I Need A Little Christmas Card

It is the week before Thanksgiving and I haven't finished my Christmas cards.     How can this be?    Normally I have finished them, addressed them and have them ready to go in the mailbox on Black Friday!     Maybe it is because this year has been crazy and I am in denial about the fact that next week is Thanksgiving?   

No matter the reason, ignoring it won't make it go away!     I am so glad that I don't have to panic because I know that I can go to Shutterfly and order amazing Christmas cards and have them delivered straight to my front door.     I love Shutterfly.   I have been a fan forever.

Before there were the fancy picture frame to which you could upload your photos, I began making photo DVDs through Shutterfly and giving them to my husband for Christmas.    This is one of his favorite Christmas gifts ever.    He would load this as his screensaver on his computer at work and run it all year round. 

When Little Guy was born, I used Shutterfly's snapbooks all the time as one of his first learning tools.   I made quiet books that we could take into church with us.     Photo books of our family and friends so that he could learn names and relationships.    I even made photo books of special events.    Little Guy would look at these for hours and hours in the car, restaurant and church.

My mother-in-law still has a wall calendar that I made for her hanging in the kitchen.    That isn't a bad thing except that it isn't 2006 any more!   ha! ha!      Shutterfly has made their calendar feature even more fun because you can add photos and personalized dates straight onto your calendar.      Love that!     You can also buy one that is a 12 month or 18 month calendar which is GREAT if you homeschool and need to plan around the school year.

So now the hardest part will be picking a card from all the great choices!     So far these are the ones that I LOVE....
