Mothers Day memories with Truprint #millionmumssmile

Next month is Mothers Day and also my Mum’s birthday.  As she lives in Spain, I’m not always able to give her presents in person.  I’ve often created Mothers Day memories with Truprint and this year will be no different.

I’m a big fan of photo books as a lovely reminder of happy memories shared and have given Mum books before with lots of photos of Monkey taken throughout the year.  It’s a great way for her to see what he’s been up to and to watch him grow.

This year I wanted to do something a bit different and decided to use a few photographs and turn them into a few gifts for Mothers Day for my Mum and also make something for me too!

Mum and I both love jigsaw puzzles so I picked a couple of photos that my friend Galina took of Monkey and I recently, that I love, and had them turned into puzzles. Truprint can turn your photos into three different sizes of puzzle – 7×5″, 10×8″ and 16×12″.  I opted for 7×5″ and 10×8″ and hope she’ll like them as a bit of a novelty.

I know Mum has a few fridge magnets and Monkey is obsessed with them, so I thought they’d also make a lovely little present for Mothers Day from him.

I’m guilty of taking hundred of photos and then not printing any of them out.  I decided to change that and used Truprint’s photo printing service to print out a whole host of Monkey photos covering the last 12 months.

I’d recently been sent a lovely heart-shaped photo frame from Wilko and decided I’d make myself an early Mothers Day present filled with Monkey memories.

I’ll also be sending Mum some Monkey prints for her to add to her album.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Since the change to digital I bet there are billions more photos taken and yet probably a lot less printed.

    Photo books are great ideas, we try and do one for each holiday. Might try truprint next time.
