Picture Blanket for MIL Dearest

My mother-in-law is blessed with immense creativity, which she aptly uses to earn a living. Just like me, she too works from home where she designs and creates great handicrafts, artwork as well as smocking dresses for babies and toddlers. Among her many creative creations, I believe her speciality lies in quilts. They truly are one of a kind and each one is personally customized to accommodate her customers’ requirements; rendering them unique with her personal creative touch.

Her birthday is coming up and I'm thinking of getting her a Picture Blanket from Vision Bedding. What’s a picture blanket you ask? Well, it’s actually a blanket that has your favourite photo or digital picture professionally dyed into it. Utilizing the laPhotoBlankets production technology, Vision Bedding ensures quality custom picture blankets that are extremely sharp and vividly colored.

Picture blankets make wonderful personalized gifts that are suitable for every occasion. Available in 3 sizes, you also have 13 fleece colors for bottom layer and many cool collage and layout designs to choose from. It is certainly unique and makes a pleasant change from the usual gifts available in gift stores today. From birthdays to graduations and Mother's Day, nothing says you care more than a beautiful personalized picture blanket!

Through her many creative creations, my MIL has always been the one creating memories for others. She understands the needs of her customers completely and uses them to ensure her work accommodate their every wish. She’s really a lovely person, who treats me more like a friend rather than a daughter-in-law. This birthday I want to make sure she knows just how special she is by giving her a lovely picture blanket that captures our fondest memories together forever. I hope she'll like it!

Actually I think this is a pretty cool idea :) Imagine having your own blanket with Jennifer Lopez printed on in and having her on top of you while you sleep ... cool right? LOL!

Now to get wifey to sign off on that idea ... LOL!

Mariuca November 27, 2007 11:07 PM

LJ!! My MIL also does embroidery. You should see her work room, there's lotsa stuff everywhere, very hard to walk around without bumping into her many accessories and kain perca! ;)

LadyJava November 28, 2007 12:02 AM

Yelah GP, my MIL also got room of her own...and strange equipment for her craft...I will take the camera out one day and take pictures and blog abt them...ehehe

Adrian November 28, 2007 12:53 AM

Nick why stop at one! After all its a blanket and can cover a lot of space! I'd have Beyonce and Jessica Alba together and maybe if there is space I'd sneak J-Lo on too LOL

Marzie...it's nice idea and just in time for Christmas too! :) Hey you could do one of baby Isabella since she'll be going away soon...at least you'll have her pillow to hug when you think of her! :)

Mariuca November 28, 2007 5:32 AM

He he.. tell me abt the strange equipment LJ!! It's amazing to see how she puts all the pieces together and come up with a bag la, doll la, tissue cover la... :):):)

Mariuca November 28, 2007 5:34 AM

GK! I think it's a fantastic idea to get myself an Isabella pillow or blankey LOL!!

Beyonce huh? ;)

Bobby Revell November 28, 2007 7:14 AM

I want one with Phoebe!!!!! I would keep it in private so people wouldn't laugh at me, but I'd be really warm and cozy:):):)

Mariuca November 28, 2007 8:20 AM

Bobby! A Phoebe picture blankey sounds totally adorable and it'll definitely keep u warm and cozy.. just like the real Phoebe! ::):):)

Nick Phillips (15/03/1967 - 04/11/2022) November 28, 2007 9:00 AM

Adrian - now that's an idea ... LOL!

Marzie - Johnny Depp? LOL!

Mariuca November 28, 2007 9:12 AM

Nick! Cute what Johnny Depp! I like! He he he... ;)

Ya lah when it comes to MIL's pressies, it feels like getting pressies for your own mum. So must make sure she gets the best right?

But this is a unique pressie u have decided to give her. She will love it!! Got baby pictures some more. Of course she will enjoy seeing the pictures! =)

Mariuca November 28, 2007 12:25 PM

Hey Nafa! Yeah, this is actually one very unique gift, B thinks it's a good idea too! Not sure yet what pics we're gonna choose for the blankey though, this one is just a sample! :):):)

Mariuca December 02, 2007 11:14 PM

Yay! You think so Jean? Always have problems deciding what to get her, so this one is definitely different than all the other pressies so far! ;)

I cant imagine how a picture of yours
converted to blanket. how much it cost anyway.

Mariuca May 16, 2008 12:12 PM

Hola! Basically the picture will be printed onto the blanket. I'm really not sure how much it costs, cause there are different prices for the different sizes available. You can click on the link to find out more info yeah? Thanks! :)

emilayusof September 29, 2008 9:24 AM
