Holiday cards, Oh my!

Earlier this week my friend and awesome blogger Lisa at The Pennington Points invited me to join a group of mom bloggers for dinner (and ice cream). We had a great evening hanging out and discussing our Christmas traditions and plans.

We took lots of fun photos (you can check them out on Instagram and Twitter using the #cardworthy hashtag) and she brought sample cards from Shutterfly for us to look at. Now, I have known about Shutterfly for a long time – ordering a photobook from them has been on my “To Do” list – but I have never gotten around to ordering anything. I am now trying to decide which cute and fun Christmas cards to order once we take our Christmas photo this week.

Last year before Christmas (December 7th to be exact) I gave birth to The Bear and wasn’t up to planning photos. I dressed up the new baby in a fun outfit I received as a gift, had the pre-teen hold him in front of the tree and snapped a few photos with my Handsome’s fancy camera….on the auto setting of course since I am no photographer. They weren’t great, but I was proud of myself for taking the photos, having them printed and then signing, stuffing, addressing, stamping and mailing a TON of cards. Here are a few of those photos.

Shutterfly has a family photo site with tips for getting a holiday photo that reflects your family. I would encourage you to visit the site and watch their video to give you ideas and inspiration. I am looking forward to trying out the ideas I have come up with.

For those of you who already have a great photo, Shutterfly has a Cardworthy Facebook Contest where they are giving away prizes including a dream trip for a family of four. It ends tonight so check it out fast.

Are you excited about getting your cards put together? Well guess what? Shutterfly has graciously given me a $50 credit to give away to you all! Leave me a blog post below, the giveaway ends December 14th.
