Free Giveaway: Shutterfly Holiday Photo Cards

With the popularity of Facebook and e-Mail, it is so rare to get actual greeting cards in the mail. This is why it is so special to receive holiday greetings in the mailbox! We think it is one of the best parts of the holiday season! We enjoy picking out our annual Christmas cards. We are excited about the Merry Bright Zigzag holiday cards this year. We traveled a lot in 2011. It has been a very adventurous year. And we look forward to a BRIGHT and happy 2012. So I think the ZigZag card is a good fit for us. Many of the Shutterfly designs also have space for multiple photos…to showcase family vacations throughout the year, or maybe a portrait of each of your little ones. We are thrilled to offer three readers codes for 25 FREE cards this year from Shutterfly! For your chance to win, just send us an e-mail to alistbabyblog (at) yahoo (dot) com by Noon Central on October 26. Good luck! And remember, it is never to early to get started on your holiday cards!

The Best Advice….

The best advice my Dad ever gave me was: “It is nice to be smart, but it is smarter to be nice.” That advice has served me well. My career is 100 percent relationship-driven. I hope to pass that advice on to my children someday. I just spotted this notebook at Smythson. It says, “Work hard and be nice to people.”

Welcome Baby: Emily Press Labels

Moms love personalized items for their new babies, and we adore the Emily Press Welcome Baby label sets! We received the tailored set for a baby boy. These are perfect labels for baby bottles, sippy cups and the little toys you have to label for the gym or the church daycare! The pink ones are cute, too!

*Guest Post: Blue Sky Designs*

When a new baby is born, a mother’s excitement is contagious. Mailed baby announcements are still the most traditional and elegant way to share your news with the world! Today, our guest blogger, April from Blue Sky Designs Blog, shares some of her favorite selections of baby stationary and announcements!

Announce your newborn in style.
Luxury defined: The look and feel of a letterpress announcement on a soft cotton
paper. Letterpress is one of the oldest styles of printing and features crisp lines and
gorgeous patterns and graphics. While the cost of the announcements may be a little
hard to swallow, the first impression of a letterpress baby announcement gives is
(almost) as irreplaceable as your newborn.

Announce your newborn “greenly”.
Give your little bundle of joy an eco friendly start to life. These announcements are
better for the environment and easier on your wallet too. All components of the
card, exterior cards, interior cards, and envelopes are made with the 100% recycled
fibers and use no trees throughout the manufacturing process.
