It's so incredibly overwhelming to keep track of all of the photos I take, managing social networks and trying to keep it all organized on my hard drive. I'm so that girl who has the pinwheel of death because I hold on to everything that comes my way whether it's a memory or inspiration. Not that I'm complaining because I actually love to stimulate my creative side with photos and other imagery. I'm a really visual person and sites like Pinterest make it easier to be able to visualize goals and ideas but sometimes it's nice to have something tangible, too! I just love the traditional process of actually working with something and seeing it in person so it really sticks in my head.
I had the opportunity to try the Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One printer and as soon as I received it, I knew it would be a great opportunity to share my current vision board in a way that balances both digital and tangible. Because, yes, it can be easy to print my digital work into something I can see in front of me everyday.
Clearly health and wellness have been playing a larger role in my life so my current vision board is less about career goals and more about strong personal goals. I want to be inspired by strong women, new workouts, healthy meal options that I can cook my boyfriend (apparently I cook now), and empowered style. I also clearly do not spend enough time in one place to really be organized so being able to print something I see wirelessly from my phone or laptop is completely ideal for me.
Canon has a PIXMA Cloud app that goes along with the printer so you can literally print from anywhere using major social photosharing networks like Facebook, dropbox, and Picasa. I can print directly from my camera roll so when I get back to the printer I already have everything waiting to create my inspiration board. Pretty awesome!
