Don’t shoo Shutterfly away!

I am an unabashed fan of Shutterfly, the photo printing website where you can create everything from beautiful photo books, to mugs, to jewelry…I could go on and on, but you may as well just check out the website.  I have made many beautiful albums, and have now branched out into their greeting cards which are my new favorite thing.  The other great thing about Shutterfly is that they constantly send out deals and codes to folks on their mailing list.  50% off photo books, free shipping, and the best one yet, a free and clear $20 credit!  I redeemed that today (for some of the aforementioned cards) and thought I’d share them with you.  How cute are these?  They are now winging their way to my house.  And the husband and I will be able to keep up our manners and write timely thank-you notes.  What could be better?  I highly recommend checking out their deals and offers – completely worth getting the emails.

Be well, love well and shop well!

Could it Really be that simple? ‘Tis a gift!

An Issue of Real Simple

OK, so that’s a bad hymn joke.  But seriously – we love Simple Gifts – and the hymn too. (looking for something for the congregation to sing at your wedding that’s spiritual without having the Lord directly involved? Simple Gifts.  Perfect).

We also love Real Simple magazine and they make life so – well- simple with their gift guides.  We look for wedding gifts, but also handy for “dads & grads.”  Good to help avoid ties and the fly-attracting fruit centerpieces that shall go nameless.  Avoid those at your spring celebrations – for the love of honeydew! Let the fruit keep some dignity.

Shop nice everybody – lots of sales for the holiday start early!  Get a move on!
