but all I’ve got is a photograph – diy instagram photo display

DIY Instagram Photo Display - Directions Not Included

Since digital cameras took over we have been horrendous at printing pictures. Even more so when our lives were taken over by iPhones. Tell me we are not alone?

In comes the idea of a DIY Instagram photo display. This is all over blogland already, but I finally got around to printing out some pictures … [Read more...]

That is the … [Read more...]
