Holiday Cards from Shutterfly and a Giveaway!

I love sending and receiving mail!!!
It’s another of those traits my sweet Granny instilled in me…
Sending and receiving holiday cards especially is at the top of my snail mail list!

You might be thinking it’s a little early to be talking holiday cards, but if you’re going to take a family photo, order and have them printed, stuff, address, and mail them… Now is the time to get started!!!

I think Photo Christmas Cards are definitely my favorite. I love to choose my favorite photos from the last year and send them along with a holiday message to our nearest and dearest! Last year it was wedding photos… the year before, engagement photos… this year might be tougher to choose because we’ve done so many fun things!

Every year I order our holiday cards through Shutterfly! I love the fun themes they have that can easily be customized with your own photos.

A few of my favorites for this year are…


Surrounded with Love


Sparkling Snowflakes


Bright Merry Wishes

Hey Truly Lovely ladies!  My name is Bethani and I reside over at Cheers, Bethani – a blog about life, love, food and adventure!  Kassi and I have been blog friends for quite sometime and its been a pleasure getting to know both her and her sister Kayli.

Recently, the idea of Snail Mail Social was born.  If anyone is like me, I love getting snail mail. Seeing items in my mailbox with my name on them, besides bills, makes me especially giddy inside.  I had participated in a few package swaps in the past, but I wanted to elaborate on the item.  Why not get something EVERY month??

guidelines are simple:

-each person is given the name and address of their receiver.

-once signed up, you are committed for that month to ensure your receiver gets something and isnt left hanging.

-each “package” would a be letter/card and a small trinket or two for your receiver to enjoy.

-no exuberant money to be spent. five to ten dollars for the package. a little goes a long way.

-no commitment required. you do not have to participant each month. you can quit at any time

-each month you receive the name and address of someone new to keep things fun and fair. if you get the same person twice & would like someone new, let me know asap so we can try to switch you with someone else.

-you must have your package out by the 15th of every month to ensure the receiver gets their package before months end.

i will then do a link up party, featuring the posts of what everyone received.

the first swap would begin for the month of june. if you would like to participate, please send me your name, address & blog address – cheersbethani {at} live {dot} com
participation is open to all readers, domestically and internationally. you also dont need a blog to participate – just be sure to follow via GFC so you get futher blog post updates regarding the social.

Important Dates: deadline to participate for june is wednesday may 23.

your receivers information will be sent to you on may 31.

deadline to send package will be june 15.

link up party featuring what everyone received for june will be july 2.

then july will begin. and so forth.

Hope you’ll join with Bethani as we spread some love via snail mail!!!
Have a lovely rest of your weekend sweet friends!
