Deck the Halls with Posterjack! #Christmas

The Holiday season is coming up quick! There are now just under two months to purchase or make and wrap presents for all your loved ones. My favourite parts of the holiday season (apart from being with my family!) has to be all the decorating options and choosing unique gifts for each of my family members. My favourite gifts to give? Photographs! I may be a bit biased with my love of photography but who doesn’t love receiving a gorgeous frame of their grandchild or niece/nephew?
Have you visited Posterjack’s website? They create incredible works of art in a variety of mediums from your own photographs! They are able to do prints in acrylic, canvas and even metal. The final prints will amaze you. The bonus? You can create and order from the comfort of your own home!
Here is a look at their typical canvas prints. A welcome addition on any wall!

This is one of their acrylic prints.

And one of mediums that I think is just incredible – a metal print!

They have also developed great ways to decorate your home for the holiday season using your favourite photographs. My favourite has to be the photo wreath – such a creative and festive way to showcase your photos in your home.
Make sure to check out Posterjack and to get those orders in early if you are ordering for the holiday season.
What is your favourite way to display photographs around the home?

Conquering My Fears #findlumia

I was going to wait to share these photos with you but I was so proud of myself that I had to share them with you early! 
I am terrified of heights. I start to shake and become light headed whenever I get too high or even too close to a balcony or a ledge. I wanted to challenge myself and reach out of my comfort zone to capture a trail area that I have always been afraid to head over to. I took my Nokia Lumia 1020 in hand and headed out there yesterday to explore the hiking trail and hopefully capture some great nature shots.
Here is what I was able to capture while battling my personal fears.

I was shaking here but this small waterfall was so breath taking and so unexpected!

This is where my journey started! A lovely little park area that dogs were running around in.

I was passing underneath the towers when I noticed how spectacular the moon looked outlined against them. So I had to take a photo looking up!
I think the colours in this one say it all!

It was well worth the trip to me! Between the waterfall and the beautiful fall colours – I was in my glory!

What is a fear you would like to conquer? 
Disclosure: I received the Nokia Lumia 1020 to participate in the Story Within The Story Challenge.

Burlington Skyway #WW

If you have ever driven across the Burlington Skyway you know how congested and awful the drive can be! We went on a hike a few weeks ago and I just fell in love with how beautiful it looks from the ground. It is hard to picture it as the mess of traffic it can become during rush hour!
