Christmas Cards Anyone???

Before I had a family and kids, I never really put much thought into Christmas cards, sharing all my pictures, and keeping everyone in touch with what was going on in my life. This has drastically changed since having a kids especially. Now, I want to share their cuteness with everyone any chance I get. I have found this most easy by using Shutterfly. I have been using Shutterfly now for a few years and am in love!!!! Not only do I think they have the best prices for ordering prints, I love that they are delivered to my door AND they are in order!! This saves me not only money but time. And since I am crazy obsessed with taking kids of my pictures, I started a "share site" in which I can add family members to and they are not just able to view all my pictures, they are able to have them printed as well. Super easy and fun way to keep everyone in touch and in the loop as children seem to grow and change in the blink of an eye!

Since I have so many cute pictures of the babes and I definitely don't have enough wall space to sport all my pictures, I have started making photobooks. I made my first one last year for Eli for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it. Plus it is something that I am able to leave out and share with friends and family when they come over. This year for Christmas, I got almost all our family photobooks of the latest and greatest pictures so I didn't have to just pick a few pictures to give them.


Something new I tried this year for Christmas gifts is a calendar. Oh my goodness, these things are easy to make and they turn out adorable. I didn't initially order us one, but will be getting one with my next order for sure for our household.
I also have ordered Christmas cards, plaques, coffee mugs, luggage tags, notepads, and Miss Skylar's birth announcements. The quality of work is excellent and I have never had any complaint or issue. It would be safe to say that I am just a bit obsessed and love to find any excuse possible to use the site not only for myself, but for others.

Shutterfly has an amazing offer going on right now. Click HERE the link to find out how you can get 50 FREE photo cards.

This year I am completely torn on which Christmas card I should do for our family. There is just so much to choose from!! I think I might have narrowed it down to the following three, but every time I look around, there seems to be another one that I like just as much! Which one of these three do you guys all like???

I plan on taking pictures of the family...well mostly babes...the next weekend we have them so I can get them ordered. I am so excited to send them out. I loved going to our families houses (and friends) last year and seeing them out. And I love even more the ones that cute out the pictures to save and still have them up!
This is an amazing deal friends! Take advantage. You definitely will not be let down by the quality!!!

Awesome! I've always wanted to get the photo books on Shutterfly. When I created a book before it told me some of my photos weren't the correct resolution. :( So maybe with my new camera I'll actually get to create one at some point!

Everyone keeps selling Shutterfly right now! Are you being reimbursed? LOL.

I'll have to look into them. First I have to fight the battle of our attire. Ugh.
