Whether you are tying the knot this summer or are in the process of ?planning a wedding, there are many decisions that need to be made. One, of the many, important aspects of ?planning a wedding is choosing a photographer. The right photographer will capture your special moments and showcase the unique details that you planned out. And don?t forget all the specific sessions you may have from an engagement shoot, bridal portraits, or even the new trend ?trash the dress.?

A common question after you have your wedding photos in hand, is ?what do we do with the images?? We?ve seen options from printing them off to store in an album, turning them into a photo book, adding them to an online album or creating cards; but, one of our personal favorites is to turn them into art for your home. With high-quality professional images from your photographer, it?s easy to enlarge them to make canvas prints you can display and cherish for years to come. We?ve seen displays that showcase many photos by creating a wall gallery or just showcasing your favorite shot with a simplistic single canvas. Canvas prints are a great way to reminisce and relive your special day.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, it is now required for all states to

As we mentioned in our last post, Father’s Day is this Sunday. Even though you made a DIY gift for him or you bought him something, you can still make his day even more special by making him breakfast in bed. Everybody loves breakfast in bed and no one gets them enough in their lifetime. Here are three incredible recipes for three different types of dads. Don’t forget to write a card or note!

2 whole eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup fresh chopped spinach
1/4 cup shredded low fat sharp Cheddar cheese

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 350F. In a skillet, cook the sausage until they’re brown all the way through then cut one-inch pieces and split them in half.
-In a bowl, whisk together the egg whites and eggs. Then whisk in the milk and seasoning to taste. Afterwards, stir in the chopped spinach.
-Grease 6 muffin tin cups with cooking spray then pour the egg mixture evenly into the cups.
-Distribute some cheese and sausage in each cup.
-Bake for 20 mins or until muffins are firm in the center.

The Not So Healthy Dad

1 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup white granulated sugar

-In another bowl, mix the 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon and pour onto a plate.
-Melt the butter in a bowl.
-Use a rolling pin to flatten out 20 pieces of bread, as flat as you possibly can.
-Next, place a tbsp of cream cheese filling on a piece of bread and roll it up then dip it in the butter and roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Do this with each piece then bake all of the rolls for 18 mins or until they are crispy on the outside.
-Add some bacon and eggs for a delicious, full-course breakfast!

The Foodie Dad
Mascarpone And Raspberry Stuffed French Toast (from garnishwithlemon.com)
Ingredients:
For the raspberry sauce:
6 oz frozen raspberries, thawed

1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Salt

Directions:
-Add the raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice together and mix.
-In a bowl, beat together the mascarpone cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth.
-Preheat pan to medium high heat. Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Place one piece of bread in the egg mixture and soak for 30-45 seconds. Repeat on other side of the bread. Tap off the excess mixture then cook for 3-4 mins per side. Do this with each piece of bread.
-Evenly divide mascarpone mixture and raspberries over french toast then fold each piece in half. Sprinkle powdered sugar over each piece for added sweetness.

Which one of these recipes do you think sounds the most delicious?

The Best DIYs You Can Make For Your Dad http://www.easycanvasprints.com/blog/the-best-diys-you-can-make-for-your-dad/ http://www.easycanvasprints.com/blog/the-best-diys-you-can-make-for-your-dad/#comments Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:00:04 +0000 http://www.easycanvasprints.com/blog/?p=11101 Continue reading ]]> Happy Fathers Day Quotes Messages in 160 words For Whatsapp 1024x576 The Best DIYs You Can Make For Your Dad

Photo Credit: Happy-Fathers-Day-Quotes-Messages

Father’s Day is this upcoming Sunday and you should make it a special day for your dad! Instead of spending a lot of money and energy trying to find the perfect gift, try making one. Your dad will love the thought and time put into the craft.

Words On A Mug
Materials:
White mug
Sharpies (various colors)
Letter stickers

Instructions:
All you need to do is use the stickers to write out a message on the mug. It can be “I love you daddy”, “Best dad ever”, or a more personal message. Use the sharpies to create a design on the mug. It can be scribbles, a pattern, stripes, polka dots, or another design that will help make the message stand out. Bake the mug for 30 mins at 350 degrees then let it cool off. Lastly, peel off the stickers and your work is done! You can also do something similar with plates, bowls, or anything else your dad may use on a regular basis.

Picture Coasters
Materials:
Small square tiles
Printed photos on paper
Modge Podge
Hot glue gun
Felt

Instructions:
Cut out the photos and use the Modge Podge to stick them to the tile. If you’re worried the pictures are not going to stay on well enough then sand down the top of the tile a little bit. While the Modge Podge is drying, cut out small squares of felt to hot glue gun on to the bottom corner of each tile. This will protect the surface you place the coasters on.

Transformed Deck Of Cards
Materials:
Sharpie
Deck of cards
Hole punch
Two metal rings

Instructions:
On each card, write something you love about your dad or write down a memory you have shared together. If your children are too small to write, have them draw a picture on each card. Punch two holes on the same side of each card then place the rings through the holes to use as binding.

Hand Print Mold
Materials:
2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
Cold water
Metallic spray paint

Instructions:
Remember when you made a mold of your hand prints in school? This is the same idea but a little more sophisticated. Mix the flour, salt, and water together until it feels like play-dough then make an imprint with your hand. Place the molding in the oven to bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees. Once the mold is cool, spray paint it and let it dry.

Share with us some pictures of your crafts!

If you have a son or daughter who’s really into baseball and their birthday is quickly approaching, then you should consider throwing them a baseball themed party. It can be difficult throwing the perfect birthday party that your child will remember so we’ve made it easier for you. Follow these steps to create a memorable baseball themed birthday party for your child!

Step 1: Decorations
-Buy white balloons and use a sharpie to draw a baseball design on them. You can make as many as you want and place them around the house or yard.
-Have each person who comes to the birthday party write a little note and their name on a baseball then place all the balls and various baseball caps on the party tables to use as center pieces.
-Triangular banners are always a great idea! Make one for the snack bar to stream across the table or you use one to signal the locker room a.k.a the restroom.
-Buy a baseball pinata and fill it with typical baseball game food like kettle corn or Cracker Jacks. It’s not only a great decoration but also a fun game for the kids!

Step 2: Food
-Cupcakes with a baseball design on top. You can’t go wrong with cupcakes! You can also make the birthday cake design a baseball as well!
-Popcorn because it’s a crowd favorite at baseball games.
-Buy plastic baseball caps to use as bowls! Whether it’s for the popcorn or cake, the kids will love it.
-White chocolate covered strawberries with icing so you can design baseball laces on the fruit.
-Have someone grill hot dogs the whole time. Everyone loves a good hot dog!

Step 3: Party Favors
-Baseball bat candy sticks. Yes, they exist! Find them online at specialty candy stores, the kids will go nuts.
-Bags of peanuts still in their shell. They’re a baseball classic and healthy!
-As I’m sure you know, Camelback or Contigo water bottles are huge right now. Use them for a great and practical party favor! Also, the kids can stay hydrated during the party.

Photo Credit: www.mentoringmoments.com

Summer is about to be in full swing with the kids out of school, the weather getting warmer, and the pools filling up. Before you get invitations to all of these pool parties or have your own, you need to gear up to make them the most coveted event of the season. Make these essential DIYs to have the perfect pool party for adults and kids!

Beverage Boat
There are times when you’re sitting on an inflatable and you just think “Man, I really wish I had a cold beverage to drink right now.” Wish no longer. After you make this DIY, you’ll be able to float all day without ever leaving the pool to get a drink. All you’ll need is some heavy duty yarn or string, a pool noodle, and a rectangular plastic storage container (medium size, no lid needed). Measure and cut the noodle to fit a piece of it on each side of the storage container. String the yarn through each piece of noodle and tie it tightly around the container, making it difficult for the noodle pieces to move.

Floating Tea Candles
Besides being a great way to romantically light up the pool at night, these are also a great way to decorate your pool! You will need pool noodles, electric tea candles, and cling wrap. Cut the noodle into small pieces, large enough to fit a tea candle but small enough to barely stick out of the water. Cling wrap the bottom of each tea candle, to protect against the water, and stick each tea candle into a piece of noodle. The amount of pool noodles and tea candles you need will largely depend on the size of your pool and own personal preference.

Glow-In-The-Dark Beach Ball
Obviously, this one would be fun if you were in the pool at night. You will need a translucent beach ball, glow fluid, and a large plastic syringe. Simply blow up the beach ball if it’s not one that comes already inflated then use the syringe to insert the glow fluid into the beach ball. Once the fluid is in the beach ball, bounce it around to make sure the fluid gets all over the ball.

What fun pool party DIYs will you be making this summer?

Photo Credit: Google Images

School’s out, kids are out and you have no idea what to do with all this time. Most children will want to go outside and play but sometimes you just don’t have the time to sit outside with them. This is when the wonderful DIYs come in handy. You can buy all the materials if you don’t already have them and set the little kiddos up at a table, give them instructions and let them take it away. These crafts will keep them occupied and they can play with the end result afterwards! It’s a win-win for everyone.

Rock and Wood, Tic-Tac-Toe
Materials:
-Flat piece of wood (maybe a slice of a stump)
-Multitude of colors of paint
-Paint brushes
-10 flat rocks

Instructions:
This game is great for each child to make their own or for two children to make together. Simply paint a Tic-Tac-Toe grid on the piece of wood. Then paint a design or a solid color on 5 flat rocks and a different design or solid color on the other 5 flat rocks. Let everything dry then play all day!

Kaleidoscope
Materials:
-Cardboard tube
-Scissors
-Hot glue gun
-Aluminum foil
-Tape
-Beads
-Plastic
-Cardboard

Instructions:
Form a triangular tube with the aluminum that fits perfectly into the cardboard tube. Cut out three circular pieces of plastic that are the same size as the tube opening and make sure one is just small enough to fit inside. Hot glue gun the smaller circle about one inch into the tube so that it can be one side of the compartment for the beads. Glue gun another circle at?the end of the tube but make sure you put those beads in there first. Next, insert the triangle into the cardboard to use as the mirror. Then hot glue gun the last circle to the other end of the tube and cut out a doughnut from the cardboard to glue over the plastic. Then, let the Kaleidoscope imaginations soar!

Stained Glass Kites
Materials:
-Tissue paper
-Construction paper
-Scissors
-Yarn
-Wax paper
-Glue
-Stapler

Instructions:
Draw a kite shape onto the construction paper then cut it and cut out the middle while leaving a border. Glue the kite border to the paper. Next, cut up the tissue paper into little shapes that will look great when glued down onto the kite. Once the last piece of tissue paper is glued down, glue another piece of wax paper on top of it all and trim the edges to make the perfect kite. Staple a string of yarn to the bottom corner of the kite and let it fly!

Share with us what you will be making with your children this summer!
