some great ideas about having prints done etc for family etc here in dpc .. are you leaving your kids printed photos

i have been doing a family calendar for the last six or seven years .. each month has about 5 or 6 photos in it ..
it is made up of our lives .. i try and get candids .. and each calendar shows pics i've taken from the year before ..
my niece and nephew live overseas and visit mostly each xmas .. i get photos of them when they are here .. but i often include photos they have taken of their special times which i'm not at .. like graduations and such ..
its a record of our family and especially the kids growing up .. and times we can look back on the remember ..
it took me over 100 hours to do last year's calendar .. just going thru finding the pics i wanted to put in .. and then editing them .. and then organizing them in snapfish ..

i usually give out the calendars on xmas day .. and every family unit gets one .. or even two .. depending ..

i use a fantastic site called snapfish .. where i upload my photos and then organize them in the months ..
it saves each project i do .. and i can 'save as' when i do the next year so i keep all the birthdays and special anniversaries in the days of the month .. the quality of the calendar is very good and the pages are quite thick ..
it has hundreds of different backgrounds and templates ... or you can organize the photos how you want .. you can add text all over the place if you want to as well ..

this year i'm slacking off .. its just such a huge job .. my daughter said .. just put in one photo for each month .. which doesnt work for me .. as each month i try and include ppl who's birthdays it is .. along with other photos .. but choosing one or two photos per month .. crazy .. to have to make such a selection .. just choosing the over a hundred photos to include is challenging ..
i might get around to it over the next few weeks .. but they wont be getting this year's calendar for 2021 till after xmas .. :(

this is one of my favourite months for this year .. my grandson was born on the 19th October 2018 .. and my niece on the 30th .. so october was dedicated to them sorta ..
