Today I'd love to share with you a recent addition to our walls - a sweet canvas of a photo of our children. Over the summer the folks from Easy Canvas Prints contacted me to try out one of their products. It couldn't have been simpler to order a lovely canvas print of a photograph of ours from their website. The 11 x 14 canvas arrived not long after that.
The hardest part about the process was.....choosing a favorite photo of our children! We created a folder on our PC for all our 'potentials' and this image was finally chosen....
It captures a summer day in 2009 when my son was 4 years old, and my daughter was almost 2. It was taken at the nearby park along the ocean, with sailboats off in the distance.
Although the photo doesn't show their faces straight on, it captures the free-spirited fun they were having that day and reminds us how much they love to play together.
One of the tasks on my (long) project list is to make a photo gallery wall up our stairway. This canvas will take pride of place there. Now it's just a matter of collecting more favorite photos for the wall. I think another canvas print would be in our future, especially with the great experience we had with Easy Canvas Prints.
Although my children are not as readily agreeable for photos these days, we do manage to capture some recent fun memories - like our hayride in an apple orchard this past Sunday:
Every day with them is a blessing. :)
