My Passion


One of my greatest passion is my photo album collection... I started this hobby of mine back in 1988 and from 1988 to 2000, I have a total of 26 albums...

Even though we were only allowed 8 boxes/luggages by the airline when we migrated, 1 box was designated to my albums already (I was able to bring in 14 of them)! Just can't leave all of them behind, if I have more luggage allowance I wouldn't leave a single album behind. To date, I still have about 6 more left at my parent's house.

Since we migrated (2001) I have added 10 more albums to my collection and I also started using scrapbook materials. This could be more if we didn't get a digital camera in 2002, since then most of our pictures are stored in CDs. I had to select the really nice ones when I order prints this time. And despite our tight budget I still manage to include my scrapbook materials into our budget. ",)

Last year, I started to convert my digital pictures to a home video complete with background music using Memories on TV software. Now we can just sit back and relax while we reminisce. And if you want to create an instant photo website, you can also try Memories on Web free software.

I've been a witness and have touched the holy grail of Jo's memories and I must admit they're labors of love, indeed!

Thank you for the links. Will try them out soon....more albums to come! (kahit puro digital na, print them, iba pa rin ang nahahawakan di ba?)

Vangie, the software is easy to use, all you need is to cut and paste your pictures into the program then just choose the options you want (effects and music) and then preview it! Once done, burn it to a CD and that's it!

Vanessa/Denden/Junnie, try the software, it's a great gift to send back home. I send a video album to our family and they all loved it! Parang hi-tech pa nga ang dating ko sa kanila, if they only knew that the program does everything!

Actually ginawa ko na itong negosiyo for a few friends... ",) happy naman silang lahat sa outcome.
