Moving announcements devoid of flowery language and sentimentality #Moving#greeting cards#moving in together#new home October 10 | Cat Rocketship 1940s moving announcement sold by Rainy Day Dream Co on Etsy. New address notices are so often overlooked even though they're SO FUN to send. But most of them? They're all floral la-dee-da and decorative words about the warmth of home — which is great, but that might not feel right for you. Take a look at these ideas for cheeky (HA!) and less-than-usual moving announcements for your next move. Snark-central Some eCards has loads of pre-funnied notes, but when you can't find something that fits they've also got user-made cards. Borrow someone else's words or make your own — there are plenty of images to choose from if you want to announce your move without a trace of gravity.

Fix Typo Cat Rocketship I was the Managing Editor of Offbeat Home for a year and a half. I have a rich Internet life and also a pretty good real life. Hobbies include D&D, Twitter, and working on making our household more self-reliant. I also draw things.

I just took a picture of me and the family on the front steps of our new house, and sent off quick emails to my friends and family at the end of a long moving day, and they received those emails and my picture as a physical postcard in their mail! So easy. And SO much less trouble than sifting through countless boxes for stamps and envelopes! 1 agrees Reply I like the ones that look like moving boxes! I know the cat isn't actually hurt in the last image, but the I still find it disturbing. 0 agree Reply I've always like the idea of a moving announcement using that software that puts a google image of an address onto an envelope template. (Like this http://annabelvita.com/enveloped) I guess this could be pretty time consuming though – maybe a postcard version? 0 agree Reply I'm going to design our moving announcement cards. We're moving onto a street called Nimbus drive. So I'M gonna draw each of us all chibi-deformed and cute flying in from either side. I'll be riding a Nimbus 2000 (from Harry Potter) and my husband riding the Flying Nimbus (from Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) because they're the first things we thought of. Our friends will know they are just… us! Haha! 3 agree Reply Oh man, I have to admit we never even thought of sending out notifications. I mean, it makes total sense – we're still (six months in) getting asked where we're living now, have you moved yet, etc. But now… how late is too late to send out notices? And to whom should we send them? And will it sound like we're asking for a house-warming gift or something? I don't know the etiquette! gah! Maybe we will send out Halloween cards as an FYI…. 0 agree Reply these are great, how about "we secretly got married and decided to tell you all now" notes??? : ) 0 agree Reply Different site. 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
