Hooray for Holiday Cards!

Yep, it’s that time again! Can you believe it? The holidays are just around the corner! I swear, just yesterday I was complaining about how hot and muggy it was outside. Now, its FREEZING!

So…what comes along with the cold weather? The holidays! And what comes along with the holidays? Holiday cards! If you remember from last year, I was way ahead of the game and got them ordered super early. This year? Not so much. But that’s ok, I still have a solid month to get them picked out, ordered, envelopes stuffed, addressed, and in the mail. Easy, right?! Sure, no problem!

When I first started thinking about the ol’ holiday card for this year (which I’ll admit, was only about a week ago…) I thought “I’ll make my own!” I mean, I’m creative, I like designing stuff, so I could totally do it, right? Sure. If I didn’t have a job, and a house, and a life. So, that was a nice thought.

Now, the past couple years I have ordered my cards from various online retailers. This year, however, I think I will be making the switch. The switch to Shutterfly. I currently have aaaallllll of my photos from the past couple years uploaded to another site. But I think from now on, I will be uploading to Shutterfly. This place is great, people! Their website is easy to use, uploads your photos in a jiffy, and have I talked about their Holiday Card selection yet? No? Oh, let me tell you about it.

It rocks.

Like, really rocks.

There are TONS of designs to choose from, they come in all different shapes and sizes, and they are all so fun! (well, there are some traditional ones too, if you like that sort of thing)

I have spent the last hour perusing just a small selection of the bazillion possible designs, and I am in love. Let me show you some of my favorites so far…

Aren’t they fun!? I could have gone on and on…but I really need to start cooking dinner. :)

Shutterfly not only has holiday cards, but they have other fun personalized things like mugs andinvitations. How cool is that!?

So, watch your mailboxes folks, you might just see one of these cards! Or, maybe not – there are about a million other designs to choose from… ;) And I won’t lie, I purposely left my favorites out of this post so that I won’t spoil the big holiday card surprise. :P
