Christmas Tree Postage Stamps

Here you will find a fun artistic selection of Christmas trees on USPS postage stamps. These stamps are printed by Zazzle and are legal to use on mail within the United States.

If you like getting in the dancing spirit over the Christmas holidays, you're apt to enjoy this scene of a Christmas tree rocking and dancing with Mr. Snowman, out in the snow.


This simple design features two outline drawings of Christmas trees done in white, on a light blue background. The shown text says, Save the date, and can be easily customized to your holiday greeting on the provided template form.


This tree is decorated in white Christmas balls and red and blue ribbon for a patriotic look. There is a template placeholder under the tree for you to easily customize the year, or type in a short name.


For a unique look and/or to promote a night time event, this tree is made up of silver stars on a black background. The message says, Happy Holidays.


This fun artistic tree is decorated with red and blue lights and blue garland, and an orange star. It is painted with dots, a technique that is called pointillism.


For some people, the tree isn't purr-fect unless there are some playful cats playing under the tree. This design features two cats who have gotten some toys off of the Christmas tree.


I hope that you have enjoyed this selection; the original designs were painted by me.

Cute Pug Christmas Cards and Ornaments

Pugs are so cute. Here you will find artwork of a cute pug that I saw while on a neighborhood walk. I've gone on this route quite a few times and had seen this friendly girl out with her owner. One day I even got to take her for a walk. I was amazed and impressed with how quick her pace was. I had to pick mine up a bit.

I asked her owner if it would be okay for me to paint a picture of her, and for me to place it on cards, etc., and that I would give her the original painting. She accepted my offer and I also gave her some original pug cards. She wasn't actually wearing the Santa hat and bow, I painted and added those on after her friendly pose. Isn't she adorable; she looks so happy.


Here she is on a matching ornament; her happy face is printed on both sides.


Hope you have enjoyed my painting of a cute pug. If you'd like to check out more of this cutie on Christmas products, you can view them here:

Unique Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Christmas is a fun time to display unique ornaments. We find it fun to commemorate certain events, likes, and more, on our Christmas tree; such as our baby's first Christmas, the year we celebrated with bows.

One unique way to decorate the tree is with family photos. On this snowflake ornament, you can add a photo of a family member under the Santa hat, so that it looks like they are wearing the hat.


Or perhaps you would prefer to have them pictured among some colorful Christmas balls!


On each of the above designs, you can simply click on the link, and then on the Change button next to the photo template placeholder. If you need to adjust the size and or the position of the photo, you can then click on Customize to make adjustments.

This unique Christmas tree ornament was painted with dots. You can easily change the year on the template forms, or even type in a short name.


If you like seeing a winter cabin scene, you can do that through your imagination and also an ornament! This one also as an option to add a year or a short name.


If you don't feel quite like celebrating in a traditional way, you can decorate with a simple design, like this chevron pattern of red and green dots on white. When I first decided that it might be possible to like Christmas again, we decorated our tree with nothing but bows. We went out and purchased all kinds of ribbon and tied bows on the tree. That ended up being pretty cool. So if you want something a bit different, you're welcome to go for dots or chevron patterns! Whatever you choose to enjoy.


Blessings to you and may you have a wonderful seasonal holiday, and a happy New Year.
