What a wonderful surprise I got this month — a photo book made just for me! I had a major birthday and Shel and her mom decided to make a book for me. I was (and am) overwhelmed! What a labor of love! It’s fabulous and seems just the right highlight for this post.
Photo books are probably the primary photocrafting experience and a good way to wrap up Photocrafting Fun for a while. We’ll look at my very special book, review some photocrafting organizing tips, and provide links to some of our earlier posts about books. Here’s to inspiring you to start creating your own book! Believe me, it will be a treasure.
Hey, Shel says it’s time to think about the gifts we photocrafters might like to have. She’s put together a list of five. Hope you find something here that catches your eye or, better yet, is an addition to your personal gift list.
It seems appropriate for Memorial Day weekend to highlight a way in which photocrafting can contribute to honoring the past. FindAGrave.com has collected over 190 million cemetery records as a subsidiary of Ancestory.com. A most crucial part of each record are the photos of the cemetery, the gravesite, and the headstones. All of this information is provided by unpaid volunteers. We have focused on ways photocrafting can benefit us and our friends. This is an opportunity to benefit others as well.
What a great time for photocrafters! June is full of opportunities for photocrafting gifts — think June weddings, Father’s Day, graduations. Are you new to photocrafting and a little worried that it might be too much work? Shel found a wonderful site, ShoreCrafty, on Etsy that offers perfect possibilities. It’s as easy as selecting one photo and sending it off.
We all know photocrafting is good for scrapbooks — lots of family memories, pictures of weddings, baby books. How about a scrapbook of jigsaw puzzles? My friend, Anita, has a long family tradition of doing a jigsaw puzzle together at Christmastime. The puzzles represent happy family times so they kept them. Now, many years later, they have a collection of jigsaw puzzles that has outgrown their walls and storage spaces. What to do? Photocrafting, of course!
