I wrote yesterday about how I can’t believe it’s November and I also can’t believe that the holidays are just around the corner! I don’t mind it all, truthfully, because Steve and I have agreed that part of our goal is to do Thanksgiving and Christmas as low key and least stressful as possible. This usually means we spend both holidays drinking booze, watching holiday themed movies or TV and eating delicious food. But I do love the holiday season and I always get excited to buy presents and plan menus and attend parties (I’ll be attending the first holiday party for my new job this year and am SUPER EXCITED because my old work had stopped doing them). And I am vowing to do it all while making it as easy as possible on myself, so that I can enjoy the holidays without stressing myself out.
Enter Shutterfly. Y’all know them, right? They are an awesome personal publishing service that pretty much lets you do AMAZING things with all of those photos cluttering up your hard drive.
I have been using Shutterfly exclusively for years – I print my photos from there, small personal ones for frames, large ones for display. I’ve gotten anything from 4×6″ all the way up to 20×30″ and they’ve come out beautifully everytime (I especially love the ability to print with a matte finish – I am no glossy photo girl). I’ve made photobooks of our vacation. And last year, we got our Christmas cards from there, which turned out beautifully!
So when they approached me about promoting their Christmas cards I was all about it because I really do love their products and think everyone should know how awesome they are and how easy it makes sending your cards out. All you do is upload a photo, pick a design and boom, they come to your house ready to be addressed and sent out. And they have some seriously great designs, like these holiday cards:
What’s even cooler is that you can take some of your photos that you uploaded and used for the cards and turn them into holiday gifts, like an ornament or a mousepad or a fleece blanket. They even have photo playing cards!
AND the best part is, I can share all of this awesomeness with THREE of you because Shutterfly has generously given me three codes for 25 FREE CARDS for you! All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite part of the holiday season is.
The contest (and comments) will close on Sunday, November 13th at 11:59pm Eastern time after which I will pick three random winners and send them off their promotion code for the 25 FREE photo cards. The codes are good through December 31st, 2011.
Don’t miss out or you’ll be a cotton headed ninny muggins!
Disclosure: Shutterfly provided me free product to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and I am not compensated to publish positive comments. This is my honest opinion and while I have generally shied away from doing sponsored posts in the past, I have no problem doing it for a company I love and whose products I have actively used long before partnering with them on promotions.
