Before creating the RemindsMeOfU gift making website, I was an freelance illustrator who for over 30 years, produced original artwork for magazines, ad agencies and many different corporations all over the United States. ( that is, when I wasn't watching Blazing Saddles for the umpteenth time)
Naturally, being an artist, I have a deep revulsion for "clip art". So would I ever go and get clip art? Mongo no go!
Since I wouldn't use clip art, 
My mind was a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
"I'll create my own", I shouted.! Currently, the RemindsMeOfU website has all over 600 + original images that are artistically designed and beautiful, so that the masterpiece you create, is artistically designed and beautiful as well. 
With our images and some of your own, RemindsMeOfU allows you to create a personalized gift that is as unique as the person you are making it for. You are the artist designing a one-of-a-kind personalized gift, based on all the things that makes your special someone... special!
A personalized gift is the most thoughtful gift you can give. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, look no further. 
Nothing compares to that unforgettable moment when you watch your loved one unwrap the personalized gift you made just for them and see the look on their face as they lay their eyes on that special gift for the first time. Personalized gifts are the perfect way to celebrate special occasions, create new loving memories and to help you show your loved ones just how much they mean to you in a way they’ll treasure forever. 
If any image does seem like just "clip art" ……let us know with a…. "what in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here"

Goofy Grape, Lefty Lemon, Jolly Olly Orange, Rootin Tootin Raspberry, Loud Mouth Lemon and Freckle Face Strawberry. Do you know who these are? They were the clever names of the Pillsbury Funny Face Drink Mixes that we loved as kids.

RemindsMeOfU invites to you to explore over 35 categories featured at our gift making site, and one of our favorite categories is called,"Remember When". This category has lots of nostalgic images from "the good old days". We guarantee that at least one image in the "Remember When" category will evoke such a fond memory for your celebrated sweetheart, that you we definitely want to include it in the collage gift masterpiece that you create for them.

It may be bell bottom pants...remember those? It may be 8 track tapes, roller-skates or the fabulous image of an old drive-in movie!

Whether you want a unique keepsake for a birthday gift, anniversary gift or wedding gift, RemindsMeOfU makes it fun to make the perfect gift. You are the artist. Using your creativity and our huge gallery of artistic images as well as some of your own, celebrate the occasion with a RemindsMeOfU gift.  Showcases all the things that makes your loved one special, and remember the cool retro images in the "Remember When" category.

photo-giftsOn March 10th, 1927, 87 years ago, Fred R. Barnard of "Printers' Ink" understood the power of images. Images communicate! One picture can quickly convey an idea, a sentiment, a feeling and/or an emotion.

Telling a story, or expressing your love for someone with pictures isn't a new idea, but we here at RemindsMeOf U not only embrace that idea, we think we've created the most unique personalized framed gift you'll ever give, using that idea! The next time you want to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, "Don't search the world for the perfect gift. You'll get hugs and kisses and won't go broke using our images and yours" …the fun and extraordinary way…..the RemindsMeOfU way...only at

Onions! I can't stand them, not in any form. Now, before you go off on me, understand that onions are the only food I don't like.
My disgust with these beastly bulbs is so adamant, that I am "known for hating onions".
( doesn't everyone have some food they don't like?)
RemindsMeOfU has an image gallery named "Hated Foods" for just such image. Over 500 images that can visually honor anyone.
If someone you love is celebrating a 41st Birthday, and this person "can't stand cottage cheese", pick the 41 template, and put a "hate cottage cheese" in it.
It's fun, it's different and and it will be the most personalized gift you'll ever give.

The galleries in RemindsMeOfU are filled with over 500 artistic images that I personally created specifically for this gift-giving site.
All of the images are 2 1/4 inches squares and print that way for all the personalized keepsakes.
One of my favorite images that I designed is the fantasy football image.
I, myself, am a fantasy football enthusiast, and hope gift-givers enjoy including it in the
templates used to create your one-of-a-kind keepsake for your someone special.
