Almost immediately after moving into the yellow house I discovered I was expecting. I tried to get as much done before the dreaded nausea set in but little was accomplished. I was feeling awful! One project that was put on the back burner was a simple gallery wall in the family room. Happily, the past two weeks the "nesting phase" has kicked in and I finally feel like tackling my to do list.
To create the gallery wall Ryan and I used frames + things we brought with us from the cozy brick house. The one new piece we incorporated was the pretty canvas. The image was captured by the incredibly talented Ryan from You Look Nice Today Photography during our family session a couple of years ago. It's a shot of the grape orchard and house that was once occupied by Grandma and Grandpa Mathews. It's very sentimental and we love it. I was contacted by Photo-Canvas a while back wondering if I would be interested in reviewing their product and knew almost immediately this image would be the one to use. I have to tell you, Photo-Canvas was wonderful to work with. The site was easy to navigate, the canvas arrived quickly, in perfect condition and the service was exceptionally friendly. I also really love that the canvas feels like real canvas material- not at all plastic-y like some canvases I've seen.
We left the configuration of the arrangement open so we can add more favorite images and things as the years go on. I plan to add some sweet baby shots to that right side very soon.
