Does your photo need fiddlin’?

By Mir
September 10, 2008

If you’re like me, you’ve got a hard drive full of pictures and very few actual prints. Because it’s… hard, or something. Hey, you’re busy! You’ve got things to do! And if you have kids, somewhere there’s a grandparent lamenting the fact that she’s short on pictures.

So, sure, every now and then you print out a bunch and send ’em along or frame them for your home. But what about that one special photo, the one that really deserves a special spot on the wall… perhaps as a special holiday gift for Grandma?

Meet Photofiddle, your custom artwork destination. You supply the high-res digital photo, they do the fiddlin’ until you have your masterpiece. I gave them a picture of all the grandkids in their matching pajamas sitting in front of the Christmas tree, and they removed the clutter (there were some toys strewn about) and turned it into a watercolor-look rendering on canvas, strung on a frame and ready to hang. Guess what my mother-in-law is getting for Christmas this year? (Shhhhh. Don’t tell!) The results are stunning—this is the perfect way to turn a photo into a keepsake.

Prices vary, but let me help; use coupon code wantnot15 to take 15% off your order (valid through the end of 2008). Photofiddle may just save Christmas, this year!


  1. Mir – this is awesome. How long does the coupon code last?

  2. Whoops! Sorry, the code is good through the end of 2008. I will probably remind y’all again closer to the holidays, too.

  3. Awesome. Then I have time to get more recent shots to use.

  4. Oh, that’s lovely. I had a similar oil painting done of my husband and kids by an Etsy artist this summer that turned out beautifully – these look similar, but the prices are much lower than her current prices.

  5. very cool! I’ll definitely be looking for a reminder because I’m a total scatterbrain! 😉

  6. This is an AWESOME deal! Thanks!!!!!
