Love these three projects from Shutterfly

2015 Holiday cards and 2016 Calendar

Yes, office assistant “Eve” even appears on my holiday cards.  (She is “Eve” because she was found abandoned in a cattle trailer Christmas Eve of 2006).

The second project is a very special calendar for a WWII veteran featuring photos from two trips to the memorial in Washington D.C. (2008 Reunion and 2014 Honor Flight).  I discovered last year (don’t know how long the feature has been available) that photos of family members can be dropped in on their birth dates with text!  @92 years young, it helps!  This 2016 calendar was a quick update of what I prepared for 2015 and saved as a project on the Shutterfly site.


"My Life as an Artist" by Mary Ann Boysen

“My Life as an Artist” by Mary Ann Boysen

My cousin Mary Ann Boysen’s career as an artist spans 40 years.  She prepared this book as a legacy for her grandsons.  She shared her book with me on Shutterfly.  Yes, I wanted to have my own copy to “tell the story” of my own 20+ collection of her watercolor originals (plus a few prints).  The book format is 11″X14″ and 93 pages is hardly enough to do justice to her life’s work.

Oh!  and Shutterfly included with the shipments 40% off discounts thru the end of the year.  There may be an update 🙂
