The New Year is a time when you’re able to think of all the goals you’d like to achieve in the coming 365 days. Why not add giving the gift of photo to text to your resolution list?
Imagine, you’ve just spent the morning going to the gym, and while you’re exhausted, you feel the energy charge up your legs and arms again as you feel accomplished for working out. You’ve done the thing that you desired to do most in the New Year: get in shape. As you enter your home, you immediately go to make a cup of coffee or tea, and while you’re leaning against the kitchen counter, you see out the window the beautiful sunshine pouring into your home.
As you sip your after workout beverage from a mug glazed green, you approach the window slowly and watch as the vapors disappear into the sun rays. You take a moment to be grateful for all the things that you’ve done for yourself in just a few weeks in the New Year, and you never want to forget it. You sit your mug down on the window sill, take a few steps back, and you snap a few photos.
You spend the rest of your day lounging on the couch reading a good novel that captures all the emotions you’ve felt today: contentment, gratitude, and pure happiness. You wish this moment could last forever, but you had no idea how to. You insist that you’ll always remember this moment, but how can that be true when there are so many days that have gone by before that you can’t remember the wonderful moments you’ve enjoyed?
You decide to shut the book in the middle of a riveting chapter to go retrieve your journal from your bedside table drawer. You decide you’ll make this moment last for a lifetime by writing out your words with a pen and paper, hoping the ink sinks in deep enough to stain on your memories. You start writing vigorously, talking about how this morning was amazing because your workout was exhausting yet energizing. You play with metaphors and similes as you tell the journal all about how you made your beverage directly in the mug, and how you watched the birds outside chirp softly at one another as they seemingly discussed the gorgeous weather. You feel a sense of urgency as you tell the journal all the about the sunlight cascading in from the window, and how you took a gorgeous photograph of your mug with dancing wisps of vapors in the air that trailed away from your eyeline. You tell it more and more about the novel that you’re reading, and how you feel completely connected to the protagonist’s struggle with how they’re attempting to discover beauty in the word, and you selfishly feel like you’ve found it yourself already.
Lastly, you tell the journal all about how you’re afraid that you’ll forget all of these precious moments and memories because time is a fleeting thing, and while your photo may be gorgeous, it doesn’t fully express the beauty of the day. You then wonder if the text in your journal will be enough since it doesn’t entirely capture the rarity of the sunlight’s movement in your living room or how the temperature rose and fell between the light and the shade. You’re terrified that you won’t remember these things at all.
Lucky for you, you know about photo to text. You can take your expressive words directly from your journal and submit with the stunning photograph you took to create a memory that will outlast your own. The way your words weave in and out of the vapors from the mug will be enough to realize that this is definitely something you’ll never forget.
Think of this as a gift to yourself. It’s a New Year, so why shouldn’t you feel great about it? Take the time to appreciate all that the New Year has given you by giving something back to yourself with your words etched over a photograph. You’ll be able to hang the photo anywhere in the home that you’d like to ensure that you never, ever forget the magical moments you experience on this day. You’ll be able to relive them time and time again.
Maybe you’re not looking to treat yourself. Maybe you’re looking to treat someone else that lives far away, and you want them to enjoy the same moment you did. This is an amazing gift to show someone that you were thinking about them. You didn’t want to keep this moment selfishly locked away in your own heart. You wanted to share it with the world, and why shouldn’t you? Even if your photo didn’t turn out exactly like you’d hoped, you could select a variety of any other photos to have your words etched on them to give a personal touch that will outlast all other memories. It truly is the perfect gift.
Luckily for you, it’s convenient, too! You can purchase the canvas in one of three sizes, and your new home decor is always shipped ready to hang. No more attempting to figure out how you’re going to get these moments to last forever when you can simply just upload your own .jpg image or even purchase one from the online portfolio. All of your friends and family will be jealous of your creation as you share your new artwork to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and before long, they’ll be asking, “wow, how can I get one of those amazing gifts”?
