2015 is coming to a wrap! It is mid-November and you are enjoying your sweaters and a warm cup of tea. And before you know it, the Christmas tree will be up and everything will feel a little cozier. It’s a special time of the year when you get to look back at all the awesome things that you have done. Maybe you are reminiscing about the trip that you took to the Bahamas or the new niece that was born. Or this was the year that you graduated from high school and you started the next part of life adventuring to a new city to study in a collage. Whatever the events may be, I am sure that you have some special pictures that could be turned into a lovely photo canvas.
With all of the new picture taking technology that has been popular this year from the updated iPhone cameras to the new Go Pro to the drones, our personal picture collections are stuffed with memories. But if you really think about it, there are probably a couple pictures that you can pick out of a selection that really capture a special day or event. That one special photo that sums up all the great memories is the one that would definitely look the best as a photo canvas.
Simple and Sleek
A great thing about a photo canvas is that you don’t have to frame the canvas. They are well made, as the canvas is stretched onto a wooden frame. This gives the image some dimensions and defines the image that is hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk. The look is very simple and sleek, which gives it a modern look. This makes it an easy piece to add to any home or office.
Memories and Moments
Capturing a special moment or photograph of someone is easy nowadays with the technology we have available literally right at the end of our own fingertips. Before, creating a photograph was a tedious task of carrying a large camera, hoping that the perfect moment was captured, and then developing the picture before we got to see exactly what was even captured. Back then, photos really came to life through a camera. Nowadays, they often stay as a digital file saved in our computers and phones. Making a photo canvas print is a modern way to bring your pictures to life so that you can share with friends and family… beyond your phone or Facebook!

Each comic would say “love is…” and then have a short saying such as, “reading each other as a book.” This concept can make for great gift ideas. With a photograph of a couple, you can create your own version of what love is. The example above is one that I made for my cousin’s bachelorette party gift.

My grandma said it would also make a great post wedding gift with photos of the bride and groom.

I have a cousin that went from a college drop out to a business owner that was featured on Forbes magazine. Just a few years back, I remember him being the kid that gets ready to go to out by rolling out of bed in his gym shorts, throwing on a wrinkled t-shirt, and stepping into the nearest flip flops. Now he is a business owner of Big Fish Presentations, a successful marketing production company that has had so much growth within the past few years. So I observed his new lifestyle and I saw clues on how he kept himself motivated. Around his apartment were Post-it notes everywhere reminding him of his goals, accomplishments, and inspirational quotes.
Inspirational Quotes and Motivation
Sometimes it can be hard to get motivated merely by the light shining through the window on your to-do list. Motivation fueled by having a list of goals is sometimes just not enough. Researchers did studies and they found out that the most potent source of motivation comes from emotions. But of course, you probably didn’t need a scientist to tell you that. This is because emotions come from passion, and that is a genuine source of motivation. So listen to your gut feeling, and through that, you will know what is right for you. Then motivation will follow. It always helps to come across pick me ups in forms of inspirational quotes. A photo or an inspirational quote on the wall can be a simple reminder of what fuels you.
