Bringing Memories To Life With My-picture.co.uk

One thing that brings a smile to my face is my family, and my grandchildren really do bring a smile to my face.  You will also know that my daughter C loves her art, and it is the one thing she has been able to carry on with during her illness.

Our youngest granddaughter was born in November last year, and one evening her other Nanny messaged me to ask if C would do a drawing of the girls.  C loves her nieces and chose a photo out of the few we had chosen.

We had kept this a secret from the girls Mum, and she only found out once I had posted it to my facebook.  She was blown away and loved it, as did many others.  C is very modest about her artwork and me telling her how good she is really means nothing, as I am just Mum.

So many people contacted me to say she should sell her artwork, or turn it into items that could be kept.  Even her Dad (who she gets her talent from), has talked to her about it.

I was recently contacted by My-picture.co.uk, to see if I would like to collaborate with them, and review a range of their products. This would be a perfect opportunity to show C how good her artwork would look printed up.

Poster Prints

I first chose a poster print, which I love and will be going up in C’s bedroom.  Everything from the quality of the paper to the colours of the print were perfect.

Personalised Blanket

Everyone loves a cosy soft blanket to snuggle under, and this is gorgeous personalised blanket, with the print on one side and a soft grey on the other.  I am letting the girls have this for when they want to snuggle on the sofa after a tiring day.

Personalised Cushion

Personalised Cushion

C loves cushions, and I had to get her picture made into a cushion.  It is a lovely soft silky fabric and looks great. she is loving having it on her bed.

Personalised Towels

My granddaughters love swimming, and these are two of my favourite reason pictures of them.  I thought they would be perfect for trips to the beach or swimming pool over the summer holidays.

Personalised Mug

Personalised Mug

One thing I am terrible for is mugs, I have far too many, as much as I adore this mug.  I am giving this to my daughter in law so she can enjoy a cuppa out of her own special mug.

    C is a talented artist! I love the design she made for the little girls.

    Also, this is a wonderful idea! I have tons of photographs in my hard drive and wanted to send some to my boyfriend abroad but didn’t want to just dump them in a photo album. I’m very much tempted to send him a blanket with our pictures on it!
