I read and enjoy Linda Seller’s blog shortpumppreppy.com. She has excellent blog tips and giveaways.
I’ve used Linda’s tutorials to Santa-hat my avatar.
I’ve designed two blog headers. Not great, but then I’m no artist.
Picnik is a great free program and I can see countless ways to utilize it for blogs, photo editing, scrapbooking and general mom-use.
Linda’s other tutorials include:
- holiday cards
- personalized place cards (So cute, but not my thing.)
- personalized photo ornaments
- photo calendars (great gift for the Grannys)
- thank you notes, gift certificates and other photo gift ideas.
Here are some gift certificates I made.
Her contest is still going on, so design something and see if you can win a Picnik Premium subscription yourself.
If you make something particularly great, e-mail me a postable link from your photobucket or flickr or whatever account and I’ll post it here on my blog!
Here’s my e-mail address. I made this on Picnik.
The benefit of having your e-mail address in an image like this is that it protects you from roving spam-bots.
Have you given creative photo gifts like this in the past? What’s been the best you’ve given or received? My husband and I treasure a photo calendar featuring his mom’s side of the family. So many great memories of people we love.
