SET UP A DIY FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT
Figure out who has the best camera or camera phone in the family, and use that (make sure it has a self-timer, or you can get a remote for your phone. Search online for some nice poses that work for your family! Find a location that is not too sunny, place the family with the sun behind them (prevents squinting). Make sure you find somewhere that you can place the camera at about eye level, you want to use flattering angles! Set the timer and jump in! Don’t stress about perfection, family photo bloopers are the photos you can never plan for!

KEEP IT OLD SCHOOL AND PUT A NEW TWIST ON THE ORIGINAL MACARONI NECKLACE
Upcycle an old necklace by adding a noodle charm! Paint the noodle with a few coats of paint (don’t forget the inside!) for the added touch! I recommend using a metallic spray paint for an even, high-end look.
