Good Evening Everyone,
No project today because I've been out visiting my wee great-niece, Arihanna, before I go off on holiday ... we just had to see her before we go away :)
And she is growing fast now ... she is a tiny six months old and still wearing clothes intended for age 3 months. You can just about spot one of her two teeth ... she loves showing them off when asked :) Her mum, Louise, tells me that she loves the taste of toothpaste!
Her favourite toy is her toes ... and happily showed her great-aunt just how it's done. Don't you wish you could still do that :))
Another reason for going out today was to visit Tesco supermarket to test out the photo printing machine there.
Ordinarily, I would print out any photos I want for scrapping from my Epsom printer but the EM suggested that I might find it quicker, easier and even more cost effective if I took my SD Card to the supermarket and had them developed there.
To test out his theory I copied over 60 images from the computer to my camera, and I mixed it up a bit with some shots taken using this camera, some with my old camera, some scanned photos (a couple black & white) and some that I had cropped. I chose to print all of them out at 6"x4"
The printing machine did an excellent job in a fraction of the time it would have taken me - the print quality is very good although some of the older and scanned originals were not perfect - can't expect the machine to be able to do anything about that :) The cost wasn't too bad either - £20 for 67 photos - the extra 7 were those taken of Arihanna today ... that is approximately 30p per print. Apparently, if there had been 100 or more photographs the cost per print would have been half that at 15p - an incredible saving.
On the whole, I'm very pleased with the test and, though it pains to me to write this, the EM is right :))
Now all I have to do is get scrapping!
The EM has just brewed so I'm off to have a cuppa, then I might just do a bit of crafting :)
I hope you are all well and that, despite the horrible rain - oh yes, we are getting it here too now - you have had a good day.
