it's no picnik

before i broke my hand, i made these valentines for Wyatt to pass out
using picnik.com and some graphics i found on Pinterest.  


Han is probably not entirely appropriate for preschoolers, but i couldn't resist.
that line is one of my favorites.

who else is crying buckets that Picnik is closing?
seriously.
i love that site.
i use it all the time!
i've made the kids birthday invites on it for the past 2 years.
and their valentines.
and our christmas cards.

grrrrrr.....

i also love polyvore.com for creating fun collages and the like...
i made these invites for miss mollyb's birthday party using polyvore.


i like how they turned out, but polyvore is no picnik!
it's not for photo editing.
so....what to do when picnik closes?!!
anyone want to give me a google+ tutorial?

I've been using picnik for 3 years now, I love it! I was incredibly bummed to learn they'll be closing. I hope someone comes up with a similar site just as good.
:(

Hi Erin,

Hang in there, lady. I could not agree more that it's such a bummer to see Picnik go. I'm actually part of a team of former Picnikers. We're working on a replacement photo editor that's going to be just as good, if not better, than your old fave. Check out PicMonkey! It's being built (as we speak!) by a couple of the folks who brought you Picnik! I've been fortunate enough to play around with PicMonkey in its beginning stages and if you liked Picnik, I really think you'll love PicMonkey!

If you're as excited as we are, sign up on our site www.PicMonkey.com and we’ll keep you updated on a launch date (soon, soon!). Also, feel free to send me your feedback, feature requests, and, of course, any questions you have!

Cheers,
Jenn
