Our lives and happiness are often based on memories. They can be the reason we are who we are, the background on which our lives are based. What could make a better gift than the preservation and display of happy memories? We offer a variety of ways to do just that - lasting memory gifts made from your photos.

Memory Teddy Bears ~~

A visit to Bellybutton Bears will show you just how a memory can become a treasured bear to display in your home. We can take your fabric, whether remnant of a long ago project or new, or a relative or friends favorite article of clothing and turn this into a memory teddy bear. We have worked with antique silk, aged blankets, many articles of clothing in addition to a variety of fabrics. When possible, pockets, buttons and other embellishments from the original item will be used in the completed bear.

Come on over to the Bear Den!



Wall Hanging is full of memories -- they could be yours!

 This one covers 80 years of life, from childhood in England through WWII, emigration to America, birth of children, homesteading in Alaska, various career moves and retirement, finished off with a family tree on the final 'page'. This one was for our mom, in honor of her 80th birthday ~ YOU can pick the memories and occasion you would like to preserve. Each project is priced on an individual basis, email for discussion.




Mirror, mirror on the wall.......who IS that peaking out at me??

Our latest brainstorm -- looks like a real mirror, it IS a real mirror......but wait, as the light changes, or you move, there is more. There IS something else, a person, a scene, a design. You choose whether you want to preserve a memory [perhaps Mom & Dad's wedding picture for an anniversary gift], a favorite place or activity, or just a lovely design to complement your decor. Maybe you want a ghost in your house? Okay, we'll help! Come on over to Mirrors and check it out.
