Special Birthday Month Giveaway - May 12, 2016 - FavePix Book from Shutterfly!

Over the years, this grandma has become a big fan of Shutterfly! I LOVE ordering items with photos of my family . . . my three sweet rascal grandsons do show up on many, many items! Along with having photos, mugs, magnets, notebooks, pillows and more with photos of my family on them, I love the quality. Very few of the items I've ordered from Shutterfly have arrived leaving me disappointed. The couple times a photo was scratched or too dark, an email to Shutterfly had them sending me a new item immediately. Their customer service is second to none and their quality of products is excellent.

Yes, I'm a definite fan of Shutterfly! So, when I was invited yesterday to try a new service/product they have for free in exchange for my review - and found out I could give one away as well, I happily said, "Yes!"

What is this new service/product? It is called, "FavePix" and is described as; "Turn your Instagram posts into a photo album as unique as your feed in five minutes or less." Sounds pretty great to me!

Shutterfly goes on to explain how this works; "You choose the best way to tell your story. Pick your favorites, gather by hashtag or let us pull your best.  We'll put your photos in order. You tweak. Select your book color, cover layout and if you want your original captions to be printed. For $19.99 and free shipping, you get a sweet 6x6 hard cover book filled with up to 50 photos and a bamboo stand." This app is for iphones. (I hope they will add an app for android phones soon!)

I'm going to try putting a book together this evening - when it arrives I'll post again to let you know how it all goes . . . I'm pretty non-tech, so if I can do it, anyone can!

If this sounds like great fun to you - and why wouldn't it??? - and a wonderful way to gather treasured photos - and it does, doesn't it???!!!!, and you don't want to wait for the drawing to get started . . . because after all, don't we all take lots of photos of our sweet grandchildren/family???!!! Winning a free book, just means being able to have an additional book!

So, if you want to get started, use this link to download the app to your iphone and this link to learn more about it all - please post a photo of your completed FavePic when you receive it at #MyFavePix

Shutterfly says; "Don't let your photos get lost in the crowd. Use FavePix to bring them to life in a sweet book to give or keep. Or make a bunch of copies and do both!

The drawing for one free FavePix book will be on May 12, 2016 (USA only). So, If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA, and would like to be in the drawing for one FavePix book and stand, please comment below to tell me about a favorite photo you would include in your book - I have a photo of all three of my grandson in/on my little blue pedal car - my parents gave it to me when I was little and now my grandsons have all enjoyed playing with it!

In addition, if you have followed in Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG, or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email, you will receive one entry for each of these which you have done. Plus, if you "share" this post, you'll receive another entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win one FavePix book and stand and it gives you several ways to enter the giveaway! Please keep in mind, you will receive just one entry for each way you enter for each post - this means, for example, if you tweet each day about a particular giveaway, while I appreciate it, you will only receive one entry for the first tweet. Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
