Thursday’s three…. USB heaven!

I take so many photos! It’s crazy. I’d say on average I upload 50 photos every couple of days onto my computer. I don’t keep all of them… but I do keep most of them! Now I have so many photos I’m starting to get concerned about storage space on my computer. I have about 6 USB drives each with about 2 GB space on them. Well, they’re already full!

I had to laugh the other day because while cleaning my garage this week I found a 64 MB USB. That would barely hold a day of photos for me!

I am sooooo happy that Mike and I decided to splurge and buy a mass storage drive on Amazon! I’m so excited… That is why it has inspired this weeks Thursday’s Three:

1) The Seagate mass storage drive. This baby can hold 500 GB! I cannot wait for this to come in the mail! I found mine on Amazon. I wonder how long I can make it last….

2) Is 500 GB a little too much for you? How about 4 GB drive in a clothespin? Just clip it on your clothes and it will always be with you! AkiPat has quite a variety in their Etsy shop. Check them out!

3) Or, if you just need a small amount of storage space this cute russian doll USB from Fred Flare is so cute!

Meanwhile at the Paper Mama home….

I am busy trying to fill up more space on my computer with attempted photos of my baby and me. 🙂

It was getting a little hard to take any photos because Ruari kept kicking her legs and jumping. 🙂


{This will have to do. :)}

How many photos are all of you taking each day?
(by the way… I took 40 photos to get these 3)

    haha, I'm glad that I'm not the only mom who will quite literally take 100 pictures of my kids just to get one or two good shots.Unfortunatly I can't even bring myself to get rid of that bad shots so there's like 3000+ pics on my computer…. yeah, I need one of those USB's

    I LOVE the USB storage. How sweet! Speaking of sweet… your baby is just darling. I think I asked before, but are you a Gilmore Girls fan? Lorelai and Rory are forever favorite characters in my mind… so I love her name 🙂

    Aww, yeah. I know about bouncy/moving-around babies/toddlers. Oh yes. It's hard to take pictures of them. Hehe!Wow, girl. Today I uploaded around 150 in all, from yesterday and today–soup making, etc. Wow. A few months ago I was thinking of an external hard drive, maybe even a good one I'll use for a long time-an investment, like a big one…$100 or so, I'd be willing to spend if I could clear out some space on my laptop (still have like 72GB free, but still) and it'd be good. :)So yes…I take about 5o-ish a day? Less mostly, depending on if I'm painting, cooking, etc. Cute picture of you and Ruari!!

    This is too funny! We also just got our hard drive from Best Buy the other day! I thought my poor computer was going to explode from all the picture uploads I was doing:) The pics of you and your daughter are too cute:) Isn't it funny how we end up taking pics of everyone else but us?!?! I swear I have about 5 pictures that I'm in out of the thousands on my computer!

    I LOVE that she's making strong eye contact with the camera in picture 1 & 3. Let's see – according to my Windows Live Photo Gallery, I took over 1400 pictures in 2009. That's roughly 118 pics/month or 30 a week. And that's only the ones that survived the delete button. Congrats on your new storage! Happy Snapping – you've got lots of room to fill!
