    My daughter is turning 16 this year, so I would use a picture from this year as well as a baby picture of her. Thanks for sharing how to make this cool project.

  2. Kristi H says:

    We have a family reunion coming up and I have a jar of my grandmas buttons. I think this would be a great keepsake to make a necklace with a picture of my grandma and one of her buttons for each of my cousins!

  3. Ginger B. says:

    I have a photo of my husband and son as they sat at the top of a waterfall in Japan that I am in love with. I’d add a small photo of the waterfall from it’s base in the other dome.

  4. Kim says:

    I have a photo of my dog, who just passed away, that I’d love to have in a locket/necklace. Would love to win this. Thanks.

  5. Judee Aten says:

    I have a small photo of my son that passed away in 1989. He’s 9 months old and has a huge smile on his face. I’ve saved it for years waiting for the right project to use it for. This is the one!

  6. Kate Ledum says:

    A few months ago my mom came to visit us in our new home in Canada. We went sightseeing a bit and Butchart Gardens was one of the places we went. My mom loves her own garden and loves gardening. As a gift to my mom, I would use a picture of her from the trip and then add pictures from her garden and Butchart Gardens along with some plant/flower charms.

  7. memorybookmo says:

    I would have to make two charms….one charm for each of our children who were both married within the last three years. I would use one of the photos from each of their wedding days. Happy times to remember and cherish!

  8. Jennifer Huelsman says:

    I would love to make a bracelet of my fur babies. And maybe another one of my grandboys. That way I can see them every day.

  9. Sharon Howell says:

    I, too, would like to have photos of my two furry kids. I also have two favorite pictures of my daughter, age 3 and age 16. They would make a good necklace. If I could find my wedding pictures, I would do one of my husband and I. Then there are my two favorite teddy bears, one from when I was little and the one that sits on my bed today.

  10. Jenna says:

    I would make a couple of necklaces. One would be my own children and another would be my grandparents. I love this idea and had a purse made with my childrens’ picture when they were little. Personalized gifts are the best to make and receive.

  11. Belinda says:

    I have a pboto of my dad in his service uniform I think would be perfect for this. Maybe a second one with a picture of my new grandbaby.

  12. Julie Malone says:

    I would use the photos that I have of my ten grandchildren! Three different families. 3 + 3 + 4. I have many photos of them and one for each family in particular that I could put each family of grandchildren in each glass dome. 3 domes and I would have all my grandchildren. Even better…..10 domes! How cool would that be! A great conversation piece and keepsake to be sure!

  13. Pietra C says:

    I would use a picture of my forever 16 year old daughter Serena. She passed away last year, and I miss her immensely.

  14. Katherine Babcock says:

    About a year ago, I had a dear pup that I rescued from a very abuse situation. He was my first dog – the kids had wanted a dog forever, but with 3 cats, a turtle, 103 hermit crabs, and 3 subhuman children, I was at maximum capacity. (I’m a single mom with no help.) I had always said no to a dog…but then Pappi came into my life, I fell completely in love, and found my best friend.

    We were walking him one night last summer – he was on a leash and had a harness on. A coyote came out of the darkness and grabbed him. We had a tug-of-war over Pappi (a Chihuahua)…but the coyote pulled him out of his harness and took off with him. My son chased them, but couldn’t catch up to them. I was honestly heartbroken. I’ve been through a lot in my life – but this loss cut to the bone. I was absolutely devastated.

    Thankfully, I took a LOT of pictures of Pappi while he was with us. I would love to use photos of him. He prompted us to rescue FOUR other Chihuahuas – all of which I love dearly – but there will always be a hole in my heart for Pappi. It would be so awesome to have the ability to display his photos like that.

  15. says:

    I lost my Mom in February this year and my Dad in March of this year (24 days apart), so I would make this project twice; once for me and once for my sister. I have been looking for something like this to do to put old pictures of Mom and Dad in. Perfect!

  17. Kimberly Rowland says:

    My problem will be where to start. I have so many pictures I want to use. My plan is to do a family tree piece. I want to get a wooden plaque – paint a tree and add these to the branches and then hang it on the wall 🙂

  18. Mary Bezdicek says:

    I would use a picture taken of my sister, brother and myself taken in 1966. Even thought we are scattered across the country now, the necklace would be a reminder of the bond the three of us share that time and distance cannot break.

  19. Treneice Anderson says:

    I have a picture of my first child when she was three weeks old with my great grandmother. It would look good in the necklace. That was 18 years ago.

  20. Jo-Anne Terranella says:

    I love things like this, I have a picture of me at 1yr. old wearing a hand crocheted dress my mother made and I had my granddaughter wear
    it on her first birthday with me holding her and the picture of me on her
    lap. It is quit a memory. She is now 26 and I am 75.

  21. Debbie Kaste says:

    I’m sure I’d find PLENTY of items to use these products for, however, IF I won, I’d like to ‘pass-it-on’ and give my gift to Katherine Babcock (who left a comment earlier). So sad to loose her dog:( We have a rescue too and they steal your heart!!!

  22. Sue D says:

    What a fabulous idea to wear to your folk’s anniversary. I would like to give my mom a necklace with a photo of her and my dad who passed away last year.

  23. Babette Britton says:

    I would use the one and only, very small photo of my brother I have-it was taken before he was put up for adoption

  24. Carla Hundley says:

    I have a photo of myself
    with my husband leaning
    against my back, smiling
    otf in the distance. Was
    taken on Mother’s Day
    while we were on a picnic
    Really cute photo.

  25. Laurie Schock says:

    I would put a picture of my mother in laws parents on each side and give it to her as a gift from our grandchildren. She has beautiful pictures of her parents. Then the necklace could be passed down to my daughter – her only grandchild 🙂

  26. Nancy Dempsey says:

    My late husband. He passed away ten years ago at a very young age. It would be another way to keep him close to my heart.

  27. Jenn says:

    I want to use this giveaway charm to capture my family from a trip to Norris Lake. The kids are getting older and wanting to be with their friends constantly. Was able to capture a shot of them actually smiling with us…their parents!!! 🙂
    Thank you for the opportunity

  28. Laurel Giard says:

    I Have A Picture Of My Youngest That His Grandpa Had With Him To Look At While Passing Away. This Would Be A Wonderful Way To Keep This With me.

  29. Jen P says:

    The photo I would choose would be of my grandmother. She turned 94 last year and has the early to mid stages of dementia. She has always been the “go to” person in our family as she knew how to fix everything, grown just about anything, and make the most amazing foods from scratch. She always seemed to know just what to do. It is very difficult to see her slipping away from us. I would make each of us a necklace with her picture in it – to keep her close.

  30. Karen Decker says:

    Great ideas! So many options. 🙂 My kids, my hubby, my grandkids. I think the first one I make will be of my sisters and I. I’m smiling just thinking about it.

  31. Linda Martin says:

    My youngest grandchild was just diagnosed with Autism. The first 18 months of his life have been tough on our family. Our tight family bond and our faith will get us through this. This child is truly special and will face a lot of difficult times in his life, but Nana will always be his biggest cheerleader. My grandson Liam is who I would like to see around my neck, to remind myself when I might need the reminder, that God doesn’t make mistakes.
