BEST OF 2008: Photofiddle

PhotofiddleHome decorating is not my strongest suit. I do manage (with the help of my husband) to maintain a tidy and warm home, but the decor isn't spectacular by any stretch of the imagination. It's rather simple and clean-looking with a western flair.

That said, I do have two favorite pieces of art...both are hanging in my daughter's room. The two professional-quality canvases feature a beautiful little girl with a clear blue eyes, long lashes, and the sweetest little lips...our daughter {pictured}.

img_1684Both canvases are from, a company that allows you to "transform your photos into professionally framed art." Just upload your photo, pick your design, choose your size...and the artwork will ship in days. It's really a wonderful concept.

I already have another piece on my "wish list" for after baby #2 arrives. I'm hoping to have a family photo taken of the four of us within that first year...and then I'd love to order a GIANT canvas for our dining room. It would be such a fun and lovely way to celebrate our family. I'm saving my pennies...

  1. I would love an oil painting of my son. I took this really lovely shot when he was outside modeling some clothes we were reviewing and I absolutely adore it because it is this unstaged profile shot

  2. I really love these I think it's a very neat idea and looks very classy and timeless. I love all the different design options they have also. How cool would it be to have your own popart from your photos?!?
    Thanks for the entry

  3. I'd love to get a family photo of the 5 of us. My littlest is 5 now and I've never had a family picture that wasn't a candid shot. This would be so nice to hang up in the family room!!

  4. I recently had a photo on canvas and loved it so I can only imagine how great a photo fiddle artwork would be.
    BTW-your rules link is not working ;)

  5. I would love to get our most recent family photo made into a canvas print! A relative of mine has one and they are so classy!

  6. This is very cool. I don't have any pictures hung on our walls because it seems so generic. But this sounds like a great alternative. Thank you!

  7. I have hardly no pictures of my mom which she died last year but I have one I like to have done love to win this thanks.

  8. I'd love to have a portrait of my boys done. I keep telling myself how big they are getting, I feel like I'd better get one done soon! I do have a couple of pictures that I love so I could always use one of those.

  9. I really need some art. I just moved to a large house from a very small house. I have a lot of very bare walls.

  10. I love your idea of the family photo in the dining room. It would be so hard for me to choose which photo to use and where to put it, so many options! It's a very fun way to display a great picture though, and especially pictures of kids.

  11. I totally heart canvas prints of photos ~ would love to win this and surprise my expecting pic with a canvas of baby when it arrives ~

  12. Photofiddle is perfect for an upcoming gift,
    please drift my way, to give me a lift...
    This looks like our cup of tea,
    a present for someone who's perfect for me!

  13. I would love to try out photofiddle. I've read a few blog posts about it now and perhaps this next year will get to try. I love photos! Thanks!

  14. Thanks for introducing me to Photofiddle. I have never heard of it before I read your post and I LOVE IT! The walls in my bedroom deserve a canvas of each of my kids!

  15. I do photography as a parttime job and I have so many photos of my daughter just sitting on my computer. I would love to have one of those made into a canvas to enjoy!

  16. Ever since you mentioned this portrait I have just fallen in lave with the style! So goregeous! I can just imiagine a similar picture of my little guy when he used to be little and cuddly. ...I'd like to remember those days in living color. Oh, about a 12 by 18 sized memory would be great! ;)

  17. I've got the perfect spot for a large piece of art work and would love for that art work to be of my kids :--)

  18. that's kinda neat how it turns out your photo. I guess it's supposed to look like it was painted? Anywhoo, it's still interesting and nice to have.

  19. I have a great picture of J walking around the farm with her arm around the neck of a miniature horse foal that I would love to have printed on a canvas!! What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for the chance to enter.

  20. I would love to have one with my 3 sons together. My oldest will be 18 and will be leaving for the military soon. Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. I keep seeing photofiddle reviewed on blogs and have been **un**patiently waiting to try them myself!!

    Merry Christmas!!

  22. Id love to give one to my daughter and son in law. they couldnt afford to buy a real wedding portrait on canvas and these look high quality

  23. I have used Photofiddle in the past, and it is truly fantastic. Easy & fun to use, and the products are of the highest quality. I'd love to be able to get a canvas of my little dog, Zeke.

  24. I was cheated out of a canvas by a certain television shopping network where I sent in my photo, pre-paid and never got my canvas. I'm keeping my fingers crossed this contest is my good karma coming back to me

  25. Those are so cute, and such a great, special, and timeless way to capture those moments forever. I'd love to have one done of our family too!

  26. I seen this canvas photo art and said "WOW"
    because this would be an awesome thing to make a photo artwork piece of my new niece :o)

  27. We've lived in our house for two years, and have yet to put anything on the walls. This would be perfect to capture our 6mo daughter.

  28. My husband is the artist, so hopefully my children will get their artistic genes from him. I'd love to surprise him with a wall of his photography, and the gallery canvas look would be perfect!

  29. We have a 16x20 of the boys when they were 6 months and 4 years old. I was just telling my husband that I wanted to get another made of each of them in their wrestling attire since they both placed 1st in their wrestling tournaments. Super nice giveaway and thanks so much for the opportunity!

  30. This seems like a neat idea. I recently took a photography class to gain some skills in order to take nice pictures of my baby. I haven't thought about how I might want to display the nice pictures I've taken.

  31. Wow, this is a neat prize! I love hanging art up on my walls & this would be a great addition. I'd probably upload a photo of my entire family & hang it above the fireplace.
    Thanks for the contest.

  32. I ordered a canvas from photofiddle after your original review. It was a picture of my husband a and our son. I gave it to him for fathers day. We all love it and a would be THRILLED to have another. I think I would to a family portrait too.
