Your Photos Made Easy with Easy Canvas Prints

As a blogger, I get pretty excited about photos, especially if they are ones I like (or have taken) and can share to enhance the story I want to tell or my blog’s appearance in general. And, now with Instagram and Pinterest, it is even more fun to share the photos we take on a moment’s notice with the rest of the world. Once in a while, I even capture a shot that I wouldn’t mind hanging up in my house – one might even consider it a work of art. Easy Canvas Prints lets everyone turn their treasured photos into works of art. In an easy four step process you can have your photos printed on high quality canvas, professionally stretched and gallery wrapped for a stunning look that anyone would be proud to display.

I recently captured this photo, which I love because the cardinal was my mom’s favorite bird and they will always remind me of her, as they reminded her of her mother, my grandmother.

When Easy Canvas Prints contacted me about reviewing a canvas, I was really excited to give it a try with a photo. Last time I worked with Easy Canvas Prints, I made a text canvas, which I love and it is still hanging on my ‘wall of inspiration’ today.

The Design Studio is really simple to use and you can now upload your photos directly from Facebook or Instagram-

And the art gallery style wrapping options are definitely the most fun to select-

Here is what I decided to create using the Easy Canvas Prints Design Studio-

I’m really happy with how my photo turned out-

The only thing I would caution you is to select an image that is of high quality (the Design Studio will help you with this too). I chose an image that I had blurred for effect on my phone and I was not able to undo the edit so I had to choose a smaller canvas. Mine is an 8 X 8, which fits nicely on an otherwise crowded office wall. The customer service representatives at Easy Canvas Prints are very helpful and patient, and actually contacted me by email before my canvas went into production to let me know 8 X 8 was the largest I should go without losing image quality based on my original photo.

My photo shipped promptly within a week and was well packaged so there was no risk of damage in the mail. It also came with wall mounts so I wasted no time in hanging it!

Easy Canvas Prints are really affordable beginning at around $30 and make great gifts, especially with Mother’s Day, graduations, and weddings coming up this spring and summer. Be sure to connect with Easy Canvas Prints on Facebook  to take advantage of frequent specials and discounts they offer. You can also give back with Easy Canvas Prints Canvas for a Cause.

Happy designing!

Until the next mile marker,

It Only Takes One Insta(gram)nt…

Hello, my name is Sara, and I have an addiction to social media. Step One is admitting it.

Remember when all we had was the old AIM? Does anyone know if that even still exists? Never mind, I probably shouldn’t know. As if onetwo three four five social media platforms were not enough, I now have a sixth one.
Welcome to Instagram. In one instant, I was hooked. 

(Note: Many thanks to my dear friend Julia at Pain, Pride and Perseverance for introducing me to this awesome new addiction! I always wondered how you got such fabulous photos.)
Combined with Picframe and Camera+ (both iPhone apps) there is no limit to what I can create. It’s practically a Blogger’s dream come true.  
So, what better way is there to spend Mother’s Day then playing with photography apps for hours on end?
My mother-in-law has been wishing for a picture of all the family’s dogs to hang on her refrigerator (we got her a magnetic picture frame from Disney World with all of the Disney dogs on it) and our attempts at lining five of them up for a group photo have been less than successful. We’re lucky to get two or three together. Enter Picframe: 
Do you know how long it took me just to get each one?!
Lady is my sister-in-law’s, Grace and Sadie are mine and Mollie and Maggie are my mother-in-law’s. We love dogs, could you tell? I would say Lady was the most photogenic yesterday. Sadie was just plain horrified that I wanted to take her picture?!
Really, Mama?!
My mother-in-law wanted help with her flower beds for Mother’s Day so we spent the afternoon shopping for flowers and planting them. 
Herbs and purple daisies. 

I have decided I love Foxglove!
I also got some herbs for our garden: Orange Mint, Chocolate Mint, Flat Leaf Parsley and Cilantro. I can’t wait to plant them and start using them!

If you’re on Instagram – I’d love to follow you and see your photos too! I am @wordstorunby.
To all the mothers, I hope you had a fabulous day full of family, friends and fun. 
Until the next mile marker,
