Pillsbury Crescents "Holiday Entertaining" Party

 A few weeks ago, I had the chance to host a party for Pillsbury.

They sent me a box off card to buy ingredients, coupons for free crescent rolls, a baking pan, a serving spatula, and a cute oven mitt! All they wanted me to do was have a party! So I invited all of the gals in my Sunday school class and had a great time...I made baked brie, piggies in a blanket, layer bars, and bacon cheddar pinwheels. I used jalapeno cheddar mini dogs for the piggies in a blanket instead of the "normal" mini dogs, and they were amazing! The bacon cheddar pinwheels were SO simple and great, too. I gave out recipe cards for the things I made, gave away the coupons for crescent rolls that Pillsbury sent, and some fun prizes. I'd love to do this again, it was great! Pillsbury has a "dough sheet" product now, instead of opening a can of rolls and have them break apart at the perforated edges, I got the dough sheet and just unrolled it in the pan for the bacon cheddar pinwheels and layer bars. SUPER easy. Simple idea but wow, this makes an easy recipe even better!



Shutterfly’s 50 free holiday card promotion

I have yet to order Christmas cards from Shutterfly. I have ordered prints, photo coasters (which were really cute) and even two notebooks with pictures of Abbie on them. I made one for me and one for Jonathan. But I’ve never done Christmas cards. I have looked at the holiday ones I received in the mail in the past from friends, & thought “Wow, these are really cute”! 

But this year, Shutterfly is offering 50 free holiday cards to bloggers who post about their products! So here I go….

Probably my favorite thing is the Christmas PHOTO cards. There are so many designs to pick from, and they are all great-Click here for regular Christmas cards to find a design that you love. I love photo cards because we live far away from out family & so they don’t get to see us on a regular basis. It’s a great way to let them see how big Abbie is getting! They start out at .32, and have hundreds of designs to pick from! The hardest part is going to be picking out a design. I’ve already seen tons I love. 

Of course, if a family picture is not something that you want to bother with, you can pick a regular Christmas card, with no attempting to get a picture with everyone looking in the right direction. Click here to see photo Christmas cards.
Of course, Shutterfly doesn’t just do cards. They have Calendars   (Click here to see calendars) & canvas wall art and ALL sorts of other gifts, from photo jewelry to mugs to magnets to stickers.
