Create the Perfect Valentine’s Gift With Posterjack + Discount Code

Posterjack Discount Code

There was a knock at my door this morning and upon answering it I saw a giant package with my name on it. This delivery was something I was eagerly awaiting as I knew it was the photo art Valentine’s Day gift that I created for my husband from Posterjack.

I quickly tore open the package and was in awe when I saw my creation come to life. It was more than I had imagined and I was so impressed.

VALENTINE’S DAY INSPIRATION

It was Posterjack’s Valentine’s Photo Shoot Pinterest board that got my creative juices flowing. There are so many cute ideas so be sure to check out their inspiration board yourself to see all the great suggestions.

Posterjack Photo Inspiration

Since I was making this gift for my husband, I wanted to focus on just the two of us. I loved the photo of the couple dancing with the lyrics of a song imposed on top of it so I went with this idea and used Posterjack’s Collage Maker to do so. I knew of the perfect photo to use from our first year anniversary celebration, our Ring Ceremony.

And of course, I chose the lyrics from the first song my husband sang and played to me on his guitar which also became our wedding song; “Your Song” by Elton John.

MY PHOTO ART CREATION

It was a tough decision to make on what medium I wanted to use to create my gift. There are so many options with Posterjack; from Canvas Prints to Acrylic Prints to Metal Prints and many more options. Ultimately I decided that a Gallery Frame would be the most pleasing and dramatic way to present this special photo.

I chose a Rich Black frame with white matting in 24 x 32”.  It was a lot bigger than I had pictured especially for the price. I was impressed with the quality of the framing and print enlargement and the entire completed project.  I still can’t believe I was able to create a personal and sentimental high quality piece of art for less than $120! I can’t even begin to imagine how much this creation would cost at a local framing and photography store.

CREATING WITH POSTERJACK

You can visit Posterjack.ca to browse the different options for creating photo projects. You can also take a look at the user-friendly interface that assists in creating the perfect piece of art.

One of the features that I particularly love is the guide that will notify you if your photo quality is appropriate for the size and style you have chosen for your photo art. This ensures that you get the perfect print each time and that there are no surprises on delivery day.

We made room for this print in our bedroom and as I sit here and write this I keep glancing up at it and I get swept away with how beautiful it is. I had to gift this to my husband a little early as I needed his help to hang it and photograph it to show you today. He was truly touched at the sentiment and the fact that I paired a beautiful photo of us with the lyrics from “our song”.

This is definitely the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and I think it would also make an excellent anniversary gift.

Fighting Household Stains with OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover

OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover

Unfortunately stains are a part of life and no one individual or family is immune to them. It’s not about preventing the stains because let’s face it, that’s an impossible task; it’s about learning the best way to fight the stains that do happen.

I had an opportunity to try the OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover and I’m happy to share my experience. I should note that this opportunity was very timely.

We had just bought a new set of sheets for our bed. It was something we were putting off because honestly we could have found many other uses for the money we spent but we couldn’t deny the fact that we needed new sheets any longer.

After just a few nights spent in our new and luxurious linens they became “tainted”. It was over a rather silly reason too. I had suffered a small cut on my ankle from shaving my legs and as it was healing it became itchy. I must have been scratching at it in my sleep because when I awoke the next morning, I found a blood stain right where my feet were.

Needless to say, we were disappointed but it also gave me an excellent opportunity to put the OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover to work!

 HOW IT WORKS

OxiClean™ is a powdered stain fighter that is activated when added to water (warm or hot water work best). Oxygen is released and targets the stains, rather than the fabric, removing stains on many water-washable household items and surfaces.

All OxiClean™ products contain specialized stain removers (oxygen, surfactants and polymers) that remove stains and prevent them from re-depositing onto your laundry so they can be washed away.

HOW I TREATED MY STAIN

The OxiClean team helped me to determine that blood is considered a “protein stain” and there is a specific method to treating these types of stains. I followed the recommendations as demonstrated in the video below:

  • Step One: I mixed a small scoop of OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover with room-temperature water and applied it to the stain to let it soak. After just a few seconds I could see it starting to work.
  • Step Two: I let it soak for about one hour.
  • Step Three: I spent a few seconds giving the stain a little scrub then I added it to a hot water wash with an additional scoop of the OxiCleanVersatile Stain Remover.
  • Step Four: After the wash, I dried the sheets as usual and then put the sheets back on and to my delight the stain was gone!
