I knew right away that I wanted to do some kind of collage or mosaic because like I said, I have a lot of pictures and choosing just one proved much too difficult. Uploading my pictures on CanvasPop was easy because I was able to like my Instagram (or Facebook) account in just a click (since I was already logged in on my computer).
I started off with a few of my favorite fun shots of the kids. A few turned into over 50 and I finally had to cut myself off and whittle it down to 36. I knew my canvas was going to be 20×20 inches and the pictures wouldn’t be too small on a canvas that size. I ended up doing a mosaic so the order of the pictures was completely random. That was probably the best choice for me because I probably would have spent way too much time second guessing how I had them all placed. This way was totally easy and from start to finish my canvas project took only mere minutes to create. I’m all about quick and easy projects these days! I can’t be taking up an entire nap time just to complete one task, so this was perfect for me.
My CanvasPop mosaic arrived so quickly- I was surprised! I had a big box sitting on my porch within a week of placing my order. Very impressive for a custom order. My canvas was packed up safely and it was beautiful!
I have to admit- I was super impressed with the quality of CanvasPop’s canvas print. I had a canvas done a while back from a big chain retailer (who shall remain nameless) and I was a little disappointed. I had even used a very large, exceptional quality, professional photo for that canvas (I’m talking over 5,000 pixels) and it still looked blurry to me. A lot of the details were lost when viewed up close, and it seemed cheap looking to me.
My family oohed and ahhed over the CanvasPop canvas for while right after I unboxed it. There are so many fun memories on it! That’s what I love- these are not staged, dressed up pictures I captured. They are fun, spontaneous, day-to-day pictures I snapped quickly on my phone or iPod, so they really capture the real moments from our lives. There’s the first picture I ever snapped of Harper in the hospital, Lily playing in the snow, Ayden outside walking around being Batman, all four cousins together on Christmas, Lily feeding Harper her first bottle, a very pregnant me & the kids at a birthday party, daddy with all the kids at the park while on a road trip, etc. Even our big fat cat Muffin is in a few of the pictures, which made the kids giggle like crazy. She’s a part of our crazy family too.
As for the quality of this one- it’s really nice, very sturdy, and looks stunning. You can really tell that this was handmade (see the sticker?) CanvasPop thought of everything, and even provided all of the hardware to hang it- including a nail. Seriously awesome!
