Christmas Cards

Christmas cards are not my favorite part of the holidays. Oh I love getting them, I even have a cute little wreath I got from GoodWill (need to spray paint it, not a fan of gold) to put them on and enjoy...but doing them. Not my favorite.

However, I am anticipating some reprieve this year. We did "Rosebud's" birth announcements with Shutterfly this year, and I loved the results (I know many of you who received one did too). One of the reasons I was so excited to get to borrow my aunt's camera was to be able to do Christmas pictures of the kids this year. I will upload them to Shutterfly and create my own photo cards!

Shuttterfly also offers personalized Christmas Gift Tags, and invitations to holiday parties.

I also use Shutterfly to "scrapbook" for my family. While I still do traditional scrapbooking (you know, in my "free time") for the kids first three years, after that I am using photo books. We've done several family vacation books with Shutterfly and have been very happy with the quality, price, and expediency of delivery. I am making a book for the kids for Christmas, and ABC book about our trip to the Detroit Zoo this fall.

I am doing this post (which is obviously an advertisement) because I am participating in an opportunity Shutterfly is giving bloggers to get free photocards. I'd like to thank them for the offer as I do love their products and am eager to share them with you.

What a great offer! I just haven't gotten around to taking any good pics of my kids that I could use!

You are so good to share this... I had not even THOUGHT of Christmas cards yet!! Ugh. We are on vacation for the first 2 weeks of December, so I had better get my butt in gear!

Blessings-

I thought that was a lot of "Shutterfly" I do love them when I have a decent coupon code.
