There are more than a half-billion gift giving occasions each year.
Are you ready?
Every year in the United States, two million couples get married and four million babies are born.
Then there are milestone (and regular) birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
Also there are important religious ceremonies such as Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs.
Chances are, you're invited to at least one of them.
Maybe you already have one on your calendar.
But you have a problem.
You want to give a gift.
Not just any gift.
You want to give a Very Important Present - something unforgettable.
Because someone very important to you is celebrating something special - such as becoming a Bar or Bat MItzvah.
I solve this for you.
I create meaningful modern keepsakes that keep people deeply connected to the joyous memories of their ceremonies and celebrations.
You get the thank you note that says, "OMG this is so beautiful, it is the best gift ever."
They get a personalized gift that is appreciated now and will be cherished forever.
You know, this is something that you might make yourself if you had the time and the supplies and the motivation....oh, you know you won't do it yourself, so let me do it for you!
Whether you are hosting your own celebration
or invited to share in someone else's occasion,
a celebration keepsake
is one of the best gifts you can give.
People don’t remember who gave them their coffee pot or their towels or the gift certificate to Amazon.
But everyone remembers who gave them the celebration keepsake that keeps them connected to the
joyful emotions of their milestone occasions and reminds them of how special they are.

On a scale of 1-10, I give Carol a 15!
I have used Carol Colman's services twice now, each time I am highly satisfied with the products. On a scale of 1-10, I give her a 15. The first time I used her service, it was for a wedding invitation for a close friend of mine. The theme of the wedding was wine and vineyard. With her artistic skills, Carol brought out beautiful aspects of the wedding invitation and blended all components of the wedding theme into the design. The wedding couple loved my present that Carol created!
The second time I used Carol's service was also for a wedding invitation for another close friend of mine. The wedding invitation had a Chinese theme with the double luck symbol and a design created by the wedding couple. Again, Carol expressed her creativity in this piece of art. The keepsake was lavishly cultured and gracefully presented. It was another hit! Not only was Carol creative in her design, she was very pleasant to work with. I was closely involved in the designs of the two keepsakes to bring out the personalities of the wedding couples in the design. The combination of beautiful keepsakes and excellent service makes Carol Colman Creations the best on my list. I would use Carol's services again and again and again!
This is literally the only gift I can remember...
I have two daughters who both display their Carol Colman Bat Mitzvah invitation collages as the centerpiece of art in their room. My older daughter received one from two families who got together and gave it as a joint gift. I’m not kidding when I say that we had 150 people at the Bat Mitzvah, and that is literally the only gift I can remember her getting, and who gave to her. I was so impressed with my older daughter’s collage that when my younger daughter became Bat Mitzvah, I urged her two aunts to get together and give a Carol Colman keepsake as her gift. The quality of both pieces is unique, professional, and gorgeous. It is a way to immortalize the beauty of the occasion in a lasting piece of art, instead of saving an invitation in a cardboard box in the attic. If you are looking for a unique gift to give, or if someone asks you what your child might like as a gift, a gift from Carol Colman Creations is truly the best answer!!
"The most meaningful gift I received. I will cherish it forever!"
When my son was reviewing his Bar Mitzvah gifts he told us 'the collage of my invitation is the most meaningful gift I received. It is so personal and special. I will cherish it forever!' My husband and I thought the framed keepsake was beautiful and special, but for a 13-year old boy to choose this as his favorite gift over money, gift cards and sports equipment really says a lot. Thank you, Carol Colman, for creating such a wonderful, heart-touching gift!
Even the party planner went wild!
My family and I went wild over the framed invitation – (and so did my party planner!). It’s gorgeous. What a perfect keepsake! Carol Colman Creations, you’re the best!
The keepsake we received was by far my daughter's favorite gift!
Her mouth dropped when she opened it. I really like how you used the back of the invite, the stamp, the flap etc. It is the best memory of her perfect Bat Mitzvah day!
We highly recommend Carol Colman Creations.
Carol Colman Creations is my go-to gift when I want to give something unique and meaningful that I know will be treasured for a lifetime!
Carol captures that special event in her artwork and is an absolute joy to work with. Carol created a spectacular work of art for my mother’s wedding and it’s a cherished keepsake. Carol also made a celebration keepsake for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah that is absolutely PERFECT. My daughter loves, loves, loves it (me too!). It is hanging in her room already and it’s the first thing she sees when she walks in.
I’ve had her create a number of wedding and Bar/Bat Mitzvah collages that were fun and fabulous just like Carol. So I leave the imagining to Carol and I rest assured that my gifts will always be a big hit! ”
I gave the collage to my niece and her husband for their first wedding anniversary and they didn't just like it - they loved loved LOVED it.
Everyone who saw it loved it. There was such an elegance about it. No one had seen anything like it. It's the perfect gift - great for when you don[t know what to give someone. And it was done early, which was great. I'll be calling Carol to create another fabulous keepsake next time I get an invitation.
No matter what the occasion - a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah; a wedding, milestone anniversary, or birthday - a great event begin with a great invitation.
A great invitation captures the personality of those being celebrated and reflects the spirit of the occasion they are celebrating.
Shouldn't something so meaningful be framed and on display where you can enjoy it every day?
Maybe you have an automatic response when you're invited to an event - you write a check, or choose something from a registry.
But what if you want your gift to have a lasting impact?
To stand out and be admired for originality and thoughtfulness?
Perhaps it's time to rethink your alternatives.
Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!
"You have days to remember. I want to help you remember the joy of those days."

Carol also has hands-on experience and training in the tools and archival techniques of framing artwork.

Right now, Carol is knee-deep in art supplies, creating breathtakingly beautiful celebration keepsakes that get the "OMG it's gorgeous" reaction from givers and receivers. She and her husband Steven are debating whether to get a shelter dog or a purebred puppy as they adjust to their daughter Zoe living in Washington, DC.
