I've got a lot of dreams for this season. Foremost of which is to spend time with my favorite people. To make that happen in a leisurely -- no last minute mad dashes to crowded stores -- I've begun my shopping and I'm happy to report I'm moving ahead. I like giving photo gifts and I was delighted to find that there are wonderful opportunities at my local Duane Reade. Duane Reade Holiday made it easy-peasy to create a photo mug in less than fifteen minutes.
Between grocery shopping and a quick trip to the fruit and veggie market I created a personalized gift.
I settled down in the comfy chair and followed the directions.
There are a lot of gifts to choose from. I knew I wanted a gift for a dear friend. She has a long commute and loves her coffee in the car. I was hoping to find a fun travel mug.
I found the commuter mug I was looking for. There were lots of fun gifts to choose from and all it took was a few clicks. I was delighted that the prices were reasonable.
I loaded my photos from my memory card -- these pictures are cell phone shots -- and it took less than a minute for my pictures to appear.
I chose the photo I wanted to use and I cropped the picture with just a couple of clicks. I loved working on the big screen.
A sort-of-selfie. I'm delighted to have made this gift with lots of time to spare. I will be getting an email in the next few days when the mug is ready and I can pick it up.
It turned to winter on Saturday night which really brought home that this is the Chanukah and Christmas season. I'm enjoying my cozy apartment and I did not like leaving for a dental appointment this afternoon. The temperature was a relatively balmy thirty three degrees which is warmer than a lot of places around the country, but still cold. So glad I'm in two closed toe shoes.
Please keep warm and cozy. I'm so glad you stopped by to visit and take good care of yourself.
