I have used Walgreens photo center to order online photos, but I wasn't terrible impressed with the quality. I don't know, truly, if it was just some of the files that were low resolution, but I didn't love all those pictures. The place was convenient to where I was cropping, but unless I'm in a pinch, I don't think I'll be using Walgreens again. Their ordering site is a clumsy, too. I once did a big order (400+ photos) and it slowed the site down to a crawl. I always prepaid my order so I could just run in and grab the photos, but the workers didn't ever seem to know that I'd prepaid, and it was always a little ordeal to discover that indeed, I had paid for it already.
Yesterday, I started getting ready for a crop I'm going to this coming weekend. That's where I discovered that I hadn't scrapbooked anything since the late September photos. Then I got sidetracked working on a calendar project: I like to have a monthly calendar at my piano, and I didn't get a new one for 2013. I had picked up calendar templates that fit inside a CD case (?!) for free at a crop last year, and some sort of modern 4X6 photo frame I'd received from a student, so I got the idea to make my own 4X6 monthly calendars. It was kind of fun and quick, and I got to use up some stash that I probably wouldn't use in my scrapbooks. Here are a couple of photos:
Anyway, back to the photo printing. I hope that the pictures arrive before Saturday, although I am not terribly hopeful. If the photos don't make it in time, then I'll scrapbook my Italy trip. I just scheduled myself to go to another crop on Feb 2, so I can scrapbook those pictures then if they don't come in.
