Would you like to have your photo fiddled with? Oprah does...

This is my photo that was fiddled with and put on a stretch canvas!!! I had over 20 special effects to choose from for my final product!!!!

I came across a photo website that is pretty darn cool. Here is the bottom line: you send them your favorite photo and they "fiddle" with it and send you back a preview for approval. You can choose from abstract finishes to oil painting effects and they come in various sizes.

Here is a little background on the company:

The Photofiddle.com site went online in June 2004 and not to long after the launch they received a bit of press from the Washington Post, USA Today, PC Magazine & more. The Washington Post called them "buzz worthy", USA Today reviewed their photo on canvas and picked them as the best, and PC Mag rated them 4 out of 5 stars. What really put Photofiddle.com on the map was when Oprah put them on the O list in 2006. Since then we have become one of the top sites on the Internet. Their current Alexa traffic rating is 182,995. More recently, the Today Show picked Photofiddle.com as a great DIY decorating idea, the CBS Early Show featured them as a best Mother's Day gift idea, and the New York Times editor wrote a great article including Photofiddle.com. Photofiddle.com was recently voted by the viewers of the CNBC show "The Next Big Idea" as a million dollar idea.
So, NOW for the good part. Photofiddle has graciously given me a $50 gift certificate to give away to one of my readers!!!! How cool is that!!!!! Wouldn't this make a great Valentine's Day gift? Or maybe Mother's Day or Father's Day or Just Because You are Cool Day!!!!!
Here is all you have to do to enter:
*Visit photofiddle and tell me your favorite special effect and then tell me what picture you would use in your comment.
*Follow my blog and let me know in a separate comment
*Blog about this giveaway and link to me and you will receive 2 extra entries
The winner will be picked on Wednesday January 28th.
Even if you don't win the BIG prize photofiddle has offered everyone from my site a 15% discount on your order placed. Simply add code mom15 at the checkout.
They are so professional and prompt and you will have an amazing piece of PERSONAL artwork to display in your home.

I love the art canvases they do. The colors are so vivid. I would use a picture of my two boys but exactly which one I don't know. I have some really great ones that would look awsome.

I am a new follower, started following you last week.

I love the variety of picture art! I would love to have our family picture professionally printed and hanging on our walls! My favorite look was the charcoal sketch. Keep up the great blogging. I visit faithfully!!!

I like turning a pic into a water color, I would use a pic of Will of course, maybe the heartbreaker one!

I totally love their canvas wraps. I would love to turn a picture of my kids into a cool art piece to hang on my wall!

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
