I just received a beautiful piece of art from The Forever Moments. The photo was taken when Horatio visited us last month.
My days are filled from 0′ dark thirty until way past sundown.
I often forget to capture the fun moments on the camera, but even when I remember to snap a photo, the pictures rarely leave the hard drive on my computer. I know I’m not the only one who has this problem. Of course I wish I had time to make scrapbooks, I’ve even been to some of those scrapbook parties where an organized mom teaches us barely put together moms how to put together detailed scrapbooks with our kids’ pictures, making the rest of us feel wholly inadequate.
Sometimes I find time to stick a favorite picture of my adorable (yes, I am biased, of course) kids into a frame, but that’s about the most ambitious I get. I barely have time to shower some days, so creating works of art is WAY down on the To Do list.
So I am very happy to have found this great site where someone will do it for me!
You can send your favorite images to The Forever Moments and they will do all the work! They have dozens of templates to choose from and you can personalize them all. They personalized the dog tags on my template. (I’ve edited the boys’ names for privacy, the writing actually looks just like the “Daddy” on the other dog tag.) They will use whatever names you request, no matter how silly, and will even change colors for you.
Each template is cut out by hand, not printed out like you see on other sites.
You can order the templates with or without the frame.
Prices range from $9.95 to $19.99 depending on the intricacy of the design, and they donate $1 of each military themed template order to Blue Star Families, which I love!
I received my art over the weekend and the boys and I immediately found prominent wall space on which to hang it. Then, the next time we skyped with Horatio, we took the camera over to the wall so he could see it.
It brought tears to his eyes.

I received my template as a gift from The Forever Moments but the opinions I’ve expressed are solely mine.
I loved the First Day of School and the school years layout. I’ve got the pictures I just need to frame them!
