A Unique Snapshot in Time

A Unique Snapshot in Time

Like a lot of parents, I tried to keep up with printed photo albums, baby books, and milestone records, but life just ended up getting in the way. All of a sudden I had 6 years of my kids’ lives to catch up on, and no time to put the effort in that was required. Little Abstract, the wonderful creation of artist Jeremy Brown allows kids to express themselves on a keepsake that will last forever.

How to Instagram Like a Boss!

It all started when my Mother asked me if I knew about little Pixie Curtis, PR Queen Roxy Jacenko's little girl. My answer was nuh. I wasn't new to Instagram, but I definitely wasn't using it, or even considered using it for professional purposes.
