Following the model I used for Christmas PhotoStamps in 2009, this year for many of my Christmas presents I used stamps.com (in the USA, and its Canadian counterpart) to create real postage stamps — featuring pictures that I knew would be special to each of my loved ones, mostly borrowed from FaceBook. In my 2009 article I used the “3D cube navigator” for presentation, but since this time I only made four stamps, I think I'll just go with the "flat out" approach.

It features a wooden statue that Lynnie took a fancy to in Montreal, and a shadow selfie of me in my role as Shaman at a recent New England Legacy Discovery.||This year Jillian got engaged to her longtime beau, Mike Nedoroscik. So here they are about to go out zip lining in Costa Rica. The Ring is shown as an inset as is the cake writing from their celebration at The Pig.|
I guess it's not something that you can do every year, not to mention that "no one" uses actual postage stamps anymore... but I still think that photo stamps is a good way to put a little creative juice to work and come up with something memorable — especially for people who already have everything you could possibly imagine.
