my smart phone. Some people view this as a bad thing and I understand the importance of occasionally putting the camera down and actually getting involved. The problem I am now finding is that I have nearly 13000 photos on my laptop. In digital form. But I have less than 100 photos actually printed and on show in my home. This is intensely disproportionate and something that needs to change.
The Quest for Photos
Truthfully I love a photo. I love taking them, editing them and printing them. At the beginning of the year Hubby and I made a gallery up our lower staircase and now we are looking to start up the upper stair case. The matching frames, the faces of my loved ones and the creativity it has awoken all please me greatly. The only problem I am having is that I find traditional printed photographs a little dated. We did at one time have the shelf full of photos but I hated it. I could never quite get it to look right and the only way past this at the time was the gallery. If I am completely honest everything about shelves of family photos reminds me of my Grandmothers’ houses. Now, I love/d both my grandmothers dearly but I am not of their generation. I love the technology at my disposal, how the possibilities are endless. Photography has always been an interest of mine, sometimes the interest is keener than others. The idea of simply ordering a pack of traditional 10×6 photos seems a little dated and incredibly unimaginative.
In my previous review you can see the strips of photos that I loved. They are such a different way to presenting your art work. Now I have these amazing magnets with a selection of my favourite photos on them. How could I resist the wedding photos? The day my two angels (they are being good today so I will call them that, ask me again tomorrow) were flower girls for my oldest and bestest friend?
As always the ordering process is unbelievably easy from both the app and the website. Once the image for each magnet is chosen it can be further personalised with a selection of preset filters if you want. Then with the click of a couple of buttons the order is on its way. Honestly it is that simple!
The magnets arrive in a really pretty and surprisingly solid box meaning they are well protected in the post. Each magnet is quite thin which is a bonus for me as the toddlers are less likely to catch and knock them out of place when they pass them on display…. My “OCD” won’t cope with that. They are simple and elegant and quite frankly a great way for me to showcase my photos in physical form. They are easy to wipe clean so any grubby finger prints can be removed without ruining the photo unlike with a traditional print.
