I LOVE Christmas cards!
Living in different cities for the past 7 years, we've accumulated friends who live all over the country. A lot of these friends are very dear to us as they have been our family away from family, and have been through some major life experiences with us. So, when Christmas time rolls around, we really enjoy getting Christmas cards with pictures, letters and updates on people's lives. To me, the fact that someone would spend the time and effort to send us a card communicates love!
AND, Shutterfly.com has some really cute cards. Such as their Photo Christmas cards. I think its a great idea to have the card and photo be one. Then you can artistically arrange your pictures and choose a color and message that suit you. I think my favorite Christmas card right now is this one.
I have used Shutterfly for several things in the past. Every year, I use Shutterfly to make wall calendars for grandparents and great-grandparents. The photos are really easy to upload, and arrange on the calendar. I also have made a photo book of our family for 2008 (and plan to for 2009 and 2010 once I get my act together!).
I also find that Shutterfly often has great sales and free shipping. So, not only am I getting top of the line photos, but good deals on them. Their layouts and backgrounds make it very simple to use. They even have a feature that will fill in the calendar or book for you once you have uploaded your pictures. Amazing!
