REVIEW: My Kids Are a Work of Art!

I have always known it and now I can prove it! Look:





I was really excited to get the opportunity to review a photo canvas from Easy Canvas Prints. I have seen them all over the web and have wanted one of the children for a long time. I played around on the site for a long time checking out the options. I knew I wanted a photo of the kids on the canvas but when I saw some of their art prints -- like Painted Background and Weeping Willow Sunset -- I almost changed my mind.



When I finally started to actually create my canvas it was pretty quick and easy. The hardest part was probably the decision of which wrap option to select, which is admittedly a little silly. I played around with the color options and decided to go with the color picture since it would be sitting on the piano.



I received the canvas quickly and it really is as cute as I expected. I want more. (I am still considering that Painted Background for above my couch!) My picture above has a bit of a glare on it that I didn't expect since I don't notice a glare when I look at it. In all it's a cute work of art with my kids shining faces on it. Perfection!



I put a button/link in my sidebar [over there --->] so you can go visit them for yourself. If abstract art isn't your thing, they have a lot of different art prints -- vintage, landscape, floral, you name it! But don't forget you can upload your own photo of your pets, your kids, your car, whatever. How can you go wrong with a photo of your own personal works of art?

DISCLOSURE: I was provided with an 8x10 photo canvas from Easy Canvas Prints for this review.

Overheard During Housework

[Singing]


There's a baby,
A beautiful sister
A beautiful baby sister and she's mine

I fell in love
When I first saw her
And now she's the greatest sister in the world!

First Day of School 2011



Today is the first day of school.

Kyle is in 8th Grade,
Katie is in 3rd Grade
And Mari started Pre-Kindergarten.

They were all excited and happy to get to school...
I cried all the way home.




For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways ~


Psalm 91:11 [NASB]

Mari's Busy Week

I think Mari feels like she's had enough attention to last her awhile this week. Yesterday she had her cervical spine xrays to rule out any instability in her neck. We are praying the word is good when we get the results in the next week or so.


But I want to talk about today.


TODAY IS AUGUST 12.


That means TODAY is the TWO YEAR anniversary of when we finally got to hug our littlest girl. Today is a day we'll always be thankful for.


Happy "Gotcha" Day, Mari Kay!

My, Don't The Summer Days Fly?

Wondering where I've been?


With these guys:

At the library, at the park, on the swings, all over...


We only have a week and a half before school starts. For ALL THREE of my babies.


Not sure I'm ready for this.
