Pigtown Design: Christmas Cards

Share the News

It’s getting perilously close to the time when I should send all of my Christmas cards, but I’ve been undecided as to what to send and how to do it.

Last year, I sent electronic cards via Paperless Post, which worked very well.xmas[3]

I could see who opened the card, and they could leave comments back to me. But at the same time, it seemed a bit impersonal.

It’s always great to receive cards from friends and their families. Watching the children grow and change from year to year, and then realizing how old they and we are getting, is fun.

Since I don’t have children, and I sent a picture of the new house last year, I thought I’d send a picture of my dog. When I found a pair of antlers that were the same colour as Connor, I knew I had the perfect picture. Or did I? Connor hates to have his picture taken, mainly because an old camera of mine made a high-pitched noise which bothered him, so he’s not very co-operative.

Walk. Walk. Walk.

I am closing my eyes!

I am not looking at you.



Bark. Bark. Bark.

I am doing my Elvis-curled-lip-look.


Finally, we got a good shot!

He’s sitting down, he’s looking at me, and you can see the antlers. Perfect. It’s a wrap… or actually, it’s a card!
