Shameless Shilling for Shutterfly by Amanda

Normally, Noah and I make elaborate handmade holiday cards with funny themed letters about our year’s adventures; they are a perfect blend of my craftiness and Noah’s comedy. This year we are going with a photo card from Shutterfly. Let me tell you why:

  • We have 5 month old twins so we do not have time for an elaborate handmade card or a funny themed letter. The twins are a perfect blend of my craftiness and Noah’s comedy.
  • We have 5 month old twins so people are happiest when they have a photo of the twins; Shutterfly has great holiday photo cards with a huge selection.
  • We have 5 month old twins so we need to practice thrift; Shutterfly cards are a good price.
  • We have 5 month old twins so everybody knows about our year’s adventures already.

Our local twin club is holding a breakfast with Santa tomorrow. We are crossing our fingers we’ll get a good photo of the boys with the big guy then. Of course the chances of both boys smiling and looking at the camera are pretty slim, but we’ll see. Once we have those photos, we’re going to let Shutterfly do the rest.
Depending on whether or not we decide to pay the extra postage for square cards, here are a few of my favorite designs:

Holiday cards are just the latest in our Shutterfly purchases. Over the years, we’ve made numerous photo books—usually one each year, but we’ve also done them of the twins for the grandparents. I’m currently spending this year adding to a photo book which will become a baby book.

After our wedding we spread the photo wealth with a calendar for ourselves and our parents. Of course we used Shutterfly for our wedding thank you notes.

And, we are thinking about getting their photo ornament as a baby’s first Christmas ornament.

Overall, we’ve found Shutterfly to be very useful as we preserve and share our latest adventures from our wedding to Semester at Sea to twins.
