  • A Step Beyond Restoring

    Here is a business idea that clients might like. After restoring an old photo, do something special with it. I have done a few of these for different people, after showing them a sample and letting them know that such a thing was possible...most folks never thought of it so would not ask for it.

    This is the first one I made, which gave me the idea. It's a picture of my parents a few years after they were married. My mom had an old newspaper clipping of a poem stuck in the frame of a portrait of her and my dad, who passed away many years ago. I secretly copied it and made up this gift for her for Mother's Day, in an 8x10 frame, using a snapshot from her old family album. She said it was the best gift she ever received. And, some of her friends who saw it asked for similar items, so I think this might be popular with lots of folks, once they know you can do it.

          I can understand why your mother said that was the best gift she ever received. Beautiful job on something that will be cherished forever.

            Glad you like it. To see another example, this one on friendship, see the second post here:

              That is just beautiful. I can see why your mother liked it so much.
