C'est la Vie: More Christmas Card Ideas

Keep reading for a free card offer!

There is always more than one way to do something. I got a wonderful comment from one of my readers sharing about a great online card service called Send Out Cards. I was sharing about your options for getting started with Christmas cards for this season and they told me about this great service.

Now if you're thinking this is just another e-card program let me stop you right there. I've used Send Out Cards before and you are not going to believe what it can do! You can choose one of hundreds of thousands of cards, or upload your own photo. Then, write your very own message or use one that is provided. Here's the amazing part - you can upload your own signature and they will even send the card for you! If you're not amazed yet, there's more... for an additional fee they can send a gift card or gift along with your card!! Seriously. Maybe a book, stuffed animal, candy or a Target gift card and you've covered gifts for everyone on your list!

Don't believe it until you see it? Use this contact link to try one for free! Just enter your name, email address, and "Mom In Progress" as your message to get a free card!

Seinfeld fan? Check out this fun Christmas card!


Want to go classic? Here's a beautiful Santa card:


Maybe modern and funky is more your style:

There are over 500 designs to choose from. What?!? Yes, over 500 designs. That doesn't include all of the options for individualizing your cards. And don't forget about the gifts! Starting from around $1.00, there are all kinds of great gifts for family, friends, or business associates. You can also use "points" (find more information on their website) to purchase items which you then get credit for.

You definitely want to check out Send Out Cards before you start your Christmas list. This may end up being your easiest Christmas yet!

Well, it's November 1st. Get ready for the holiday talk! Planning ahead seems to be the theme for the year here at Mom In Progress, so I'm going to start hunting down some great ideas for Thanksgiving and beyond.

Happy Monday! And thanks for reading.

  1. Great find, Jenna! I've been undecided re: whether or not to send them this year but things like this make it EASY.

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…
