Canvasing One Year Baby Photo

Owen turned one year last week and, if you know me, it's time for pictures! Before his birthday we dressed him in his cute little outfits and took him outside to take some cute photos and he was so good and of course photogenic.  



This one was my favorite and turned out amazing!  I wanted to have it canvased so when each of our kids turn one, we can have all of their pictures canvased and on our wall.  He's pretty special to us and I'm excited to have this picture hanging in our room.

Here it is on the wall, I love how beautiful canvased pictures are and how big these can get.  Mine was a 16x20 so it could fill up the space on our wall in our room, but they can get up to a 30x40 and you can customize your size as well which is awesome if you have a weird size that you need.


My canvas is from Easy Canvas Prints which (like it's name) was super easy to use their site and quickly send and get my order!  They have so many sizes (and also customized sizes) and when you follow on Facebook you can get connected with their deals and new products!

12 Amazing Chalkboard Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

Here are some more of my Chalkboard Pregnancy Announcements from customers.  I am the owner of Pearl Pear Designs and sell my cute chalkboard digital files to help people make their big announcement.  

Why digital files? For pregnancy announcement customers want it ASAP to be able to take pictures or send announcements to friends and family.  Digital files are sent usually same day so they can make their pregnancy announcement as soon as they want.  I usually just print at home or Staples is by me and starts at 10 cents.

Here is one of my customers with my Chalkboard "Little Baby" customized chalkboard.  This is one of my most popular chalkboards right now to announce pregnancies. Aren't these the cutest pictures!  They even took them themselves and edited online.  I love it!

Trying to get a good photo with your kids, find a cute backdrop or create your own like this one in the leaves.

This Chalkboard pregnancy announcement has a customized last name option which is so cute and more personalized.  I love these humongous blue and pink balloons they used for their pregnancy announcement as well!

Here is the same chalkboard as the first one, they took pictures with the whole family and had kids hold up numbers which I absolutely love!  I love incorporating the whole family, so dang cute.

I love doing customized work and when someone wants something incorporating their work or their ideas I get so excited. You can design your own chalkboard from size, colors, and more, I will send the digital file and you will guide me through any changes that need to be made until it's just right :)

I love how cute all of these kids are with their signs, 8x10 or 11x17 is usually the perfect size for them to hold and pose for pictures.

Love how this little guy is holding his sign and has a cute "Only Child" expiring shirt which you can find in so many places and can add to your pictures.

Airplane Birthday Party decorations and ideas

Guess who had a birthday party? It was so much fun putting O's birthday party together and choosing an airplane theme. I designed and bought this sign from Staples when they had them on sale for $10!  The banner above I cut out planes and clouds from my silhouette and then sewed them together!

Well, I tried applique, not very good at this at all but it made the cutest bib and shirt for his big day.






I absolutely love these wingers and propeller! I made them out of foam and painted and used A LOT of duct tape.

Some pictures before his big day. 


I have taken pictures each month and displayed it as a banner over the fireplace.


My favorite part of his birthday airplane decor! I put his pictures on foamboard shaped like a one, blue tablecloth for a background and cute plane and airplanes from paper.

Transforming our Bedroom

I've been meaning to redo our bedroom and get rid of our floral quilt, boring decor and wall art.  After getting rid of our bedspread (phew that felt great) and replacing it with a light blue quilt, fluffy pillows, and our awesome canvas family picture.

I LOVE how my room has transformed! Our focal point is our family picture which I'll put our initials on each side of it.  It looks great, I haven't printed on canvas before and love how it turned out.  I used Printcopia which has amazing quality and affordable prices and it was super easy to use and get our photo printed and quickly to us.


Here is our picture we used.  I added our initials in the bottom corner then adding our initials on the wall to frame the art will look awesome! I love my little family and couldn't believe we didn't have one photo of us in our room.  


 From our old grandma room now transformed into a trendy and relaxing sanctuary, it is so much nicer walking in and our room feels more put together and represents our family!

Next time I can't wait to use Printopia for decals, acrylic printing, panoramic printing, canvas etc. Here are some of my favorite products they have!
