My eyes got covered with tears as I saw this.
I mean, wow. I'm speechless. That's incredible, I can't believe it.

How did you do to manage to keep this nostalgic feeling from the picture, into this blanket...?
I just don't know what to say, this is too good for words.

OH. MY. GOSH.

This is gorgeous!  How on earth did you convert that picture to a blanket?  And from color to sepia?!  You must be a genius...  I bet your mom wept tears of happiness when she opened it.  I know I would have.

Oh yeah, and... THIS *ROCKS*!

Wow. The details are amazing! You can honestly tell who they're supposed to be, and i love the sepia tones you used to make it look vintage-y. Honestly breath taking.
This Rocks.
