Last year was my first year doing a photo holiday card. I forced Joey to don a Mickey Christmas hat when we went to Disney for my birthday and convinced a shopkeeper to snap a picture for us. I thought we were pretty darn cute.
(And I would have uploaded a picture of that card here if only I could remember who I had ordered them from last year.)
I knew I wanted to do photo cards again this year since I could make sure EVERYONE knew that Jellybean was on his way then! I just didn't know who I was going to get them through since you know - we're broke.
Then I was reading one of my favorite blogs Confessions of a Young Married Couple where Katie happened to mention that Shutterfly was running an awesome promotion. If you blog about your Shutterfly Christmas cards, then you get 50 Christmas cards for free! I immediately knew I had to participate in this one!
I'm already a big fan. I have used them for prints from our wedding along with a photo book. I know that I will be using them again after our maternity shoot and Jellybean's newborn photos. I may even put together a little calendar for family and friends since Jellybean is due so early in the year. I’ve also given picture albums to people and those make great little gifts. I'm also considering doing something with the great canvas wall art they have once Jellybean is here. Of course I'll probably have to do the same for the pets so they don't get jealous!
With all that in mind I made sure to get a couple cute pictures with the hubby when we went to the corn maze on Saturday. I'll be playing with them in Photoshop and then I have to pick out our Christmas card. Which will be no easy task since they have so many cute ones to choose from!
There's this one -
But I could throw some of Jellybean's ultrasound photos on this one-
Luckily I don't have to choose right now.
The great thing is that you can get in on this deal too no matter the size of your blog just head over to Shutterfly and register your blog. Now, I'm off to eat the dinner complete with fresh corn the hubby just cooked for me!
