I love photography and filling my house with personal pictures that I have taken.  It makes me happy to surround myself with pictures of milestones in my life such as my wedding, my children being born and first birthdays.  Although my traveling days are now few and far between, I loved taking pictures of the places my husband and I have traveled and lived in our child free days!  Even if its to a local landmark or beach, my husband and I still try to get out of the house and explore as much as possible.  One of my favorite places to go is Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island.  As soon as we make the initial decent over the bridge into Sanibel, I immediately feel relaxed and in vacation mode, even though we are only miles from home.  The lighthouse on Sanibel is such a landmark to anyone farmiliar with the area.  When Canvas Lifestyle agreed to do a review of their products, I immediately knew what picture I would use – the Sanibel Lighthouse.

When the box arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it was packaged and it arrived in pristine condition.  The canvas print looked even more amazing then I imagined it would be.  I chose the 16″x24″ Gallery Wrapped stretched print.  The picture I selected was already in sepia tone and the color was warmer and more vibrant than the original file had been.  I hung the print on the wall in my entryway and it fits in perfectly with the rest of my beachy decor.  And everytime I look at it, I get a warm, happy feeling thinking about all the wonderful memories we have had in Sanibel!

The Canvas Lifestyle website is easy to navigate through and walks you step by step through the ordering process.  The canvases can be ordered as small as 8″x8″ up to 60″x40″.  They offer five different layouts – square, portrait (vertical), landscape (horizontal), panoramic (wide) and 3 panel splits.  Print effects can be added at no additional charge.  The six unique effects include black and white, sepia, pop art, oil painting, pencil drawing or 4-in-1 (which showcases 4 of the same picture in one print).  The canvas comes either rolled, standard stretch (.75in thick) or gallery wrapped stretched (1.5in thick) with a standard border (with the picture extending over the border) or canvas colored.  The prices start as low as $9 and ship for free through Fed Ex Ground in as little as 1-2 days!
