If I’ve learned one thing as a framer it’s that photos are precious. If I’ve learned one thing as a computer junkie it’s that hard drives will eventually fail. Knowing these two things why is it that so many people (myself included) leave our precious and memorable photos stuck on a hard drive that will eventually crash? Printing your photos isn’t a difficult task, and with the quality of today’s inkjet printers you can print photos from the comfort of your own home that will look just as nice as photos you order from a photo lab. Easier still is printing photos off your iPhone – it can all be done wire free! This video details the quick and easy process.
Keep in mind, you don’t need an Epson printer to do this. Any wireless printer will work. Photos from your iPhone should produce crisp and clear 4″ x 6″ prints. Now you don’t have any excuses not to print out all your favorite photos. Just don’t forget to frame them afterward!

Much is known about Princess Kaʻiulani’s grace, intelligence, beauty and determination. What many people don’t know is that she was also a very talented artist.
Under the tutelage of Joseph Dwight Strong (a landscape painter in the court of her uncle) and Isobel Strong (a lady in waiting to her mother), Princess Kaʻiulani first picked up a brush and began to paint. It soon became evident that she was a gifted painter. She went on to study art in Scotland and France.
Few of her paintings still survive today. Below is one of her paintings that is part of a private collection. It’s an oil painting on canvas simply entitled Poppies. Enjoy.
"Poppies" by Princess Kaʻiulani. Oil on canvas ca.1890.

He explains that he has these frames up to inspire his players to work hard. One framed in particular has a jersey with the number 1 on it with a plaque stating “Who’s Next” as in who will be the next of his players to make it big. We got the order for the framed jerseys and it is great to see that these will give inspiration to future pros starting it here in Hawaii!
