Design Your Own Photo Gifts And Pay It Forward

Photo art gifts created from nature's best scenes. Each photo reflects the inspirational beauty of mother nature herself, and my joy of sharing. Sharing and caring run in the family. My youngest daughter does animal rescue. She has loved dogs since she was a little girl.

Her enthusiasm gave me an idea. For a Limited Time

I will donate 50% of all profit from my store to this beautiful dog. My goal is to "Help Lulu Get Her Surgery!"

Meet Lulu!

I may not love animals as much as my daughter. But there are times when one will tug at my heart strings.

Lulu is my daughter's foster and she is in need of surgery. You can read her story at

So if you are looking for the "Perfect Christmas Gifts for that hard to shop for family member" you're sure to find what you're looking for PLUS you'll help a fantastic dog in need.

Design Your Own Unique Gifts

What does all of this have to do with designing your own gifts? I'm glad you asked! Every product in my store has a "customize it" option. Click on it and you will have the opportunity to add text or your own photos to mine. Heck you can even replace my photos with your own if you like.

Remember, 50% of my profits will be donated to this cause. Hurry!!!! This opportunity to help Lulu ends December 31st. Visit Flower Pics 4 You at Zazzle

Nature Observation and Photography

by Brian Mertins

I'm a wildlife tracker, which means I practice the art of finding animals by looking at patterns on the landscape.

Good observation of nature can lead to some really cool wildlife encounters and photo opportunities.
