If you're anything like me, and your brain is quickly slipping into holiday mode, you just read my post title like this:  fraj.eeee.lay, ala A Christmas remember, right?  Please tell me I'm not the only one!

On Monday morning, my doorbell rang.  I peeked outside to see the FedEx truck parked in my driveway.  That alone sends shivers up my spine - in a GOOD way, of course!  I waited for a minute for him to go away (usually he just drops and runs) - but he wasn't I answered the door...p.j.'s and all.  And that's when I saw it - this beautiful package which was clearly marked "FRAGILE!"   I signed my name on the little machine thingamajig, quickly forgetting all about my cut red thermal p.j.'s that no FedEx man should ever have to see me in, and quickly hurried inside to open this baby up (but not before snapping a quick picture or two - it's a sickness...).


My little package had traveled far - all the way from London...and I was SO SO SO excited!


It took a few minutes to get through all of that tape,

but I was finally able to cut through it all, and then I peeled off the cool silver packaging to reveal this:


More FRAGILE tape...and plenty of bubble wrap.

After getting through a few layers of bubble wrap, I found this:


And I am in love.  Completely, totally, 100 percent.  This is my very first CANVAS - but it surely won't be my last.  I ordered it from - and it came super super fast.  Want to know how fast?  I e-mailed this picture to them on Wednesday afternoon and the package with my super nice 16" x 20" wrapped canvas print arrived on my doorstep on Monday morning.  Did I mention it came from the  UK?  That is lightening fast, right?!? 

Seriously, you should check out their site HERE.  The customer service is incredible...and I just told you how quickly my canvas arrived - SO fast!  And it looks like they have a new special for the holidays - Buy 2, Get 1 Free!!  (gotta love that deal!)


If you're not in the market for a canvas (but seriously, if you're not, you totally should be) will want to check out their OTHER site: bags of see lots of different items they can create with your photos. There are tons of ideas that would make super sweet personalized gifts for the holidays this year.

It's been three days and I still can't stop grinning every time I see it sitting on my mantle. 

Now I just need someone to help me figure out where to hang my new happy-maker!  :o)


  1. How exciting! I love that you took a picture of the package as you were opening it. I can relate. Enjoy your canvas.

  2. LOL! Sounds like something I would do--wait for the delivery truck to leave before opening the door AND taking pics of the pkg!! ;) That canvas is GORGEOUS Wendy! Thanks for the info--gonna have to find the "right" pic & get this done!

  3. That is GORGEOUS! I'm going to check out that site for sure! BTW- I can't even say fraj-eeee-lay any other way (nor can my husband!) :)
