I am as addicted to Instagram as much the next person – the rapidly diminishing storage on my phone is clear evidence of that. And now that I’m constantly snapping pics of Carter, it’s only getting worse. But when I scroll back through my photo stream, it’s so hard to click delete! There are so many snaps that I love – they bring up great memories, mark special trips and on occasion are just pretty dang good-looking {thank you VSCO filters!}. So when Art.com asked if I’d be interested in testing out their new SwitchArt™ Magnetic Frames & Prints and their Photos to Art™ feature – It lets you make art prints out of the pics on your phone – I gladly accepted!

I decided to have some of my favorite Insta snaps from our summer adventures printed and truthfully, I was blown away by the results. I seriously didn’t think they’d turn out this good! My pics of our days in Dry Creek, exploring farmer’s markets and stunning San Francisco restaurants were printed at an impressive 18″ x 18″ scale and looked stunning – if I do say so myself! I tested out prints in our kitchen, on our gallery wall and in our master bedroom/nursery.

There is so much more to SwitchArt™ than printing pics from your phone.  It will change the way you decorate with photos – because they’re actually magnetic prints that easily roll on and off a single frame. What does that mean in practical terms? You can change out your pics at any time! The magnetic photo prints roll on and peel off easily so you can change your wall art whenever the mood strikes.

I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend about how the way we take photos today will completely change the way our kids interact with memories. We snap thousands of pics that just disappear into the cloud. Now that I’m a mom, I think about how kids are going to grow up without photo albums to flip through. Yet it’s by looking at photos that kids create and retain early childhood memories. Pictures are how we tell stories about our families. So it’s never felt more important to take the time to print your pictures and cherish your family’s stories.

If you want to test this out, download the SwitchArt™ App for iPhone here . You can purchase a pack of photo prints to use over time or you can be a lucky winner! You have the opportunity to win your own SwitchArt Frame and Prints by participating in my Instagram giveaway. Upload any of your personal photos and tag @Apartment34 and use the #SwitchArtStyle and you will have the chance to turn any of your photos into SwitchArt! I’ll be choosing a winner at 6:00 PM PST on Sunday, October 25.

I see a lot of Carter pics on our walls in the future!
