A Gift For You

I was shooting some pics around our church building today of the Christmas decorations that were put up a few days ago (it's awesome to have professional decorators and lots of helping hands in the church body). My goal was to find a few shots that I could use for graphics for church marketing stuff in December.

Below are a few of my favorite shots, and because it's the giving season, I thought I'd share them with you. They'd make great desktop backgrounds, Christmas postcards, or even a seasonal blog header. If you'd like, feel free to download them to your computer and enjoy!

Dang it! I submitted the design for our Christmas Eve postcards to the printers yesterday. The first one would have been great. I'll keep it for next year! Thanks!!!

Adrienne said...

Thanks! Are these the actual photos or did you do some photoshopping to them? They are lovely! Well, not sure about the last one but the rest are all brilliant!

Thanks! Happy Christmas!

The first, third, and fourth would be great backgrounds for posters / postcards etc. Nice shots!

How thoughtful Nate!
I just redid my header otherwise I'd be downloading my favorite for sure. I'll keep them in mind though as I always have a bunch of projects in the works.

Merry Christmas!


Just wondering...
Is being in your home by Christmas a possibility? You have a talented group of family and friends helping you out, that's for sure!

That was very kind! I love the shots!

I know you occassionally visit "mycharimingkids" and wondered if one of these days you could give us all a short photography lesson on one thing that you find useful in your shoots. McMama recently did that and I learned so much about ISO!

Thanks for sharing!

I just checked out "Pattysues" blog....read her story and shared in some really beautiful pictures of the two of you. Just thought I let you know that I was thinking of you both today and wondering how she was feeling through the cold weather and all? Keep you all in my prayers.

God Bless

Looks great!

On a side note, I know you have a large group of followes here on your blog so could you please send out a prayer request for a little girl who is in the hospital fighting for her life. She is 10 months old and swallowed a battery and it leaked for 6 days in her before it was found. Here is her blog link:

I set the first one as my background at work. It looks beautiful! Thx.

Nanette said...

This is the second time in ...oh...I don't know maybe 3 months or so... I was actually staying in an extra bed in the hospital with my husband. This time I'm going to follow... wow, it impressed me then and has again. My hubby has real serious health problems, but you are amazing!

Thanks for sharing! One of the backgrounds came in handy today as I was finishing a video for our German exchange student's Christmas present. Have a wonderful and safe trip to NJ. Enjoy the time off from blogging and loving on your beautiful girls!
