playing with picnik

I know that by now many of you, if not all of you, already know about the site Picnik. I have been using it for the past year to edit my family photos. For some reason, I never thought to use it on my blog photos. So, what started out as a post about my kitchen, ended up being a post of some of my favorite things and playing with different borders and exposures.

This "HOME" sign is hanging in my kitchen window. It has been there for almost 2 years and I will never get sick of it. I bought it from Etsy but unfortunately, I don't think the seller sells on Etys anymore.

Top of a lampshade in my bedroom....And also my new banner that still needs some tweaking!

Just love these old architectural pieces! Mudroom....Doesn't always look so pretty. Usually backpacks and baseball hats are hanging on this rack.

Thanks for bearing with me while I experiment with these photos...I'm having a lot of fun!

Wanda said...

Oh, my! I'm in love! With H-O-M-E. I wanna make one. Dang it. Maybe that's why I've not been reading blogs in awhile. They make me want to be creative and I don't have time. I'm lovin' all the other things, too.

White Flower Farmhouse said...

Hi Jennifer,

I loved looking at your picnik experiments -- embarrassingly, I'm a picnik and flickr virgin, but your post is giving me a bit more encouragement to head over there to play. What I wouldn't give to take photos half as nice as yours!

And, of course, I love peeking into the background at your gorgeous home! Hope you'll post more glimpses!
