Afternoon tea

English tea traditional cucmber sandwhichIt’s a funny thing, our family is a bit obsessed with tea time. I think it must come from our ancestors, most of which hale from areas where an afternoon tea is taken. Of course, since we live in the states and not in England, we have to replicate our own afternoon tea. These are the traditional sandwiches served at tea.

Open face:

  • Whipped cream cheese with thinly sliced cucumber
  • Chicken salad

Sandwhich style:

  • Whipped cream cheese with thinly sliced cucumber and shredded salmon
  • White cheese with chutney spread (mango chutney is the traditional style)

Have you ever attended an English tea? We have always done our own at home, but I hear that The Grand America in Salt Lake City does an amazing afternoon tea if you are looking to attend one.

Introducing Party Box from Modify Ink

PartyBox, Where Parties are a Piece of Cake

We are all so busy, but that doesn’t mean we want our parties to look thrown together at the last minute! Luckily there is PartyBox, Where Parties are a Piece of Cake. Now your party can look like you spent tons of time, without you actually having to spend tons of time.

I haven’t seen one in person, but they sure sound fun! Learn more here.

What I like most about the idea is that it can really take the pressure off the planning so there is more time to just enjoy the company! :)

Print them or lose them

Raise of hands if you remember floppy discs? What about Zip Drives? Anyone out there have a way to access files on either of those? What would happen to your photos if someday in the future jump drives were obsolete? Or if the cloud went away?

It’s easy in this digital age to forget that things change quickly, and with that, there is a real possibility of losing your favorite photos. Even one wicked hard drive crash could see precious files lost. Luckily there is a way to save your photos. And it’s the same thing we have been doing all of our lives, though the technology is different. Print them out!

I was looking for a fun and easy way to print my photos when I came across the this printer . I got very excited about it, bought it, and have loved using it ever since. What’s cool about this particular printer is that it is made to print right from your phone (via a free app)!


The prints are little, but amazing in color and sharpness. The printer uses ZINK Paper, which means there is no ink to worry about. This isn’t a mini ink jet printer, this is creating a true photo print. It is a very cool little gadget.

Of course, if you don’t want to print them yourself there are a lot of other options. You can get photos printed online; you can even get 50 Free Shutterfly Prints here. I like all the options at Shutterfly for things beyond just prints too, you can make a lot of fun gifts.

Another place that I like is Persnickety Prints because they use the true photo printing technology like my little printer. They also have some fun options for those of us who love Instagram! Just order online and they send your photos right to your home.

No matter how you choose to do it, just be sure you do something. You don’t want to lose your favorite photos just because technology changes!
