Holidays and a Giveaway

Do you remember this post from last year? I'm usually really against skipping holidays or rather, getting ahead. I like Christmas, but I prefer that it start in December and not June.

However, here I am in October dreaming about dancing around the house with the kiddos listening to Christmas music, watching Harry Potter (which I now consider a Christmas movie since ABC family plays it non stop in December) and the Grinch and reading Christmas books. I'm ready to decorate the tree and wrap presents.

I'm ready to make Christmas Cards (click here to see Shutterfly's awesome holiday collection) and lovingly mail them out to friends and family. I'm really excited because for the third year in a row I will be ordering my cards from Shutterfly. They released them a few weeks ago and they are so pretty! They have traditional colors, modern colors, religious and holiday cards as well as cards for pets. I don't have any pets, but I really love the pet cards.

I usually choose a more modern color scheme. Last year I chose aqua and red and I found a similar one this year that I liked, but this one matches my blog so well I might choose it!


Here's your chance to order cards from Shutterfly as well. Shutterfly has given me $50 to give to one reader to use on their website. You have to cover shipping and the offer cannot be combined with any other offers. (You can find sales and other promotions on their special offers page, I got a free photobook by checking there. I check often.)

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post saying whether or not you send holiday cards and if so, where do you get them from? 

You can get bonus entries for sharing this post on a social media platform (blog, facebook, twitter, etc) just leave one comment per entry. (One comment telling about the holiday cards, one comment for each social media share) The giveaway ends on October 24th, 2012. Winners will be chosen at random using random.org and will be notified by email, so please include your email address in your comments if you don't have it linked.

This post was sponsored by Shutterfly, but honestly, I would blog about their awesome services even without compensation! I just recently ordered some really awesome notepads and I always get my photo books from them.

Exiting giveaway! I've really gotten into Shutterfly this past year (have been doing photobooks... they offer such great, periodic discounts) and LOVE it! Am planning to use it to find the perfect Christmas card this year (since I've rarely sent a card at all in the past)!

I'll share this on my Facebook too! :)

We usually send holiday cards out to family. I normally wait for a sale to buy them, normally it happens to be with shutterfly.

I never have sent out holiday cards, but if I had $50 from Shutterfly thats probably what I would use it on! I got a photobook for Aaron last Christmas from Shutterfly and I was very happy with it!

I always send Christmas cards since we have so many out of town/state family and friends! I Usually use Wal-Mart but would love to try something different! And of course I will be using one of the beautiful photographs you did for us! Oh and Bring your gifts over and Jeff will wrap them for you :) LOL!

I always send out holiday cards and I almost always get them from Shutterfly (have for the last 3 years). I love getting them and seeing the pictures others send, and knowing they're thinking about us at least long enough to think we'd appreciate a card.

We have sent cards all 4 years we have been married. Now they are so much more fun because we get to send updated pics of our little cowboy. We love getting cards from all o our college friends who also now have kids! Is funny how quickly we change from self-centered to kid centered :) I'm always trying to find new designs for our cards. Shutterfly has some cute ideas!

Christmas cards are mandatory. PICTURE christmas cards a must now that I have a son that I want to pictured. Occasionally I will also send out picture cards for his birthday and Spring as well. Love them. I usually get them from Walgreens, Shutterfly or snapfish depending on how much I procrastinated ;-).

However, I LoVeD your cards last year and I am NOT procrastinating this year (getting pics taken this week--hmm hmm), so I would love to try Shutterfly, I've been happy with everything I have ever ordered from them!!!
