Grandparent, Can You Picture This?
You. Sending an email. Typing an address.
This one, for example: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, paste in a picture. Any picture. One from your phone. Or desktop. A favorite. Or not. Now send. Now wait. One minute. Two. Maybe three. Four or five at most…….
and then it happens…..
OMG, you gotta see this!
Go ahead! Try it! I’ll wait!…..
So, what do you think?

Me? I was amazed! Pictures, you see, are all I really want as gifts. Even those I give myself. My “grandma closets” bulge with tablecloths and Tupperware and trinkets. But hand me photos of those I love and you envelop me with the best of all I’ll ever need.
But wait! I want convenience, too. “One-stop shopping,” if you will. Show me my pictures before I buy, prettied up in frames. A choice of frames. And sizes. All while here, at home. Not standing in line with a clutter of coupons while my ice cream melts in the car. Let me wander about here, in fuzzy slippers, measuring, deciding…..glass of wine in hand, a cat or two upon my lap…..
And when I click to buy, I want my goodies fast! Hmmm. How about 72 hours fast? Can you do that? Really? YOU CAN?
And they did!
Ava is part two of our twin sissy duet. I chose “Magneto FlipFrames” for the girls. Heavyweight card mounted photos will easily “flip” to new shots “if” grandma ever finds cuter faces!
When daddy opens this one on Father’s Day, he’ll have not only a “Moderna Metal” portrait of himself and Brielle, but a lasting memory of the evening he escorted his little princess to the Father-Daughter Valentine dance!
Since he’ll be adding a fifth family member by the time Father’s Day rolls around, we’ll give this daddy his “Aurora Glass” portrait early. Perfect for his desk at work – in celebration of his new promotion!
There are other frame styles, too! Ones you’ll enjoy mixing and matching with photos currently held hostage within the gloomy confines of your phone! I liked seeing my own fly free for the first time. You will too!
