Shutterfly is Worth Postponing a Privacy Setting For!

I've got a little business to take care of before withdrawing from the world...

Did you know that as a blogger, you can get 50 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly?!  All you have to do is blog about it, including a few links to your favorite products and promoting your post on Facebook or Twitter!  You know my 50 free will get put to good use, but not until I pull every last strand of hair out getting the "perfect" photo...see last year's marathon photo session here...

So anywho, I've been perusing Shutterfly's amazing catalog of Christmas cards and I've found the cutest designs here: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards

I'm thinking this card...



...would work out well with this photo (giggle!):




It would be great if I could manage something classy like this card,

but I'm thinking with my unruly bunch, it probably would never materialize and I'd have to ship my kids off to China in frustration.  So we'll probably end up going with this sweet card:


and this photo:


'cause, you know, we're jolly like that. 
 Besides, I imagine shipping a collective 70 pounds off to China would be pretty expensive.

I'm also planning on making some calendars to give as gifts: http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars.  The wall calendars are my favorite because you can customize them in such cute ways, like put a picture of the whoever's birthday it is right in the date square of that particular month! 

The cool thing about doing this blog promotion is that now I see how easy it is to use Shutterfly and how many fun things there are to create.  I'm probably going to make the kids' birthday invitations on Shutterfly from now on.  Cutest selection EVER: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/birthday-cards-stationery.  Check it out.

Fellow bloggers, hop on the bandwagon and get your 50 free Christmas cards too!

I did the Shutterfly "thing" and I just ordered my 50 free cards TODAY! They really do have a great selection. So, for those of you out there wondering if this is legitimate, I can tell yo uit is. I blogged, they sent me a promo code, and I got 50 free Christmas cards. I did have to pay shipping, but $8 for 50 Christmas cards is a great deal!
