Chatty CJ

It's official. Caroline has been babbling for awhile, but now she clearly says, "Mama, Dada, and NayNay (NaeNae?)" for the three most important people in her life. Here is a tiny bit of proof:

CanvasPop {Review}

When we moved into our house last summer, we suddenly had about ten times the wall space as our old home and very little artwork to put up. We have a handful of bigger pictures, but it's amazing how many walls are still so bare 8 months later. (It turns out that there are only so many charcoal drawings of your sleeping husband you can put up before it starts to look weird.) We've been trying to make the house our own little by little, but it's been a slow process. Two kids and two jobs does not equal a lot of free time to decorate.  I've been spending a lot of time window shopping online, but haven't pulled the trigger and made any purchases. I want to make sure I really love whatever I buy and don't rush things. 

Then I heard about CanvasPop and jumped at the chance to turn one of my photographs into a canvas print. I read something recently about how you should only surround yourself with things that make you joyful. If there is one thing I know I will never get tired of looking at, it's my beautiful babies. I chose this one of Nate pumpkin picking at two years old. I love the way his little belly sticks out and think it really captures his sweetness and innocence. It makes me smile every time I walk by it.






I absolutely love the way it turned out. Constructed well, looks great. It even came with the hardware, so I was able to put it up immediately with a couple whacks of a hammer. It's a perfect addition to our playroom and now I want more. I'm not sure if I'll keep this where it is when we get more and the playroom is still a work in progress. This one is 16x24, but we have two more walls in the playroom that are bare and I might go bigger for my next canvas print. I want to get CJ and Nate together in a picture outside this spring.  I'm also kind of obsessed with typography and the idea of custom artwork, so I'm dying to try the Word Art Maker
