#Kwilting

Managing my mess of digital pictures is a source of anxiety for me. I’ve written about it before… asked for advice and gotten great suggestions… but I’ve yet to put anything into place. I have pictures all over – multiple places in the cloud, facebook, my phone, Andy’s phone, various computers. I never know where to find the picture I’m looking for.

It’s a mess, and it stresses me out.

Enter Kwilt.

Kwilt™ Logo

Kwilt is the first mobile app to automatically create a personal and complete live digital photo stream by gathering users’ digital images from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google+, Google Drive, Dropbox, DLNA Certified® servers, iPhones and iPads. Kwilt reconnects users with their personal photos – often scattered across the web – by bringing them together in one beautifully designed hyper-fast streaming media platform.

Kwilt connects to Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google+, Google Drive, Dropbox, DLNA Certified servers, and iPhones/iPads. It streams all your pictures into one place, and puts them in a – very lovely – sequence chronologically, by location, or by theme.

You can also make custom albums and share them on social media. You can even display them on your television using Airplay, Chromecase, Roku, LG or Panasonic. And, you can hide pictures you don’t want to show up, which is handy – I take pictures of lists and papers and things that I wouldn’t want to see in a Kwilt!

After connecting all my accounts to Kwilt and seeing my pictures pop up in a beautiful, organized display, I sent an email to the Kwilt team that said “This app is what I’ve been waiting for my entire life!”

Andy: Sam, can you tell me about this?

Sam: It’s a bucket list.

Andy: What does this first thing say? Superstar?

Sam: Yes, that’s what I want to be when I grow up.

Andy: And the next thing.. Star Wars 2015?

Sam: Yes, I really want to see that movie. But I’m not done with my bucket list, so I didn’t cross off “Bucket List.”

Me: Making a bucket list is on your bucket list?

Sam: That’s right.

At least he’s got a plan.

Sprucing Up My Living Room with Wayfair.com

Wayfair Homemakers

After the great bathroom transformation of 2014 (was that a bit dramatic?), I’ve been looking for ways to spruce up other areas of our house, too, without breaking the bank – or my back.

I was invited to take part in a campaign from Wayfair.com highlighting their collection of Pillows, Throws & Poufs, and I had a ball figuring out what I wanted to order to brighten up my living room.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Liora Manne Antique Medallion Square Indoor/Outdoor Pillow

Chooty & Co Monaco Breeze Beads Hassock Ottoman

Rizzy Home Cable Knit Cotton Throw

I was looking for something to brighten up this corner of my living room. It’s a bit… lacking in color.

So I ordered the WovenWorkz Marion Woven Acrylic Throw and the Chooty & Co Incogneato Beads Hassock Ottoman, and now it looks like this.

I love how it looks, and more than that, they add function. The pouf is handy to have for extra seating in our living room, and we all fight over who gets to use the throw. It’s so soft and cozy!

Wayfair has TONS of products at great prices – I encourage you to check it out! And, we’ve got a special promo code that will get you 15% off ANY pillow, pouf or throw. Just enter WFPTP15 as you check out! Happy shopping!
