I’m excited to spread Holiday cheer!
If you’re a Pinterest addict like I am … you’ve probably seen the photo of Santa caught on camera. It’s created by I Caught Santa, a unique website that helps parents create proof that Santa is real. Not that my 4-year-old is questioning anything yet. But this will hopefully at least stretch it out a little longer.
I hope you join me in my excitement to “catch” Santa in your house!
For those who would like to keep the belief alive as well, will be very pleased to learn how to obtain photographic evidence of the big guy in your home. It will be priceless to watch your child’s face fill with wonder, delight, and surprise when they find a picture of Santa in front of their tree or fireplace or sofa!
I’ve played around with the website but I haven’t yet made our official picture to leave for the boys. It is SOOOO easy to do. The main reason I haven’t yet clicked the “order” button is because I want about 10 different pictures. I’m having a hard time choosing. But here are some pictures that other Moms and Dads have done…
Creating your own picture is a simple process.
Just take a picture of the spot you want Santa to be shown in (make sure it’s a spot your child(ren) will recognize as being your house. ie: I’ll make sure that our fireplace doors will be open as it always is on Christmas morning).
Upload it to the site.
Then select a Santa to use from the 20 available poses.
You can really make it look authentic if you work with the tools to rotate, size, flip, and brighten. You can also choose from several border styles to jazz it up.
Once you confirm your digital image, payment is made, you will then be able to download the image to your computer to print, email, or share via facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites. The image you download is the product that you are purchasing. They do not send you a photo.
The nice folks at I Caught Santa have given my readers a 25% code to use as often as you wish. Just enter SAVE25 at checkout to receive 25% off your total purchase.
