Vistaprint: 40 Holiday Cards for $25 Shipped (through 12/13 only!)

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

If you still haven’t found the perfect holiday cards this season, Vistaprint is now offering holiday card deals in a variety of sizes and quantities!  Through tomorrow, December 13, you can get 40 5×7 folded cards for $25, 50 5×7 flat cards for $25, 75 4×8 flat cards for $25, and more!

Whether you took a lot of family photos this season or you’re looking for holiday cards with simple messages and designs, Vistaprint has a variety of templates in order to make your cards stand out amongst the rest. Some of the 150+ new designs include a “Year in Review” template where you can share all of your big 2013 moments with friends and family.

From my experience with Vistaprint, their quality is great but they often bombard you with emails after you order.  I’d suggest simply unsubscribing from their emails once you receive your order to avoid this annoyance- unless of course you enjoy getting their emails!

It’s #ParentsGifts Week- get gift ideas!

Monday, December 9th, 2013

I’m so excited to be participating in Parents Gifts Week!  This week, December 9 to December 13, I’ll be joining Amanda Kingloff of Everyday Fun and Melanie Blodgett from You Are My Fave to bring you a bunch of great ideas for stocking stuffers, kids’ presents, homemade gifts and more.  We’ll be pinning our favorite crafty and unique (and for my part, inexpensive) gift ideas to the Parents pinterest board.   Get in on the conversation and share your ideas (or borrow someone else’s) using #ParentsGifts on Twitter and Pinterest.

And while you’re over at Pinterest, feel free to check out my Pinterest boards too!
