Canvas Press Giveaway

Lately I have been changing up the house decor and I've moved my sights to the dining room. The dining room that is the first thing you see when you come into my house. The dining room that no longer boasts a chandelier, nor table. It's officially become....the play room. As such, it can be a bit of a messy distraction. I've been thinking about adding a couple bold pieces to the wall that not only say "this is a place of fun", but also "this is a home with some resemblance of style". Last week, my "signature" element arrived.

What can it be??? All packaged so carefully....



"Wow". That was all Shane could say when he saw this incredible 16X20 canvas. Wow is right.  I loved the photos I took of Lydia swinging so much, I headed over to Canvas Press , uploaded a photo and ordered one for the playroom. It look about 3 minutes. What ended up at my door was my own personal masterpiece. I could not believe the quality. And the colors! So beautiful.

I first discovered Canvas Press when working at a high end art gallery. Ever wonder where amazing fine art prints are made? Well, now you know the secret. I also know that Canvas Press is used by professional photographers to get their clients top quality enlargements. But you don't need to go through a professional to access Canvas Press, you can upload your own photos to create incredible gifts. I love knowing that we'll have this canvas forever.


I have been toying with the idea of ordering one of their wall collages for above my bedroom. Maybe a beach scape. This is a great idea if you need to cover a large area of wall space.

I chose to have white sides on my canvas due to the dimensions of my photo, but you can choose to have the photo wrap around the sides, which looks really classy. You can see a nice example of that here.  It is ready to hang straight out of the box. No expensive framing to deal with.


One of you will be receiving a 16x20, 1.5 inch gallery wrapped canvas, just like mine! A $117 value (including shipping).


Want one now? Mother's Day perhaps? Enter code "sentimental15" for 15% off your order! Good through the end of May. 

To Enter:

  • Leave a comment here letting me know what photo you would have made into a canvas, and who it would be for. 
  • For an extra entry, let me know in a separate comment that you are a public follower and/or have my button on your blog. 
  • For an extra entry, let me know in a separate comment that you have facebooked or twittered about this giveaway. 
  • For THREE extra entries, let me know in THREE separate comments that you have blogged about this giveaway. 


I will announce the randomly selected winner on May 7th. Good Luck!!!!!!!

Sugar Mama said...

oooohhh... perfect timing as I'm re-doing a wall in my house and hope to put a canvas there some day. I'm pretty sure I'd have it done of my three kids.... they are at those funky ages (13,11, and 7) so the moments of having them all together in one picture are becoming rare.

Mrs. Hale said...

i would use a picture of my son. like you, i'm learning to use my dslr camera so it would be very rewarding to see my work on the wall.

Not that it matters much (more comments than ever!) but my anniversary is on the 5th (Cinco de Mayo) and this would be a rad gift for my wife. There's a great photo that we took of us and the kids over Christmas that would look great.

Kathleen said...

I'd love to make a canvas of my son on the carousel. His face is pure joy! I'd most likely keep it, or give it to my parents.

PS I love that photo of Lydia. I remember admiring it when you ran it in the post.

What a great idea! I might have to order one for my mom for mothers day, I wonder if I still have time? I think I would choose a photo of my two kids together standing by the front gate in our yard... it is one of my favorites! Actually, I have a baby due in about a month so maybe I would wait and use it on a fun photo of my other two kiddos meeting their new little bro. Not sure, but it is a fantastic idea.
