Well ho-ho-ho-hello there! Can you believe we’re in the “final countdown” to Christmas? Only 2 more weeks to Thanksgiving and then it’s right around the corner! We are officially embarking upon my absolute favorite time of year! Yes, the Brown household is already decorated. Last Sunday was extremely chilly out so hubby and I popped in Elf (favorite movie ever!) and brought the Christmas decorations down from storage. I figured I’d wait on the outside for this weekend so our neighbors didn’t think we were THAT weird for decorating the first weekend in November… ha!
Another thing that I’m absolutely looking forward to is CHRISTMAS CARDS! I get down right giddy about sending and receiving cards every year. I love to see peoples pictures and what they’ve come up with and how they have changed over the past year. Shutterfly is an amazing place to order your photo cards among MANY other things… I’ve used them for photo calendars, photo books, mouse pads, coffee mugs personalized with whatever photo you want. And they don’t disappoint… everything turns out first class!
How cute would these invitations be if you were hosting a cookie exchange. I’ve never done one but who doesn’t love cookies?
Or how about this invitation for a Christmas “dine-around”.
Me and some girlfriends hopped in a few cars last year and made our rounds from house to house and had appetizers at one house, dinner at one house, and dessert at the last. It was so much fun! And it’s such a great way to be “nosey” and see everyone’s Christmas decorations!
Now hubby, pup, and I need to start thinking about our Christmas card picture! I can’t wait to dive into Shutterfly and get our cards picked out and ready to go! Picking from their new enormous collection is going to be hard!
And ATTENTION ALL BLOGGERS: Shutterfly is giving away 50 free Christmas cards to YOU. Go here for details.
Thank you Shutterfly! I can’t wait to get my cards and spread the cheer to all of my friends & family 🙂
