I am tidying up my workroom to make space for a video studio and some sewing space. While I was moving and sorting papers and supplies, I discovered my Project Life (PL) album from Becky Higgins.
The album has a lot of Silver and Miranda’s baby photos, as well as other memories. It brought home to me why printed photos matter and why, no matter how lazy we are, we need to print off a few while our cats are alive, happy and healthy.
Check out this precious photo.
When I can get a proper scan the quality will improve but, for now, this is the best I can do. A photo of a photo.
A Dash Kitten Memory
This snapshot was in my Project Life album safe and snug in a plastic sleeve. It shows a tiny Silver Kitten and a protective Dash Kitten sat looking out into the rainy weather. What is Dash saying to Silver? I don’t know but the picture catches your heart and I hope to scan in a sufficiently high-resolution image to make a canvas print when my printer starts working again
Unfortunately, the PL company Becky Higgins LLC doesn’t ship overseas and are difficult to find in shops. So, I will keep going with my 12 x 12 plastic sheets until they run out, now I have found the album again. I can print out photos and preserve some precious and wonderful memories.
I checked on the PL site and the App seems to be more popular but sorry, for me, if the power goes you don’t have the memory anymore, as I say here. A printed memory is priceless. Even one 6 x 4-inch photo means so much.
If I had not printed off a copy of this I might have lost it and never seen this wonderful image again and that is a terrible thought. As it is, it gives me more determination to keep going with the blog – because Dash matters now more than ever. This is why printed photos matter.
Even one, just like this.
