A STICKY(GRAM) SITUATIONJanuary 2, 2014
My resolution this year came to me while I was browsing through my Instagram feed selecting pictures to turn into magnets. Just before Christmas, StickyGram gifted me one of their sheets containing nine individual magnets; a company that allows self proclaimed Instagram addicts like myself to take our picture obsession one step further by ordering various products using those very square images that capture important milestones and all the random bits in between.
It’s brilliant, really, and quite easy. The last step is perhaps the most difficult part of the entire process though... how does one begin to narrow down hundreds of their favorite snapshots to a select few? You can’t. It’s impossible! Yet somehow I managed to pick nine, rearranged them several times before ultimately refusing to change them again convincing myself that if I liked them once they arrived I would simply come back for more.
Which is exactly what I intend to do.
In person, each magnet is about the size of the picture as it appears on your phone like you plucked the image directly from your feed. As for where my wife and I put the magnets, we stuck them to the magnetic chalkboard in our kitchen. We prefer the look of bare refrigerator doors so we have a large framed chalkboard on one wall that houses random thoughts written in messy chalk script or displays Madison’s current crayon masterpiece or an appointment reminder or an ever-growing grocery list, but now it’s home to some of our favorite moments from the last year in picture form with all the luxury a magnetic back has to offer. I’m sure we’ll be adding more soon, maybe we’ll abandon the chalk writing aspect and simply use it as one large frame displaying a hundred or so sticky little pictures… at least we won’t have trouble selecting which ones to get if we just get them all.
