I'm gonna be honest and throw myself under a blogger bus and say that I have not always loved celebrating the holidays. I always seem to get so wrapped up in buying stuff and worrying about travelling that I have a tendancy to foget the real reason and just take some time to enjoy my friends and family. But one thing I have always enjoyed doing is sending and recieving Christmas cards. My whole life we have always been forunate enough that we got a lot of Christmas cards and we would always hang them up around the house to add to the holiday decor. Last year was the first year Josh and I sent out holiday cards as a couple and we had a cute picture of us from an Ohio State game on it. Our family members loved them! We even sent some cards to his aunt and uncle who I had never met as of last year and when I met them this past summer his aunt said "She's the cute one from the Christmas card" I just giggled but was secretly excited she rememebered the card cause I had worked really hard on it.
This year we are going to be using Shutterfly for several of our Christmas projects.
They have great card options that will be sooo hard to choose from http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery
I have been really wanting to make a photo calendar for Josh's mom for a gift for a long time that includes all the trips we have all been on the past few years, and yay Shutterfly has those too http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars/wall-calendars
And I have seen Shutterfly's awesome photo canvases and think I am going to get one made for one of my sorority sister's wedding gifts this summer http://www.shutterfly.com/home-decor/canvas-wall-art
