Eve's destiny? FULFILLED.
Anyway. Since it's November and I can use the word "holiday" AND I have an adorable photo of my child, it occurs to me that I should maybe consider sending out a holiday card this year. (Last year? Eve's first Christmas? Yeah, no. Didn't happen. MOMFAIL.)
Luckily, it JUST SO HAPPENS that Shutterfly is working with Clever Girls Collective on an awesome promotion. It goes like this:
- I'm going to tell you about their fantabulous holiday photo card collection.
- Then you look at the collection.
- Then YOU blog about their collection, and YOU get 50 free holiday photo cards. Rawk, right?
So let me just start by saying that I love Shutterfly. Even though there are a gazillion other options out there, including artsy-fartsier competitors, I ended up using Shutterfly for Eve's birth announcement. In the end, I found their user interface (LOOKOUT! I'M USING TECHNICAL TERMS) more straightforward and user-friendly than the others, including a site that is absolutely lovely and exceedingly popular (I won't call them out by name, but let's just say that it rhymes with Viney Hints).
Here was the birth announcement:
But, right. It's been a year-and-a-half. I should probably send another card out.
So here are my top three favorite designs from Shutterfly's holiday card collection, though it's actually a little overwhelming and hard to narrow down:
"Initially Chic Green Christmas Card"
I like the modern green color against the designer-y black and white. The only problem for our family with cards that emphasize initials -- while minimalist, which I love -- is that I didn't change my last name, so we can't pick just one initial. Oh, well.
"Cheery Year Powder 2010 Christmas 5x7 folded Card"
I like cards that are more like New Year's cards than any other holiday, because I think no matter who you are or what culture/holidays/traditions you celebrate, everyone likes ushering in a New Year together. (And champagne.)
But I think this one is probably my most favorite:
"Holiday Confetti Christmas Card"
It's just happy and festive and celebratory and colorful and cheery and sums up how I try to live my life. Happy Everything!
So, yep. That's my round-up. Remember, you can get 50 free cards yourself just for blogging about this great collection of Shuttefly cards -- click here for details. And WHO KNOWS. Maybe if we all get started like, this week, we'll not only pick the cards and order them, but actually send them, too.
It IS the season of miracles...
