picnik, puppy, and purse...

Have you heard of the free online photo editing program called picnik?  I started using it when I switched over to google Chrome from Windows Explorer.

Why I think picnik is so cool:

My rather expensive photo editing program either doesn't have these features or if it does, the ones on picnik are just easier to use.

Picnik has always offered "premium" features for a small monthly fee.  Now, because picnik is closing soon, it is handing out refunds and allowing EVERYONE to use all the premium features for FREE!

Picnik closes for good on April 19th, so get over there and check it out!  I urge all of you, my sweet blogging friends, to please take advantage of this opportunity.  I know that I am eager to make some wicked cool collages for future posts.  I am also going to make some neato-torpedo graphics for the final Naughty Notions voting page.

We just got a new dog so that's been eating up my blogging time.  She's a 8 month old cockapoo that we rescued from the local animal shelter.  Our whole family is totally in love with her!  We named her Pippa.  Just look how cute she is:


Here's a sneak peak of my nearly finished Naughty Notions clutch.  I made the collage using the premium feature on picnik.

Happy crafting and big hugs from Montana,


  1. Your purse is very pretty...I am ready to vote! ;))

    Pippa is so adorable. I wish I could have a dog. She looks like a real sweetie.

  2. Your dog is so beautiful and such a pretty name too. Thanks so much for telling us about Picnik...yes, I have used it. I didn't realise that it will be closing down. How sad.

  3. Your dog is adorable! I just found out about Picnik too and I am so sad :( I'm a premium member but apparently they are refunding everyone's money so at least that's good.

  4. Pippa is so cute!

    Am excited to see your clutch when it's finished, if the teaser is anything to go by, it will be great!

    I don't use picnik but it seems a lot of people do; it's a shame it's closing down because it looks awesome!

  5. Hi, do you know is it going to be (or is it allready) any alternative editing program online?

  6. Google+ users can utilize Creative Kit which is a simpler version of picnik. is pretty cool, but not so many fonts...

  7. Your clutch is looking great Rikka! Can't wait to see it finished! Mine should be done this week too!

    I'm definitely going to make the most of all those premium Picnik features too until April!

    1. Thanks Jill!
      I look forward to seeing all the finished Naughty Notions projects. The best part about hese challenges is seeing all the projects together at the end.

  8. Oh my goodness, your clutch is looking fantastic Rikka. I am super dooper excited to see the finished product!

    1. Wow! I just realized that January is almost up!
      And I haven't finished my bag!

      I only started it today actually...
      Maybe I should be getting move-on....

  9. I love your clutch! I posted my clutch on pinterest but it wouldn't let me follow you on there I got an oops message! Now am I supposed to post my bag on another site too?

    1. Cool Julie! We'll get everuthing straightened out, the important thing is that you finished! Congrats!

  10. Hi there,

    Love what you've done with Picnik! I'm sure you're thinking about looking for a photo-editing replacement. Check out PicMonkey, it's a new photo project being built by a few former Picnikers so it's sure to feel just like home. I'm part of the team and would be happy to answer any of your questions and would love to hear your feature requests!

    Sign up on to stay in the know about our launch date.



Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! No-reply commentors don't get to read my witty replies, and that's just sad.
