A Daily Dose of Mothers Day Gifts: Preserve those Photos Beautifully

Contest is closed, winner announced shortly.

As a mom of 3 I love pictures and when I had the chance to review for the perfect Mothers Day gift I jumped at it. I thought how fun will this be, I had always had pictures of my boys on the wall, but have seriously slacked in getting the little girls’ picture up. So I thought what better timing to get a review and giveaway offer than Mothers Day time! All I can say is WOW, Photofiddle did an absolutely amazing job in fiddling my photo. It literally took me days to decide which picture I wanted.

This is the picture I sent in:

Now of course that beautiful face needs no fiddling but still I wanted something different, other than the same old glossy photo I had hanging on my wall. After options such as Impasto, Pop Art Design, Oil Painting, Comic Book and Black and White Sketch, I finally settled on the deep sponge painting. To say it was beautiful is an understatement. It was truly art! A 14×20 stretched canvas brought my daughter to “life” on canvas. It was absolutely amazing. Here is the final product of the Deep Sponge Painting of the above picture I chose:

The photo I took of the picture doesn’t even begin to do it justice, it truly is breathtaking. My boys have no complained because none of their pictures are that big so it looks like this mom will be fiddling pictures of them as well as a family picture in the near future. With everything from a heart collage of 12 of your favorite photos to fantasy paintings or comic book paintings, Photofiddle will have you smiling everytime you fiddle your photo.

This in my opinion is one mothers day gift that any mother would love for this mothers day. Don’t believe me, then take CNBC’s word for it when they claimed that is the next million dollar idea or PC Mags 4 out of 5 star rating. That’s something to brag about in my opinion.

    since I have an abundance of photos myself and not enough frames… the best for me would be one of their collage prints… the hard part would be choosing print or canvas ( which is so narley-marley!) I have been harping at my oldest son to send me a 'recent' photo of my 2 grandsons together… his comment… "ahhh, good luck with that!" meaning he can't get them to sit still together or are they trying to pull each others head off??? geezers they are only 3 & 1… so I say 'follow them around while playing, they dont have to pose!' how do you think I got most of my photos??? I may have backs of heads & mouths full of food & lots of 'rabbit' ears… but I have some & great memories! So anyhoo a collage would be the trick… I could gather what I have & smoosh them together & make a story! Yea, a story picture board!
    Cool… ain't gonna stop this grammy from having pictures of her grand babies together !! so there (pouty lip)
