holiday card round up

posted by janet on December 22, 2007

I'm working on our annual "holiday" card, which will be technically late for Christmas, but still within reason for the holidays in general (I have till Chinese New Year, right?). I try to come up with something amusing each year, some are better than others. Here are some from the last few years.

JOY - 2003

We got our fake pink xmas tree and wanted to celebrate. Our kitty was not pleased.

galore holiday card 2003 - joy

Christmas merry - 2004

This card was inspired by a trip to visit the studio of Werner Nekes, who has an extensive collection of illusions, magic lanterns, and artifacts from the evolution of animation and film.

His book Eyes, Lies, and Illusions: Masters of Deception is wonderful.

And inside... (this idea is stolen from Werner Nekes business card)

The hint is to tilt the card away from you and close one eye. There are two messages.*

Santa safety sard - 2005

Sears wishbook - 2006

I actually got the kitchen set I'm fawning over when I was a little girl. I had a great time playing with the plastic groceries.
