I first learned about CanvasPop when I was reading one of my favorite blogs:Welcome To Colleen Richman.com   where people could enter to win  a canvas print of their own from CanvasPop!

Guess who was the lucky winner?

You got it! IT WAS ME!!!

Before I show you the photo I entered and the finished product, let me tell you a bit about CanvasPop.

Before finding CanvasPop I had ordered prints from “the other guy” and I must tell you, my experience with “the other guy” paled in comparison to my experience with CanvasPop. For me, after working with CanvasPop and being BEYOND ECSTATIC with  the entire ordering/creative process, as well as the finished product, “the other guy” has been permanently kicked  to the curb!

The people at CanvasPop make prints that are:

“MADE WITH LOVE”

When my package arrived, just by looking at it I KNEW it was going to be fantastic!

Things I Love About CanvasPop

YOU RECEIVE FREE DIGITAL PROOFS: mind you, I think I received two or three (because I made one change) and the proofs were sent to me in a timely manner.  When I made my change it was made efficiently and correctly with a pleasant attitude as well!

You work with your OWN PERSONAL DESIGNER, you aren’t shuffled around from person to person. When they say that superior customer service is a priority of theirs, they are NOT kidding!

CanvasPop Provides:

The best quality prints in the world at a great price. All hanging hardware is installed on the back of the canvas and they use high quality piano wire and rubber bumpers to protect your wall and they even include the nail! here is a photo of the back of my print:

Now, here is the original photo that I submitted to have made into a canvas print:

It is one of my all time favorites of Dakota. When I sent CanvasPop this photo, there is something else that sets them apart from the rest. They asked me to VERIFY that indeed was MY photo and that I had permission to use it. HOW COOL AND ON THE BALL IS THAT? That was something that immediately impressed me, I was dealing with people who THINK!! What a concept!!!

Here is the finished product, that was resting on our dining room table when I took this photo:

(I inserted the blog name on the right of this photo, they did not…the brown at the bottom is our dining room table), they also removed my blog name from the finished product, which is what I had asked them to do. Here it is hanging on our wall (the colored part in the back is our wall)

I wish you could see it in person to see just how fabulous it is! I did NOT change the color here in any way, I wanted this photo to be as close as possible to what I received, and what I received is A ZILLION TIMES BETTER than how it re-produced on the blog. It is breathtakingly STUNNING in person.

A Blog You Should Follow!

While making my blog rounds, it is always a special treat to run across something (or someone) who is super special, and that is exactly what happened last week when we were reading One Spoiled Cat, a blog that our dear friend Sammy and his loving and gifted Mom Pam, work tirelessly on.

There was an incredible drawing of Sammy that was done  by Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen who is currently working on doing “One Drawing Daily”.  To quote Thomas “I have been drawing and painting and learning every day since the 9th September 2014.” 

With every drawing, Thomas writes about how it was done, the medium used, etc.

Thomas put a call out that if you would like a sketch done, just leave him a comment on his blog, telling him so. Boy oh boy is he ever quick! I left a comment about both of my boys, and I do subscribe to Thomas’s blog, but didn’t know he had done a sketch of Dakota til Pam left a message on our blog.

Here is the incredible sketch he did of my Dakota!!! Thomas captured the sensitivity in Dakota’s eyes just by using a ballpoint pen! Click on Dakota’s photo to read about how it was done and to follow Thomas’s blog and to see all of the other amazing drawings that he has done for many of us! Thank you so much Thomas! I LOVE IT!!!
