Burns Family Christmas Card 2023

Burns Family Christmas Card 2023

Burnsland
Each year, we send out a Christmas card to family and friends. Our cards have become a tradition for us, as we enjoy creating them and sending them out, and we like them to be a bit unique. See some of our past cards here. For our 2023 Christmas card, I asked Laura what we should do, as I always do. She is the member of our team with the best, most creative ideas, and pretty much all of our Christmas card ideas have come from her.
2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
A Tiki Christmas tree is the latest in two of our series here, the 2023 Christmas trees and the Tiki of the Month. Time was running out, and I could not decide which series I wanted to work on, the Christmas trees or the Tikis. And then I thought, “Why not combine them into one?” After all, a Tiki Christmas tree would be rather unique, which was my goal for the Christmas trees to begin with.
Santa Claus on His Horse

Santa Claus on His Horse

Burnsland
Santa Claus takes off at a gallop on his trusty horse Jingles as he gets ready to deliver presents to your house. Yes, Santa uses his sleigh pulled by the reindeer to deliver presents on Christmas Eve. But as the big day approaches, he rides around the North Pole on Jingles to help Santa get in flying shape. It is just a small part of his training regimen, but Santa definitely enjoys the ride.
2023 Christmas Tree No. 2

2023 Christmas Tree No. 2

Burnsland
A Christmas tree blueprint is the second entry in the 2023 Christmas Tree series. Everyone knows how to make a Christmas tree, right? If not, then here is a handy guide to help you. Although there might not be much information here that you did not already know. And check out those archaic light bulbs? Haven’t those all been replaced by those fancy new energy-saving LED bulbs? But then haven’t blueprints been replaced by newer copies and electronic versions?
2023 Christmas Tree No. 1

2023 Christmas Tree No. 1

Burnsland
The first of a few Christmas Trees for 2023 is a traditional tree with some simple decorations. As you may remember, I did a series of pumpkins for Halloween this year. If you consider two a series. But actually, each of those two art pieces contained several pumpkins, so that makes it more like a series, right? Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do something similar for Christmas, and Christmas trees were the obvious choice.
Falling Leaves Tiki of the Month

Falling Leaves Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
The Tiki of the Month for November has lots of falling leaves to deal with, although all of those leaves are a problem of his own making. Even with all of those leaves to rake up, this month’s Tiki still looks happy about it all. Maybe that is because he knows he has another Tiki to help him with this chore. When thinking about what to do for the Tiki of the Month for November, I realized that last year’s November Tiki was all about Thanksgiving.
Bald Eagle in the Fall

Bald Eagle in the Fall

Burnsland
A bald eagle gives a slightly menacing look as he glides past the fall landscape on foot. This artwork is actually based on a recent event. Very loosely based, actually. One day recently, Laura and I were driving home from somewhere along one of our rural roads here in West Tennessee. As we were going along, I spotted a bird in a tree, which is not all that unusual. As we got closer, the bird started to fly out of the tree and across the road in front of us.
Happy Halloween From Mobius the Goat

Happy Halloween From Mobius the Goat

Burnsland
Your browser does not support the video tag. Trick or Treat! Happy Halloween from an animated Mobius the Goat! And if you can’t see the animation, hover over the image and then pick the play button. Or, if you get tired of the animation, I suppose you could use the same method to stop it. But who would get tired of a smiling, trick-or-treating goat? As you might imagine, Mobius is hoping for more treats than tricks this year, so be nice to him, please.
October Tiki of the Month for Halloween

October Tiki of the Month for Halloween

Burnsland
The October Tiki of the Month is ready for Halloween, complete with his mask. Does a mask like that really hide his identity? Probably not. But he is happy to take his place in the Tiki of the Month lineup. Maybe next year we should work on getting him a better costume. Something that hides his identity more, perhaps? Are Halloween costumes even supposed to hide your identity? Probably not, but that’s okay.
The Rocketeer Goes Trick-or-Treating

The Rocketeer Goes Trick-or-Treating

Burnsland
The Rocketeer goes trick-or-treating for Halloween. Or is that just someone in a Rocketeer costume? Obviously, it is just someone in a costume, because the real Rocketeer would be flying through the sky instead of just walking on the ground. And it looks like he must be just getting started, because his bag looks rather empty. Hopefully he can fill it up with some good loot soon. Halloween Memories My sister and I used to always go trick-or-treating around our neighborhood when we were growing up, even if our costumes were not as elaborate as this.
