Where to get your instagram photos printed + other stuff

Happy Friday! Friday’s are almost my favourite day of the week… because I’ve still got the whole weekend ahead of me. I love that.

Last night Ma, Lacey and I headed into the City to look for a mother-of-the-bride outfit. Well, we only looked at one place and it was a designer factory sale. I’ve never been to one of those before, but boy… women are willing to change clothes in the middle of nowhere {ie right in front of me, in the middle of the store} in order to score a bargain.

Anywho! On Monday I shared a few pics and one was of my instagram pics that I got printed. A few of you asked where they were from, and I kinda forgot to share that detail. Sorry about that! There are a few places that print them, but none ship to Australia so I used Printstagram. For $12 you get 48 photos printed and the process is really easy. I did it all from my iPhone. I think I’m going to make a little book for Lacey next, perhaps even get her to shoot the photos herself.

Are you on instagram? My username is fatmumslim {or see here on webstagram}. Let me know if you are in the comments and I’ll follow you.

Also a few of you asked where I got the butterfly plate from that I used in the photos for the Impossible Lemon Pie.

I bought it last weekend from Bed, Bath and Table. I deliberated over it because we’re trying to be smart with our money and it was $14.95. I know, not much… but all these things add up I’ve learned.

I took a walk and then was still in love with it so came back and got it. When I brought it home I carefully soaked it in some water to get the price sticker off the back. When I pulled it out. It was chipped. I was devastated. Heartbroken even.

Oh well. That’ll teach me. Teach me what? I don’t know. But I’m sure there’s a life lesson in there somewhere.

Are you as glad as me that it’s Friday? I only just learned that it’s a long weekend in Australia {Sydney at least} next weekend. I am sooooo looking forward to that.

This weekend we’ve got Yum Cha with friends, Lil Sis is coming up with my soon-to-be brother-in-law and I think we’ll be working on wedding stuff.

What are your weekend plans?

    I've got a super long weekend. I'm taking next week off work. Apart from giving my garden an overhaul I think I'll check out instagram and work out how to use it.

    I loaded it ages ago and still haven't worked it out :)

    I am obsessed with instagram at the moment, just blogged about it infact you can check it out here: http://edanrose.blogspot.com

    My user name is MegKay77. Here is a question for you too, When I first signed up to twitter, facebook, blogging, started a business, I wasn't really thinking about it as an overall brand – but now that I want to “break into” the blogging world, do you think it is important to have everything the same so that you are easily recognised? And if so should I change some of my user names? Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Love that plate! Didn't really think about it in your original post that showed the plate, but now seeing it again… Hmm… Trip to the shops to see if my BB & T have it I think!

    Oh I love those little photo books. Well definitely go check it out. Also when I get a moment I am going to read your latest Facebook post as I need a quick update on the new changes. Love the butterfly plate too xx

    Ooh, cute! I might have to get these done!

    Are they the mini prints you got done? What sort of size are the photo bits?

    That is a gorgeous plate and I too would be so gutted to see it chipped. Hey, maybe it's got character now? At least a story to tell.

    Thanks again for the geek links, I love this. I have been trying to find out how to get on instagram without an iphone/ipad etc. I'm an android lover/user so I don't get to play along with instagram right now. I just tried the webstagram site, I'm hoping I'll be able to follow people there but it's down right now.
