Photocrafting a Wall Hanging

I decided I wanted to use some of our vacation photos on the walls in our bedroom (a practice my husband says makes us look like “old folks” but photocrafting won out.) A favorite part of any trip for us is getting to see the sun set over a body of water so that was an obvious choice. Wanting something larger than a canvas (and yes, we have those too), I found Custom Wall Tapestries. It’s definitely a delight for photocrafters. I could not have been happier; the result was marvelous. I love seeing it every day!

Father’s Day

What a great Father’s Day greeting from Megan at Brassy Apple.

I love having an excuse to do some photocrafting and  Father’s Day is a perfect occasion.  Shell says it’s often hard to find something for a guy, especially something with photos but we have a few ideas for you.

Anniversaries and Photos

My niece, Shell, has an anniversary coming up so she was ready to do some photocrafting for a special gift. She really likes to support small businesses and artists, and Etsy is a great place to get unique personalized gifts for your significant other. Of course, that includes personalized photo gifts just perfect for photocrafting. Shell found an Etsy shop called CreateGiftLove that offers personalized wood and leather gifts and decided on a photo keychain.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

What could be more special than sending your mother a personalized photo vase filled with colorful roses? That’s our photocrafting project for today! Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your mother or a mother figure in your life with a special and personal photocrafting gift.

So how did Mother’s Day begin? The Greeks paid annual homage to Cybele, the mother figure of their gods, and the Romans dedicated an annual spring festival to the mother of their gods. In 16th century England a celebration called “Mothering Sunday” was inaugurated—a Sunday set aside for visiting one’s mother. In 1914 in the U.S., President Woodrow Wilson designated the second Sunday in May to be Mother’s Day. Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated in several countries around the world at different points during the year and according to varying cultural traditions.

We’ve posted about several ideas already that would make special photocrafting Mother’s Day gifts: a fun mug, a cozy throw, a cute tote bag. A few weeks ago, I ran across FromYouFlowers.com and thought it would make an exceptionally unique gift. How special is a bouquet of flowers in a personal photo vase!

Five Favorites: Involving Kids with Photocrafting

Everyone’s home now and that Includes kids of all ages. Seems like a good time to think about how the younger ones especially might get involved in photocrafting? Maybe make something for them; maybe help them create something to give to someone else (it’s hard not to see friends and family in person!); maybe use their artwork as the photo! We’ll list five of our favorite ideas, some new and some based on photo projects we’ve already shown you. Hope you’ll add some ideas of your own in our Comments or on our Facebook page Photocrafting Fun.

Pinhole Press offers wonderful photocrafting opportunities and resulting products for hours of entertainment.
