I love decorating our Christmas tree! We have lots of special ornaments collected over the years. Some of our favorite ones are Baby's 1st Christmas, Our First Christmas Together, and ornaments I received while I was teaching. Ornaments are a great way of sharing family memories!

Amy at BSS Media and Cafe Press were kind enough to offer me the opportunity to make 2 of their personalized porcelain Christmas ornaments. I was very excited about this, as I have purchased a few Cafe Press items in the past and had a great experience!

(When I was getting married I created some cute t-shirts for myself and my hubby-to-be. One of them was similar to this shirt:)


The process was very easy for me to do. Whether you have a lot of computer experience, or a little, it is very user friendly.

Step 1: Choose your design. There are nearly 30 styles you can choose from.



Step 2: Upload your photo. (It may take you a bit of time to choose the right one) Once you have it uploaded, you can use the edit design button to fit your photo into the design. There are arrows which allow you to increase or decrease the size and move the position. There are also some designs which allow you to insert text such as "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays 09."



Step 3: Preview your ornament. This shows you what it will look like on your tree. And the cute red ribbon comes with it for hanging on the tree.



Step 4: Add your ornament to your cart and proceed with checkout. The ornament costs $12 plus shipping. This may seem a bit pricier than other ornaments, but this is a unique item that you will cherish in your home or will make a great gift for your friends and relatives.

CafePress also has a specific ornament designer they have created for their partner Autism Speaks. Cafepress will give an additional 10% of revenue from these ornament sales to Autism Speaks, dedicated to helping kids with Autism. This is a different designer tool with different templates which can be found at http://www.cafepress.com/designer/ornament/index.aspx?theme=autism.

If an ornament is not on your gift list, you can also find other unique items at CafePress. Right now, they are having a special promotion: $9 special tees!
