ArtToFrames Custom Photo to Canvas Review

I recently had the great pleasure to receive ArtToFrames Custom Photo to Canvas to review for a deep discount. I can not tell you enough how much I love this product. I received the 16 x 20 size and was able to upload any photo that I wanted. I chose a pic of my two daughters that I really love from their school. 

The process was very easy on Amazon to order the canvas. You just upload the photo you want and adjust the size and orientation of the image. Amazon then shoes you a proof before you head to checkout.

I ordered the canvas on a Monday and received it by Thursday. I was super surprised by how fast the canvas was shipped. When I received the package it was delivered in excellent condition, you could tell that they really care about the product that they are shipping.

I was blown away at how nice the image looked on the canvas when I took it out of the packaging. My Mom and daughters were also with me when I opened the package and everyone was so happy with how it turned out.

We immediately took down another frame that we had up and replaced it with the canvas. I love the fact that it does not have any frame to it, the lack of frame really brightened up the room. I would recommend this company to anyone interested in this kind of wall art for your home. I know I will be using them again.

If you are interested in purchasing a photo canvas for yourself, below is a link to this product on Amazon. I do receive a referral fee for purchases made through this link. This does not affect my review all my opinions are honest and completely my own.

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 Fabric Samples Review sent me a few free samples of their fabrics in-exchange for an honest review. I'm always looking for new places to buy quality fabric, so I thought this might be interesting. 

The samples were delivered quickly and in excellent condition. I had requested the purple and they included the other 5 samples. All the fabric samples are true to the color that you see on their website The prices for 1 yard of fabric starts around $7 which is not super low, but the quality is better than most discount fabrics. I know I'll be looking at this website for my next project. #fabric

In the meantime, if any of you have ideas for what I could create with these samples, leave me a comment. My brain is kinda fried getting ready for our house renovation.

KoolAid Easter Eggs

I have been seeing Kool-Aid Dyed Easter Eggs all over Pinterest for the past month. Since I have two little ones and last year when we dyed eggs with food coloring our hands were dyed for many days, I thought this would be worth a try. 

This was a very inexpensive way to dye eggs as well. The packets cost me 3/$1 and you do not have to use vinegar just water. I gathered my supplies and my Mom hard boiled the eggs, we were ready to go.

We decided to try yellow (lemonade), red (cherry), blue (raspberry lemonade), purple (grape), orange (orange) and green (a mix of the yellow and blue).

The only one we were a little bit disappointed by was the purple, it looked more like black than purple. The experimental green one even turned out pretty.

My 4 year old was really into it and my almost 2 year old had fun doing this too, she just had a hard time waiting for the eggs to soak. The only one who got anything on their hands was my 4 year old and it came off very easily with soap and water.

I think that this is going to be our new way of dying eggs in the future, or at least until my daughters are old enough to care about getting dye on their hands.
