'Tis The Season...

...for holiday parties, endless gift shopping, and Christmas cards!!

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love mail this time of year, especially because of my years spent as a nanny. It never fails that even if I haven't heard from a family I worked for five years ago all year, I'll inevitably open up my mailbox one cold (ha! It was nearly 80 here today!!) December day to see their (albeit older) beautiful smiling faces. And who better to get your holiday cards from than the picture experts at Shutterfly?!?!

Each year it seems that almost every single card that pours in is from Shutterfly, and I absolutely adore checking out the enormous variety they offer with regards to their designs!

If you haven't been over to their site yet this year to place your order, the time is now! What are you waiting for? Click here to go straight over to their huge holiday card selection and choose your own from their plethora of designs. Even if Christmas isn't your thing, I can assure you there'll be a card for you to personalize with the message and background of your choice!

If holiday cards in general don't float your boat, or you're looking for that extra special gift for a relative this year, what better gift can you give than a personalized calendar or photo mug with your wee ones picture! Seeing as how this is Ava's first Christmas, I know that my family wants nothing more than to see her cheesy little grin plastered anywhere and everywhere they can!

For my own holiday cards, I'm torn between a few different designs. Care to vote?

1.I love the simplicity and focus on the one image...

2.My biggest issue with this one is the main color being blue...not that Christmas-y, but pretty just the same!

3.Love the multi-image format, particularly given the thousands of pics I've taken this year...


  1. I love the first one, especially if you're only using one picture and want the focus to be on Ava!! I knew I wanted 2-3 pictures so it was hard finding a design to fit the photos I was using. But Shutterfly is awesome and I had fun designing our card. Can't wait to see your finished product!

  2. My vote goes for # 1. It's a beautiful card that really says Christmastime. :-)
