Holly Jolly

I was thinking this morning about holiday planning stuff and realized that I need to get on the ball in a pretty major way.  So this is where I launch into full-on confession mode.  Well no, what I’m actually launching into is full-on-awknowledging-that-I-am-as-cheesy-as-you-already-know-that-I-am mode.  Does that make any sense?  Lemme ‘splain.

I have been in semi-denial for years that I actually love a lot of stuff that us young folks are supposed to be too cool for.  I read crafty blogs like it’s my job, I love glitter, I love good thick paper, I love holiday decorations, I love (most) Christmas Carols, I love spending my time thinking about cupcakes and slip covers and organizational bins, and tiny clothespins, and coordinating nurseries and whatever else goes on to this list of domestic cheese.  And while working and being a mama and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life does not currently allow me to be the domestic diva that I aspire to be, rest assured that the life that I’m living in my mind always smells like baked apples and is outlined with the loveliest of felt tipped pens.  So with that in mind, here we go…

It’s Holiday Card Time, friends.  I am not making our cards this year as I have sometimes done, because…well.  You know.  I’m just not.  So I’m ordering them from Shutterfly, and I thought that today I would take you on a brief tour of what the fine folks at Shutterfly are offering for all of our holiday paper eye candy needs…


Gift Tags:

And my personal favorite…Stickers!

But this is really just the tip of the iceberg.  They also make great photo books and calendars and pretty much anything else that you think about sticking a picture to and sharing as a gift.  And guess what?  Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly! Sign up here: http://bit.ly/sfly2010

So that’s the gist, thank you Shutterfly, and thank you friends for putting up with me, my cheesiness, and this shameless commerce promotion!

    • I love these! My sister-in-law gave them to us as a Christmas gift last year (neat idea, no?) and I have loved sending Asher’s little mug around on cards; USPS definitely hit the nail on the head with these!

    • You know, I would say that it’s definitely worth it if you have the time!! I am always SO impressed with the few handmade cards that we get each year, they really speak volumes!
