Link Love: Making and Keeping Memories

I came across several things today that I want to share. The links are all more or less memory  and childhood related.


  • Create Beautiful Photos with a Bokeh @Shutterfly - Bokeh are (is?) the look of photos with a short depth of field - the ones with the focus on a single main object and the rest of the photo is out of focus. I love this look, and get lucky with it occasionally. This article explains how to get the look using your camera settings (which I have yet to really figure out).
  • Interview with Sharon Lovejoy @EarthMama101 - The giveaway on this post is over, but the interview with Sharon Lovejoy is well worth reading. I love the part about "accelerated childhood."
  • Your Life, Hour by Hour by Elizabeth Dillow @Ella Publishing - Dillow writes about a project she did 7 years ago documenting a single day of her early mamahood. I have been meaning to do this for years. My life changes so much each year - with a young one, even month by month. What a worthwhile project for documenting memories.
  • Make a Daily Outfit Chooser @Photojojo - Just for FUN! How to take photos of your outfits and make a flip book to decide what to wear. The article includes several options for ways to use this idea. I think it would be fun to take photos of your child in each dress-up outfit, and then make a book to mix and match the options. (Although, with my daughter, the options would already be mixed and matched!)

What have you read lately that inspired you?

Thanks for posting this list! I was very excited to see that Elizabeth Dillow's article at Ella Publishing was posted today -- because my Hour-by-Hour layout is included! It's the first time I've had a layout "published" so to speak. :)
