Shutterfly Christmas Cards

Truth be told, I have already ordered Christmas cards this year. I’ve even mailed out the first wave of them to some family and friends.

[Side note: Before Baby came along, I could knock these out in an hour. Now, it’s more like a week!]

The problem is … I found another website that offers some really cute options.

Shutterfly cards are so, so cute! They have a great selection of holiday cards and I can’t help but to want to order a whole new set for this season.
I really like the Christmas photo cards like this one:

I don’t know what my deal is lately, but I’ve been a bit obsessed with the red and brown color combination, and I think these are just too cute for words!

The one that has really caught my eye, though, is this one:

I first saw it on another friend’s blog, and if I’m really honest, it was this card in particular that cemented my decision to order another round of Christmas cards this year. Even if it means that I’m the weirdo who sends out two cards. Even if it means having to address and stamp dozens more cards in this already busy holiday season. Heck, even if it means that I just have a stash of these cards in a box on my shelf forever.

It’s just such a sweet idea, and I can’t help but to want to commemorate what is basically the first year of my sweet little girl’s life. I haven’t placed my order yet, but I’ve been looking through pictures from the past year, and I just can’t believe how much she has changed in such a short time!

I’m also thinking about putting together a wall calendar. My friend noted how much fun it would be to put a picture from each month of Baby’s life in 2010 and have that to reflect back on in 2011.

Honestly, this could either be a really fantastic way to reminisce, or it could have this sentimental mama in tears on a regular basis!

  1. We did that for our 2010 of 2009. Ultrasounds/sideshots, then in of Marin began. :) I would like to do that again this year, I just need to sit down and DO IT. It is an amazing way to document your life, and see where you were exactly a year prior....I highly recommend.

  2. I want to get a calendar together too! I will do it this year. :)

    Thankfully my Christmas cards are done and in the mail!

  3. I LOVE that last card! I didn't see it in my quest for Christmas cards this year, but it is so cute! :)

  4. we totally did shutterfly cards this year. Forget which one. I obsessively go way to far competing with myself from last years card. Don't be like me. Either way your cards will be great! I like the 2nd one best if you ask me.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
