Days til Christmas!!!!!!!!!  I know alot of people are very against thinking about Christmas until Thanksgiving is over but I seriously can't help myself!  It's my favorite time of year and waiting until after Thanksgiving just makes the celebrating too short in my opinion :)
My shopping lists have been made and I'm slowly whittling away at them.  Christmas parties are already being put on the calendar.  I've aleady marked on our calendar our official "Cutting our Christmas Tree" day! Pictures for our Christmas card are in two weeks. And that leaves Christmas cards to pick out! 
I have used Shutterfly in the past for our cards and have been SO pleased with the quality of them! Not to mention the time of delivery has been extremly promt in the past!  I love the variety of cards they have to choose from.  Another reason I love their site is that they have a feature along the side of their website which makes it easy to refine the choices of the card you are choosing.  Such as how many pictures you want on your card, whether you want a flat or folded card, your card size, etc.  This year I am wanting a card with just one picture, a flat card,  one that is made on premium card stock and that says Merry Christmas or something about Christ's birth somewhere on it.  I've found that Shutterfly has a wonderful variety of cards that reflect the True meaning of Christmas!
Here are a few of the cards I've marked as favorites...

So we shall we what I end up choosing!

Now...on to the good stuff!  If you have a blog and you are interested in Holiday cards...and you LOVE things that are free! Then here's the scoop!  Shutterfly is offering bloggers an opportunity to earn 50 free cards for simply blogging about their website (hence my little schpeel up above ;) ).  All you have to do is go here http://bit.ly/sfly2010.
Fill out the info and they will send you what you need to begin.  It does take about a week to receive an e-mail back from them so I suggest you get on it in order to get your cards back in time!
My friend Nichole and my mom both told me about this great opportunity.
So get on it and get your free cards! :)
Have a great Tuesday!


  1. I wondered if you saw this on my blog, but then saw you heard about it a few other places. :) I just posted about it yesterday and I already got my code! So exciting!

  2. Oooh, I better get on that! Thanks for sharing.

    I am excited for Christmas too.
    We have the elf on the shelf. Do you guys know about that? It's an elf, comes with a book to read to your kids, and every night the elf supposedly leaves to go tell Santa how they kids are behaving, and in the morning he is in a different spot and the kids have to find him! It's fun.

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Thanks! I will definitely sign up for the free cards.

    We have our first family wedding on December 18th, so a Family Wedding Pic will be on our card. They may not get mailed out until after Christmas, but I think everyone will understand. :)

    While I LOVE Thanksgiving, I don't mind sharing the month of Nov. between both holidays. I've already gotten most of the Christmas shopping done. (Not able to do a lot for presents this year, but I have gotten it DONE.)

    Hope your day is BLESSED!
