Holiday Traditions

Can you believe it's less than two weeks until Thanksgiving? The older I get the quicker the fly by. I think it's payback for all those years of wishing the years would go faster when I was younger.

It seems with today's fast paced, electronic world the tradition of sending cards or writing letters is starting to fade. Do you remember writing letters as a kid? Did you have a pen pal? I loved to write letters and had a pen pal in Japan. Do you still send cards? Or do you send e-cards? I love to send cards and when I receive one, it always brings a smile to my face!

Do you send holiday cards? I love to search for the perfect holiday card. One with just the right picture and message. When Tim and I got married, we started sending photo holiday cards. It's so fun to search for the perfect card.

Shutterfly has so many choices for holiday cards. Once you choose your photos and the card design, putting it all together is quick and easy!!

You can send traditional style photo cards like this fun snowflake design.

Or this cute Christmas tree photo card.

Of if you're having a holiday cocktail party, this would be a great invitation!

Shutterfly is offering bloggers 50 free cards in exchange for writing a post about holiday cards. Interested? You can find the information here!

Disclosure: In exchange for writing this post, I will receive a promotional code for a package of 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly. Opinions about Shutterfly are my own.


  1. I send fewer and fewer cards each year. My bad! Thanks for letting us know about the offer. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. That's a great offer, Julie! Since we are playing,"follow the leader," here, I'm heading over to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up and I hope this earns you 50 cards, friend!

  3. Thanks for the heads up on Shutterfly! and I feel exactly like you do, time was definitely much slower back when I was younger!

  4. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I'm now your newest follower! I love shutterfly! I need to participate in their 50 card giveaway! Thanks for your kind comments. So happy to have met you.

  5. I just signed up! Thanks for sharing this Julie!

  6. I remember having pen pals as a kid! Yes, times have changed. I send out holiday cards every year. It is a "must" for me. I enjoy the process as much as I enjoy getting cards from others, it's the one time of the year that the mail is actually kind of exciting!

  7. I have to agree with you; I don't know what is happening but time just flies. I don't send any cards anymore; times have changed so much.
