Original Article:


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.

Designing a Custom Inspirational Quote Canvas

Personalize Your Baby Photos on Canvas

When a new born baby arrives in the home, you can expect a lot of things to change. I hear that you get less sleep and life starts revolving around your new little roommate. It may be a roller coaster that takes you for a quick ride, so remember to cherish each moment. My father knew this and when my sister and I were born, his video camera and photo camera became extensions of his arms. In my parent’s house, you can find a collection of VHS tapes that are filled with baby footage along with a thick album collection of baby photos. Film photos and videos were the classic ways to document the memories of babyhood in the 80s. Now you can create modern custom canvas prints as a new creative way to express your baby photos!

Inspiration for Baby Photos

I stumbled across some baby photos that really stand out. Sioin Queenie Liao is a freelance artist that is inspired by taking photographs of her baby boys. She creates home made props to put together scenes and uses her baby photos to illustrate a dreamy fairy tale. She uses regular household items such as toys and plain clothes to create these scenes. Her expression of love is really inspiring and I really recommend checking out her website at the following link: http://wengenninwonderland.com/

So this is to all the mothers out there

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed but the mother never. A mother is something absolutely lovely.” -Kim Storozhuk

A Perfect Anniversary Gift

So I haven’t been married for very long. It’s been about half a year since my husband and I said our I Do’s. Some say that lasting marriages are becoming a rarity over the years, like the giant panda, but I have seen evidence in my life that has proved otherwise. My parents and my husband’s parents have been together in a loving marriage for more than 28 years. Although my grandparents are from another time, they have been together for more than 60 years. And they still hold hands and tell each other “I love you.” I remember from a few years ago, even at their ripened age, my grandpa wrote my grandmother a poem and gave her a rose as an anniversary gift. Perhaps showing genuine appreciation is the key to maintaining a caring relationship.

Weed Killer aka Anniversary Gift

In this fast pace modern lifestyle, we might take each other for granted at times and forget to show appreciation. When we are consumed in the everyday grind, maybe we forget to stop for a second and really show the special people in our lives how much we appreciate them. Anniversaries, whether it be a wedding, business anniversaries, or cultural milestones, I believe that it is important to take time to celebrate these occasions. Living a married life, you can sometimes expect the other person to always be there and love you no matter what, and complacency is a dangerous weed that can grow in the corner of the house. So put on some gardening gloves and pull that weed out with a perfect anniversary gift. Like a garden, relationships take some work to maintain and that’s okay!

A Thoughtful Anniversary Gift

Gift giving is a ritual that has been here since the beginning and is a gesture that is an expression of your appreciation of another. Even penguins are known to give each other gifts. When a male penguin finds a special mate, he will hunt the beach for the perfect pebble to give to his love. If the female penguin accepts the gift, they are together for life. Taking some time to write a poem or create a piece of art is the same type of gesture that can make the perfect anniversary gift. With our canvas customizer, you can turn your poem, artwork, or photograph into canvas wall art. Taking the time and designing the perfect canvas is just as thoughtful as picking out the perfect pebble.

Much Love and Thanks!

Design Your Own Family Rules Canvas

custom family rules canvas

So the title of this article is family rules canvases, but rules denotes a sense of conformity rather than a community of collaboration. To more accurately describe this post, I would like to say that the family rules, suggested below, are more like family ideals. With ideals, there is a broader sense on how to evaluate a situation rather than automatically obeying a given rule. A custom canvas can be a decorative reminder that all family members can refer to when judging for themselves what is the positive action to take when interacting with the family unit.

Brainstorming a Family Rules Canvas

When brain storming family rules, the list can get super long with a lot of don’t dos and do lists. It is good to verbally discuss these ideas, but the list may be really long for wall decor. You want the list to be simple so that it doesn’t take 5 minutes to read the whole thing. After brainstorming all the family rules, you can generalize them into family ideals. Here are some to help get you started.

My happiness is your happiness

Laughter is the best cure

Thoughtfulness comes from the heart

Be Thankful

Respect is shared between all no matter now big or small

Designing a Custom Family Rules Canvas

Since there may be a lot of words on the canvas, it is best to choose a simple background of one color, a color fade, or wash. Our design tool provides these types of backgrounds or you can upload an image of your own. To make the canvas more interesting, you can do each ideal with a different font. By varying the font size and type, the look will be more eye catching. Also, make sure that the font color and the background color has enough contrast to really make the letters pop.

A Positive Spin: Family Rules vs. Family Ideals

When presenting ideals such as “Treat others out of love,” or “See each day with grateful eyes,” there is a positive value that actions can be based off of. Ideals help frame a way of behavior that is a productive rather than reinforcing behavior around a negative action. Rules such as “Clean up after your self,” or “Don’t whine” are more like commands that give attention to a bad behavior which needs to be corrected. When the ideal is presented, those little negative actions will correct themselves without having to be laid out strictly as the “don’t do this” style of family rules. Give your family rules a positive spin and seeing it every day on your wall will create a good vibe for the whole family! :)
