I read and enjoy Linda Seller’s blog shortpumppreppy.com. She has excellent blog tips and giveaways.
Right now she’s giving away twelve free Premium subscriptions to the Premium edition of Picnik, the photo editing site.
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.
And I’ve designed recipe cards appropriate for giving.
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.

I love your recipe cards!
The eggnog recipe sounds very important, and might need to be a PSA.
If you were REALLY no artist, then you could do another blog called Nota Artistdotcom.
Ping! I'm a fount of ideas!!!
You are fount of somethin'.
Your recipes would look great on cards.
It took me a minute to get the hang of text on Picnik. Each line is typed in separately and adjusted for color and size separately.
