With Thanksgiving coming up this week, it occurred to me that nearly every canvas that our customers order reflect their thankfulness! As you prepare the turkey and all the trimmings and get excited about mall sales the following day…don’t forget the real meaning of this blessed family holiday. And take time to tell those you love how thankful you are for them and why you love them so much!
Susan from Hermosa Beach, California asked us to create a canvas that showed us how much she appreciates her family. It was taken of her entire family including all the grandkids on her father’s 100th birthday!
Then there’s this great art canvas we made for Bev that shows how thankful she is for a bright future a new little family member. “This is my son and new grandson, Ashton. It was one of those moments that you catch and are so thankful you did!”
And while Bev was thankful for the future of that new grandson, another customer, Glenda indicates how important her ancestors are to her life. “This is a 1903 wedding picture of my grandparents, which I shared at the 83rd annual family reunion. The canvas was a hit and generated plenty of discussion about our family history. And the group at Canvas on Demand was great, very helpful with details and suggestions that made the canvas exactly what we wanted it to be.”
I was especially touched by a canvas we made for Kat from San Benito, Texas. She is very proud of her mother who is a marvelous role model of strength and perseverance. She told us that the photo “symbolizes the true face of courage. My mom is continuing with her battle against cancer, and so far, she is doing very well! She has been so strong!”
A customer named Bradley had a canvas created for his wife of 18 years, Pamela. “She is the love of my life and my best friend. This photo was taken in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii before my deployment to Iraq. It is one of my wife’s favorites of me and our two children.” All of us are at Canvas on Demand give thanks for those who risk their lives daily to keep us free and safe!
I hope these canvas examples inspire you this Thanksgiving to really count all your blessings. And as you gather with family and friends, snap a few photos to capture those precious moments. You never know; one of them may end up hanging as a lovely family heirloom canvas in your home!
As for those of us at Canvas on Demand—we are thankful for many, many blessings, but especially for all our wonderful customers. Mom
