Recently, I was contacted by Canopi for an awesome opportunity. Fathead® was looking for 25 bloggers to review their very own Fathead® of choice, for LARGER THAN LIFE, FOR REAL.™. I always saw ads for Fathead® while watching sports with Mr. B and recently learned they do MORE than “just sports”. Intrigued by this concept, and knowing I already received countless compliments on a similar piece I have in my living room, I applied and was accepted as one of the 25 bloggers. Excellent!
When I first applied I was hoping to review one of the “create your own” decals. I was planning to make something with my logo for my computer or the wall space near my desk. After being selected I was asked to review a piece from their Art & Decor : Home Decor Graphics line. Wondering what in the world I would select, the answer came to me when I noticed the home decor wall decals include instant windows. Finally, after nearly 2 years at my office I was getting a window! And I would NEVER need to worry about washing it or getting drafty in the winter!
Looking at the amazing selection I was drawn to many of the mountain or lake pieces. Especially after my time in Portland. Since Fathead® graphics are easily applied and removed and are reusable I also toyed with the idea of getting holiday themed pieces. Eventually, I decided on the giraffes since I am OBSESSED with them and knew I would love the piece no matter what for that reason alone.
Some of the other bloggers took pictures and wrote about the installation processes. Mother nature was against that idea for me. My window arrived in a long triangle cardboard protection device, and it was hard core raining. I opened the box and brought the piece out to keep from getting wet. Apparently in my haste I didn’t notice the device to help install and tossed all the extra pieces out. After a few days the rain stopped and I took my decal to the office. A few coworkers offered to help and two of us placed it on the wall, while a third directed us where to place.
Now I have a great window, and my clients have something better to look at than paint peeling off the wall and a few rusty nails. I love the idea of a wall decal because it is more cost effective and more attractive than art work of its size, it doesn’t damaged the wall, and there’s little risk of it falling down and hurting anyone or breaking. Since installing it a few weeks ago I have had at least 3 different staff members and 2-3 clients write down the Fathead® website and information to buy their own windows or other decals.

For those who hate clicking new windows, here is a graphic provided by Canopi of a collage of several bloggers’ displays. I loved seeing this, because it shows how unique everyone can be with their Fathead® and how there is certainly a design to fit your wants or needs. Also, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m about to move in with Adventures of a Misfit Librarian. Or at least steal her bike pillows and amazing style sense. Coincidentally, she’s also the blogger who is linking to me today.
What do you think? Will you be heading over to the site and making or ordering a piece of your own? Make sure to snap a picture and share it if you do!
