Before visiting my in-laws in Missouri recently, I actually had a intelligent thought. I remembered that we had a little scanner we could take with us. It scans photos up to 4 x 6 inch in size. It works really well for those stacks of vintage photos that have piled up in hat or photo boxes in the closet. It will scan photos with or without a computer. Since we didn't have our computer the photos were loaded onto a memory card that I later loaded onto my computer and even saved onto a disc. You can buy one here on Amazon.
Here are a few of the fun pictures I found.
My girls at 3 and probably 4 months.
I made the little sailor dress AND the monogram pillow (for my MIL).
Okay, so that is me blowing bubbles with DD1.
This is my HH as an adorable little boy with his dog.
My MIL in her cute little flower dress.
I don't know if this was for a special occasion or not.
This is also my MIL at 14 for a piano recital. Sweet pictures, aren't they? I scanned 186 photos and there were many that I didn't scan. I took notes of who was on each photo. I'm just not sure how to keep the notes with the photos. Probably the only way is to print them off and place them into a scrapbook. I will probably edit these on Photoshop to improve quality to some degree. Hope this idea helps somebody save some precious memories!
