Gift Ideas to Get to the Family Quick

Every year I plan to get an early start to my holiday shopping and every year I find myself in a scramble.

My Style. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

I love to take pictures when I’m on vacation or enjoying the holidays with my family. But when I do take them I want to show them and share them right away. Digital pictures are great but real pictures in your hand are ones I can carry around in my wallet, give to friends, and post in my room. […]
