Are you ready to think about kick-starting an important organizing project in a very different way?
Join me at a Girls Night Out – Photo Organizing Party Edition!
Do any of these sound like you?
- “I have piles and boxes and bags full of family photos I’ve never dealt with, and I have no idea where to start”
- “If something happened to my home and my photos were damaged, I don’t have another copy anywhere of my most important photos”
- “My phone is so full of photos that I can’t do anything else with it, but I don’t know what to do with all these photos
- “I was going to scrapbook. I bought scrapbooking things. I even started a few…. but never finished. I’d still like to, someday…”
- “I have digital photos everywhere – my phone, my tablet, my computer, my old computer, my other old computer, a few cloud services, a thumb drive, some memory cards that may even still be in a camera somewhere, a DVD or two… I don’t actually have one spot where things live, and I can’t find what I want when I want it.”
- “We have some amazing photos I’d love to get framed and display. I just never got around to it…”
- “My photos are in okay shape. It’s my PARENTS’ photos which keep me up at night! I just don’t know who’s in these photos, and I wish I knew more so that I know what to do with them.”
- “I add more and more images to my phone or camera every day, and I think it’s only going to grow from here.”
- Figure out what you have
- Make a plan for getting it in order
- Start to take action and make progress
- Face your fears about photo organizing
- Get comfortable taking this on at home by yourself
- and Have some fun in a nonjudgmental setting
We will talk about both printed photos and digital photos — and how you can develop the plan that works for you to decide what to keep, and how to keep it so that you can best enjoy and preserve the memories of your life.
What to expect at the party:
We’re going to do some talking, some learning, some sharing, and most importantly, some actual organizing! We’ll spend 90 minutes together, so you’re DEFINITELY going to get stuff done!
- We’re going to talk about the kinds of photos you have, what’s important to YOU and why… and how that might help you determine what you might let go of
- We’ll discuss what YOUR goals are. We all say “I need to get these organized” but what does that really mean to YOU? What’s your end game?
- We’ll talk about how to set up a PLAN and a PROCESS to actually organize your printed photos and your digital photos to YOUR goals, and get you comfortable doing it on your own
- We’ll talk about technology… a bit. This isn’t about getting you out of your technological comfort zone… I’m not a tech expert, but I can give you some good resources on how to take YOUR particular tech set up to the next level.
- We’ll talk about the best way for you to SHARE and ENJOY your photo collection, rather than just fear it and avoid it!
- Finally, we’ll actually DO some photo organizing, and you’ll have begun your progress to getting your photos organized, once and for all (and you might even be inspired to host your OWN Photo Organizing Party with your family or friends to keep the magic going!)
What to bring to the party:
> If you’re looking to tackle your printed photos, bring a bag or box with you! You’ll receive your own photo organizing box at the party to help you get sorted and get your project ready for you for future work.
> If you’re looking to organize your digital photos:
- back up your phone or your computer (whichever you think you’re using for this project) before joining us
- make sure your device is fully charged
> No matter which kinds of photos you’re going to work on, bring an open attitude and a willingness to drop some of the fear at the front door, and plan to have some fun along the way!
> Cost: $20 per person, payable in person
