Use Sworl to turn iPhone shots of old photos into easy seasonal artwork!

“These images bring back great memories for my family. Now they’re out of the albums and onto a table, ready to enjoy for many Halloweens to come.”

Halloween photos

 

It’s that time again: leaves are turning, nights are chilly, and pumpkins, spider webs, tombstones and ghosts are popping up all around the neighborhood.

For our family, the years of trick or treating and grade school Halloween carnivals are over. My girls are now in high school and college, and while they still love dressing up, the costumes now skew glamorous rather than spooky.sppoky Halloween photo

We were recently looking at old Halloween photos in albums from the early 2000s when we still routinely had prints made. I shot some of our favorites with my iPhone and decided to Sworl them up for a little Halloween display.

Here’s Julia as Pippi Longstocking, a witch and Snow White, and Laura as a devil and ghost, along with a strange candlestick my wife found at a yard sale, a big plastic spider we’ve had for decades, and a haunted house the kids painted at a party years ago. We chose 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 desk frames in Espresso and ankids Halloween photo 8 x 10 wall frame in Black.

These images bring back great memories for my family. And with Sworl, now they’re out of the albums and onto a table, ready to enjoy for many Halloweens to come.

Printed and framed by Christina James, Seattle, WA, to add to what she calls the “Wall of Sisters”—as it’s covered with pictures of her two girls.

“Clare decided that instead of getting gifts, she’d rather have people donate to Girl Rising, an organization that supports education for girls worldwide…”

“We took this photo for a blog we made to invite people to our daughter Clare’s Bat Mitzvah. Clare decided that instead of getting gifts, she’d rather have people donate to Girl Rising, an organization that supports education for girls worldwide, especially in places where it’s not typically common or possible.  In the “Girl Rising” movie and on the website, many girls are shown with these words written on their hands.

“Clare recognized a need, and the fact that she has everything she needs. This is who she is and what she does. Most people loved the idea, and it became an instance of a community coming together and giving in a meaningful way.

“For Clare, it was also about rising as an adult in our religion and showing that she’d educated herself to the place where she’s worthy of being considered an adult. Clare attends Seattle Girls’ School, which has definitely helped her develop her intellect and worldview. She’s a strong individual who loves soccer, math and constitutional law and aspires to be president someday.”

“I have been trying to cross this framing project off my to-do list for a year. It’s finally done! Sworl is really easy to use—I especially love paying with a scan of my credit card so I don’t have to type in the number.”

“I had a picture of my grandparents on the upper right of the wall—William and Virginia Davis—and I wanted to add some photos of other family members. I had digital files that my sister had scanned and so I started with my mom, Theresa Marie Davis and dad, Robert Anthony Wilkins on their wedding day. They’re each on the left of the photos, while the bridesmaid and best man are on the right. That was 1968. I was born the next year. At the upper left is a picture of my grandfather’s parents William and Edna Davis around 1940.”

Sworl is really easy to use—I especially love paying with a scan of my credit card so I don’t have to type in the number. My sister just found some pics of my grandmother’s parents, so I’ll probably be ordering those in the near future.”

“I ordered three prints from Sworl that we hung as a grouping in our living room. I love Sworl and I know I’ll be using it for Christmas presents because it’s just so easy!”

“Taken on a typical summer evening, this photo captures my son Ryder and his attitude. He’s four.  He loves tractors, motorcycles and dump trucks and spending days with his Papaw and Nanny who live nearby. He hates the shirt he’s wearing in the photo because it has purple in it. I’m the one who chose it—to go with the outfit my stepdaughter Madisen was wearing for the photo shoot.
