Holiday Gift Guide Day 20 - Plaqueworks Review and Giveaway

I love photography and capturing life's little memories. It's common to find me with my camera out, clicking away. There's nothing like capturing the joy on my daughter's face when she stopped her first goal in soccer, and the look of amazement on her face when she saw Disneyland for the first time. It's magic.

I usually just print off the pictures and stick them in a photo album, but with today's gift idea I can do so much more.

Plaqueworks is a new online photo retailer that takes life's little moments and turns them into a work of art. All you have to do is choose your photo and plaque style, add an inscription, and you're done - minutes of work for a lifetime of memories.

When I was trying to decide what to put on my plaque, I narrowed it down to 2 things, my wedding day and my girls. I made this one for my girls


and this one for my wedding day.


As much as I love my girls, I decided to go with my wedding day photo.

I was a little bit worried before my plaque came because I didn't have a very high quality picture and I was worried that it might be blurry. I was worried for nothing.





The plaque was a little bit darker than I expected, but the picture looked as good as it did online.
