I’m rather in love with my holiday gift spotlight company – Artifact Uprising. They make the most beautiful products using your own beautiful photos. They are environmentally responsible and the books are made here in the USA (they’re even local for me – from my great beautiful state of Colorado). Read about who they are from their own (beautifully crafted) words:
ARTIFACT UPRISING // inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible / bettered by a community of inspired storytellers / driven by the belief everyone has a story to tell. Tell On.
I just recently ordered (and received) my wedding album (yes, I finally finished it!) and our one year anniversary photo book. I love them- they are beautiful. Plus, I shall also add that their customer service was wonderful and they were incredibly sweet.
Often times when I am shopping for those people very close to me… yet are impossibly hard to buy for one reason or another- photo books and calendars are the perfect solution (particularly when they are your pictures or you customized it). I particularly love the calendar. The calendar is made of Colorado Beetle Kill Pine which has been messing up the Colorado landscape a bit- but looks beautiful in woodcraft projects (like this calendar). I love the uniqueness of the calendar, but it is every bit as useful as any other calendar.
Plus- if you order before December 9 you should get your order by Christmas– so you have a couple days. Also, gift certificates are available if you feel like the act of building the book or calendar would be the perfect gift for someone. :)
