Dear blogging friends, click here to find out how you can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly this season!
The time is nearly upon us. The snow is falling and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Soon we'll be designing and addressing and mailing our Christmas cards. And my favorite part? Receiving cards from friends! Therefore, it's time for the Olsens to start thinking about which holiday card to choose this season. Where to start?
One of my very favorite photo sites is Shutterfly. Two years ago, we sent out Christmas cards announcing that we were expecting. The cards came from Shutterfly. We also ordered a few cute cards this summer with Ella's one year pictures. The cards are always beautifully done. We've even framed a couple. They make the process of designing a photo book on your own incredibly simple. I've made one with pictures of our honeymoon in Jamaica in 2007 and one from our family trip to Maine last May. And another Shutterfly favorite? They very often have special deals for free shipping or other discounts.
I haven't decided yet which card we'll go with for this Christmas. Shutterfly has hundreds of holiday card designs. Some use just one photo:
Others have space for multiple photos, for those of us who have a hard time choosing just one to represent an entire year.
If you're looking for a perfectly personalized Christmas gift, I have to recommend a Shutterfly calendar. We've made them a few times. They are available in many designs and can start in any month, making them great to give at any time of year.
And there you have it! Just a little holiday encouragement for you as the season approaches. Enjoy!
