Use Your Imagination And Put Your Memories On Canvas

Forget the tired old tie and give a memory!

Father’s Day is just 19 days away (June 17th) and this is also the traditional month for weddings, which are sometimes preceded by showers, so June is a perfect gift giving month don’t you think?

Easy Canvas Prints always has great offers and this one is pretty awesome if you ask me. How about a gift where you Get 25% Off Your Custom Canvas Prints + Free Shipping for each dad, or one for Dad and one for the wedding couple? (Hint) Free shipping is ALWAYS great perk!

If you don’t have someone in those categories, you might want to punch up someones decor with prints on canvas of those neat buildings your camera nabbed while you were on vacation. What about your own decor? The main idea here is, if you have a great photo you’ve taken, why not share it with the world?

Here are some more ideas for subjects:

Pets, heirlooms, cars, gardens, military service photos, birds, awards, trophy fish, family trees.

Put Your Photo On Canvas For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day Is May 13th, 2012

That means that as of today it is 21 days until Mom’s special day. Plenty of time to order your prints for mom. I know this is a genealogy blog, but the print you order doesn’t have to be something genealogy related. How about enlarging a photo or two (or three for aesthetics) of your Mom’s last vacation to paradise on a large canvas?

One of our family members just received a thank you gift from one of her interior design clients and the subject was Hawaii. The photos used were her own, and so the client was assured that the subject was already a winner!

Easy Canvas Prints has several offers to create your Custom Canvas Prints for Mom, Grandma, your Aunt, and even your sister.

You may have read one of my own posts about the wonderful canvas print I was given by Easy Canvas Prints. I liked it so well I asked to be an affiliate.

Cloud Backup Made Easy

Cloud Storage? Yes, but which one?

I’m sure you’ve heard that advertising catch phrase “To the cloud”, but do you know exactly what cloud storage means and how it can be a benefit to you?

Cloud storage is a descriptive way of saying that your documents and files stored on your computer are uploaded to backup company’s hard disk. Essentially, the company you choose stores the files on their hard disk at another location anywhere in the world.

 Safety, Security and Peace of Mind

These files are accessible only by you and are encrypted (even if they somehow were accessed they would not be readable) and kept safe by the hosting company as part of your agreement with them.

I personally pay for backup storage with a well-known company. We have two computers to back up, so we have a plan for each. The cost is minimal considering the benefit of peace of mind knowing I can always get to my files. How does it work? The company you choose will have a program you can download that links to their service site.

You can choose options such as the time of day you want your files backed up, the locations of those files on your computer, and will have some sort of indicator to show when all the files have been saved. It’s a one-time setup for the program and the rest is automatic.

For us, we leave our computers on and our cloud backup occurs in the middle of the night when we are less likely to be using our computers. That doesn’t mean you can’t use your computer when the cloud backup is taking place. It’s just easier (in my opinion) to do it at that time in case there is any kind of slow down while backing up.

Top Ten Cloud Storage

If you’re looking for more information to use so that you feel you’re choosing the best cloud storage I suggest Top Ten Cloud Storage as a great place to start. They will answer frequently asked questions (FAQ’s), you can determine the plan that best fits your needs. Personally, I love a site that’s already done all the research for me and put all the answers on one site.

Top Ten Cloud Storage goes an extra mile by displaying testimonials by actual users of cloud storage hosts.  They also have a blog, a forum and a presence on Twitter and Facebook.
