I've Got Mini Moos, How About You?

I ordered a set of MiniCards from Moo and they arrived yesterday. These little calling cards are so cute. They have my pictures, from Flickr, on the front and the back is imprinted with my name, e-mail address, and the URL for my blog. You can customize that however you would like.

I ordered a set of 100 cards and picked a large selection of my photos to use on the front of the cards. You can choose as many or as few photos as you would like. It was really easy to do because I was able to select any of the photos I had already uploaded to Flickr.


The cards are smaller than business cards - kind of an odd size. But I did find this nice little card holder on ETSY from Splatgirl Creates, It a great little size and holds about 20 cards. The case can be ordered with or without the little clip. Now - I just got to start handing them out. If you see me, be sure to ask for a card!

Now, I've got a picture of Sherman I'd thought I'd share. He's pictured here with his favorite toy. It is a stuffed duck that makes a kind of a honking sound when squeezed just right.

Sherman carries duckie with him all over the house and will often even fall asleep with it in his mouth. And when it is time to go outside, he carries it to the front door and leave it there until he comes back inside.

Poor duckie has seen better days, in fact I think duckie's days are numbered. This is the second duckie we've had. I think it may be time for a new one.

I like your Moos! Very colorful. And if I ever actually get a business going--visions of Etsy shops dancing through my head, and all--I might have to get some myself, now that I know about them!

those are great little calling cards! and not too expensive!

sherman is so cute - I love those ducks (I think they are called "Migrators" or something?) - my dogs tear apart anything stuffed!

Awww...look at the look on Sherman's face!!

If I had photography anywhere near as nice as yours I'd think about those Moos, but for now I'll just admire yours!

Sherman is so cute!! And I love the duck he carries around. Milo has become attached to a stuffed moose. Aren't pets just adorable. And the cards are lovely with your excellent pictures.

How cute are those cards! What a great idea, I love it! And your pictures are so beautiful, that's a great way to show off your knitting , stash and other knitting realted stuff.
Oh, Shermann, such a cute picture, it gives me a warm feeling just looking at him. Funny how the male dogs are so cute with their toys. Sam sometimes takes his plush bone with him outside to go pee, always in his mouth. When he goes to bed, he takes it with him. I'd like to know what they are thinking. Our female has no such cute mannerism.

Sherman is ADORABLE! My Luca has a stuffed lobster he is very fond of & a ball attached to a fox tail type thing that he carries around all the time. Henry has a blue weiner dog that he tries to kill everyday. They are funny because their toys are both too big for them.

I'm seeing so many moo cards out and about lately - such a great idea. Love Sherm's duck. Holli would have torn it to shreds and eaten the "squeeky" part in the first hour!

Those cards are so cute!

And Sherman is adorable too.

Completely fabulous cards ... but of course your photos are eminently card-worthy.

Why does that pic of Sherman make me think of Ernie and Mr. Hoots' immortal Sesame Street hit, "Put Down the Duckie"??

are you going to SAFF? because, i can see you handing out your cards there :) and now, i'm thinking ... have i asked you that question before?
so, if you are going to SAFF, how lame would that be for us to not meet until then? the cards are nice ... but your photography is very clean and coherent, ... which makes nice cards :)

I don't remember ever seeing that sheep shot--i love it! and i'm happy to see that the bursting water balloon is one of the cards :)

Mom said...

Does Sherman go through withdrawal when you take one duck away and give him another or does he get to keep all of them (kind of like a "duck stash")?
Those cards look great - is that something that I could put stained glass windows on the photo side and use as a kind of business card? If so we'll need to talk to teach me how to do it.

Gorgeous photos on the cards! I wish I had your fabulous photography skills!

Bobbi said...

those cards are so cute! and your pictures are so good, they look wonderful!

my dogs have that same toy, or they did, until the stuffing and the squeaker got ripped out.

Ava said...
