I love my cats so stinkin’ much it hurts. I never would have thought two furry little animals would steal my heart so completely, but I’m glad they did. Crazy cat lady? You betcha!
I’ve taken a bazillion pics of them, but it never occurred to me to do anything other than look at those pics (all the time) until I browsed through all the CVS Photo gift options. You guys, personalized photo gifts are so fun now!
If you love your pets as much as I love mine (or you know someone who does), listen up, because I made some serious cuteness out of a few of my favorite pics, and if you do something similar for a gift idea, you might just make someone cry (in a good way).
The first thing I did was make a cell phone case with my sweet little Pinot’s face on it, and now she goes with me everywhere. She was a silver kitten when I got her, but now she’s turning into a brownish gold-colored cat. The heck?
You can see how much Pinot’s fur color has changed below. The little brown peanut was sitting with her adopted older sister, Tia, and I couldn’t resist capturing the moment for all eternity on a deck of playing cards, because yes, that’s a CVS photo gift option too! (Both portrait and landscape orientation work.)
I also took my cats’ pretty faces and had them made into these adorable 5 x 5-inch canvas minis. They can be propped up with the included stands, or since they’re so nice and lightweight, they could be mounted to the wall with removable tape.
I’m dead with love.
And since I literally can’t get enough of my cats, I designed a desk calendar starring Pinot, Tia, and my daughter’s cat, Mony. I’ll be able to laugh at their antics just by glancing at the calendar each and every day. A year’s worth of shenanigans!
My heart melts.
Making the desk calendar is the perfect example of the CVS Photo personalization options. The variety of available products each have project templates with multiple style options to ensure you’re designing your photo products just the way you want them. Photo your way!
For instance, with each month I had the option of inserting multiple photos, choosing frame colors, or even including captions if I wanted.
But my favorite part of the whole shopping experience was the convenience, and when I say convenience, I mean it! You can use the photos from your camera roll or Facebook account and order directly from the CVS Pharmacy app. (Of course, if you’re shopping in your local CVS pharmacy, you can use an in-store KODAK Picture Kiosk to order your photos.)
I selected and designed all these personalized photo products (all cats, of course) on CVS.com/photo and had them all shipped directly to my home. You don’t have to go to the store to order them or pick them up, you guys!
Photo gifts aren’t what they used to be, y’all. CVS Photo makes it so convenient to create unique, affordable and high-quality photo products for any occasion. Photo your way!
