Easy Canvas Prints Review!







Easy-to-order canvas prints of your very fave picture. Or you can order some of the premade art on their website. I was given a free 10 x 8 inch canvas print in exchange for an honest review on this blog. See, I won't lie to you about the product, because if I write a scathing review, I won't have to give my free stuff back. Bwa ha ha haaaa.

Seriously, I really had A LOT OF FUN doing this and I think it turned out ab-so-lutely gorgeous. I spent an entire afternoon posing all my Polish pottery this way and that way, taking pictures from odd angles, adding props, taking props away, loading pictures and finding tons of *glare* on the pottery, and so on. I even had Patrick come in and be a consultant. Red accents? His idea. I rummaged about and found a cloth napkin. Cranberries for some reason did NOT work with this picture. Neither did patterned curtains. It was tacky.

*

But finally, I had a picture I thought was something I'd really cherish. I wanted to go for a "formal but casual picnic look." Do you love it?

*

Here's the process I went through to order:

*

I downloaded the picture from my camera stick thing onto the computer. From there, I got onto the Easy Canvas Prints website, selected the size print I wanted, and downloaded the picture. It gives a preview, and you can choose to continue the picture down the sides of the frame or just choose a colour, or leave it blank. I chose a dark brown just because I thought it looked nice with the picture. I tried several colours and periwinkle I think looked the most horrid. You have to love the preview feature because it can save a lot of heartache later.

*

Even considering that I ordered before the Fourth of July weekend, I got my canvas within about a week. I took a picture of it from all sides so you can see how it arrives, all ready to hang. The first picture has a lot of glare because it is still in the plastic wrapping.

*

Because I took the original picture against my wooden panelling, and later hung the resulting canvas against the wooden panelling, it all just goes so perfectly. I would honestly recommend taking a look at the website if you are at all interested in hanging a personalized canvas. If you take a picture in the room in which you'll hang the canvas, it will match pretty closely.

Thank you, Easy Canvas Prints! :)

  1. I LOVE your picture!!
    It looks perfect against the panelling and the brown edge is just right, looks like shadow, just as it would on a framed image.
    I can do a similar thing here by putting images on a usb stick then going across the road to Officeworks (a huge office stationery store with printing facilities) and loading it into one of their big printers, then choosing type and size of print etc. I've been thinking about doing it with a series of roses and daisies photos that I took several years ago. I think they would look good around the walls of my bedroom, with the first being the bud and the last being the full-blown rose.
    I'm just not sure how much it will cost me for 5-6 canvases.

  3. Now that is COOL. You really did a good job. The red worked out nice, too. Added depth, or something.(Imagine I know a thing about art--ha!)

    The possibilities are endless, because you could take any picture and doll it up with that picture changy thingy we have on our Hp printer software. AND make an ART PRINT out of it.

    Cool...Thanks, will check out link.

  4. That came out so nice!!! I love it! I also like where you put it. Patrick was right, the red accent is nice, kind of makes the whole thing pop. Gorgeous!

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
