Life Casting Mistakes – Top 10 tips to avoid heartache

By Jennifer Morrison | Jun 13, 2016

Top 10 life casting mistakes & how YOU can avoid paying for them. Emotionally & Financially. Impressive Memories prides itself on T.H.I.S. Transparency Honesty Integrity & Skill “I am on a mission to help YOU understand the decisions you need to make, before choosing a life caster. Finding the right person to capture YOUR Impressive Memories”  THIS… Teach what you, the customer, needs to know. How to avoid paying for mistakes – it can be heartbreaking & an expensive mistake. Insight into what to look for & the questions to ask. Satisfaction & a beautiful keepsake that will last a lifetime.     Life casting is my absolute passion – some might say I’m obsessed, I’d wholeheartedly agree. I first discovered life casting back in 2003 when I had my daughter and I invested in a kit to create casts at home. The kit promised me that I’d “create 3 immaculate castings from the comfort of your own home”. The result I got? Three lumps of plaster with things that looked vaguely like toes! Two fingers on a hand One large dent in my bank account I was left disappointed I had expected to see my baby’s beautiful wrinkly toes and her tiny fingernails. I was artistic, I’d watched the instruction video (twice), I had higher expectationsRead more

Thinking about having Jewellery made?

By Jennifer Morrison | Jan 24, 2016

Thinking about having Jewellery made? What should you consider? Investing in personalised, bespoke jewellery is exciting.  Capturing your impressive memories in a piece of jewellery is even better if you understand a little bit about what you are creating.  Getting the results you dream of, and a beautiful, hand made and precious piece of jewellery. Here are some FAQ’s ARE THERE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR FINGERPRINTS? Fingerprints develop at different ages for everyone.  Most babies under 12 months old won’t yet have defined fingerprints, you will capture their little finger imprint but it’s unlikely to have ‘traditional’ swirls.  An alternative is to take a print of a finger nail.  There is no upper age limit either…older children, adults, grandparents – we all have our very own unique fingerprint. CAN MY NEWBORN MAKE ME IMPRESSIVE JEWELLERY? Oooohh Yes!!!!! As soon your little bundle is in the world we can capture hand and foot prints. I need a print of the hands & feet and for this I use a very safe, gentle process to capture the tiniest of details, no messy ink. (These prints are beautiful to add to your baby memory books too). Any age can make mini prints. DO I HAVE TO VISIT YOU IN PERSON TO HAVE JEWELLERY MADE? You are very welcome to make a bookingRead more

Christmas Shopping

By Jennifer Morrison | Nov 30, 2015

Christmas Shopping – Love it or hate it? A few weeks ago I visited Dundee…the plan was to return some boots Id bought online.  It was early November and I thought it would be a nice day out…How wrong I could be!! Driving I don’t mind driving…but I do mind being stuck behind a crocodile row of cars following a tractor, pulling a trailer, never exceeding 40mph…the 25 min journey became 45 mins+ Parking Why did it seem like everyone and their aunt decided to try to park just in front of me? Mini Me asked if people were Christmas shopping…I replied “don’t be silly…it is early November!” Shops Somewhere between parking the car and entering the shops we must have slipped through a time portal…because when we entered the shops there appeared to be a mass panic.  Was it now Christmas Eve? People in Argos were grabbing things and elbowing their way to the back of queues…all I wanted was a soda stream…I was risking life n limb for that, so we left.  There was a gentleman choosing from the “Elizabeth Duke” range of delights who had the hairiest backside I have ever seen…and 90% of it was not inside his jeans…it was not a pleasant sight!!  The image will haunt us forever… Google Maps Having decidedRead more

Lifecasting & Holding Hands…

By Jennifer Morrison | Sep 13, 2014

“The spaces between your fingers were created so that another’s could fill them in” This week a friend contacted me to say there was a radio program I might like to listen to… Radio 4…”Holding Hands“ It really got me thinking… There is something uniquely intimate and comforting about holding someone’s hand. Perhaps because it’s something that begins in childhood – our small hand enveloped in that of other, stronger, larger hands. We associate it with comfort, concern, care. And then, for a while, we abandon it – not holding your parents’ hands is a sign that you have grown up – only to have the joy of rediscovering new shades of meaning in the gesture. I spend a great deal of my time holding the hands of  others…it can be the tiniest hand of a newborn, sometimes only hours old, as tiny and fragile as a baby bird.  Being trusted to dip these little miracles into a gooey, pink bag to take their casts, is great…and in casting terms is one of the most tricky tasks I can be asked to do. The tiniest of details, the minute fingernails…and the terror of un-moulding these little blighters, usually late into the night long after baby has gone home, the results can come out with stunning detail or theyRead more
