CHRISTMAS : Shutterfly Christmas Card GIVEAWAY! ($50 value)

This post is sponsored by Shutterfly’s Christmas Card Campaign.

It’s that time of year! Thanksgiving is just barely past (I’m still filling up on leftovers) but lots of us are already fully immersed in Christmas preparation. I just spent some time next to our pretty white tree choosing photos for our cards this year. It’s always so fun to look back on the year, don’t you think? These laughter-filled outtakes from our shoot with Deb Schwedhelm back in April didn’t make it onto our cards, but they are just too fun not to share.

Will you be sending out cards this Christmas? Each year it seems like fewer and fewer families are carrying on this tradition — which makes me sad. I like when my mailbox is filled with red and green and holly and glittery snowscapes!

To encourage you to mail some Christmas cheer this year, Shutterfly is generously offering one Oaxacaborn reader an extra $50 off a Shutterfly order of $50 or more! (Excluding tax and shipping, and cannot be combined with any other promos. Expires 12/14/2012 – no extensions.)

Such a fun giveaway!

To enter, just comment on this post telling me what you love most about Christmas cards. You have until December 3 at midnight to enter.
UPDATE: The winner, randomly selected using is JULIE! Congratulations!

WRITING & WORDS :: Issue 10 of Babiekins Magazine

Babiekins Magazine Issue 10

I haven’t actually blogged about this yet (although if we’re connected on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you’ve already seen this).

I had the honor of appearing in four separate spots in the latest digital issue of Babiekins Magazine

Aven Clothing: Designer Interview [pages 45-48]
Madeleine P’tite: Artist Interview [pages 49-52]
The Pie Pixie: A Childhood Memory of the Tooth Fairy [pages 57-58]
The Unbreakable Bond: What I Want my Daughter to Know [pages 247-248]

I’m incredibly grateful to my editor, Priscila who believes in me and has handed me this huge opportunity — and to my mom, who has always, always encouraged me to keep on writing.

Big thanks also goes to Mitch from Aven Clothing and Madeleine of La p’tite Madeleine for being such wonderful interview subjects, to the talented Maia Chavez Larkin for illustrating my Pie Pixie story, and to Deb Schwedhelm Photography for the photograph of Aveline and I that I’ll treasure forever.
