Easy Canvas Prints Review

ECPcart

 

Recently, I was given a very generous offer from Easy Canvas Prints of a free 8 X 10 canvas print in exchange for my honest review of the outcome.  I can sincerely say the photo on canvas I received via FedEx a couple days ago was such a wonderful, and not unexpected,  result.

When I was contacted about the offer I immediately knew which photo I wanted to use for the canvas print.  It was one of my grandmother Helen Nordgren Moline. The original was quite small and I wasn’t sure how it would look in a larger format.

It was easy as 1-2-3-4 to upload my chosen photo, choose the size, and then the free design options. In my case, I chose to have the print wrap around the edge on a 1.50 inch thick canvas with a mirror image.  I did have to adjust the resolution once and reload the image to the site, but it wasn’t a big deal and took just a couple minutes to make that change.

And now, here’s the final result I received this week.  What do you think?

I’m thrilled with the result, and even though it’s hard to tell in this photo I took today, the image quality on the canvas brought out all the details in the photo and more.  You can see the texture of her coat and hat, and I was even able to see that Grandma had pierced ears!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Wouldn’t something like this make a wonderful present for Mom?  Right now, Easy Canvas Prints is having a sale for the holiday:

If Only They Had Radiant Floor Insulation

How many of your ancestors endured cold cabin floors and would have been oh-so-happy to have warm floors with radiant floor insulation?  I know many of mine would have!

Some of my Moline family lived in cold and snowy (part of the year) Sweden before coming to the United States.  And where did they settle?  They were first in Minnesota and then moved on to a somewhat warmer climate in western Washington.  I say ‘somewhat’ because the Nordgrens lived in Bellingham, one of the coldest places in the Puget Sound area.

As it so happens, we will be remodeling our family room pretty soon and one of the things we plan to do is add a radiant barrier to three of the walls.  While this is a sponsored post, I honestly do intend to look into foil insulation because it’s eco-friendly, and not harmful to install, and cost effective.

The room is located on the south and west sides of our house and even if we did those two walls we would come out ahead.  The other wall is shared with the unheated garage, and so that would work great in that application too.  EcoFoil has many installation manuals you can consult, as well as a McAfee secure site for worry-free ordering.
