My Shutterfly Experience and Giveaway!

I have had a lot of jobs in my life. I’ve been an administrative assistant, a cashier, a drama teacher, a birthday party coordinator, and the list goes on and on. I’ve never had a job with duties as diverse as being a Mom, though! I’m all of those things and more! One of the best parts of my job of being Ayva’s Mom, is being her official archivist! As her Archivist, I am responsible for documenting every single moment of her life. All of them. Every minute. I recognize I might go a little overboard, but, whattayagonnado? She’s my Princess!Since being an Archivist is just one of the things that I have to do, I partner up with Shutterfly to help make my job a little easier! Shutterfly has been my go-to for everything Ayva memory keeping since she has been born! I have to have ordered over 500 prints from Shutterfly since Ayva was born almost 16 months ago! I love the prints because they are so inexpensive. You can order prints for as low as 9 cents apiece with a prepaid print plan. If you know that you are going to order a lot of prints, the prepaid plan can help you to save some money!

For Ayva’s 1st birthday, I ordered a ton of stuff from Shutterfly! I designed her 1st birthday party invitation, as well as the matching thank you cards that came with it! I also made her a beautiful photo book of haikus with 20 pages and a hard cover. When the book arrived at my job where I had it shipped, I cried as I looked at the beautiful, clear pictures of my little baby girl! The quality of printing for the price is truly unbeatable!

I have passed the Shutterfly bug to friends and family as well. When my Great-Grandmother had her 87th birthday, 150 of her closest friends and relatives received gorgeous invitations with her picture on it. The thick cardstock makes the invitations feel really rich, even when you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for it!

Oh, and I have to tell you about the Shutterfly Share Site! It is a free website for you to use to share pictures, updates…whatever you want! I have one that documents Ayva’s life for my family that is away. You can upload pictures and video to the site, and it is super easy to order prints from Shutterfly when you upload pictures to the site.
