Photofiddle Turns Photos into Art!

I received an email awhile back from a company called Photofiddle asking me if I would like to turn one of my photos into a work of art. I went to their website and I was really impressed with what they do. You submit your photo and they put it on stretched canvas and it has the texture similar to that of an oil painting. If you click on the photo above you can see the texture better. The hardest part was trying to figure out what type of photo I wanted to use but I decide on the vignette above. They even let you see a proof of how it's going to look before they send it to you! They also have different styles you can choose from like watercolors, color sketch , impasto, pop art, etc. You can see more of these different styles on their website

This piece of art is now hanging in my cubicle at work and it brings a nice touch of home to my office.

Here's the great news...Photofiddle would like to offer all of you a 15% discount! The code romantic15 just needs to be entered on the shopping cart page in the promotion code box and click apply.

Village Monograms

Here are the other items that Bev sent me. This beautiful monogram linen pillow. It's so sweet!Don't you just love this saying! This is machine embroidered and then matted and framed with glass over the top.
Here is another monogrammed tea towel in pink. I think any of these items would make wonderful gifts for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, weddings, etc.

Bev has an etsy shop called Village Monograms, click here to see her other items. (Her username on etsy is villagemonograms)

About Me

My photo
I'm a single mom with a 28 year old son & 22 year old daughter. I love gardening, decorating, knitting, cooking, and drawing. I dream of having my own little cottage someday but for now I'm just happy turning my rental apartment into a warm and inviting space on a single mom's budget. Because I work full time, I don't have time to respond to all the comments you leave but I try to at least answer all my emails...that's if they don't end up in my SPAM folder by mistake!
