Since having Annmarie, I’ve made several photo books. They usually run great promotions throughout the year. I bought a book when they were having a buy one get TWO free promotion – and that ended up being my mother’s day gifts to my mom and MIL (filled with the pro family pics we had taken by the fabulously talented Maria). Can I tell you that my mom looks at that damn photo book EVERY DAY. And she lets me know this too. Parents eat this stuff up!
I just made another photo book with a coupon we scored buying a new point and shoot camera. I don’t think I can sing the praises of their photo books any more. I hate having loose photos sitting around and photo books are such a nice, clean way to present your favorite pictures.
But their site is really easy to use, the products are always good quality and their prices are really competitive.
I think someone might be getting an Annmarie calendar for 2012… not saying who but let’s say that he had a hand in creating Annmarie (but let’s be honest – his role was quite minimal compared to mine. Just sayin…).
And I know I’ll be using Shutterfly when it comes time to send out invites for Annmarie’s first birthday. (And holy hell – I got a little choked up typing that out…)
Since I have mentioned previously (and most folks probably have already figured this out) – I’m terrible at keeping in touch. Holiday cards are really the best way for me to communicate out to old friends and family the adorableness and awesomeness of Annmarie. This is actually more for my family that doesn’t e-mail or check my Flickr or Facebook account (that’s my lazy way of sharing pictures of Annmarie with people).
Are you noticing a theme yet? Basically I want a holiday card that allows for multiple pictures because I can never decide on just ONE picture (as evidenced the the 1000+ pics of Annmarie in her Flickr album. Clearly I have a hard time deleting pictures).
So if you made it this far in my Shutterfly promotion post – congrats! I’ll tell you about the fantastic offer Shutterfly is offering my readers. I have 3 Shutterfly codes for 25 free cards to share.
Since I don’t really have many readers… if more than 3 of you actually leave a comment, I’ll do some random number generator thingy. So – leave a comment, tell me you want the card code & how adorable Annmarie is… by Sunday, November 6th. I’ll announce the winners on Monday, November 7th.
(Btw – I should probably note that I’m a bit of an a-hole. I thought the deadline for posting this was October 31st but I just reread the e-mail from Shutterfly and I was supposed to post it by YESTERDAY. Let’s see if they give me a free pass so please know that those promo codes may not be valid! I’ll let you know!)
