Well, there goes 6 months of the year – gone, poof, just like that!  July really snuck up on us this year.

And winter has finally arrived.  Are you team summer or team winter?

With winter comes the June/July school holidays and family life suddenly becomes a lot more fun (and loads more chaotic).

We realise that we are using the term ‘holiday’ quite loosely here, seeing as the school-goers have been doing all the holidaying while the parents have been juggling work, usual household responsibilities and entertaining the darling little angels.

Well, that’s how it was in our house anyway.

It really is such a fun time for the kids though, and if you were able to take time off work to go on local outings or to even go away somewhere then that is awesome.  Living in Durban means that we are quite literally surrounded by fun activities to do and places to go.  Whether it be a day trip or an overnight getaway, there is always something going on.  We’re sure that you would say the same about where you live too – that’s South Africa.  It’s quite a spectacular place.  It is so important to take the time to make special memories together, as a family, and explore the areas that you live.  You don’t often have to go very far to find adventure.

Just one question for you – now that the kids are back at school, what are you going to do with all of those memories?

You undoubtedly took a bazillion (okay, maybe not a bazillion) photographs during the holidays, on your phone or camera.  Snapshots of the kids playing on the beach, photographs of family gatherings at the cousin’s house or friends coming together for a braai.

What are you going to do with those photographs?

If you haven’t given it much thought, then we have a suggestion for you – holiday canvas prints.

How do I choose from the hundreds of photos?

If you have more photographs than you know what to do with, and selecting a few favourites to print sounds like an impossible task then why not consider a collage for your holiday canvas prints?  You can include as many photographs as you want on one big collage, or you can do a set of collage prints.

Did you know that you can order a canvas using any dimensions that you choose, from a minimum of 150mm x 150mm up to a maximum of 1200mm x 2400mm?  You just need to decide where you are going to hang the prints and then measure the wall space that you have available.  If you need help calculating the perfect size holiday canvas prints, then get in touch with us – we would be happy to help.

What if we didn’t go on a vacation?

Staying home for the holidays does not make the holiday any less special.  The quality time spent with your family and friends is magical, no matter where the location.  Snapshots in the garden, selfies on a milkshake run or going for a walk on the beach make for beautiful holiday canvas prints because they tell your story and you will look at them in years to come and smile.  We’re all for anything that makes people smile :)

We’re sure that you have a few fun and fabulous pics on your phone.  Send them to us and get a collection of social blocks for your photo wall.
