A picture is worth a thousand words

I am a huge fan of having pictures taken of my kids. Most of the time, the photos that I take aren't worth a darn. Hence, I usually let the professionals take them. As the end of the year approaches, I generally have lots of adorable images of the Rosebuds taking up space on my hard drive.

What to do with all those precious images?

It's time to share them, of course! And what better way to do that than with one of the hundreds of Christmas photo card options from Shutterfly. I have been perusing their site and drafting several different Christmas card options, and I am so impressed with how easy it is to use. Uploading photos is a cinch and you can refine your product search options by number of photos, format, size, paper type, and colors. Seriously, the hardest part of this whole process is deciding which of their designs to use for our 2010 Christmas Card.

Our Christmas cards usually look better in my head than when I actually design them, but I can't go wrong with the beautiful options from Shutterfly. I love this classy design with the monogram:

Shutterfly also has a plethora of Happy Holiday photo cards for those who don't celebrate Christmas. These are a nice option for us because we have several friends on our card list who celebrate Hanukkah.

Wait, there's more!

My parents are the kind of people who, if they want something, they buy it themselves. My mother flat out told me not to buy her clothes because she likes to pick them out and try them on before buying. All of this makes Christmas shopping more difficult. What do you buy the people who either have everything or want to buy it themselves? How about a personalized 2011 calendar with images of their beautiful grandchildren on it? Perfect! Shutterfly has a wide variety of wall or desk calendars for me to add my own photos and even all our birthdays and anniversaries. The best part? Shutterfly will remember those dates which makes creating future calendars even easier. Score!

I am so excited to show these products from Shutterfly to you. I honestly don't know what I have done in years past without them!

Happy Holidays!
