Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Movie Library

We are a movie watching family. We watch movies on television, iPods, computers, and my iPhone. We have memberships to Blockbuster and Netflix. Every Saturday night is movie night in our home. We love movies.

That’s why I was very interested in learning more about Movie Library. Movie Library houses thousands of popular movies in almost every format imaginable – Hi-Def, DVD, DivX, PDA, & iPod. These instant full-length downloads start for as little as $1.99. The best part is that there are no additional programs you need to install on your computer.

Their library contains movies from all genres – comedy, drama, action, romance, etc – and even includes television shows such as Hannah Montana, Brothers & Sisters, and Law & Order. They even have the movie Twilight!

What a great way to add movies and shows to my daughter’s iPods. Movie Library’s prices are so much more reasonable than other download sites which means that I can get more for my money. This is such a great thing since their favorite movies changes from week to week. And the best part is that the quality of the playback is excellent with their 6 channel surround sound and DVD video resolution.

With economic times more difficult these days, I’m glad that our family doesn’t have to cut back on one of our favorite pastimes – watching high quality movies!

Congratulations!

I’m always looking for different ways to display photos of my girls and I definitely found some creative options at Photofiddle.com!

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Photofiddle.com allows users to create art from photos with free online photo effects software. Photofiddle will transform any picture into art with over 50 photo art styles to choose.

MY REVIEW

I had the opportunity to submit one of my favorite photos to Photofiddle so I could see their amazing work first hand. My very first impression of them was that they were lightning fast! After emailing them my photo, I had my 5 artistic proofs within 24 hours! It took me longer than that to just decide which picture to send!

It was tough to decide which one to select but I finally decided on the Pastel Watercolor on canvas. I love pastel colors and felt it would really suit the femininity of my daughters. Once I placed my order it took less than a week for the final product to arrive. Considering that I live in Hawaii, that was quicker than I ever expected!

I love my Photofiddle artwork! It looked exactly like the proof if not better. Sorry, but my camera does not do the artwork justice. The colors are really vivid and bright!

The best part is that it came already mounted onto a frame so all I needed to do was hang it up!  Talk about convenience. If I had to mount it myself, it probably would have taken me forever to do it.

So if you’re looking for the perfect gift, especially for Mother’s Day, you have to stop by Photofiddle.com. You’ll find tons of amazing gift ideas for all the loved one in your life! Check out their before/after gallery and see what possibilities await you!
