Christmas Cards, and My First Giveaway!

Last year's Christmas Card

It’s that time of year again! Time for our annual Christmas photo card, which I love to send with a letter updating our dearest relatives and friends on what the last year brought for the Duryee family. 2011 is obviously a big year for us, as our Christmas card will now feature not 2, but 3 members of the family: mama, daddy, and little miss Susanna Jane.

Typically, I tend to take advantage of the best deals and coupon codes for prints. But Shutterfly is my go-to shop for photo gifts and Christmas cards. They even have a collection of greeting cards if you’re not interested in including your pretty mug! The 2011 collection features 4×8, 8×4, 5×7 and 5×5 flat cards (my favorite style). Many of the cards, like the one pictured here, make the photo the focal point with only a tiny bit of text on the front.

This year, busy as it is with the new baby and prefield ministry, I am most excited to utilize the new feature on photo cards: an extra photo and large portion of text on the back! I am planning to write our Christmas letter right on the back of our card, saving time and money on the extra letter.

I am also excited to announce Seasoned With Salt’s very first giveaway! Shutterfly has offered me 25 free photo cards to give to three of my readers.

Shutterfly gave me a free pack of cards for my review, but I authentically love their cards and use them all the time. Shutterfly has the (totally meaningless) Seasoned With Salt stamp of approval!
