Merry Christmas!

Our card didn’t quite make it into the mail this year, but it did arrive in dozens of email inboxes this morning. Better late than never!

I totally photoshopped in the cats (you may remember that getting a photo with all of us together was a bit of a challenge). I don’t actually own Photoshop, I just used the basic Windows editing software to layer in photos I took of each of them sitting in those exact spots on the sofa. I’m quite pleased with myself. I also took on the design of the card for the first time ever (as opposed to choosing a pre-designed template from Vistaprint or wherever), making this the first year that our card has been absolutely, positively, 100% free. Can’t beat that with a stick. Plus we’re saving the trees and all that by distributing it via the internet.

We’re spending some time with family this week, but I’ll be posting on Wednesday about my latest Craigslist acquisition–one of my best finds ever, if I do say so myself. I wish you all the very best of holidays. May your Christmas be merry and bright!

  1. You did a great job on the card! I never got ours printed out either, but I’ll print out a few and send them with pictures to the few relatives who don’t have internet/Facebook.
