HP #WakeUpYourWalls Event Recap Review & #Sweepstakes. Open to U.S. Ends: 4/30/13

"Home is where the heart is." -Pliny the Elder 

That's my way of explaining the feeling I get when settling down on my comfortable couch, after a busy day, with a cup of hot green tea to relax. The lighting in the room is set just right with the instrumental sounds playing in the background as I look at the artwork on my walls. I think to myself, "What an accomplishment I've made. There's just one more room left to do. However, this time, I have some helpful tools from HP and designing tips from Genevieve Gorder." 

HP Wake Up Your Walls Event Recap Review
Selena Thinking Out Loud With Purpose had the pleasure of attending the HP Wake Up Your Walls event with Genevieve Gorder in West Hollywood at the Petit Ermitage on 2 March 2013. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet other bloggers and see what new ideas HP had for all of us who enjoy taking pictures and sharing them with our family and friends. 

Genevieve was a gem at the event, taking her experiences as an interior designer and giving us so many great ideas of ways we could work our photos into walls of art. I really thought her suggestion of mixing black and white with color images, created depth and diversity to a group of photos. She also shared the idea of having a grounding photo and working around it to create the look and feel we desired for a wall space. In the examples on display, I was able to see how different-sized canvases, positioned together, created a full and distinct presence. I learned that just about any photo can be scanned in to be processed as a work of art. Think of all your child's artwork, original artwork, vintage family photos, wedding and baby announcements, baby sonograms, there are endless options.

Although, I was pretty impressed by the idea of using my photos as wall decor, I wanted to know how long it would take to get the final product and their prices. HP has teamed with Walmart and Meijer Photo, to bring this photo solution to life! During, the question and answer session, Genevieve explained how we could submit our orders online or at the HP kiosks in Walmart. The canvases could be ready for pickup in as little as 4 hours on the same day. There's no need to wait weeks and weeks. Imagine having to buy a nice gift for a loved one. Make it easy and special by using a photo to freeze a  memorable moment in time with a wall canvas. I know they would love it. But, if price has you a little worried, don't be, HP wall decor art is very affordable, ranging from $9-$40, depending on your size and style of canvas.

Before we left the event, HP provided all of us with a swag bag of goodies summarizing the details of the event, prizes for our lucky readers, and sweepstakes information too! I learned great tips and looking forward to sharing my wall art and giveaway with you.
