~I'm back and I have a project for you!~


Hello!
I tried to write this post a few minutes ago and my photos weren't showing up, so trying again....
I first wanted to thank all of you that sent me emails and left me comments regarding my "time off"
It's really nice to know that prayers were being sent out from all over.
Now, onto this little project!
My friend and I were driving down the road the other day and talking about these free canvas'.
My friend came up with the idea to order them and then when they arrive to embellish them with glitter, bling, or just about anything.
I thought this was genius, and immediately made me think of my friend Rhonda Addison's gorgeous artwork.


 So, the first thing I did was hop on the Graphics Fairy blog.
She has endless vintage photos that would work great for this project.
I saved the images to my computer and then downloaded them to canvas people.
 I can't wait till they arrive so I can start embellishing them.
I am going to add some faint color to the black and white ones....
 and little bits of glass glitter to the others.





Now, I am off to go order more while this FREE offer still stands!
xoxo

I'm glad I'm not the only one cursing out blogger this morning. I don't know why, but all pics are being set to height="0" and width="0". You need to click on the Edit HTML tab, scroll down to where each pics HTML code is and delete both the height and width parameters, trying to change them won't work, they'll just zero out again when you hit compose. After you've deleted those lines in each pic HTML, then hit Compose, and you should see your pics. They'll be huge, but huge is better than non-existant.

Forgot to comment on your actual post. Love CanvasPeople. I ordered one as a Christmas gift, and need to place an order for some more during the free offer. Can't wait to see yours.

Love CanvasPeople! I need to order me a couple more anyway!
BTW stopped in at Ruffles and Rust yesterday, it is every bit as lovely as you say! Can't wait to go back and pick up a few things after our move. Yesterday was Mommy's free day so I got to do all the window shopping I wanted without interruption!

What a great idea! So...are you going to order random scenic photos instead of an actual photograph of a person? I may have to try this with you! Glad you are back and I hope you have an awesome week! I have a fun giveaway going on! I would love for you to enter!
