Chatbooks: Photo Books for Busy Folks

I used to love scrapbooking. Well, let's be honest. My scrapbooks were not those creative creations that some talented people make. I actually used to call my scrapbooks "fancy photo albums." Heavy on pictures, with some pretty paper and stickers. The photos were the showcase, not the layouts. 
The problem? I don't have time to scrapbook. I'm currently working on a scrapbook from my trip to Disney World, back in 2012. Yup, 5 years ago. 2012PC (Pre-Little C). I don't really have the space to lay things out, nor do I have the time, even though I love taking pictures, getting them printed and then putting them in albums. 
I do post pictures of my family adventures on Instagram and Facebook all the time. It's kind of become a digital photo album of sorts, but I like the idea of having a physical book on the shelf though.

I recently found a solution! It's as easy as posting online, but you also get a book for the shelf! It's called Chatbooks. Have you heard of this? They offer different options, but the best is the ability to connect your Facebook or Instragram feed to your Chatbook account, so it automatically updates your Chatbook. You can choose your cover photo and include the date and caption from each post too. Then, you can open your Chatbooks app, make any changes to the order that you want, and exclude any pictures you don't want. This is great if you make business posts or post funny pictures you probably don't want in a family album. 

If you choose to do one of these linked series, once the book fills with 60 pictures, it will automatically charge your credit card and send it to you in the mail.

Of course, I just set up my account a month ago, so I have LOTS of pictures I want in books. That's why I love the series option. I set my account up to send me one book a month from Instagram. These are hard covered books, which cost a few extra dollars. My first book arrived last month and my next one is on the way. I can't wait to have a cute little line of books on my shelf. 

I just set up my Facebook series and decided to opt for the softcover book, and have 5 books sent per month to catch up. They are now on the way.
