Easy Canvas Prints

Sorry I have been a little slow on getting posts up. I think December will just be slow for me. I need to get my Christmas shopping done before I leave. My husband's family and myself will be off to Idaho for 10 days and there is almost no internet! Anyway, off to get errands done, but I wanted to share this with you! 


So.... I was approached by a company via email to turn one of my photos into a canvas print. Ironically, my husband and I had been talking about this the night before because we still have not put up a single wedding picture in our house. So I decided to go ahead and do it. I was offered a canvas in exchange for a review, but a: I upgraded to a bigger size and paid for the difference myself and b: this review is my own opinion of the product. I was allowed to give any opinion I wanted to and this is mine! :) 

It was SOOO easy! I procrastinated on getting this ordered because I thought it would take me a while to do and I wanted to make sure it was just right... It took me seriously 10 minutes and that included the check out process! I was SO surprised! They really have made it as simple as possible.

It's SOOOO cool! It turns your photos to canvas!

A little story about this photo... On our wedding day we got some BEAUTIFUL photos, but for some strange reason, there are a grand total of 4 pictures (out of 1400) that were JUST my husband and I! All of the other pictures had other people in them. You never stop to think about it on your wedding day! 

Anyway, my friend Jenny from ever whim photographs is a brilliant photographer and I LOVE her style. So within a week of our 2 year anniversary, she graced us with a magical gift - a photo shoot to make up for the pictures we wish we would have gotten on our wedding day. 

So I slipped into my dress (I still fit!) and Hans got in his black suit and down to Point Lobos we went to take some pictures. My hair was down for the wedding except for a ribbon (no, it wasn't crinkled ribbon! haha), but this was the other look I was considering but wasn't sure if Hans would like - the bird cage. So I was thrilled that I got to re-do it! :)

This is one of my favorites from the shoot that day and I just had to have it blown up and put in my craft area. I love that man. 

If you want to check out their Facebook Page, you can click on the link. Apparently if you "like" them you will get 50% off your first order and free shipping! What an awesome deal! 

Thanks for indulging me and for looking at a picture of our ridiculous selves! 

Have a beautiful day!

Such a beautiful picture of you both!! I've been wanting to have a canvas made of a picture of our boys, they are so neat - I think you've convinced me to finally do it! Thanks for the review! Enjoy your trip!

Okay...I'm a sap. I got teary eyed when I saw this picture. I have been married 9 years this month...and we lost all of our wedding pictures. We did not receive them from the photographer. What a great gift!

I absolutely LOVE this picture of the two of you. I remember seeing it on FB before, and it struck me as an incredibly beautiful photo then. Love it, and love you two! Next time you might want to get Spoonie in the picture too :)

BEAUTIFUL photo--I cannot believe that you only have 4 photos of just the two of you!! Sounds kind of like our wedding--well not really...we just have issues with our photographer! We have been married for 5 years and STILL don't have our photos! We paid for 3 photographers (including one that was Princess Diana's photographer)--and only had 1 most of the time! OY! What's up with wedding photographers???

Either way--this is a beautiful photo of your wedding/you & hour husband!
