Every year when holiday card time rolls around I click right over to Shutterfly.com, I even talked about it on the blog here last year… BUT it’s also a great place to purchase your personalized holiday gifts!

shutterfly-logoOne of my favorite Shutterfly products and one I always receive compliments on is my personalized photo iPhone case. They have different sizes and styles you can choose from. You can do just photos, or choose varied backgrounds and then personalize with your name, initials, favorite quote, etc. I get asked all the time where I got mine. And the answer is Shutterfly!


I also LOVE my personalized reusable shopping bag! There are again, several styles to choose from, mine is the Classic Mosaic style, and you can add photos and text to personalize them. This is a shopping bag nobody will mistake for theirs with your name and photo on the side!



This year there are several new products on Shutterfly’s website that I can’t wait to get… This is my son’s first Christmas and a pretty Baby’s First Christmas glass ornament is at the top of my list. Or a family photo in a rustic weathered wood framed ornament would be fun! Speaking of frames, how about a personalized wooden frame with your favorite photo as a holiday gift?! I also love these mason jar glasses that you can personalize! TONS of gifting and holiday decorating options!

shutterfly-holiday-giftsI love getting personalized gifts because it shows the giver took the time to really think about me… And in giving personalized gifts I hope my recipients know that I thought about them.

Do you like getting personalized gifts?

It’s here… time to get those holiday cards on order so they’ll be ready to send out this holiday season!!! I already have mine. Don’t be jealous of my crazy preparation skills… Christmas cards are literally the ONLY holiday thing I’ve taken care of yet this year. No gifts, no new decor, just the cards. But it’s a biggie! And really, an easy one for me. I just use my go to holiday card website, problem solved. For real, this is maybe the fifth year in a row I think that I’ve order our holiday cards from Shutterfly. Favorite hands down!

Because I don’t want to ruin the surprise for those receiving our holiday cards this year, here’s last year’s Shutterfly Christmas Card instead… ;)


Then, here’s a few of my favorite designs for this year!! First, I am loving the pretty foil stamped designs and this year there’s even more colors to choose from to customize your cards!

Foil StampedOR instead of sending your loved ones an ordinary holiday card, you can now send them an ornament for their Christmas tree!!!! There’s a whole selection of fun ornament cards to choose from as well!

I love that you can also purchase matching address labels and gift stickers to go with your holiday cards. Really complete the ensemble!

Gift Stickers from Shutterfly While you’re on the Shutterfly site choosing your holiday stationary, you might as well get some holiday gift shopping done! I personally LOVE their Personalized iPhone Photo Cases. SO much so I got one for myself with my favorite photo of my daughter holding a sonogram of our little man on the way!

Other fun photo gifts include Christmas stockings, candles, gift wrap, and so much more! They also have fun home decor items you can personalize with your own photos!

To wrap it up holiday style, Shutterfly is my favorite site for my Christmas stationary, personalized gifts and cute home decor items. Nothing beats a thoughtful personalized present with a family photo!

Your turn: Do you send holiday cards every year? Why or why not?

Hello there lovelies!!! It’s been awhile. This renovation stuff, painting at the new house and then just life on top of that has kept me away from the blog. But I have a cute little Baby Girl Bow Holder to share with you today that I made for my new little niece on the way!

Materials needed:

*Burlap frame from Wal-Mart’s craft section (I originally had planned to make some exactly like the ones I made for Klara but then I found that cute frame and thought it was too cute to pass up!)
*Glue gun and glue sticks
*Craft Paint
*Paint Brush
*Cardboard Letter from Wal-Mart’s craft section

Step 1: Paint the board letter in your choice of color. Pink for a baby girl. ;)

Step 2: Hot glue the letter to the frame. If you don’t go the burlap frame route like I did, you could still do a cute little frame and put fabric as the background.

Step 3: Cut your ribbon in the lengths desired to hang from the frame and hot glue those to the back of the frame. I used thumbtacks to reinforce the hot glue.

Step 4: Clip on your cute little bows to the ribbon and hang on the wall! Or in my case wrap and give as a baby shower gift! ;)

Mother’s Day is just over a month away and if your husband is like mine, he needs a little push in the right direction from time to time. OK, I’ll be honest, I usually just tell him exactly what I want and it makes life easier for both of us. So here’s my Mother’s Day wish list, with the hope that it will help you to compile your own list or point you in the direction of a fun gift for a mother in your life this year!

A Cosmetic Train Case Set. I have had a set for several years and it’s my favorite way of carrying my cosmetics and toiletries when I travel. It’s definitely time for a new one and I LOVE this Black and White Paisley set! They come in several different styles though, so take your pick!

iRobot Floor Mopping Robot. I HATE mopping. That and sweeping are two of my least favorite household chores!

Kitchen Accessories. I would literally redecorate my kitchen if I had this cute Mason Jar Kitchen Set!

Coffee. Need I say more!?

A Fun New Coffee Mug. Since we’re on the subject of coffee…. I don’t know a single mom that wouldn’t love to have their morning coffee or tea in a fun mug! For those photographers like myself, this Canon Lens Mug is so fun!!!

What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list??
