Phone Photocrafting

By now you probably know that I most often use my computer or laptop for photocrafting. Niece Shell likes being on her smartphone so this post is from her! She suggests five photocrafting options for your phone. (She uses an iPhone; I use an Android, and these work on both). Apps that work directly on your smartphone mean you don’t have to upload your photos to a computer!

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.

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!
