Review: Easy Canvas Prints

I am so excited to have the opportunity to do a product review for Easy Canvas Prints.

I was contacted by the marketing department of and agreed to do a review of one of my pictures made into a canvas print.

First please read the following Disclaimer

Disclaimer: Easy Canvas Prints gave me one 8x10 canvas print in exchange for my review. All opinions in this review are my own. No other compensation was provided.

Ok now that that is out of the way here are my thoughts about

The Ordering process:
The ordering process was so quick and easy. From start to finish it was less then 10 min. and most of that time was me trying to decide which picture I wanted to use.

I was given a link that took me directly to the page where you select the size print you want.

If you are ordering from the home page your just a few clicks away. Just click on the Start Your Canvas button then choose one of two options:

Single Canvas or Wall Displays. Easy Peasy!

Next just choose your size (8x8 through 30x40 or you can choose custom size and enter the height and width you want).

Select you canvas wrap thickness (.75" or 1.5"). I will be hanging my canvas on a wall with other framed pictures so I choose the .75" thickness.

Now this next step was the only difficult one for me...uploading an image! Of course the only reason it was difficult for me was because I have so many pictures and I would love to have lots of them made into canvas prints. Once I choose my picture (sunset on Lido Beach) uploading it was a breeze. You can browse for a picture from your computer or choose one from your Facebook or Instagram accounts.

I love this part:
After you upload your picture they have an Image Quality Indicator that tells you immediately if the image you have loaded has the right resolution for a canvas print. If not you can choose another photo.

Just a few more options and you are ready to checkout.

After checking out I received a conformation email with an expected arrival date. Mine arrived 5 days before this date.

The canvas was wrapped in plastic and was packaged so that it wouldn't slide around and get damaged during shipping. As a result it arrived in perfect condition and I love love love it. See for yourself

I love it so much I am going to order another canvas. This time I am going to choose a sunrise picture I took in the Outer Banks, NC.

Thank you Easy Canvas Prints!!!

A Little (Bathroom) Humor to Brighten Your Day!

Leaving Miami for Ft Lauderdale, I decide to stop at one of those rest areas on the side of the road. I go into the bathroom. The first stall is taken, so I go into the second stall. I had just sat down when I hear a voice from the other stall............

"Hi there, how is it going?"

Okay, I am not the type to strike up conversations with strangers in washrooms on the side of the road. I didn't know what to say, so finally I say:

"Not bad............"

Then the voice says:

"So, what are you doing?"

I am starting to find this a bit weird, but I say:

"Well, I'm going to Ft Lauderdale.........."

Then I hear the person, all flustered, say:

"Look, I'll call you back. Every time I ask you a question, this idiot in the next stall keeps answering me!!!"

A Little Humor to Brighten Your Day!

It was late at night and Heidi, who was expecting her second child, was home alone with her 3 year old daughter, Katelyn. Heidi started to go into labor and called 911.

Due to a power outage at the time, only one paramedic was able to respond to the call.

The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Katelyn to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby.

Very diligently, Katelyn did as she was asked. Heidi pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born. The paramedic lifted him by his feet, and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Katelyn for her help, and asked the wide-eyed 3 year old Katelyn what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Katelyn quickly responded, "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. Spank him again."

Some Truths We Can Tell Ourselves

Here are some truths we can tell ourselves to remember who we are:

I am the daughter of the Most High God.

I am loved, redeemed, and renewed.

I am chosen, blameless, and holy.

I was bought at a great price.

God knows me thoroughly and yet loves me completely.

He has plans for my future that include hope, not harm; blessings, not banishment.

I belong to Him.
