Matt and I finally got smartphones in 2013. Late to the game, I know.

We started documenting the everyday moments of our lives with our phones, and often using Instagram to share those little moments with the world.

In January, I decided to try something new with all of the photos we collected during 2013. 

I heard of an intriguing company through Instagram called Artifact Uprising. Their motto is: Off Your Device. Into Your Life.

Exactly what I was looking to do with our photos! 

They are a really neat company. They are based in Colorado and use 100% recycled paper for the pages of their books. They are very progressive and eco-friendly, and are helping bring something tangible into a world where everything is digital.

The software to make the book was pretty simple to use. The only trouble I had was when I tried to rearrange the pages of the book into a different order than I had originally created them in. I think AU is working on making that process easier.

This is their Instagram Friendly Photo Book, and is 8.5×8.5 inches in size. The default is 40 pages, but I think I made ours 73 pages.

Remember, in the left photo below, when Remy fell asleep hanging over the edge of her favorite pillow? Hilarious!

I am so happy with our book, and love flipping through it to look back on 2013. 

I plan to make this a new tradition, and make one every year.
