Flowers of Spring & Shutterfly Home Decor

Here in Texas the flowers are already starting to bless us with their bright and beautiful colors–so I thought I’d share for those of you who are still staring at the snow right now! Whether you’re looking at snow or flowers these are a reminder that Spring is just around the corner, and if you’re like me that means you’ll get the itch to organize, spring clean, and finish projects!

If you’ve been a reader for awhile you might remember how I love to use personal photos to decorate my house! It’s still my favorite way to bring beauty, personality, and uniqueness to our home! Photos don’t have to just be of your family, however, I love to get landscape and flower pictures (like the ones in this post!) printed out to decorate our home! {be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom–there’s a giveaway!}

Of course you also know that Shutterfly is one of my all time favorite photo sites (Don’t forget about the 8×8 Photo Book Giveaway of theirs I have going on right now that ends tomorrow as well!) In addition to their great typical photo products they also have 16 Photo home décor products including two brand new ones: New Canvas Print Designs & New Decorative Wall Decals!

One lucky reader will win a 5×5 Photo Gallery Acrylic Block plus shipping!

5 Years Old Photos

{I’m still having a hard time believing my “baby” is five–that means that before I blink we’ll be needing to order Shutterfly Yearbooks instead of just doing a yearly photo shoot! This year for her pictures we went to the Rose Gardens–I LOVE how they turned out! If you scroll  to the bottom you’ll find a giveaway for a 8×8 Shutterfly Photo Book!}

Back to Memories

All across the US school is back in session and Fall is creeping upon us! While summer’s vacations and playdates are over the new school year brings plenty of great times and special memories of it’s own.

I love to digitally scrapbook our lives to help keep these memories for my kids! This year our back to school is a little different as we’re in the middle of a huge change in our lives–Bob is getting out of the military and we’re moving to Texas! This means Amber’s back to school is getting bumped a wee bit back. I’m so grateful that she’s just 4 and in preschool, and also that we’re homeschooling, as this is giving me a lot less stress and a lot more flexibility in our schedule right now and I can just focus in on the move and less on preschool for her!

I print out all my pages and make photo books through Shutterfly–they even have the option to make affordable yearbooksthrough their super user friendly software–I have about 10 photo books now and I can highly recommend them (and I do all the time!)
So whether you’re apple picking, celebrating a first back to school season, or moving across the country be sure you’re taking lots of pictures along the way to document this season in your life!

Keep in touch with Shutterfly through all their social media channels to keep up to date on all the latest deals and specials–I recently got 101 pictures for free just because I was paying attention to their Facebook Page! You can also find them here: Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram: Shutterfly, Google +, and their Blog. This post is brought to you by them-but all gushing and love of them is my own-I really do use them all the time!
