3 Great Ideas for Celebrating Creative Romance Month!

heart-159638_150Did you know that February is Creative Romance Month? Well, even if you didn’t, don’t worry — there is still one week left of February during which you can participate in this month-long celebration of love! Who knew that all of February could be like an extension of Valentine’s Day? If you have a special someone, here are great ideas for showing him or her you care by doing sweet things to celebrate your love during this last week of Creative Romance Month!

1. Make a Digital Photo Collage or Scrapbook of Your Sweetheart and You Together

With the new, FREE iPhone app Followlife, available on the iTunes App Store, you can make beautiful photo art collages of you and your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife together — right from all the photos you have on your iPhone! Then you can easily email your creation to him or her, or share it on Facebook or Twitter, so that you can both enjoy it! It’s super fun and easy! All you do is add several photos to a collage (or you can even decorate just one photo), add beautiful digital background paper, stickers, effects, sweet words, and anything else you choose, save it, and share it! You can also create an entire scrapbook (because you probably have enough photos of you with your loved one to fill several collage pages!). Each page of your scrapbook could represent a different theme or a different fun time in your relationship, such as each of the four seasons, various holidays, your vacations, and more! And, in the Followlife store within the app, you even have the option of having your gorgeous photo art made into gifts such as mugs that you can enjoy all day long!

2. Check Out a Museum in Your City Together

Is there a museum in your town, or nearby, that you love and haven’t visited in awhile? Going to a museum can make for a fun, romantic date with your loved one. It’s a quiet, calm environment in which you can walk hand in hand, and you can look at beautiful art or cool historical artifacts. Grab some lunch or dinner at your favorite restaurant afterward to make it a completely fun day!

3. Enjoy Your Photographs Together

If you have been together for a long time, you likely have a lot of great photos of the two of you together. If you are married, you certainly have a beautiful wedding album filled with precious photographs of your special day! Celebrate the history of your love and your time together by taking some time to sit down together and admire your photos from throughout the years. Consider adding some of them to scrapbooks (or digital scrapbooks, like Followlife on your iPhone!) or possibly framing some of them and placing them in your home or offices. Surround yourself with all of your beautiful memories in photographs!

However you choose to celebrate Creative Romance Month, enjoy this special time with your loved one!

4 Fun, Free Ideas for Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day!

kids-around-globe-holding-hands-15667159February 17 is National Random Acts of Kindness Day. Here are ideas of FREE random acts of kindness that you can do for your family, friends, and community members to celebrate this important day!

1. Make a photo collage or scrapbook of happy times with your friends and family!

You can make beautiful photo art collages and scrapbooks on your iPhone with the fun, free app FollowLife! Simply add photos from your phone, organize and arrange them in an attractive way, add fun stickers, backgrounds, text, and effects, and share them with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! It is uplifting for people to have happy photos on their phones (and all around them!) so this is a great way to do something nice for your loved ones!

2. Write notes to people letting them know you appreciate them!

You know the clerk at the grocery store, your mail carrier, or a neighbor who always brightens your day and helps to make your day easier? This is a great time to write a quick note thanking those people for their help and friendship. Our lives often get so busy that we forget to show thanks and appreciation to everyone who does nice things for us, whether those people are family, friends, or acquaintances. People thrive on appreciation, and writing people notes of thanks is a great way to show them you care!

3. Smile at people!

It’s tough seeing people rushing around every day with unfriendly expressions. While you don’t need to grin at everyone you see, making the effort to smile at the people you encounter with whom you make eye contact can make the world a softer, kinder place to be. In some cases, yours may be the only smile a person sees that day, and it can make the difference between someone having a tough day, or having a more optimistic outlook.

4. Do something extra for a family member at home!

Most of us probably feel like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything we need to do. Consider making some time on Monday to do a load of laundry for a family member, cook a meal, clean an area of your house, or do something else to make your family’s day easier.

Let us know your great ideas for random acts of kindness in the comments, and have a fantastic day!

Try These 5 Fun Family Photo Ideas!

Capture the joy of your family's laughter in photos!

Capture the joy of your family’s laughter in photos!

You can never have too many family photos! They make beautiful, heartwarming additions to the walls of your home, your computer, wallet, and phone. Here are some fantastic family picture ideas to breathe new life into your traditional photograph poses!

Outdoors

The best lighting you can have for a photo is nature’s lighting: the sun! When you take your photo at a location outside, you can enjoy the benefits of having the natural sunlight enhance your picture. In addition, you can choose from many different kinds of outdoor environments that suit your preferences and your mood. Many families choose parks and big open spaces so that they have the natural beauty of the trees, grass, flowers, and sky in the background.

In Action Doing Something You Love

Another fun idea for your family photo is to have your family photographed in action doing something you love to do together! This is a great way to add your personalized touch to your photo, and to share your interest and increase closeness with your family and friends to whom you send the picture. Choose any activity that your family loves to participate in together, such as bowling, playing video games, cooking, or playing musical instruments, and capture a candid moment of you and your family enjoying that time together!

In Your Home

For many of us, our homes are our favorite place to be. We also spend large amounts of time decorating and beautifying our homes. If your home is your favorite place in the world to be, it makes sense to take your family photo there! Choose a spot in your house that has good lighting (near windows can be preferable) and consider featuring items in the background that you cherish, so that you have some special things in your photo for posterity.

At a Favorite Location

Similar to the idea above of photographing your family in action doing something you love to do is to photograph yourselves at one of your favorite locations. Most people have a few favorite places to which they love to go – why not include that place in your next family photo? Consider taking your family photo at one of your favorite sports stadiums, a golf course, a movie theater, your favorite vacation destination, or wherever your favorite place is!

Laughing

Laughter is contagious, as are the emotions that correspond with laughter: joy, delight, and happiness. When we see pictures of people laughing, it makes us happy, and we feel like giggling as well! A great way to infuse more joy into your life and the lives of your family and friends is to capture that magical, beautiful moment of you and your family laughing together, save it, share it, display it, and scrapbook it!

Many of us take and store most of our photos on our iPhones. A great way to organize all of your great family photos on your phone is with the FREE FollowLife app on the App Store in iTunes!
