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.

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 Haven’t those all been replaced by those fancy new energy-saving LED bulbs? But then haven’t blueprints been replaced by newer copies and electronic versions?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

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.

Burns Family Christmas Card 2022

Burnsland
As you may know, each year we try to come up with an entertaining Christmas card to send out to family and friends. Our cards are usually nothing too serious. Just something to bring a little Christmas joy. See some of our past cards here. As with last year, there was not a good time to get a photo of the three of us together, especially the kind of staged photo similar to what we have done in the past.

A Christmas Tiki for December

Merry Christmas! A jolly tiki out in the snow wishes you a Merry Christmas as the newest member of the Tiki of the Month Club from Steve’s Sketchbook. Usually, you would find a tiki somewhere warm, such as at the beach on a tropical island. But just maybe there could be a tiki at the North Pole, too. Santa Claus strikes me as being an eclectic decorator, after all. So why would he not have a tiki somewhere near his workshop?

Burns Family Christmas Card 2021

Burnsland
Christmas Greetings! Each year, we send out a Christmas card to family and friends. And each year we try to make our Christmas card just a little different from everyone else’s, to bring a smile and some Christmas joy to whoever we can. Usually, those Christmas cards involve some sort of photo of us, often inspired by what has happened that year. See some of our past cards here. However, this year we were faced with a little bit of a challenge.

Mobius the Christmas Goat

Burnsland
Merry Christmas! Mobius the goat wishes you a Merry Christmas! And while Mobius is not actually Santa Claus, he thinks it is fun to play the part from time to time. Mobius hopes that Santa is really good to you this year! Mobius the Goat has appeared in various situations during this past year, becoming the more or less official mascot of Burnsland. But I think this one is my favorite so far.

Burns Family Christmas Card 2020

Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year! As has become our custom, we sent out our very special Christmas card once again this year. Our philosophy is to send out something unique, something that you won’t get from anyone else. And we also want to make you smile a little, too. That’s our goal. See some of our past cards here. When Laura and I were talking about what to do for our Christmas card, we wanted to do something different from past years, and perhaps something tied to this (hopefully) unique year of 2020.
