Darla Arni Creates: Canvas



Talk about cute things! Darla Arni has an etsy shop with some very cute canvases and other one-of-a-kind gifts for you! Her Canvases can be personalized to say what YOU want to say! My kind of canvas 🙂

I received the LOVE canvas, it was a 4″x4″ inch canvas with a lot to say! I love it. It is nicely made and I absolutely love canvases anyways, and I knew exactly where this was going…


It is not perfectly made, but I feel that that adds to the whole canvas look and I just love it!!!

It provides tips, tricks and steps for creating a productive, creative and fulfilling life, including: The art of being still, 5 ways to cope with a bad day (I am sure we can all relate!), Attitude is Everywhere, Crisis Creatvity,Perception Deception, What Are You Waiting For?

So, check out Darla’s Etsy Store and check out her book! You are sure to find a great gift somewhere in there for a loved one this year!!
