I've been a huge Shutterfly fan for many years. If you like to take a lot of photos from vacations, or other special events, you can quickly and easily create items like calendars, cards, canvas wall art, puzzles, and other great items!
I make several calendars each year as Christmas gifts. Once you enter in birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions, your list remains from year to year, and you can easily select which items you want included on the different calendars you create. Here was Ted's calendar from last year. Shutterfly is offering a new desk calendar this year that looks great!
Now, you're probably saying, I can get cards cheaper at the store, or I get my holiday cards half price at the end of the year. And exactly how many people remember those cards? Don't you prefer receiving cards that have photos? I know I do. Don't waste your money on cards that people are going to throw away. The only cards I keep are the ones with the pictures! Here is another sample of the many designs that you can select at Shutterfly. This was one of our Christmas cards.
The best part about Shutterfly are the discounts, free shipping offers, free photo offers, and other freebie codes they send you via email. Many of the calendars I've done are buy one, get one free, so you can't go wrong!
If you're really on the ball, you can select from the many Thanksgiving cards Shutterfly offers! Each design lets you know how many photos can be included.
So, what are you waiting for? The photos are already in your computer - just upload them to an album on Shutterfly's site, and let the creativity flow . . . . . .

When she passed away, her evil husband took all four of her cats to the humane society for a certain death as they were all older kitties. My parents and I rescued them - we found homes for two, Mom kept one, and I took Calvin. I definitely got the best deal! He was eleven when he came to live with us. I sure wish I had been fortunate to have him when he was younger. I can only imagine how adorable he was as a kitten because he was the most handsome mancat ever with eyes that made me melt!
Calvin never met a bed he didn't like, and he had so many different ones throughout the house. He got his car bed on his 16th birthday from a good Catster pal. He loved his wheels!

You still have time to make a difference in the Pink Ribbon Challenge over at The Breast Cancer Site. Every click they get counts toward funding mammograms. In three weeks, I'll be heading to Phoenix, Arizona, for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I walk 60 miles over three days!
