How to find Photos' actual image files in Finder on a Mac

Earlier this year, I organized and backed up all of my digital photos. It was a huge project but it felt so great to get it all done and caught up. Now, it’s a task that I do monthly. Check out my post here for my method of organizing and backing up digital images. My main computer is my MacBook Pro and I use OS …

How to organize your digital photos: A system that works!

Follow my simple step-by-step process to getting all your photos organized digitally! - Jennadesigns

I don’t know about you, but until I organized my photos a couple months ago, I had images everywhere – my computer, my phone, my spouse’s phone, in text messages and emails, not to mention on sites like Facebook and Instagram! I also had many years worth of digital images on CDs and DVDs in the closet. To say I had been paralyzed with indecision …

Conscious Ink – a fun little treat

I was playing around on Instagram the other week when I cam across an ad for Conscious Ink, a company that creates inspirational temporary tattoos. I thought it would be fun for Hannah and I to get a couple, so I ordered four – two for her and two for me. I got “compassion” and “she believes she could, so she did” and Hannah got …

Something for the weekend

Something for the weekend - Well, I had been hoping for a quiet weekend at work last weekend, but it was anything but! Here's to hoping that we can slow down this weekend! We're just planning on hanging out as a family ... my son has solo ensemble on Saturday and my parents are going to come up for a visit sometime this weekend too, so both should be nice.

DIY glass marble magnets

Today I'm going to show you how I made these super simple DIY glass marble refrigerator magnets. This is a project I've made many times over. Over the years, some of my previous ones had fallen apart or gotten lost, so I thought it was time for a new batch. These are so inexpensive to make and they make great gifts too!

A girl’s room makeover on a budget

One of the things that's long been on my to-do list is to decorate the girls' room. When we moved in August, we just kinda put all their stuff in there with plans to decorate at some point. Ella's need to move out of our master bedroom was just the kick in the pants I needed to start getting things done.

Tarot deck review: The Magical Realism tarot

I really like this deck. It's unique. It captures the beauty between photography and digital editing beautifully. She shoots and then works in Photoshop to achieve the ethereal look of the cards. A good word for them would be "dreamy."

I treated myself to another new tarot deck – the Magical Realism tarot by Cheryl Fair on Etsy. This deck was created in 2014 and published in January 2015. The Magical Realism tarot is another rather dark deck, in my opinion. (Anyone seeing a trend here?). The 78 card deck comes beautifully packaged with a black velvet drawstring storage bag for the cards and the …

Something for the weekend

Something for the weekend - Jennadesigns

Last week was a fun one with everyone getting used to Wally, our new kitty. He’s an absolute lover and always wants to snuggle, which I adore. He and the dog aren’t too fond of each other. Wally will let Kenai get about a foot away before he hisses, arches his back and takes a swing at his nose! Kenai has been pretty good about …
