  1. Awesome!! I could pick something out for my boyfriend– he’s impossible to shop for but this would be so meaningful and special :)

  2. What a great give away! I would get a canvas of my 4 children as a gift to my mother for Christmas :)

  3. I would keep the gift for myself! My daughter had her bat mitzvah this spring and we have so many wonderful pictures to select. BEAUTIFUL!

  4. I would make one of my kids, my favorite spur of the moment picture of them when they were playing together in the backyard sprinkler. Love it!!

  5. What a great idea! I had pics done of my 2 boys this summer. I would love to have a collage made of them.

  6. I would love to get one of my favorite photos from my wedding on the canvas to hang in my new home. We just purchased our home and we are needing to add personal touches on the walls and what a better way than to use a canvas to spruce up the walls. The saying I would put in there would be the “happily ever after”.

    I also have “liked” this blog


  7. Beautiful work….I joined the blog. I think I would use a photo of grandchildren.
    The canvas’s are pieces of art. Cannot believe the detail and the clarity of the work.
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Awesome! I would need more than one – I have so many blank walls. But definitely one of my adorable grandson Parker!!!

  9. I would love to have one with words on it. I would probably choose some of the words to the School House Rock song “Three is a Magic Number” which is our little family of 3’s song. How special it would be for us and we would hang it prominently at our house. Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. I love the thought of one of our wedding photos, with our vows printed on it. These are awesome!

  11. What a wonderful giveaway. I would love to have a picture of my little grandsons for my living room! How have you been? I’m having trouble keeping up with all my blog reading!!!

  12. I have a special photo I took of 5 of my grand children- a funny one with them all making funny faces. A gift for me! Would love this done with a quote…not sure what yet. Love your work- and keeping my fingers crossed.

  13. What a great idea! I’d pick either a photograph from our wedding and have it personalized with a favorite quote, or else a picture of my two beautiful children, who when they aren’t yelling at each other are best friends! :-)

  14. I would use a photo of my husband and I, and would have the words “always kiss me goodnight” on it. I would hang it in our master bedroom, where I hope to make some design changes soon! :)

  15. I would LOVE to do a photo of my daughter (she’s 2!) skiing and hang it in her room. We’re in the process of redecorating it!

  16. I love these! I’d go with this quote: “The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”

  17. I would love to do something with pictures of our family becoming complete. We recently adopted our daughter from China and would love something that portrays our time there and our new completed family. Great giveaway!

  18. Such inspiring and beautiful art. I wouldnt know where to begin maybe one of our wedding photos since we havent hung any yet. Or perhaps our two furry girls (the cats), now if I can only get them to sit still for the picture.

  19. I just had my daughter’s Christmas pictures taken and I would LOVE to choose one for the canvas. Wording…? Sisters are forever!

  20. Oh my word if I won this I would be ecstatic! My parent’s 25th wedding anniversary is coming up and I’d love to put their wedding pic on canvas with one of their favorite quotes. I’d love to make this anniv special for them!

  21. Probably a wedding photo. I would keep it since I’ve been married 6 years and I still haven’t finished my wedding album yet. And the best part…I’m a photographer and I should know better. It’s like the cobblers children have no shoes.

  22. I’d totally use this for a wedding picture with our wedding vows printed on it! My husband wrote them and I’d love to memorialize them in this way!

  23. I would use one of our engagement pictures and have one of our readings from our wedding printed on it. What an awesome giveaway. : )

  24. oh wow…awesome giveaway! I’d love to have a wedding picture along with our custom vows. Would place it right above our bed as a great piece of art and beautiful reminder of our first day of marriage!

  25. I would get a picture of my nieces and newphews walking down the beach together. It would look great over my sofa!

  26. I would love to have one of our wedding pictures. We’ve been married for over a year and I haven’t gotten around to framing any of our photos!

  27. I’d chose a quote to put up in my counseling office..something the kids and I could both be inspired by. One of my favorite things to say- “Color outside the lines-and the possibilities are endless”.

  28. I LOVE the wedding picture canvas. My husband and I just got married this past June, and I’ve been looking for creative ways to display our wedding pictures.

  29. I would have either one of my wedding photos done or a a photo from our honeymoon in Paris.

  30. I would print my mantra…”imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous, then be absolutely boring.”

  31. Giving photography momentos has become the all favorite gift for the grandparents for the holidays. This year I was thinking new pictures of our little princess would be great, but it would be even greater with fabulous wording on it! One that would melt their hearts this year, would be “There is nothing greater than the love of a granchild…”. I’ve already shared this giveaway on Facebook, but I hope my friends don’t reduce my chances of winning! I’ve already signed up to follow the blog so some fabulous subway art is somewhere in my near future!

  32. I would choose a picture of my grandparents on their wedding day. My grandfather is now 92 and my grandmother is 80. I love that picture because it was the beginning of my family. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Brothers, Sisters, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren.
    I would chose a bible verse that represented love and the sanction of marriage. My father is a pastor and my grandmother is a true believer/follower of Christ. There marriage was built upon the Lord, and remained strong for all these years.

  33. I have so many photos I’d love to create into art, but I think I’d do one of me with my triplets since I don’t have very many photos with me in it. I’m usually the photographer :)

    I have one where I’m walking with all three holding hands with me.

  34. I would love a pic of my baby who has had heart surgery with the definitions of “heart” printed over.

  35. Ooooh, I would love to win this! We just moved into a new home and the walls are bare, bare, bare!!! :) I think I would like to have something from our wedding made up… our vows over our wedding photo or something!

  36. I’d love to win!! I’d use a photo from our wedding and a quote from our first dance. I really hope I win!! :)

  37. I have had my eye on her etsy store and I’ve been meaning to order a print for my friend as a wedding gift!

  38. I would either take a family shot and have that made into canvas or I would do Psalm 16:5-6 in subway art or bus roll format… I’m sure both would look fabulous! She’s awesome!!

  39. i would love to have one of a picture of my husband and I. We have so many of the kids, I would to have something special of the 2 of us.

  40. I would love to have a family picture from our wedding made for my parents. This is an awesome giveaway!

  48. I love the idea of using a wedding photo and a verse from our ceremony. And I would definitely keep it all to myself! :) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  49. I would like to have the lyrics from You Are MY Sunshine printed on canvas. A meaningful song in our family. I remember my late grandfather always singing it to me, his only granddaughter, and REALLY meaning it.

  50. I would love the “California Beach Towns” because that is where I am from, but since my husband is a pilot in the Navy and we move every two years, I would list all the places we have lived over the last 14 years. It would be a fantastic retirement gift for him next year!!! Thanks for the opportunity and for the link to her blog!

  51. i just saw this quote on a staircase redo at country living, and i love it…. “whine lss, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things will be yours.”

  60. I love the subway style Simplify canvas. We’re moving to our new house in a few weeks and I soooo need some inspiring (for the whole family) art. That would be perfection :) Love the subway style one with all of the cities as well…having moved 3x in the last 5.5 years (and now with three kids) we have so many places near and dear to our heart that would be perfect to include.

  61. I would have a canvas done of my hubby’s parents. His father passed away this past September from cancer at age 56… so “mum” is now a widow at the prime of her life. We live next door and we’
    re very close to her – I would love to give her such a wonderful gift. It would be a photo of them on our family farm walking into the bush hand in hand.. one of her favorites. And their favorite bible verse would be the text.

  66. I would probably do something for my son and his fiance so they have some art for their walls in their apartment when they get married.

  72. I’ve been shopping around looking at prices to have some photographs that I took in October of my daughter printed.

  73. Oh, my, the anonymous “Once in a while” quote remains a favorite, but my daughter and her husband might prefer the streets in Barcelona that cemented their relationship after a rocky patch or the streets in London that convinced him that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. A gift of course. That means daughter number one and her husband will have to receive a customized one as well!

  74. I’d love a canvas of my daughter dressed up as Mary Poppins for Halloween with some quotes from the movie! What a treasure that would be.
    Thanks! foxsquirrelrabbit at gmail dot com

  80. It is kind of long but I’d love to have this quote by Marianne Williamson on a canvas:

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    I’d love to put it in my classroom.

  81. I would have a picture of my daughter and niece recreated in canvas, along with a one of my favorite quotes from Audrey Hepburn.

  82. I love the anniversary one. My parents recently celebrated their 50th, so that would be awesome. However, I love the words ones too. I’d probably put my favorite Bible verse on one: …sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Isaiah 35

  83. Our first anniversary is in a couple weeks, so I’d love to have a canvas made of one of my favorite wedding photos as part of our anniversary celebration.

  84. I’d have a family picture of my husband’s homecoming from a deployment with some sort of quote, such as “land of the free, because of the brave…”

  85. would have to pick one of the 3 family pics we have OR do a new one myself in black & white portrait (me, hubs and 2 kiddos) and use this quote from the poet, writer and artist Mattie Stepanek (1990-2004): “Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”

  96. i would use one of the many cute poses my kids did over the summer and probably give to my husband or my mom.

  97. I love the simplicity of “Friends, Love, Laughter, Brothers,” idea. The walls of our little home are completely white and empty, and turning pictures of the children with their face expressions into a friends, love, laughter, brothers canvas art would fill our home with more warmth!

  155. I am now also following Geezees on Twitter! Such cute stuff, glad CG is featuring them (and let’s face it, I am also stoked they are doing a giveaway!)

  156. I’m having a baby and I there are so many potential options with Baby and words, I will have to see what kind of pictures I can capture with the baby comes… or a morning routine sign for my older girls!
    PICK ME!

  157. I love the “All because two people fell in love” canvas you have featured. I would order this for my grandmother, who, after 60 years together, is celebrating her first holiday without my grandfather.

  158. i love this! there a photo i have with my mom, grandmother, and myself where i am a month old and in my first halloween costume. currently it’s on my fridge, but i’d much rather have a real portrait of it! thanks for this opportunity!

  159. I would love to do a canvas with the streets of all of the places we have lived. thanks for the giveaway!

  160. i would print a photo of my son while he was still at the hospital. i’ve been meaning to put up photos of him and haven’t gotten around to it!

  161. We have an adorable pug who is like a child to us. I would love to get a 10×10 custom canvas with a picture of him with the quote, “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
    Roger Caras

  162. I love the wording with the red background that really shows “Choose Happiness!”
    Many thanks, Cindi

  163. What amazingly, perfect timing! My husband and I are figuring out the details of a gift to his brother and family — we want to give them a canvas piece listing out all the places they’ve lived. Glad to know of Geezees! Thanks for the chance to win.

  164. I would love to make a collage of my son and my niece for my parents’! It would make for a perfect gift!

  165. I’ve actually been WANTING To do this. I would get a picture done from one of my vacations.

  166. This would solve my dilemma of what to do with a huge empty wall – a canvas of my boys.

  167. If ever there was a giveaway that I NEED to win, it’s this one! I have the perfect photo that I’ve been planning to get on canvas for some time now. I’ve already completed our gallery wall with other Classic Car photos my husband and I have taken, and this enlargement is the last one on our list. I’m hoping for bigger than 10×10 so hopefully Geezees will work with me on another option.

  168. I would use a picture of my husband’s parents when his dad came back from Vietnam. It’s a great pic and they are celebrating their 50th anniversary at the end of this year. This would make a great gift for them.

  169. I would definitely have a picture of my little boy done! and I would probably keep it for myself hehe!

  170. I would print my husband and my favorite picture from our wedding. Having pictures from that great day is a wonderful reminder.

  171. I’ve been wanting to do this! We have an amazing picture from our wedding in the sunset and I would use words from our vows.

  172. I would have to use a favorite photo of my husband and me at our wedding and use words from the song ‘Groovy Kind of Love.’ It’s cheezy, but so US.

  173. There is this one particular engagement picture of ours from a few years ago that I LOVE. I have it framed in different finishes around the house. Why not add one more? I’d give it as a gift to my hubby… you know, one of those gifts you get for him that you really got for yourself. ;)

  174. My parents live in a historic house on a military base and I would have a picture of their house printed, or I would have all of the bases they’ve been stationed at printed on a canvas. My dad has served in the US Air Force almost 30 years!

  175. I would have a picture of my grandmother put on the canvas for me to cherish. She is dying with stage 4 cancer and they do not think she will be here till Christmas. She has been my world all my life and someone I have always looked up too as an inspiration in my faith and life.

  176. I’d love the words option and would submit some of the best vacation memory sites I’ve had with my husband. Definitely a Christmas gift. Hmm, or maybe the pic of our wedding and our vows – so hard to choose!

  177. I have a hard time choosing photos. We love to go to the beach so I would more than likely pick a shot of my two sons playing in the sand.

  178. I’d have a hard time choosing a photo! It’d be hard to give this up, but I think I’d give it as a gift. This would make an awesome gift my newlywed sister and her hubby. He takes awesome photos and I’m sure they could find a great photo or photos to have put into a wonderful creation.

  179. I would use a picture of my boyfriends family and have a message put on it. He lost his brother two years ago, It’s a really special photo.

  180. Hi! I’m following your blog! :) I’ve had my wedding vows printed by you on a picture and hang it over my headboard already (as I see an above fan wants to do too!).

    For the contest, I would love to get something along the following on a canvas:

    “This is your LIFE. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop overanalyzing, life is simple. All emotion are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you creat with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and wear your passion.”

    I found this but unfortunately I don’t remember where to give proper credit. It inspires me very much in my life right now as I struggle to figure out what I want to do with my life in a very tough and troubled time. I will give it as a gift to myself, to remind me daily to get out and enjoy life, be social, cherish those around me, be proud of who I am, not regret leaving a career path that didn’t make me happy, and do what does make me happy.

  181. An picture of my brother and I when we were younger. We didn’t always get along, but it would remind me of the importance of family.

  182. My favorite quote ,for the moment, is : Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. A family pic from this spring would be awesome above the quote.

  183. It’d be a combo of a photograph I took in Europe the summer after I graduated college and a sweet quote from St. Josemaria Escriva: “That work – humble, monotonous, small – is prayer expressed in action, which prepares you to receive the grace of that other work – great and broad and deep – of which you dream.”

  184. I’d love to have any of our family pictures with one of the family quotes my husband has collected over the llast few years!

  185. OMG I have seen this site before and I love it!

    I would give it as a gift to husband – with words from our first dance song!! these are amazing!

  186. I am not sure what I’d do, probably one of my favorite scriptures and/or a family picture. But it sure would be fantastic on our wall!

  187. I just had some family pictures taken and I would LOVE to have one of them done in a canvas!!!!

  188. I’d love a piece of subway art for our den which features pictures and mementoes from the various places we’ve lived.

  189. It would be a toss up between a picture of our dogs and some subway art to remind us of a recent trip to Seattle.

  190. I would pick a photo of me and my mom the day before she was diagnosed with cancer. It is my favorite memory of us!

  191. I would love to have the picture of my daughter in her first week of life. I will never ever see her that amazingly tiny and beautiful again. There are no words to even describe the elation that one picture brings.

  192. I would probably get a wedding picture of me and my hubby – I couldn’t give away something this good :)

  193. if possible, I’d do a family collage of my parents, grandmother, children and grandchildren using photos I have here. It would be a keepsake for me, and be very special since my father and grandmother both passed away in 2009. I am not sure what I’d have on it, but it would be a quote having to do with family :)

  194. I’d love a wedding photo with exceprts from our vows – we’re in need of some wedding art!

  195. I would love to have a photo of my husband and son taken this summer…there is such joy in that photo…it could become a staple in my husband’s office!

  196. I got married back in May and would love to do this with some of our wedding photos with maybe the lyrics from our first dance.

  197. I’d love a picture from our wedding. It would be a great 5 year anniversary present for my husband with fun words of places we’ve gone, were we met, etc. He’d love it (I know I would)!

  198. I have a quote hanging on my wall now – I hate the layout of it and would love to have it redone. The jist of it – I’m not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the ear.

  199. I have a photo taken of my husband coming home from deployment and holding our two boys (the youngest of which he was meeting for the first time at 7 weeks old) that I would love to have on canvas.

  200. I would love to have a canvas of the photo of my husband and I right after we got engaged…imprinted with the lyrics of the song he used to propose to me.

  201. Four years ago we adopted a precious baby girl from China., words cannot express how much she has enriched our family. I would love to have a special canvas representing our love for her and her special place in our family. I would have photos, a special quote, and Chinese characters for love and for family.

  202. What an amazing giveaway! I would have to put a picture of my husband’s deployment homecoming, along with some words about what our family means to me :)

  203. This would be a perfect gift for our friends that just got married. I would love to get one of their wedding pics blown up and then for the quote the grooms brother performed the ceremony and I would love to have his opening speech put on the pic . . . it was amazing. Funny, sweet, totally perfect to be memorialized in art!

  204. I would love to have a canvas made as a gift for my parents. I’m not sure at this very moment which one I would use, but possibly something from their 50th anniversary party.

  205. At first thought I figured that I would have a canvas made of my soldier husband. Second thought, I would really like to have one made with photos of a dear friend who lost her battle with cancer last week. I would then have it sent to her soldier husband.

  206. I have been trying to find a way to make my bread recipe into art to hang in my kitchen. This would be PERFECT!!!!! I love these canvases. Thanks for the giveaway.
    in joy,

  207. Which photo would be a multiple hour debate! But a picture of my son… that’s for sure… and I’d keep it!

  208. I would choose either a photo of my lil’ man that was taken on July 4th, his expression in the picture is priceless or I may would choose one of my husband and I walking and swinging my son (while he is laughing hysterically).

  209. There is a picture of my two sisters and I that I would use with a poem I wrote about sisters being your forever friends. I would give it to my parents for Christmas. :-)

  210. I love the subway art and would have one with my local cities on it……..Coarsegold, Oakhurst, Fish Camp, Sugar Pine, Yosemite, etc….

  211. I would choose my husband and I’s engagement picture on our vintage italian road bikes in downtown Tulsa,OK. Its a great shot! I’d probably have some of the lyrics from the song “Brighter than Sunshine” (Aqualung) written randomly on the canvas. Sounds good in my head! We will see!

  212. I have a close up picture of my daughter’s face when she was 1.5 looking down, and all you see is this angelic face with her beautiful full lashes but hair all deshelved but perfectly falling on her face. It’s so perfect. I would use that picture, and write “So imperfectly perfect!” – I think I would like it too much to give it away so I would keep it to myself :)

  213. I’d love to have one or more of our engagement photos printed on canvas. They’re the only set of professional photos we don’t have hung in our house somewhere!

    Happy Thanksgiving :)

  219. I’ve been so caught up with blowing up pics of our daughter to display around our house, it’d be nice to have one of just my husband and I from our wedding day… I would totally steal one of their poems.. they all made me teary-eyed!

  220. “He’s my fairytale, a dream when I’m not sleeping.” is sort of my quote for DH. I would love to have it on canvas!

  221. I have been wanting a subway canvas for awhile now. I think I would do a baseball related one for my son’s room. Perhaps different stadium names.

  222. Yes Please!!!! I would so have the “sign lauguage” sign for I LOVE YOU. Its my son and my thing. We always do it when he is around his friends, I guessed that way he would “still be cool” lol

  223. I so would love this giveaway! I’ve been debating what to put in my entryway when you first walk in. A large pic of my husband and I with the verse:1 Corin. 13:4 (Love is patient, love is kind…) surrounding us would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win!

  227. I would have my sisters newborns picture on it along with her name and birth date. Beautiful!!

  228. What a fun give-a-way. I would totally have one of my engagement photos done . We had horrible wedding photo’s (seriously) so we don’t display anything from our big day. So it would be nice to display something and I think an original canvas art would be the thing!

  229. I would LOVE to put one of our wedding photographs OR a pix from our recent trip to Italy on canvas! I lOVE the look of canvas!

  230. I would LOVE to put one of our wedding photographs OR a pix from our recent trip to Italy on canvas! I lOVE the look of canvas!

  233. I have been wanting to put my daughters pictures up and I love the idea of doing them on a canvas.

  234. the photo I would choose is one of the first that was taken of my husband and I, we were at my best friends wedding. We were dancing and it’s a beautiful close-up of the 2 of us,touching noses. The words would be the lyrics to “At Last” by Etta James…………….our song :)

  236. I haven’t had a wedding or any children, so I would choose a photo of my nieces and nephew. They’re unbelievably cute!

  237. I would love to commission one of the opening sentence from “Pride and Prejudice.” How can I go wrong with Jane Austen?

  238. I’m biased but I will have to go with a picture of my baby sucking her thumb. She’s in kindergarten now and soon outgrowing that, would be nice to catch a sentiment of how she promises to be my baby forever, even when she grows up!

  240. I have a series of pics from a recent photo shoot of my two little ones that I’d definitely LOVE to have on canvas!

  242. Oooh – I’m stealing an idea from one of the comments above – a photo from one of my trips (Florence Italy or St. John, USVI) would definitely be the ticket. (No pun intended.)

  243. I’d love to have a canvas done from a photo of my boyfriend and I that we took at Lake Tahoe and maybe some added words of love!

  244. Oh…I want to win so badly :-)
    I would have one of my daughter’s wedding photos done, along with the song they first danced to.

  245. I haven’t gotten any prints of our wedding pictures, so I’d have one of those with the date and some cute phrases printed on it

  246. We had a huge family portrait taken this past summer. I would love to that picture put on canvas with “Family” or something like that on it. Thanks for a nice giveaway.

  247. Three years ago, my husband won a trip to Maui, Hawaii. I would love to recreate some of our fabulous pictures and give it to him as a Christmas present.

  248. I’ve been really wanting to put my great-grandmother’s sweet potato pie recipe on canvas for a long time. It’s a newspaper clipping from the ’40s I think, with her hand-written ingredients list for the crust. Love.

  249. I have an awesome picture of the Goodyear blimp that I took. It would be nice to turn that into a canvas picture.

  250. I would love to have one of our engagement photos turned into a canvas. I would use the quote, “To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

  254. i just took some really great pictures of my 2 girls over thanksgiving while we celebrated at the beach….and it was BEAUTIFUL!! i’ve got some great pictures i could use for this – that’d be sooo neat to put them on canvas!!

  255. I would do one of our newest family pictures. My youngest daughter was born with a birth defect, and after 6 surgeries and 66 days in the NICU, she came home last month!

  256. There’s a picture of my dad and my daughter at the beach, which is my dad’s very favorite place. I think I’d have that made with some kind of quote about grandfathers.

  257. I love the idea of using word art. Honestly, I have no idea what I’d put. Maybe a scripture verse or maybe a list of favorite places. A fun idea would be favorite (romantic) places visited during my 13 years of marriage.

  258. I have some great pictures that would be so great to use. I have a great picture of my Mom as a young girl…found it in my baby book recently. And then it would have to say something about how much she’s loved me every day without fail.

  259. I have some favorite pictures of my daughter I would probably use. But I also love word art and haven’t incorporated that into my home decor yet so I think I’d like to try that out. But I really don’t know what I would do yet!
