Let's do lunch. **Premium Picnik Giveaway**

How about a Picnik?

I am really picky about catchy little names that are misspelled on purpose.  Kountry Kitchen. Disaster Kleenup.  Krafty Kathy’s Scrapbook Shoppe.  And seriously, why would you purposly lead kids astray by misspelling the word Preskool??  (And why is there a “k” theme?)

Given my dislike for all stoopid spellingz*, you can see why I didn’t rush to check out this Picnik thing when I first heard about it.  I’ve been putting it off for a while now, but I could only hear about it so many times before I had to go check it out.  And you want to know what happened?  Ah feld in lurv.

There are so many things you can do on this thing!
You can add words to an already awesome picture:

You can make these cute and easy little Fancy Collages that have backgrounds already prepared for you:


And you can make simple Collage from templates provided:

The Many Faces of Tucker

And, ooh-la-la, you can make pictures look all dreeeeeeeeamy:


Those are things that you can “make”, but you can also do simple editing(crop, fix red-eye, etc.) and create masterpieces with the different effects provided.  Below I have made a slide show sampling some of the effects offered.  The first picture is the original photo I took of the flowers that Marshall brought home for me on our anniversary. (Thanks, Marsh!)  After that one you’ll see variations of the same picture.  I only used one effect per picture, but you could easily use more than one!

So now that you’ve witnessed the amazingness that is Picnik, I’m going to offer you a chance to win a one year subscription.  Anyone can sign up for a free account that offers limited access.  But with a subscription to Picnik Premium, you have access to all of the effects, templates, fonts, collages and other options.

Want to win??
This time it’s a little different.
Everything a giveaway probably should not be: unrandom and biased.
Go to Picnik, and use the free(non-premium) editing tools and effects on one of your pictures to create a masterpiece.
Then email your creation to me at queenofhaddock(at)gmail(dot)com
(You obviously have to use @ and . instead of the words,
but I get more spam if I type it like normal.)
I will pick my favorite photo, and that person will get an e-gift card for the one year subscription!!

This giveaway starts at 12:01am EST on Saturday, June 6th and go until 11:59pm EST on Monday, June 8th.

*There is one reason to enjoy misspelled words. They get away with it because it is really funny.  Comedy will get you a long way in my world.
