I feel that you all are pretty aware of what I commit my time on—crafting, writing, decorating and the like. You pretty a lot know my hobby inside and out. Properly, my husband has a bit of an obsession of his own—a really like that, like mine for DIY, knows no bounds.
His is all about fishing, and fly fishing in specific (yes, as I’ve learned, there’s a huge distinction there). Each night he’ll quietly wander down to the den whilst I finish up what ever deadline I’m functioning on to tie some flies. And every weekend he’ll pack his Subaru to the brim with supplies and rods in preparation for a day spent traipsing about the mountains in search of his next wonderful catch.
Throughout his weekly travels—sometimes driving as far away as two hours just to hit this river or that one—he’s come upon some fairly magnificent sights. His Instagram feed delivers one particular lovely peek into his mountainous perspective, from catches of the day, to pristine waterways that beg for a bit of (har, har) reflection.
All this to say that when I was attempting to think up the excellent gift for my Valentine, I knew that it was going to be the present of custom art. A collection of prints to commemorate his fly fishing excursions and to give him a location to show off all of the locations he’s observed and fish he’s caught (and released, of course).
This time, I ordered from SnapBox. It was my initial time working with the brand, but it definitely won’t be the final. In order to keep the secret, I hopped onto John’s Instagram account and took screenshots of his favourite photographs, and then uploaded them to my new SnapBox account. Right after that, I chose my variety of print (wrapped canvas), size (six࡯ inches) and the wrap sort (a crisp and pure white). Right after perfecting the crop of every single of the four photos, I was carried out.
I am terrible at keeping surprises and gifted the completed custom canvases to John as soon as they arrived a week later, but (spoiler alert!) he loved them and we immediately hung them up proper beside his fly tying “station” in the den.
