The Coolest Gift Ever!

My son and daughter-in-law took one of my photos and had it enlarged (24" x 16") onto canvas for my mother's day gift.... is this too cool or what?! I haven't fully decided on its permanent home yet. I think it will go in the living room, but that's one room I still have to redo -- take the border off the wall, repaint, etc. Perhaps by autumn I will get that room redone and then hang this canvas in a special place.

If you're interested in a personal gift such as this, you can have a canvas made at CanvasOnDemand or Zazzle (where I have my photography store). It's truly the perfect gift for the photographer, or a mom, a dad, a sister or brother, a son or daughter (graduation!)... and the list goes on and on.

THANKS JOSH & KRISTIN!!!

  1. What an amazing and thoughtful gift. Much better than a vase of flowers (unless they are wildflowers picked by a 4 year old) or some perfume. I want to get some of my photos of Coach when he was actually coaching and have a collage made for him. That's my goal. I'll check out your photography store and maybe get some ideas.

  13. Hi again, Susan,
    Beautiful horses! You asked about my camera, no, I haven't gotten a new one, mine is from last Sept. after my daughter dropped my other one. #*&@*. I have nothing too fancy, a Canon Powershot, no changeable lenses or anything. Would love to get something fancier, but this will have to work for now!
