I hear those sleigh bells ringing...

Now that it's November I have Christmas on my mind. I can't believe I have a little over a month left to do everything! One of the things I need to do is get Cayden's Christmas pictures taken, put them on some cards, and actually SEND THEM OUT. I spent money we didn't really have getting his birth announcements/thank you cards from after he was born and I never mailed them (they are currently collecting dust under my coffee table). I was really angry at myself and now it seems a little ridiculous to do it when he's 3 and a half months old. HOWEVER, baby's first Christmas is a big deal and I want to get something that we can hold onto forever. I found a good deal at a local photography studio and I'm going to get pictures taken and put them on holiday cards. And I'm mailing them out people!

I love Shutterfly because I think they have the cutest designs, the best prices, and the pictures don't come out blurry (like Snapfish ALWAYS does). I got the opportunity to do a review in exchange for 50 free holiday cards. Bloggers, this is a great opportunity! Anyone can do it regardless of stats and the number of followers you have. If you're interested in doing it click here.

My style for Christmas cards is festive, but simple. I want you to know you're getting a Christmas card without getting assaulted by reindeers and snowmen. When browsing Shutterfly's Christmas card page I picked out a few of my absolute favorites!

Isn't this adorable? I love the contrast of the Christmas colors with a black and white photo. It looks fun and classic.

I also love this one. Of course the polka dots are my favorite part, and I also love the red and brown combination.

I just found out that Shutterfly also does invitations perfect for your holiday parties. How easy is that?

This one is my favorite! My mom always does a Christmas cookie swap during the holidays and it's something I look forward to every year

And did you know you can get gift tags as well? It's a one-stop-shop!

I found this one which matches one of my favorite cards!

So make sure you check out Shutterfly for your Christmas needs this year! If you sign up for a new account you get 50 free 4X6 prints! And if you don't want to pay shipping you can pick your prints up at Target, CVS, or Walgreens in an hour! Convenient for all you busy mamas!

Happy Holidays lovelies!
