Valentine’s Day Memories

With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away on Thursday 14 February you have a great opportunity to give a unique gift to that special person in your life.

You may have a favourite photograph from your relationship which captures a special moment that would make an ideal lasting memory. You could have that photograph engraved into one of our pendants to make it truly lasting.

Remember all those photos I asked you to take at Christmas time? Now is the time to look through them and pull out the one, really good photo of the two of you or of your family, and turn it into a stunning piece of jewellery. The results are amazing. The etchings are as clean and clear to see as your photo but they won’t fade over the years.

Instead of a photograph you may have a favourite poem or even some words from a song that capture the feelings you have for the recipient of the gift. As an example, these words can be etched on to one of our Heart Shaped Pendant made from 9ct Yellow Gold.

Valentine’s Day can also be a time to show your love and appreciation for another member of your family.  This may be a parent, grandparent or even one of your children.

What better way to show your affection for that person than with an item of jewellery from Etched In Memories?  It’s a lovely way to show how much you value the relationship and their friendship.

Capturing School Memories

With school about to return towards the end of the month it is a perfect time to capture some memories of your children as they get ready.  Maybe this year is the first time they are going to primary school or high school.  Record the moment in your photo collection so you have it forever.

You can make taking photos part of the fun of going back to school.  It might help to deal with any anxiety your child may be feeling.  For example, get your child and maybe their friends around and spend an afternoon covering and labelling books.  There are sure to be plenty of laughs and smiles that will also make some great photographs.

Also, on the actual day of school make sure you take a picture of your child when they are in their uniform and ready to go to school.  They pass this stage so quickly.

If this is the first time your child is going to school then you should try and take some pictures at the school and even when they are in their classroom.

Another photo idea is the first piece of work they bring home.  Whether this is a picture or some other form of artwork it also can make a lasting memory.  Children seem to grow up so fast these days and capturing some school memories is great fun for all involved.
