We’ve had some rough years that left many of us in a precarious state as regards housing. Some people moved in with their parents, others moved in with friends, and still others moved to a different place for a new job, changing their life altogether.
Moving is never easy but sometimes the best choice you can make is to attempt to start anew. And moving to a different place, possibly with a different climate as well as new sights, attractions, and neighbors, can definitely help with that. And then a new job in a different place can help you situate yourself there. And oh, the glorious lunch breaks if you’re in a city!
Or you could be moving back home, to be closer to one or more special people in your life. That, too, has its own rewards. It can be a new start with a seemingly old hat, so to speak, but it will still be a new start. Places change, people do too, and, as they say, you can’t step in the same river twice. So kudos to you if you’re moving close to family and old friends. Surprises will be right around the corner, even in a smaller place, and even given the company of familiar faces, and surprises and change is what keeps us fresh/young 🙂
So good luck to all of you moving into a new home! May it be the beginning of a prosperous and inspiring new path! And to make things more fun, here are some some moving announcement photo cards, so you can notify your friends and family in style.

The card above is one of my favorites, but I also made a version with a more staid “We’ve Moved” statement (without the above flourishes, that is). So the front is different in that one respect. The back is the same as the one shown above.
I’ve also made some minimalistic designs. Here’s one of them, available in four colors: ocean blue, violet, orange, and purple (you can choose the color easily once you click to see the card on Zazzle). It works if you have only one good family photo, or if your personal style is more straightforward and you want the card to reflect that. Of course, it may happen that you simply like the frame idea, suggested by the four corners. And then if you like to showcase framed photos at home, or if you enjoy photography and have a few prints framed under glass in a way similar to the image below, you may resonate even more with my bared-to-essentials yet also a bit artsy design.
I also made some cute designs. I’m showing two of them: one with a teddy bear holding a “Thinking of you” banner, and one with a custom photo and illustrations of some marine life, more specifically a fish, a sea turtle, a starfish, and a nautilus shell. The latter one is meant for families who moved closer to a beach.
Tired yet? I hope not (even though I kept repeating the same design for the new address on the back of the last three examples, I know).
I have funny new home photo announcements too! The ones below are adapted from Christmas cards and include a short letter on the back as well. So if you haven’t sent out Christmas cards because you were busy preparing the move to a new home, now may be the chance to keep everyone updated on your life in a stylish yet fun way.
If you have three good photos of your family, and you prefer a minimalist, chic postcard rather than a funny card, here’s one I created recently.
I’ll stop here with the cards (if you want to see more minimalist photo moving announcement cards and postcards, see this other post of mine) and leave you with some designs for return address labels. You gotta have some of those as well as you announce your new home address. I made these labels in a slightly different style, for an added element of fun 🙂
Now I realize I should have some with cute dog illustrations as well.
Of course, with a dog it’s more complicated, because you almost can’t have a generic dog image—you suggest a certain breed, no matter how stylized the illustration. Well, I guess I’ll go with paws then. Here it is, for both dogs and cats! 🙂
Okay, that was it for now! Well, actually I have one more address label, to go with the cute beach-themed moving announcement card in this post. Here it is, with a starfish. Remember that you can customize it for a family as well.
I hope you enjoyed my presentation. If you found anything useful, I’d appreciate a pin or share!
To a happier, healthier life,
