Magnet Street Baby Reivew and Giveaway

So, it was December 15th and I realized Christmas was only 10 days away and I still didn't have Christmas cards. I hadn't even taken my kids photo yet. I never wait this long! I start thinking about my Christmas cards in September. I'd like to do something fun, but at this point I was running out of time. What was I gonna do? Then I found something great ~ MagnetStreetBaby. But first I needed a photo.

So I showered all the kids, got them dressed and told the hubby what our evening plans were; 3 words that send terror into my hubby's soul "Christmas Photo Shoot." I still didn't have my tree up (long story for another day) so a photo at home was out of the question, so we headed to the local mall to see what we could do. Do you know how hard it is to take a photo at the mall 10 days before Christmas and not get other people in your photo? Pretty hard. Here are some of the photos that didn't make the cut.

Not bad, but I'm not crazy about the shoe store in the background!

Everyone is getting a little crazy!

Check out those evil eyes! Where did the baby go?

A photo with Santa was out of the question, 3 year old is terrified of him. So we settle for a bench we found near the big tree by the train and we were able to get a decent photo with a not so bad background.

I think we have a winner!

So now I have my photo, we all go for ice cream, I get the kids to bed and I head to MagnetStreetBaby.

MagnetStreetBaby specializes in birth announcements but they also offer shower invitations, address labels and seals, and holiday cards. Many of their designs are available as 3.5" x 4" magnets. How cool is that? I was looking for something fun and here it was! Just think, my kids would be smiling from everyone's fridge instead of being stuffed into a drawer with all the other Christmas cards.

The cool thing about MagnetStreetBaby is once you have chosen one of their many designs available, you can customize the colors and fonts on the card. In the past when I would order cards I always had a hard time with this because I would like the card, but the colors didn't match the outfits or the background of the photo. With MagnetStreetBaby colors are no longer a problem! You can choose from a menu of colors or go even further into the color tool and choose any color on the spectrum! They also have close to 200 different fonts to choose from to make your card uniquely yours. With each change you make the preview reflects the change so you can see exactly what your card will look like. I had a lot of fun playing around with the options for my card. The editor tool was so easy to use and my ordering experience with MagnetStreetBaby was fantastic! There are so many possibilities everyone can find something that suits their taste.

I was so happy with my cards, and just as I imagined, everyone I sent them too thought they were great!
