Staying connected NOT through social media

While I was away recently in Provence I was traveling without Kevin (horror) due to some client editing deadlines happening back in New York. It’s not often that we are apart considering all the work we create is together and we are married. Recently Canon sent us their new PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer and I thought, now THIS could be a way to make it fun being away from each other. Why? Because it’s in the cloud, which means I could (via their PIXMA Printing Solutions application) send surprise images from my iPhone to print out on photo paper throughout the day showing him what I was up to (translation: what he was missing out on).

It was a really thrilling way to keep in touch and at times felt a sweet and old fashioned, like sending postcards… instantly. When I first started sending him images I would totally ruin the surprise by texting him, “DID YOU GET MY PRINT?!!” so I had to learn to play it cool. Kevin loved waking up in the morning discovering what I had done that day that was not shared online, not on Instagram, and was just between us. When I returned from the south of France he had them all pinned up on the refrigerator and we got to walk through them all one by one, recounting all the moments he missed but could still feel a part of. What do you do to feel connected when you are away from loved ones?…

For Keeps-

Now that I’m on Instagram (frommetoyoujamie) I’ve been capturing all of summer’s fleeting little snapshots to share with the world but rather than having them lost in the digital vortex I want to actually hold these mobile polaroids of life…. 

Solution: the Polaroid Grey Label Instant Mobile Printer GL10

If you have a smart phone you can print directly from your phone, I printed my iPhone snaps from my computer and another bonus, you can print from your digital camera! Literally a digital Polaroid you can share with your friends, check a shot with an Art Director or make it your really cool business card… hmmm I just might do that.
