Loving Jesus, Loving Life

Right Around the Corner

I realize that Thanksgiving hasn’t even come to pass yet, so don’t get your undies in a bunch when I remind you that Christmas is coming!

As I look forward to celebrating Christ’s birth (and doing so in as non-chaotic of a way as possible), I am trying to plan ahead on my Christmas cards. I’m trying to stop being a last-minute kind of girl, and start being a plan-ahead kind of girl. It would make life so much easier in the long-run, wouldn’t it?

Anyway, you all know I like to be frugal, so I’ve done different things throughout the years for our Christmas greetings…usually Sam’s Club ($.25/card) or just a plain 4×6 (cheap!), accompanied by a letter.

This year, Shutterfly is offering 50 free holiday cards for bloggers.

As I looked through their 10 FULL pages of holiday card designs (and my eyes began to cross), I chose a few that I really liked. (And trust me – they have a HUGE selection of ADORABLE cards!)

How about this one?

Or this one…

Or maybe this one?

Now, let’s be honest, these cards are much pricier than I’d normally go for (i.e. if I wasn’t getting them for free + shipping). But, if you have dollars in your pocket that are yearning to be spent on holiday cards, Shutterfly has some really beautiful designs!

And, I’d like to mention that I made an 8″x8″ photo book through them when Ava was a baby, and I was very pleased with the quality of the book as well as the ease of use with the design software. This is a good, solid company.

Now, dear friends, time to think about what we’re THANKFUL for…


  1. i liked the last 1 best:) and u could put a picture of each kid in the 4 spaces then a family one in the middle

  2. Molly – You’ll never believe it, but that’s exactly what I did today. Great minds think alike, right? 🙂

  3. Another really great, inexpensive option is to get postcards made on Vistaprint — they often have deals where things are free, and you just pay for shipping.
    I designed one in Photoshop last year and uploaded it to a blank postcard; I was WAY late in getting my act together, since the pictures were ones a friend took when we were in WI for Christmas:) So I paid for the super fast shipping…but since the cards were free, I still felt like it was a great deal.
    I put them in envelopes, but they are really nice quality and could definitely be used as postcards which would save on postage:)

  4. HAHAHA…got your card! we think alike! i knew you had to get the free cards for bloggers! i love your family picture!

    • Larissa – I know! I laughed when I saw yours, too! 🙂 Your family is adorable! I wish I could meet your kiddos (Philly reunion someday?). Zander was just a little squirt last time I saw you!
