Slow cooker favorite

On busy days, I like to throw something in the crock pot all day. Yum...
Disclaimer:  I do not cook my children, nor would I encourage it.  He likes to climb into small spaces and hang out there- I did not put him there. Yes I did make sure no one plugged it in.

What does it say about me...

Is it bad that I put my Christmas wreath inside my door, instead of facing outside?  I just love my wreath, and my front door is not very attractive with that metal security screen door thing, it just wouldn't look nice out there, and who would see it anyways?  So it's inside this year, and I love it!
But I did start to feel a little sad for my bare unattractive front door so I gathered up some old big outdoor ornaments that I didn't quite know what to do with and hung them under a big bow (I'm not a bow maker)  but I think it turned out alright!  Better than nothing anyways, something festive to greet any visitors, and then they can come in and enjoy my wreath too. 
Today I'm spending a little time crafting!  Hopefully finished products will be worth sharing soon...

Time for Christmas Cards!

I LOVE getting and giving Christmas cards- it's really one of my favorite things about Christmas time.  Getting the mail is even more exciting than normal!  My favorite place for photo cards is Shutterfly.  Their selection gets bigger and better every year and I love the way their stationary cards feel compared to a basic photo.  Here are a few of my favorite designs this year:

I love that you can search for certain colors, or how many pictures you want to use, or by designer.  Plus if you like to do digital scrapbooking or design your own, you can upload and print your own creation on their cards HERE
Shutterfly has the best products and there's always sales if you get on their mailing list.  I've gotten cards, calendars, photo books (TONS of them!) mugs and of course prints from them and always been thrilled with them. I always make calendars for my parents Christmas gift with pictures of all of their grandkids and order them from Shutterfly- my mom requests it now.  I think I'm going to make Sam a desk calendar this year. Right now they have a promotion for bloggers to get 50 free cards and you can read about that HERE.  (thanks for letting me do this- I am hopefully getting free cards for it but I honestly LOVE Shutterfly products!) So have you ordered your cards yet??
