Andy and I are late in sending out Christmas cards. I was up til midnight last night putting the finishing touches on them. Last year, I made cards with scrapbook paper and ribbon. This year, I took a different approach. I never really liked the photo cards simply because I felt it weird to send a picture of myself to someone else. I’m not really photogenic either so if I did send a picture, I was afraid people would have labeled it as one of those awkward family photos you see streaming around the internet when in reality it was a normal picture for me. And I don’t have kids yet so that option has also always been out.
So this year, since we have Barkley, I decided our card would be all about him. He’s like my child, I mean I do feed, groom and love him just like I would a child. So my original idea was to get a good picture of him sitting down so I could then photoshop some reindeer antlers onto him. Well the problem is that sometimes Barkley gets the command “sit” confused with “down” (aka lay down). So this was the best shot of that idea. Also, my camera isn’t the best for action shots so about 99.9% of the shots I did take were so blurry and unusable.
