Raise your hand if you have approximately 12,589 photos on your phone.

Looking for ways to display your photos instead of endlessly scrolling your camera roll? And you want to do something with them besides just backing them up to the Cloud. Am I right?

The advent of digital photography and ever-improving camera phones has made documenting your life SUPER EASY. You can snap, snap, snap, and have that memory saved. However, we also fall prey to only having photos on our phones. And it becomes an endless catalog of photos.

I’ve found a couple of amazing options to get your photos off your phone and into your hands or onto your walls.

fun ways to display your photos Mixtiles


I recently discovered Mixtiles (thanks, Instagram ads!), and I’m so glad the ads were served to me. Since the birth of my second child, my daughter, I was looking for more ways to get photos off of my phone and display them in my home.

Mixtiles offers framed, ready-to-hang 8×8 prints for your walls. You can upload directly from your phone and order through their app. I was especially impressed with how quickly they shipped and that Mixtiles updated me regularly with the status of the order.

When the Mixtiles arrived, they were well packaged and ready to hang on the wall, right out of the box. They take all the typical roadblocks to wall art prints out of the equation. As soon as I received my Mixtiles, I hung them up. I love looking at the photos of our family every day.

Mixtiles offers promos through their app and emails. Once you order them, you’ll be pining for more. I know I am!
