So back in January I think I made some sort of promise to blog more often. Clearly that has not happened. I find when I actually have stuff to write about (ie training, vacations, life in general), that’s when I’m too busy to blog. Or when I decide to live my life instead of write about it.
Since I last blogged I’ve started tri training again. I’m still slow at all 3 sports but I’ve seen some improvement, especially in the pool. What I’ve found most frustrating is trying to fit in training around my work schedule – my town doesn’t have a pool so I have to drive 25min to get to one, and trying to coordinate that with work, etc is bogging me down. But I press on!
On another note, we are continuing to make changes to the house to make it more ours. We desperately need to paint our bedroom (it is an obnoxious shade of bright green) and there are some flooring changes we want to do as well. We have, however, been pretty good about getting stuff up on our walls. This is a surprise as our last house’s walls remained unadorned for a lot of the time we lived there.
I had the opportunity to review a canvas from Easy Canvas Prints and I jumped at the opportunity. You can never have enough things on your walls, right? (Okay, yes you can, I do know this.)
The hardest part was deciding what photo to use. Shawn and I settled on a photo from our last trip to Alberta. It is of the mountains at Moraine Lake, also known as the “Twenty Dollar View” as these are the mountains that appear on our $20 bill.
The rest of the process was super easy. Select the size of the canvas (ours was 8 x 10) then the wrap thickness (so how deep you want the canvas to be). Next we uploaded the image and decided on image wrap, so our picture actually continues onto the sides of the canvas. It makes it feel more 3D like, at least to me. After some other editing options, add to cart and you’re done!
Here is our finished product:
Shipping was fast and inexpensive as well. Now that we have one I’m trying hard to not put all of our photos onto canvases!
Thanks again to Easy Canvas Prints for the opportunity and the fabulous product!
