Shutterfly's 50 free holiday card promo

Christmas is finally HeRe!!
Christmas is by far our most favorite holiday! We just finished trimming the tree and decorating the mantle. Now we just need to settle on which christmas photo card we will use.
Since the holidays are insane around the holidays I love that shutterfly has awesome designs already made for me. I personally LoVe their photo cards - check them out here.
So, a few days ago I heard about how Shutterfly is giving bloggers 50 free cards!
You can find out more about it here.
And since I love free, I thought I would share a few of my favorites!
They are these:
Shutterfly ALWAYS has a ton of super cute cards to choose from!
These were just 5 of the hundreds they offer.
I can't decide! They are all super fun. I think it will definitely be between the first one and the last one though. I plan on using a black and white picture of the boys for the card; So either of those will work out nicely.
I also LoVe one stop shopping
so I WILL be picking up a few other things from shutterfly as well.
Such as our annual calendar and possibly a photo canvas of the boys for grandma as well.
In all of my experiences with shutterfly I have NEVER been disappointed. They always have a speedy delivery and the product has always been quality as well. I would recommend them a hundred times over.
So what are you waiting for??
Stop by shutterfly to pick out the perfect card for you!

Mod Podge'd Picture Frames

What are you supposed to do with all of those Ultrasound photos??
With both of my boys I ended up with tons of those black and white photos and nowhere to put them.
I made these!
Boy #1
Boy #2
1 5X7 black frame 1 4X6 black frame
2 ultra sound photos (or any photo's you want)
1 sheet of rub on stickers from Hobby Lobby
black ribbon to hang with
Hot Glue Gun + Sticks
Mod Podge!
Step 1: Take the backs off of the frames. Discard. Step 2: Determine the placement of photo and of Rub-on decal. Step 3: Mod Podge photo to the Glass part of the frame. Step 4: Rub on the decal. Step 5: determine length of ribbon for desired position on wall. Step 6: Hot Glue ribbon and Hang on wall :)

*As a Bonus*

I wrote on the back with a Sharpie
the week of the ultra sound and the name of the child

Candle Holders

*I love Mod Podge*
~For these candle holders I Mod Podged the Vellum Paper to the vase and candle.
~Then I applied the Rub-On decals with the rhinestones.
~After that I just added some yarn to finish it off!

They look fun on my bed side tables :)

Coming Soon!

I hope to have this up and running within the next few weeks!
Stay Tuned...

Monogram Wreath

Here is the wreath that I made.
I originally thought to use it as a chistmas wreath but of course it wasn't made in time :)
The inspiration was from Linda over on Craftaholics Anonymous.
She made hers with strips of burlap, but I didn't have any.
I made mine with the extra length of fabric cut from the boys curtains!

What a good model ;P

This is the 20 inch frame I used for the wreath.

The strips of fabric I cut into 1X6 inch lengths and then just tied them around the frame.

Total cost of project: $4.30!!

*Frame - $3 from Michaels *Letter M - $1 from Hobby Lobby *Paper - 30 cents from Hobby Lobby *Ribbon - free (on hand) *Fabric - free (on hand)
