Have You Started Thinking Christmas Cards?

I have started thinking about Christmas Cards recently. We always go to Portrait Innovations for our Christmas pictures and since we own the copyright we then order Christmas Cards. Last year I bought a few early (so I had my mother in law take a few pictures for us)  from Shutterfly to check out the quality and I was so surprised! I wanted to show you the card I ordered last year.

Here was the front of the card!

Here was the inside of the card with the photos on the top of the card!

The quality was much better then I had ever given out before. Shutterfly's Christmas Card selection is so vast with over 700 cards to choose form they have something for everyone. They have a selection of religious Christmas Cards to fit you as well. I love this one!

This particular card is one of their photo card and the price right now is an astonishing .30! You can not beat that!! Shutterfly is also offering up a great sale until November 3rd where you can save 25% on any orders over 50 cards. So for 50 photo cards you would only pay $11.25 plus shipping, yes and you get them shipped to your door! I have to say that is a great savings!!

I have to show you one more card I think is as cute as can be! 
How cute is this? I would love to have you share with me your favorite card design. Just post a comment telling me what you will/would choose.

I will be receiving 50 cards for this post. All thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone.

Great Christmas gift ideas for kids and elderly. 


Tis my favorite time of the year (a little early)!

So Black Friday has become my favorite time of the year. Well, that and the great Amazon lightening deals that hit early December. Last year between these two things I stocked our Christmas tree as well as we sponsored three families for Christmas. Much to my amazement I received this in my email today and it was like an early Christmas gift.

The pre-Black Friday sales are in full swing and major retailers are offering great deals before the official shopping holiday. Each Friday, starting today and lasting right up until November 26th, will be running early Black Friday sales by theme (connect, play, listen, watch) in the gold box section of their website. Not only do they have their gold box sale today, but they are also running a buy 2, get 1 free video game sale that is worth checking out.

To view the early Black Friday deals, go to:

To view the buy 2, get 1 free video game sale, go to:

We have also received information about Target's plans during the week of Black Friday. Starting November 21st, they will be having a 4-day sale with deals on over 170 products including toys, electronics, movies and more. They will also offer coupons in their weekly ad for additional savings on top of their deals, plus card members will receive another 5% off on all purchases. Then, on Thanksgiving day, will be having an exclusive one day sale with deals you can't find in stores. Their normal Black Friday sale will then be available to purchase online on Black Friday morning, with free shipping on any order over $50.

To view more details about Target's Black Friday sale, go to:

So who else is ready for all the sales to start? I will do my best to bring them to you as I come across the *HOT* ones. Please drop me a line if you hear of a great deal I have yet posted.
