She's Making a List.. And Checking it Twice..

A Christmas card address list, that is!

I can hardly believe it. It's barely November and the storefronts have quickly rid themselves of everything Fall. Swapping out shelves of pumpkins and apple spice candles and replacing them with rolls of wrapping papers covered in reindeer, stocking stuffers jingling with the sound of tiny silver bells and thousands of sparkling little twinkle lights.

If you're anything like me, you've already begun thinking about which Christmas cards you'll be sending out this year and where you'll be ordering them from. For me it's a no-brainer. I've always ordered my Christmas cards from Shutterfly and couldn't be happier with their large array of designs to choose from. Not only have I ordered Christmas cards from them, but I've also ordered their photo books and even Carter's birth annoucements!

This year, I have my eyes set on ordering this card. You all know I'm a sucker for anything monogrammed and/or personalized and I can just picture a darling "M" surrounded by sweet pictures of both Sheepie and Baby C.

Or wait, what about this one? I've always been impressed with the feel of their premium photo cardstock and continue to receive dozens of compliments each year when I send out our holiday greetings. I just love the special "It's a Wonderful Life" quote.. and I certainly cannot disagree!

Each year as the holiday season begins to show itself both in store windows and on the radio, I can't help but wish that I had the time (and money) to throw a fabulous Christmas party. The kind of party where everyone shows up dressed to the 9's and champagne is served in sparkling crystal stemware. Conversation hums above the faint din of Christmas carols piped throughout the house. Maybe one day I'll have energy to throw such a soiree and when I do, I will most definitely be turning to Shutterfly for my invitations! How classy and chic are these? Once again, I'm a sucker for that monogram!

Last but certainly not least, in the spirit of giving, how darling are these personalized gift tags? Not only do I pride myself as a fabulous gift-giver, but I also love to take careful note of how I wrap each gift for both my family and friends. These gift tags would be the perfect addition to any pretty package!

I must say, Shutterfly. You've done it again! I can't wait to share with you, as well as my family and friends, the Christmas cards we've chosen to send out this year! Thank you, Shutterfly for offering such a vast array of options at such affordable prices!

Please note the opinions expressed in this blog are true, honest and 100% my own. I am not being compensated monetarily for these opinions although Shutterfly is offering bloggers 50 free holiday cards for expressing their opinions regarding their Shutterfly experience as well as the 2010 holiday card design line.

  4. I love shuterfly! And everything you posted looks great. I adore getting Christmas cards probably more than gifts! ha!

  5. I love Shutterfly! We always get our Christmas cards from them and like you I've done photo books and the little one's birth announcement there. I am ridiculously excited for our cards this year. I might love mailing out cards a bit too much =)

  6. I KNOW! I can't believe that it is already time to start sending holiday cards again! Where did 2010 go?!

  7. I ordered from this year after hearing all the raves and I have to say, I am not pleased with the quality. Maybe I should email them actually...because I have since seen/heard about better deals and quality elsewhere. I am just annoyed.

  8. I can't believe it's already time to start ordering Christmas Cards! You made my brain wheels start turning!
