Good thread and good ideas. Here's another one. Since there are now fairly large pet cemeteries, how 'bout a "pet medallion" for the gravesite, or a pet collage for the wall?

Hi Ed,

That's a good idea too. Would the medallion be seperate from the "stone" or attached to it? Just wondering how this might work exactly. I suppose you would have to contact the company that makes the headstones. Or perhaps you could fashion some kind of stake and attach the medallion to the top. I wouldn't want this to be some kind of "high-price" item. I would really want to make this affordable for people--know what I mean? There is a large pet cemetery in my area--perhaps I could ask them what they think.

Attached is an image that possibly could be used for something like this.

Sort of along those lines,to insure that the photo had "staying power" you might consider printing on heavy matte paper and using one of the UV resistant photo spray varnish compounds before mounting the print in its holder. Tom

I know that alot of people in Florida have their pets cremated.How about small memorial boxes with the pets picture on it?
Changing the topic a little now:

Had a thought relating to portrait miniaitures and genology. Pehaps a grouping of portraits could be hung on a tree made of dowels.
I saw one in a craft shop once that I think was intended for ornaments. The idea I think is to get a repeat business from someone. For example doing it for myself, I would start by hanging pictures of myself,husband and two children-then I would add pictures of our parents and grandparents. When,if ever, we have grandchildren they would be added.Each portrait would be a special"work of art" in itself. And given how families change today think of how easy it would be to just remove a portrait.

Amanda,

I think it would be cheaper and easier to put them in their own holder, which could be pushed into the ground. Going the other route would probably make things a little expensive, although I don't know that for sure.

Nice image you have there to put into a medallion.

Paulette,

I like your idea about the dowel made tree. Just think - when the divorce does occur, you no longer have to cut someone out of the picture!

Ed
