Instagram Amor – The best tip ever

The blue horse — El caballo azul

Here are some of my favorite Instagrams again from long ago and recently, all mixed together. 
I also wanted to give you a tip I discovered that I think is the best! When I publish my Instagrams, I also include the option to send by email and I send them to my mom and dad, since they don’t have smart phones and aren’t on instagrams but they LOVE to see my updates and the kids, they get each of my photos by email! They can reply to my e-mail if they want to and it will be delivered back to me 🙂 I am loving this because they are so happy receiving one more bit of our lives, I recommend it if your parents are far or they don’t have Instagram! Enjoy!

– E S P A Ñ O L –
Aquí les traigo mis Instagrams favoritos, los de hace poquito y los desde hace tiempo mezclados juntos.
También les quiero dar un tip que descubrí y me parece es muy chévere! Cuando publico mis Instagrams tmbién uso la opción de mandarlas por e-mail específicamente a mi mamá y a mi papá. Ellos no usan Instagram pero les ENCANTA ver mis fotos y así se actualizan de mi vida y la de los niños directo a su correo! Me pueden responder al mismo email si quieren y me llega directo a mi 🙂 Me está gustando mucho porque se que ellos han estado muy contentos de ver las fotos todos los días, se lo recomiendo mucho si viven lejos de sus papás o si ellos no tienen Instagram!

    love this tip and i agree – i have all the grandparents on "speed email" for instagram. Also, just recently got into "postagram" as well which sends them a post card version of the special ones, and then they can punch out the photo to keep after. Kind of neat and my own grandmother always appreciates a photo on paper rather than on screen.

      What a great idea the postcard! I've been meaning to try it, so I will do that! Too bad I can't send it to my day cause the mail in Venezuela is terrible but I can send it to my mom! and I like how you call it "speed mail" 🙂

      Hi Ana! These collages I did in Photoshop but if you want to do them on the phone I have used Framestastic and Diptic Apps, they are great!!
