Day 39 of my 50 DIY Days: Our Silly Christmas Photo
Well, it’s another year and time for another weird Christmas card. Each year we do something crazy with our holiday cards, because we can and why not? We definitely prefer to send these out more than a “normal” family photo card. We sort of went with a crazy cat family theme for this year. I’m happy to tell you that we do NOT own 22 cats… just two. Ha!
We ordered our cards from Minted and I adjusted a premade design (I used Vintage Christmas) to say “Meowy Christmas” instead of “Merry Christmas” (all of their cards are super customizable). In addition to our own names, we decided to write the names of ALL our cats on the back of the card. Here’s are the names of all of “our cats” (we really had fun coming up with names)…
“FROM: Mike, Chelsey, Ruari, Baby in Belly, Angus, Lord Pistachio, Princess Pretty Pants, Whiskey Whiskers, Mousy Mouserton, Kitten Spacey, Meow Meow Mew, Squishy Fuzz Buns, Edward Scissorpaws, Lord of the Pounce, Cat #8, Harry Mustard, Captain Pancake, Fuzz Artist, Beefcake, Ebefleazer Scrooge, Twinkle Tush, Dr. Chew Chew, Christofur, Pootie, Tuna Catserole, Chairman Meow, and Hambone.
RIP: Lady Fluffington, Pico De Gato, Minxy Pamperjamp, Admiral Toot, President Eiseinmeowmer, and Not A Dog.”
