Custom Photo Memories|Coaster Set|Gifts of Love|ThePhotoGardener

Product Description

We all have old photos that are touchstones of memory. I love to use these memories as small, practical, artful gifts of coaster sets.  Gifts that literally keep on giving with each use. Most of the time these photos have been tucked away in albums we rarely look at or the best of them are behind glass on a wall in our house.  Walls that probably don’t have space for one more photo.   I bring your favorite, precious photos out of the albums and off the walls into daily artful use as coasters.

People who have bought some of my work have found multiple uses for the coasters.  Some have put just one coaster in their bag, like a photo, when going on a trip but confident that it won't get crushed or wrinkled in the bag. One woman, going to the hospital for surgery, put a single coaster in her bag so she could have it for good luck during her hospital stay. Others have put it on a small easel on a bureau.  And, yes, many use them as coasters, too!

I think there are many ways to use these small (4in x4in) portable memories.

I've included examples from my own family archive to give you ideas on how to look through your own albums.

I include the photo of my late brother at the wheel of my Dad’s boat when he was a young, young boy, my brother's own boat years later & the photo of my parents sitting on the front porch steps as I took their photo through the living room window.  The blooming rambling rose bush that always bloomed at the 4th of July, an interior shot of the late afternoon light streaming through the front door.  The adorable profile of the youngest generation within the family as well as his sister. A 4-year-old's first piece of fried dough still makes me laugh out loud. It was larger than her head and baseball cap. The street signs of the village in Ireland where our ancestors once lived. Honeymoon photos. Vacation photos. Everyday life photos. They are all intimate memories once time has marched on by and in this form make me smile, remember & I love that I can use them on a daily basis and they can be shared with other family members and enjoyed in the same way.   It is a way to keep all those memories alive with a light touch and a sense of joy. A way to connect the people, the places, favorite objects, the favorite animals, even the angles of light in a room are candidates for these gifts of love.

Here's how it works: You can upload your photo below in designated area. Once you upload it you'll see the cropping or rotate image icon and the disc icon. Clicking the disc icon will fully upload your image.  Included in the price of the item are all the photo editing, coloring and texture overlay so don't stress about cropping or photo rotation.

Ideally, You should hear from me the same day of your order being processed.

I'll email you the draft image of the final coaster image within two days, just prior to forwarding it to production.  Production is usually 3-5 days after that.

Please upload the highest resolution photo you have but it has to be in a (jpg) or (png) format. Phone photos are fine, in focus, of course! Old photos can be faded in color or black and white.
