Photo Weavers Photo Blanket Review and Giveaway

May 4, 2011

I had an amazing opportunity to make a beautiful woven blanket with some pictures on it!  I had to show you all before Mother’s day.  However, This would also make a perfect gift for any other holiday or occasion.

DSC08135We got this blanket for ourselves to try – but as a gift – I can’t imagine how breathtaking it would be.  Imagine Grandparents who live far away; or as a wedding gift; as a tribute to a family who lost a loved one. To be able to cuddle up with the photos of your loved ones – is awesome.

The process of making this blanket is really simple – You go to their website, http://www.photoweavers.com, upload a photo, choose if you’d like any borders, text, or design elements (all at no extra charge) and they’ll make the blanket and ship it approximately 4 days after ordering.

DSC08136

The typical retail price for the photo blanket is $119, however they have made a code special for my readers that will offer you 35% off of your order.  the code for this is ‘grinningcheektocheek’ . This code is valid until or around July 10th, 2011.

Photo Weavers is also offering the chance for one of my readers to win a photoblanket of their own!!

Win It!!!

Photo Weavers is giving away a woven photo blanket to one of my lucky readers!! RV $119

    I would put a picture of “Miss Charley” my dog who passed away 4 years ago.

    She was my best friend, and disabled. I cared for her as she was my child .

    I will never forget her, I so yearn for her to this day.
