5 Sites I Use For Free Photos For My Blog

5 Sites I use for photographs for my blog.png

Hi there!

This is one of the first blogging tips and tricks post I’ve written in a long while. I hope to get into the swing of things really soon, but back to this post…

I love using images on my blog. I use lots of my own family photos, like this one of handsome Max:


When I’m looking for a specific image or looking for something that I know I won’t have on hand I will check out one of these five sites:





Stock Snap


Stock Up




Unsplash is my favourite so far, but I use each of them depending on the type of image I need.

Which of these resources have you used before? Which one is your favourite? Do you have a site to add to the list? Let me know by commenting below!

Love and Blessings,

International Women’s Day

Christopher Martin Photography

This year’s theme, “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030” draws attention to the very real and very troubling trends of gender inequality, pay gaps and pressure to reduce or impede women’s rights around the world.

I worry about the world my daughter will find around her as she grows.  My hope is in people on large and small scales making changes to reverse these trends and to realize true equality.  And, my opportunity is to effect these changes in the areas I can influence.  Most importantly with the people in my life and my daughter in particular.

A day is not enough but the awareness highlighted on this one day will hopefully, and willfully, radiate forward.  I celebrate the women in my life and treasure the impacts you have on me, my family and the lives we lead.  Thank you.

Calvin’s Puzzles

Mimi's Marks

My family loves working puzzles – wood puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, brain teasers – you name it.  My two youngest kids also love solving these cube puzzles.  Anytime I find a new unique puzzle at a decent price, I try to get it for them.  It was for that reason that I took advantage of a special promotion and got all 6 of the cube puzzles below.  

These are some very unique designs … and all of them guarantee lots of brain teasing, ago
nizingly fun time for dedicated puzzle solvers.  Video games are fun, but they don’t exercise your brain like these cubes.  What a better way to get your puzzle solvers unplugged and offline than to give them a challenge like these puzzles?  Be prepared to be challenged!  They are all manufactured by Calvin’s Puzzle.
