    I know it should be about wedding or love related but what love is more unconditional than that of a mother and child. I would have my canvas designed as a tribute to my son Darius. I would use a photo of him and a few words from the letter I wrote to him right before he was born. He changed my life and made me a much better person.

  2. Comment by Tere:

    These are super cute. Thanks for the post!

  3. Comment by martha:

    These canvases are a marvelous way to display a favorite wedding shot.

  4. Comment by Dionne:

    I love this idea! My fiance and I are really into photos and I think adding the lyrics from our first dance would be really special. Have you heard the song “I Found Love” by Kenny Wayne Shepard… mmmm so wonderful!

  5. Comment by Laura W:

    I would love to get our favorite song “Hands Down” by Dashboard Confessional printed with a picture from our upcoming wedding.

  6. Comment by Caroline:

    This is absolutely perfect! Quite possibly one of the best gift finds to date! Beautiful work!

  7. Comment by Leslie Velazquez:

    This is such a great idea!! There are too many ideas for such a beautiful piece. I write poetry and have written my husband poetry since back when we were dating (for holidays or just because). For our 1 year wedding anniversary, I wrote a poem and framed it and gave it to him as an anniversary gift (gift of paper is the 1 year anniversary suggestion) So I think I’d choose a wedding photo and add the poem I wrote for him.

  8. Comment by Debbi G.:

    Oh boy!! These are awesome…I think I’d do my 3 kids or the 5 of us..together, just hanging out, being “us”.
    Love this idea!

  9. Comment by Jamie:

    I LOVE this idea!!!! The artwork is beautiful! I would love to do this with a wedding picture of us (finally 9/6/09 it will be here!) and either one of the many poems I wrote for my fiance, one in particular comes to mind. Or our first dance song “in your Eyes” by peter gabriel, although it will acutally be sang by one of our groomsmen at the wedding. That would be awesome!

  10. Comment by Heather:

    These are truly works of art, amazing and something we would both treasure forever, featuring a snapshot from our upcoming wedding.

  11. Comment by Candice:

    I would put the lyrics to our song “Lovely Tonight” by Joshua Radin on it along with a picture of our first look from our upcoming wedding. My fiance was nothing I saw coming, my life was going in the opposite direction and he turned me around and showed me what REAL love was. We just bought a house and this would be a PERFECT addition to our new lives together.

  12. Comment by PDXBride:

    I love these canvases . . . I would use one of our wedding photos (although I am not sure which one yet) and use lyrics from our song . . . Our song is pretty unique and totally us!

  13. Comment by Nycia:

    What a fabulous idea!! I would love to add one of these beautiful canvases to my master suite, especially since my hubby and I are celebrating our 7yr anni next month. I would use one of our beautiful wedding photos and it would read, “Happiness is forever, with God as the anchor.”

    What a perfect anniversary gift!!

  14. Comment by sara.jane:

    What a wonderful idea! I would use a photo of us from the day we were engaged. My fiance has given me a card every month we have been together and he has left numerous sticky notes on my mirror in the bathroom, in my car, in my lunchbox, all over! I would use one of my favorites and have those beautiful words (that always make me cry) printed on the canvas :)

  15. Comment by Tina Peterson \'The Book Lady\':

    I would love something that I can use for my business – a banner, a sign, or a display piece.
    Tina

  16. Comment by Passion Parties by Carline:

    My one year anniversary is coming up. I would use one of my erotica pictures I took for my husband and write the chorus to the song he dedicated to me: Witchy Woman by the Eagles.. :D

  17. Comment by Maryjane Vargas:

    Wow! Let Stephanie know that her work rocks. If I would to win I would love a custom picture of my daughter. She is my one and only.

    Great Post Jaime

  18. Comment by Danielle:

    Oooh, I would love to do a custom canvas of our family wedding photo, along with the vows from our ceremony.

    Or maybe a pretty portrait of us, plus the lyrics of one of our favorite songs (Starting Line – “Island” – we did get married in Miami, after all!)

    How can I choose?? Thanks for running this contest, Jaime. :)

  19. Comment by Bonnie Bell:

    These are beautiful and so creative. I love that the options are endless…endless just like the love I feel for my husband. My ideal canvas would include a photo of us at our wedding and a few of the lyrics from Ben Folds The Luckiest.

  20. Comment by ginibell:

    These are awesome!!

  21. Comment by Brandi Rhodes:

    I would use this one picture that was taken during our first dance sorta looking up at up. The look on our faces is true love. What a great way to be able to express and show your love if you have a hard time doing so. It would always be a reminder. Sometimes everyone needs one. Keep up the great work!

  22. Comment by Nicole:

    These are really beautiful! I love how you can make them something more traditional or funk it up a bit w/the words! I’d love to get something like this of FH n I as we have so many pics I’ve always wanted to get framed but never gotten around to…

  23. Comment by Carey:

    Our wedding isn’t til Sept 26, but I would love to win. I’d use a photo from our big day… and would have to talk with Dan to figure out text to use. Or maybe I would use an engagement photo and surprise him with the canvas as a gift. Hmm… so many choices!

  24. Comment by Jill:

    I love the idea of a custom canvas. I would use a photo of our twins and the words that we chose for our wedding song to go along with the picture.

  25. Comment by Jean:

    I can’t think of a more beautiful way to display my grandchildren.

  26. Comment by Rachel:

    Personally, I’d either have one engagement photo on – sans words (after all, a photo speaks for itself!) or one of my boudoir photos as a gift for my fiance :-D

  27. Comment by Molly:

    Wow – I’m loving this contest! I have a friend who constantly reminds me that just a few short years ago, I made the statement that I don’t see myself getting married. I was having such bad luck in the world of love until I met my fiance! I now have a completely different perspective now on life and have so many positive things to focus on. I would use my favorite snapshot of my fiance and I would include all of the places we’ve been on dates in our city and all the vacations we’ve taken to remind us of all the truely important moments in life…those are the ones that matter.

  28. Comment by Steph:

    My dh and I have always been on a very tight budget and have never been able to afford anything more than our proofs. Here we are almost 7 yrs later with an album full of proofs and some in frames. This would be perfect for us to finally start a family photo wall, and something this beautiful could be the center piece.

    Thanks for contest Jaime!

  29. Comment by Jamie:

    This is so awesome! I am actually getting married in 5 months and this would be a wonderful gift for my fiance and I if we won! I would love to put a recent photo of us on it as well as incorporating some of our love letters as text! What an awesome give away!

  30. Comment by Farren:

    This would be the perfect canvas to display at our wedding and then to have hang in our house once we are married! My fiance and I have been dating since my freshman year in highschool- that’s 7 1/2 years. In highschool, he would write sweet notes to me durign class and leave them in my locker or pass them to me during class change in the hallways. I’d love to use an excerpt from one of my favorites to print on the canvas with an engagement picture. It would be the perfect display to show where we started and how much our relationship has grown.

  31. Comment by Jill Brainard:

    I heart geezees! I would use one of our engagement pictures that are going to be taken at the Neon Boneyard with the words “Lucky I’m in love with my best friend”–words from our first dance as husband and wife.

  32. Comment by tammy morrison:

    “Give me a kiss to build a dream on” Louis Armstrong.

    I bought him a card that played that song one time and we danced in the living room for nearly an hour, opening and shutting that little card. I think the words should go around a shot of us dancing at our wedding…

    Tammy, bride to be!!

  33. Comment by Lottie Fowler:

    I absolutely love this idea. I would love to have one of these for me and husband. What a wonderful way to remember and honor our wedding vows!! ;)

  34. Comment by Bree:

    I’m pregnant with my first baby and I would use it for that. Maybe a picture of my belly or the baby right after it is born.

  35. Comment by Stephanie @ Queen of Quirky:

    I would like to use it for the entry way into my reception. We are doing a movie theatre theme so there would be so many things we could do with it, using our picture!

  36. Comment by Lara:

    I’ve seen these before and I absolutely love them! I already know what I would do! Our song, since our first date… is Everything by Michael Buble – I would have that song written on the canvas… it says it all perfectly about how we feel about eachother!

  37. Comment by Lauren @ Team Giles:

    Oh Jaim you always find the most amazing things!! I just adore this canvas!

  38. Comment by Tina:

    My husband and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary this year. I would love to have our picture with the song lyrics to Through the Years on the canvas. it would make a great gift that our entire family could treasure.

  39. Comment by Kelly:

    I would love to design a canvas for my sister as a Maid of Honor gift. She got married last year, so I would use one of her wedding pictures and include the text of the song they used for their first dance – I Cross My Heart by George Strait.

    Honestly, I’m going to get one of these regardless of whether I win or not – I LOVE these!

  40. Comment by Stephanie B:

    I would use the below statement by Anita Diamant, one of our favorite writers. These words are being read at the beginning of our wedding and I would love to use the words in art for our home.

    “Why marry? Because marriage publicly affirms the possibility of moving toward another person without reservation. With that momentum, we are propelled toward the center of the heart, toward the center of the universe, and however far that gets us is farther than we’d otherwise go alone. Why marry? Because every wedding enacts a personal connection to the universal story of the human hope for wholeness. Because by stepping into the hyperbarically charged space on the altar, the bride and groom join in a dance that goes all the way back to the beginning of memory. Getting married is an attempt at turning air into matter, transforming the ineffable workings of the heart into things that are “real”: the invitation, the dress, the ring. The words that constitute a wedding are magical incantations of the highest order. In the presence of witnesses, two people are pronounced a single unit. Every wedding is an invocation of peace and wholeness and connection and joy. Good wishes flow from family and friends, through history and community, with wings and prayers and everything that might turn out to be holy in the universe. We receive that shower of blessings, hoping with all our hearts to make them last.”

  41. Comment by Bob:

    Ok I typically don’t go for this type of lovey stuff but these are done in a way that’s pretty cool. There are so many possibilities. I would love one for me and wife.

  42. Comment by Kamante Dickey:

    Our daughter, Kayla, is getting married next summer. Although a happy occasion, she will not have her grandmother or only brother Joshua there due to cancer and a motorcycle accident only 5 months apart. Kayla said they both taught her what true love was from the Bible’s 1st Corinthians 13, so I would have that scripture placed upon the canvas with one of her wedding photos of her choice.

  43. Comment by Ashley:

    I absolutely love this! My fiance and I are getting married next month but there will be a few very special people missing from the day. I would love to be able to have a picture of us and a picture of both our parents and grandparents from thier wedding days. I would also use the words from the ee cummings poem ” I carry your heart”. Since they are no longer with us it will mean so much to have them in our new home.

  44. Comment by Theresa:

    I think I’d do the lyrics to our wedding song- “Everything” by Michael Buble. My fiancee picked our song, telling me that it’s bubbly and light hearted and it made him think of us. :)

  45. Comment by Krista:

    This is a great contest.
    My idea for the canvas would be a great shot from our upcoming wedding and the song lyrics from Frank Sinatras “The Way You Look Tonight” which is a song has a lot of history and meaning to the both of us.

  46. Comment by Lauren:

    I would have a picture of my husband to be and I with the words of our song, Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You” and it would be something to cherish for years to come and a momento for our future children

    Lovely idea! I may order one for my wedding to display in honor of those than cannot be a part of our big day!

  47. Comment by DAna:

    I would use a photo from my friend’s wedding as well as some Bible verses. Maybe 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

  48. Comment by Christina:

    I would love to get our wedding picture with the lyrics to our wedding song or Corinthians (one of our readings).

  49. Comment by Emily K.:

    What a lovely idea! This would be a lovely wedding gift to my husband-to-be!

  50. Comment by Joanne:

    My best friend and I are both engaged to be married. Currently, she is living in England however she is coming home to Canada for her wedding. She switched her wedding date so we could be a week apart and be in each others wedding parties. I would love to do the lyrics of their wedding song on canvas. It would be a unique gift just like our friendship.

  51. Comment by Carolee:

    This is a fantastic idea. Between me and my hubby to be we have 5 children. We have full custody of all of them. They are being honored and included in our ceremony. This would be an awesome to have for our family to treasure.

    BTW – I love your site.

  52. Comment by Erika:

    This is beautiful! My fiance and I are getting married in May. I would love to have a photo of us as well as the ee cummings poem that I am reading in our ceremony. This is my favorite poem:

    i carry your heart with me
    by e. e. cummings

    i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
    my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
    i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
    by only me is your doing, my darling)
    i fear
    no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
    no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
    and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
    and whatever a sun will always sing is you

    here is the deepest secret nobody knows
    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
    higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
    and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

    i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

  53. Comment by Wayne Steward:

    What can be said… simply AMAZING!

    Father of the Bride

  54. Comment by Erin:

    These are just gorgeous… amazing work, whether I win or not. I would give this as an anniversary gift to my parents. They are inspiring to me every day with their love for each other and dedication to making each other happy.

  55. Comment by alb photo:

    I am starting my own photography business and dont have any of my work printed on canvas so i would probably choose a pic from a recent engagement shoot i did and put my logo on it.

  56. Comment by AmyJean @Relentless Bride:

    I would love to use this to display at the wedding a picture from our engaement session. Thi is an awesome prize. :-)

  57. Comment by Jeana:

    I would use one of my favorite e-pic shots and use the song lyrics from Sam Cooke’s “Cupid”. That’s our favorite song and we kissed for the first time and that song was playing!

  58. Comment by cwright04:

    I love this idea! I would do a close up shot of our hands from the ceremony with the scripture from 1st Corinthians that we used in the wedding. Or maybe the lyrics to our last song of the night, Etta James’ At Last. So many options!!

  59. Comment by Trica:

    If I were to win this contest, I would have a canvas made for my son and his fiance as a wedding present. They’re getting married August 8.
