Awesome Sponsor: Platinum Pix!

I don't know about you guys, but this is pretty much how my photos are "organized":

Not exactly the best organizational system, I know. (And yes, that is my actual dresser drawer, if you can't tell by the Dixie and Tallulah pics!)

You may have noticed the button over in the sidebar that means my blog has a new sponsor! Platinum Pix is a company that specializes in photo services including photography, repair and archiving. If your photo collection looks like mine, you can hand it over to them to be scanned and put on a dvd, cd, or usb drive. You can even order an accompanying book that has thumbnails of all the photos to make it easy to find what you're looking for.

Jennifer of Platinum Pix and I went to school together in Southwest Missouri, so the devastation of the tornado in Joplin recently really hit home. I hadn't really thought about it at first, but backing up your photos on cd or dvd and putting a copy somewhere safe is a great idea if you live anywhere that gets hit by tornadoes or hurricanes every year! Most of us have our more recent photos on Flickr or Facebook, but what about those pictures from your 5th birthday party or high school graduation? (Platinum Pixs is currently offering FREE photo scanning and restoration to natural disaster victims! You can read about it here.)

Platinum Pix can also make your photos into all sorts of cool gifts, including mouse pads, puzzles, magnets and ornaments. They even do photo restoration, so if you have old photos that have scratches or tears, or have just faded over time, they can carefully edit them to make them look new again.

If you live in the Denver, Colorado area, you can also hire them for wedding photography, engagement photo sessions, senior portraits, family portraits, or event photography!

You can find Platinum Pix on Facebook, Twitter, Etsy and of course, their website!
