CanvasPop Digital Print Giveaway

CanvasPop generously provided me with a framed print for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Hi y’all! Time is flying by so quickly, I didn’t even realize it had been almost a month since I blogged last. I also feel like I just shot baby girl’s 3 month pictures like a week ago…but no. We’ll be doing 4 month pictures on Saturday. That whole “long days, short years” thing is so real! 

canvas-pop-giveaway-lucyLucy hasn’t had any professional photos taken since we left the hospital. Most newborn photographers in our area have packed schedules and want you to book with them months in advance. Since we only knew about our girl 24 hours before we got to meet her, that wasn’t really an option. I’m sure we could have found someone to help us out, but I decided to save ourselves a little time and a whole lot of money by shooting her photos myself {with the help of some newborn photo tutorials found on Pinterest}. 

I was actually quite thrilled to capture some really great shots of out tiny cutie. I was so anxious to display them on the wall and quickly ordered some prints from the photo department of the drugstore down the street. I was definitely disappointed in the print quality, and they came out a bit darker than they actually were. 

canvas-pop-printEnter the friendly folks over at CanvasPop. CanvasPop specializes in high quality photo prints and canvases. They take your photos and turn them into art….even your Instagram and Facebook photos! 

I ordered one of Lucy’s photos in a 16×20 framed and matted print. It was an exciting day when it arrived! I was so impressed with not only the quality of the printing, but also the frame itself. It was as if I had a custom frame made. It was ready to be hung with gallery quality piano wire. They even include the nail! {bonus!}. I highly recommend CanvasPop for your photo printing needs.

Everything You Ever Wanted {Review & Giveaway}

I was give a copy of this book to review. Affiliate links are included.

I love to read. I used to be a night owl {now, I would kill to be in bed asleep by 9:00} and I would stay up late reading. Nancy Drew…The Babysitters Club….Little Women. You name it! In more recent years, I’ve gotten out of the habit of being a ravenous reader. All of that adulting business has gotten in the way. I’ve really missed it, so I made a goal this year to read 12 books. That may seem like a small goal to many of you, but 1) It’s a lot more than I read last year, and 2) New baby in the house, y’all. 

So, with limited reading time these days…I’ve been a little extra picky about what I’m reading. I needs to be something that is really good and will lock me in. Everything You Ever Wanted by Jillian Lauren is just that book. 

EYEWCOVERI’m all about non-fiction and love a good memoir. Jillian Lauren has the most interesting and captivating life story. The tagline for her blog is “From member of a harem to a member of the PTA. Yes, really.”. While her previous memoir, Some Girls, covers her life in a harem, this book picks up where she meets her husband, bass player from the band Weezer. Lauren then goes on to tell the stories of losing her best friend to drugs, their struggle with infertility, their journey to adopt their son from Ethiopia, and even their struggles to parent a child with special needs. 

DSC_3351-3275222647-OJillian Lauren is beautifully honest with her story. This is a story of second chances. Even if you yourself have not adopted or become a parent, you will find something that you can identify with. Upon finishing, you will feel the hope of overcoming any struggle or obstacle. I highly recommend this book! 

How would you like to win your own copy? I’ll be giving away one copy of Everything You Ever Wanted to one lucky winner. Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. Giveaway ends May 11th at midnight.
