7th Day of Christmas: Imagery! - Meet Me on Monday #27

Photos from loved ones is a great gift for the holidays!!
Especially for family and  loved ones far away.
Photo cards are one way of sharing a current family photo with those you care about. Here are a couple I've made for others recently:
Yes, I did take these pix, too.  ;D

WHAT?? Where's OURS???
Yeah... ABOUT THAT....
I'll get back to you!!  ;p
In the past my sister and I have sort of collaborated on some photo gifts for our mom! Over the more recent years here are some of the items we gave: 
  • Sis got her a digital frame and I helped her gather and resize images of all of her loved ones with lots of memories included. 
  • I got her a photo jewelry box that hangs on the wall and filled it with family shots.  (JC Penny... Click the pic...)
  • Sis got her a tree stand with little locket type jewels that we resized pix for...
  • I covered a notebook with padding and fabric and filled it with photo album pages as a photo album.
  • This year hubby made photo books for our daughter that lost her baby in 2007 and has the little boy with the same disorder. He did one on each of them.
  • Prints for walls, frames or albums
  • Photo albums, journals, and/or scrapbooks
  • Slideshow on a disc set to music
  • Compilation of video clips with special memories
There are SO MANY MORE...
If some of these print type ones are something you'd like to give this Christmas, RITZ most likely has a store close to YOU and will do these in store! No shipping... Upload, order, choose local store and pick up! No waiting!! (Except for them to process them... but it's not like you can't just go pick up when it's READY...) My local pick up is Inkley's. My cousin's in Texas is Ritz Camera... ALL the same family... RITZ!  ;D  If you "LIKE" them on FB, they even have "The 12 Days of Ritzmas" going on with drawings for some pretty SWEET items!!

Another good option is

1.  What will your Christmas dinner consist of?
USUALLY it's Thanksgiving dinner all over again.
But THIS YEAR we're doing something DIFFERENT!
Our daughter wanted to make her enchildas for EVERYONE, and no one objected, so we're doing a Mexican POT LUCK!!
  2.  Do you watch commercials or do you flip through the channels?

 I'm a flipoholic... No one wants the clicker in MY hands... It's so bad that I will frequently WATCH 2 shows simultaneously jumping back and forth between the 2.

    3.  How long will you leave your Christmas decorations up? 
         Till New Year's Day... or shortly thereafter... The house feels so NAKED when we take them down...

    4.  What movie makes you cry every time you watch it?
    I'm not good at following rules...
    I CAN'T choose ONE!!  ;p 
    ...and I KNOW there's a LOT more...
      Simon Birch
     The Notebook

    5.  Do you have a Facebook?
    Ummm... Who doesn't??? LOL! 
    It's the only way I can keep in contact with people from all over the globe!!  ;D

    You have come up with many meaningful ideas for presents.

    I was wondering if the pretty girl in your sidebar was you, and then one of the "You might also like" came up. Yes it is you. You are right, your real claim to fame is your family.
