Not a lot of people do these but I like to, I think I’ll really enjoy them in the future. They are like little snippets of my life.
My life sitting in traffic.
My life of Aurora drinking milk her special way.
My life playing games with Miles.
My husband playing for me.
Oh boy do I ever. I drive approximately 15 hours a week, just for work, hence why on my time off I spend a lot of time at home. Here is some of my Instagrammy of my commute.
This is how it came out because he mixed the sauce in a blender. Here is what it was supposed to look like.
There was a nice hotel that I relaxed in a LOT and enjoyed the hot tub nearly every single day. There was a lot of beer and in particular a beer called Lucky Beer (we all called it Buddha Beer) but alas I can’t find it anywhere in New England.
There was my cousin’s espresso machine, which I mist the most I admit. There was Gizmo, the fluffiest kitten I’ve ever seen in person.
There was my dad’s DIY way of using the GPS during the trip. There was the tower I tried to climb to see the view but you could see through the floor and that just wasn’t working for me.
There was a bit of tresspassing and some really cool roads that you don’t see where I live.
I was going to order some Instagram magnets through a site but then I thought, why can’t I make these at home myself? Guess what? It worked, so here is what I did.
Obviously you need a printer and you need to pick up a package of magnetic sheets, I got mine at Staples. Then you need to download the pictures you want from Instagram, there are programs and sites you can use to do this. I put them all in a folder on my desktop. Then I used Picasa (if you don’t have it download it, it’s free, I use it all the time just to organize photos) to make a collage with the pictures. Select the pictures you want, Create Collage, choose the grid option and save it. I found that 16 pictures works very well and they come out the right zie.
Print the pictures out on the magnetic sheet. Choose Full Page and shrink to fit. Make sure the printer settings is on Best Photo.
After printing it out we let it dry for a while, we actually waited a whole day but I doubt that’s necessary. We’ve printed things one too many times only to have them smudge so we waited extra long.
Just cut out each picture and you’re done!
