      We made one once for my in-laws. They were, of course, totally thrilled.

      We made a family photo calendar for my parents and in-laws several years ago. Long after the calendar was out of date, they kept the calendar for the photos. It was fun to do and very much appreciated. Making homemade photo calendars for holiday gifts is a great idea! Blessed.

      Very fun to do. I made a photo blanket for my Mom last Christmas. Still to this day she just loves and raves about it.
