The new and improved Shutterfly

I mentioned in my last post Christmas and the impending gift giving that is upon us. For most people Christmas also means "card sending". I thought I would share with you that I just finished perusing the always popular Shutterfly and am happy to report that they have some really fresh modern options this year! I was so impressed and slightly smitten with several of their cards. And considering the fact they are offering 50 free cards to bloggers I feel certain one of their designs may be making it into our friends and families mailboxes! I've also been considering turning some of our favorite photos into calendars and giving them as gifts, and they've got some great options for that as well. Last but not least, if you need a cute tag to attach to your gifts they've got you covered. I'm all about companies that make giving and doing it in style a little easier and this year Shutterfly fits the bill! Happy hunting!

Just a thought...

With Christmas around the corner I know I've got what to give on my mind! One of the things that makes such a wonderful present (I know it's become a staple item for me, especially for grandparents) is a great framed photo of your family and kiddo's.

I have found that I really enjoy life on the other side of a camera lens. So for anyone out there who is local to me (San Antonio area, with a weekend or two in Abilene coming up) I would be more than happy to snap your family. I'm not thrilled at the thought of the printing process so you would receive a disc with all of your photos and they would be yours to print, email, and use in whatever way you see fit! The cost for a session and CD would be $100.

It's just a thought, but if anyone is interested please feel free to email me at

Happy Gift Hunting!

p.s. I'm not going to be doing any Christmas card designing this year...I just don't have the time. But, I highly recommend heading over to Minted it's like heaven for paper lovers!
