so many choices

What's a girl to do?

I have quite a few more Christmas cards than usual to send out this year and am wondering how I am going to possibly have time to make them all? Lucky for me, Shutterfly is coming to the rescue!

And here's a whole page of special offers!

Nana, Papa and Oma are each getting one of these personalized mugs. I might have to accidentally order an extra one that says I heart Mommy! Plus, there's chocolate involved! Okay, I'll get one that says I heart DaDa, too!
My plan is to use kraft paper and gift bags for our holiday gift giving. With that in mind, don't you just think these gift tags would be adorable? 

I adore that the tops of the ribbon bows look like hearts. I'll use some baker's twine from The Twinery to tie the tags to our gifts and add that special touch of cuteness. Okay, done deal...added to my cart! You might notice that this design has address labels and thank you cards to match.

Last year was our first annual Christmas Goodies party. Everyone met at our house to sample all the cookies and goodies that had already been made with plenty of cold milk and hot coffee to go around! When I saw this invitation, I knew that the girls would love it! Who would want to miss this party?

And there are matching address labels for this design, too!

There's something about the square 5x5 card size that catches my eye this year. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get one photo of all three kids, or maybe even the five of us, looking in the same direction, this is the card. It's a departure from years past, as I tend to go with a more traditional look, but I love what a fun vibe this card gives! I'd love to have a wide shot of all of us holding hands walking toward the camera. I'll take a back up shot of us walking away from the camera, too, just in case.

Yep, this design also has matching address labels!

By  now, I'm sure you've spent more than $30, so be sure to take advantage of this awesome deal!

Gotta go...I have photos to take. Now, what will we wear?
