Hi, y’all! I’m enjoying an absolutely gorgeous weekend at the beach. We are staying on Topsail Island in NC. Not to gloat, but it is wonderful living only a few short hours from the beach. But, I wish you were here too. The weather is cool, but not too cold. We spent Saturday exploring the southern most tip of the island. There are no roads leading to it. However, if you own a 4WD vehicle you can get a permit to drive on the beach to park and fish. Honestly, because we were walking, seeing the beach used as a parking lot kind of ruined the view.
But, no worries, we went exploring around the point and found plenty of beautiful vistas!
Like this frame worthy gem!
What do you think? I love having vacation photos to display and remind me of the wonderful time we had.
I have been thinking about getting several of my photos enlarged and reproduced via UPrinting.com.
I have a little tip for you: Having your pictures printed on a rolled canvas is a more cost effective way of dealing with photo enlargements. For one, you don’t have to buy a frame! And two, you don’t pay the excess charge for stretching or the higher shipping charges.
When your rolled canvas arrives you can stretch it yourself! It really isn’t difficult. You can buy canvas stretcher bars at any art supply store. They come in almost any whole inch length. And as you can see, the prices are inexpensive.
I found this YouTube video that shows how easy the canvas stretching process is.
After you’ve stretched it, why not try one of these creative ways to display your canvas(es)?
Get an extra large printed canvas and use it as your headboard.

The Sassy Pepper also shows how to dress up the edges of the canvases. Cute, huh?!
