Frazzled By the Holiday!

DSC01614.JPGpIf you feel stressed out due to the holidays try to do less.  You know it really is OK to say no to some of the activities as all are not equal.  If you are having trouble deciding, make a list and see which ones are important to your family especially the children.  If there are not to many in your family you could each pick one event and all attend.  Parents be sure to set aside one event you will really enjoy and do this one together without the children.  Don’t forget to keep the real meaning of Christmas in all your activities!

Have a wonderful Christmas season!  You are the reason for the season!

Photo Books make a great gift.  It is to late to order for a Christmas gift, but check out all the other special occasions there are to give this wonderful gift!

Don’t miss … Special Graduation Discount …

Graduation 2018 is almost here!

Free Graduation Cap Clip Art Pictures - Clipartix

Today is a day of “gratitude”.  I’m so thankful for my God, my family and friends and my clients, each and everyone of you are special to me.  As we go through life and in the end this is all that really matter.  I’m so blessed.  What got me to thinking about this is; my nephew is going to see his adopted sister for the first time in three years and he is so excited. As we were talking about it, he said to me, “I’m going to take lots of pictures so you can make me one of our books.” I’ve made him a couple so that he can keep people close to him that are special and he loves the books even though he is 18 years old.

I’m telling you this because don’t discount the fact that when your children go off to college, they would love to take their friends and family with them. This is a wonderful way to do that.  These photo books are great for them to have handy if they get a little lonesome.

Graduation Offer>>>>>>> My standard book is $95.00 for 20 pages (10 front and back). THE FIRST 3 CLIENTS TO ORDER A BOOK WILL GET THE SAME STANDARD BOOK FOR $85.00………..SAVE $10.00. And you will have a great graduation gift for your love one.  Be the first and get your discount.  Contact me  Aleene Embry…..806-790-7001  Be sure to share this information with your friends and family.  Check out website   photobookdesigns.com 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cybercriminals and Strong Passwords

clip artTechnology is in our lives to stay and so are the cyber criminals.  I try to keep up to date on as much of technology as I can so I read articles on the Kim Komando website.  Today she had an article on strong passwords, and you might be surprised by what she had to say.  Have you heard of “Passphrases”?  They are actually better at keeping you secure.  It really makes a lot of sense.  Read More

Photo Book Designs are digital books, therefore I’m on my computer all the time.  So guess who will be changing to “passphrases”.  Hope you enjoy the article.

Traveling….check this out

I was doing some research today and came across this article.  What an interesting concept.  As we are taking our summer vacations and snapping those pictures (to make a photo book) we can also think of others.  Since most of us don’t own a hotel, why not take an extra plastic bag and every time we leave a hotel we take the soap that we have opened bring it home.  Then send it off to these people for recycle.  What a way to help people and our environment!  I hope you will read the entire article, it is very informative.  Happy Summer….and don’t forget to take lots of pictures, make a digital photo book when you get home, and share it.  If you don’t want to do the work to make a photo book then just contact me.  www.photobookdesigns.com

All your used hotel soap gets melted down here and sent to 3rd world countries
By Marianna Kheyfets

Soap

Have you ever wondered where hotel soap goes after you use it once? Most people would assume it gets tossed in the trash and never give it a second thought. Well, Shawn Seipler isn’t most people. This very random question led him to become one of the biggest global hygiene entrepreneurs in the world.

I did some research and figured out that we are throwing away a million bars of soap every single day out of hotels across the U.S.
