It's Time for Shutterfly Holiday Cards!!!

Those of us in the Northeast that got pummeled with an early snow pretty much lost the whole first week of November.  No power....it has been a mess.  But now that most of us are restored (and my heart goes out to those that are in day ELEVEN without power), it is time to look at the calendar and realize....

 
EEEEEKKKKKK!!!  Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away, which means that Christmas is 45days away (Hanukkah is 41, Kwaanza is 46, and Yule is 42....if I missed your holiday....SORRY!)

 
We still send out Holiday Greetings to our family and friends, and for years we have used Shutterfly for our holiday card needs.  They were one of the first to offer multiple picture options on the cards, which has always worked out great for us.  They have a huge selection of cards...whimsical, traditional....folded or flat....1 picture up to 9 pictures!!

 
I had fun looking through the selection and picking out my favorites.  It was tough!!!  I have narrowed it down to these gorgeous selections:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
I know some of you don't send out holiday greetings....and that is a-ok!!!  Shutterfly has you covered for other greeting card needs!!!  They have soooo cute birth announcements too....in case any of you are expecting a new bundle of joy, or are thinking about it.  They are so cute, they ALMOST make me want another baby....just to send out the card!  (I jest....our family is done!!  But...... ;) )

 
Shutterfly also has so many other options available.  Two years ago, we made a photo book as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law.  We featured pictures of my in-laws with the kids from birth through Easter 2009, which was shortly before my father-in-law passed away.  I was able to pick layouts and backgrounds that fit each picture to a tee....I even found one that looked like a shed....which featured one of the last, and best pictures of my father-in-law.  The reason it was perfect?  The picture was taken in his shed...one of his favorite places.  My mother-in-law loved it.

 
If you have used Shutterfly before, you know they are awesome. If you haven't, now is the time to try them!!!  And in order to entice you.....I have not 1, not 2, but THREE giveaways for you!!!!!  Shutterfly generously gave me (3) codes good for 25 FREE cards....you just need to pay shipping!  C'mon, you know you are all excited!

  13. My favorite song is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". Except when it's "O Come All Ye Faithful". Or when it's "Silent Night". It's so hard to choose just one.

  15. I use Shutterfly every year to make calendars with pictures of my children. We give them to my parents and my husband's parents for Christmas. They are very easy to make and always their favorite gift!
