Mother’s Day Gifts

Sometimes for Mother’s Day you would rather something that you can treasure forever instead of flowers that will be dead in a week. I know I fall into that category for sure. My hubby knows that I would rather receive something I/we can use or something more sentimental then flowers. As moms, we’re always doing our absolute best for our families so when our kids and spouses give us gifts that are meaningful, it makes us feel special & appreciated.


Imagine opening a personalized gift like a canvas print of your family from CanvasPop that’s unique to you as a opposed to an impersonal gift card to some random place because the hubby forgot and picked up a card/gift card at the last minute at the local convenience store this may or may not be a true story….well unless the gift card is to a spa then I can roll with that. Winking smile


If you remember I did a giveaway with CanvasPop back in 2015 and you can see that post HERE. This is the Canvas I received from them and I absolutely love it and treasure it!!!

It is a 16”x20” .75  deep wrap/photo wrap canvas and I have it hanging right above the entrance to our hallway. It makes me smile every time I look up at it because it sparks the memory of that day at my husbands Aunt & Uncles house.

I definitely want to get more printed and have actually created a folder on my desktop that is specifically for pictures I want to put to canvas. I figure this will make it so much easier when there are specials on their site so I can just grab one at a time and start printing them throughout the year so I am not dropping a big chunk of change at one time to decorate my whole house. Right now on their site if you use the code 45FORMOM you get 45% off which seems like a pretty good deal.

So definitely pop over to CanvasPop and check out their site for your Mother’s Day gifts.

Week 15 – Artistic Metal: Find your inspiration in metal

Well since my blog is called Flutterbye Chronicles what better way to find inspiration in metal then my metal butterfly on my back patio wall.

Here is the picture before I got artsy with curves.

52 Week Photography Challenge

Well last weeks challenge was a bust cause Week 13 was Portrait: High Key and so far I have not had any willing participants to complete it so I will revisit that one at a later date. Lets be real I do this challenge for myself so the only person disappointed I did not complete the challenge last week is me & not too many people venture onto my blog these days….soooo moving along….

Week 14 – Landscape: Zoomed In

Instead of a wide sweeping landscape zoom in.
