CanvasChamp! Placing Your Memories on Canvas #ad

I remember, years ago, carefully taking “well thought out” pictures.  Back then we used our trusty point-and-shoot film cameras with 110 film cartridges!  Developing our pictures didn’t exactly cost an arm and a leg but it wasn’t free either.  What was upsetting was the fact that we would have to pay for our developed pictures whether they turned out or not!

Since the coming of the digital cameras, we first laughed at the ability to take pictures that we could see before developing.  It took a while before we realized that we didn’t actually have to develop any of the pictures at all!  Instead all we had to do was save them on our hard drives.  The downside was; more often than not, once saved we ended up forgetting them!  How sad.  What’s the point of taking all those pictures if you can’t even enjoy at least one?

I recently was given the opportunity to receive a 16″x20″ canvas print from CanvasChamp! and that meant having to select one picture out of the several thousands I have saved.  Once selected, all there was left to do was to start my order.  Fortunately my daughter just came back from her week-long cruise to the Caribbean and took so many lovely pictures!  One stood out and that’s the one we ordered.  Look at our print proof:proof-66339It was a simple process:  upload a picture, and customize it under the Custom Canvas Prints at CanvasChamp!

There are a variety of styles and sizes to pick from so make sure to take your time selecting what is right for you.  The steps are simple enough but you can always talk to a live person if you need any assistance with your order.  They offer free standard shipping on all orders over $149, and they even ship out of Canada too.  You can order without any worries because their work is 100% quality guaranteed ~ Any errors in material, design or printing will be fully refunded or re-produced and shipped with no additional cost to you. Don’t forget to use one of their several promotional codes on your order.  You can find them on their Special Offers tab, on their website.  CanvasChamp! promotional offers and CanvasChamp! coupon codes are frequently updated.   Keep in mind that depending on the type of shipping method selected, it can take 3 to 10 business days for your order to arrive.

CanvasChamp! has much to offer.  I had fun looking around their easy to navigate website.  You’ll discover they have a Reward Program, an Idea Gallery, and many products and add-ons to choose from, including Engraved Plaques and even Custom Photo Pillows!  Fun!  I’m thinking Christmas presents!!!!

My print arrived in just 8 days from date-of-order to delivery date!  Wow!  The final product is stunning!  The colour is good and the finished frame is gorgeous … it’s made well, strong, and it includes the hanging hooks already attached to the frame … it’s ready to hang.

If you’re looking for an affordable, high-quality way to display your cherished memories you must give CanvasChamp! a try.  You won’t be disappointed.


Making #MothersDay Special #ad #LoveHallmarkCA #myhallmark


Making Mother’s Day a special one can be as simple as a special greetings card.  For years families have relied on Hallmark for those special touches and sentimental words.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Hallmark cards and gifts show Mom just how much you care.  Some gifts you can choose from:

  • colourblock tote from Mark & Hall
  • Marjolein Bastin designs (ex. accessory bag, garden bag tea towel, napkin rings)
  • framed prints
  • pretty scarves
  • water bottles
  • books
  • stuffed animals
  • Crafters & Co. Spa selections (ex. comfort wrap, slippers)
  • an assortment of Mother’s Day cards from Hallmark Signature & Wonderfolds

I purposely left out pricing (MSRP) and even the special pricing because I want you to go into your local Hallmark store and see for yourself how wonderful all of these items are.  You have to see and feel/touch to understand the high-quality.

Is it enough to say “but it’s a Hallmark”?  Yes, it always has been enough … that fact is unchanged … but these items seem to stand out even more (to me).  Perhaps it’s the way this package was put together?  All of the items seemed to go together!  Throughout the entire package the colours matched, the theme matched, and every item seemed fresh!

Now, I’m going to do something different this time around!  I’m going to hold a semi-secret giveaway …

Whip Your Face! #ad #BeAgeless

Yes, you read correctly.  I said “Whip your face!”  but I mean with Olay® Regenerist Whip SPF (Active Moisturizer with Sunscreen).  Whew; that’s a mouthful of goodness.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

As you know, for the last several years I have been regularly using Olay® products.  I’ve been pleased with the results I get and that’s why I continued to use Olay®.  Recently, I was sent a 50 mL sample of Olay® Regenerist Whip SPF so that I can experience first-hand. .  I am glad I was given the chance because now I can share what I think with you.

When you get the chance to try for yourself don’t hesitate; do it.  You’ll find that Olay® Regenerist Whip SPF is just like they say “light as air finish”.  I’m serious!  Once applied on your cleansed face prior to sun exposure, it gives a smooth, matte finish that thoroughly hydrates while it helps to prevent sunburn.  That’s because it has broad spectrum SPF 25 which gives you UVA/UVB protection.  This moisturizer is quickly absorbed, and because it’s oil free and non-greasy it won’t clog your pores … it’s lightly scented but non-irritating and non-drying!   I’m so impressed.

Wow!  Right?

Do you think it stops here?  Nope.  The goodness keeps on coming.

Since Olay® Regenerist Whip SPF is formulated with advanced Amino Peptide Complex II, it will help regenerate surface skin.  Your face will have improved elasticity which will help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Note:  Olay® Regenerist Whips are available with and without SPF.

Olay® Regenerist Whip SPF has got me sold!!  Have you tried this moisturizer yet? Tell me what you thought of it in the comments below.
