The Perfect Keepsake…

Valentines Day is a little less than a month away and I have the perfect gift idea for you! My featured blog post this month is my cousin, Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a mom of two. Liz is so incredibly creative and I’m grateful to get to share her Amazing work and Etsy shop. So here’s a little backstory on how Liz got started…

I started making gifts for friends and opened my Etsy shop almost 10 years ago, but I was an art major and a teacher, so lettering, crafts, and creativity have always been important. My kids don’t have a play room, we have an art room, which surrounds my office.

She has so many different things to offer and great reviews!! She put the lyrics of a song sang at my husband and I’s wedding on a photo mat. I just had to buy the frame, and vavoom… how much does this snazz up the picture!? I know we’ll always cherish this photo. My memory isn’t great so now I can remember the song lyrics! Speaking of memory, our wedding was actually 7-5-13. I gave her the month! Mom brain! Liz has such great customer service that she is already sending me a new one! Embarrassing, but real life!

One of my favorite things to do when decorating for the seasons is display pictures of our kiddos. I love seeing how much they grow! The frame below is the cutest! Now I want one for every holiday! And these make the perfect gifts!

From Liz herself and I couldn’t agree more!!

Ok…photo gifts are meaningful, easy to give, but sometimes just blah. I started adding personalized quotes and lyrics to photo mats for brides to give as thank you gifts for their weddings. But a hand-lettered mat dresses up any frame and makes the gift so much more meaningful, so several of my mats are really popular for Valentines Day, anniversaries, and Mother and Father’s Day.
