Friday's pick of the week

I have spoken about the ease of photo books by places like Shutterfly, Snapfish, Zazzle, and Disney Photo Pass before, but this is the first year that I have decided to use Shutterfly instead of Costco. I was a little worried that the cost would not be even close, but I must was about the same. I just finished designing and ordering my Christmas Card and for 200 cards the cost was $78.00. There was no cost for shipping and the tax was only $6.05, making the total $84.05. I don't want to spoil the surprise here, but will post the card after I mail them out!

Gene and Kelly ordered their cards from Shutterfly and I was very pleased with how they turned out, so I have no concern about how ours will look. I am jazzed about not going to Costco 2 times! We live 40 miles from the nearest Costco and would have to drive there twice, once to drop off the image and another to pick it up. You would never want to stay there, especially this time of year, because the crowds are crazy, rude and huge!

Another tip.....I decided to make a photo book for Gene's parents. They are near 90 and it is so hard to figure out what to get them each year. I decided to take Mary's lead and make a photo book each year. Next year I will build the book all year and save it on their site so it doesn't take as much work. But I just received the book and it is really nice. I think they will appreciate it!

I plan on trying this wreath this coming year!
