Happy New Year! I hope all of you have a wonderful 2014.

I'm sorry I haven't been very active on Belles this past month. I've been enjoying the magic and craziness of our daughter's first Christmas. It was just wonderful and we are so loving this special time of watching our baby grow into a little girl. It's hard to imagine that our little bundle of joy will be a year old next month! It's been too fast-- I'm not ready!

I'm looking forward to all the wonder and adventure this new year will bring to all of us. And to Belles on a Budget too! Belles is ready for a makeover, so over the next couple of months, you'll be seeing a lot of changes to the site with fresh content and new posts.

I hope everyone had happy happy holidays and cheers to 2014!

Today is a great day to shop for photo cards! Snag a deal on your holiday cards or make your Christmas cards into wedding save the dates or thank you cards!
Here are some of the photo card deals I'm seeing today:

- Cardstore has all holiday cards on sale for just 49¢ each! What a steal! And shipping is free.

- PearTree Greetings is taking 40% off all holiday cards, so cards start at just 52¢ each. So many beautiful designs!

Wohoo! The Vistaprint label deal is back again! It's been a while, so make sure you grab these while you can! You can score 140 personalized labels for just $5- including shipping! That makes each label 3-4¢- a fantastic price.

I love these labels because there are so many beautiful designs and you can customize them for so many uses! For a wedding, you can add your names and wedding dates and use these as favor tags, labels for out of town bags, or a little detail on DIY programs or bags for a candy buffet. Or use these for holiday gift tags, favors for a birthday party or shower, or cute address labels for holiday cards or invitations. So many possibilities!
You can snag a voucher for a personalized self-inking stamp for just $20 today at Mamasource! And shipping starts at just $2.75. Stamps like these are perfect for save the dates, invitations, rsvp cards, and thank yous- they look nice and save you the expense of having addresses printed or the time of having to hand write them yourself! Each stamp has enough ink for 2,000+ impressions, which is a great value!
Through tomorrow, Modcloth is taking an extra 20% off all party dresses- even their newest designs! This is a fantastic way to save on a beautiful and unique dress for your engagement photo shoot, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. Or take a look to see if those perfect bridesmaid dresses are there!

Many of their dresses are very reasonably priced anyway, so the sale will get you a deal! And remember that you get free shipping on orders of $50 or more. I love this simple and elegant Breakfast Special Dress on sale for just $37.99 and this chic navy Vogue Wave Dress down to $39.99. Decisions, decisions!

Get the week off to a great start with some of the fantastic Mommy and Baby Deals today! First, Groupon has a $15 voucher to Toys R Us and Babies R Us for just $7.50! Wohoo! I've already grabbed mine! The voucher is good through November 23rd, and there aren't that many restrictions, so I'm hoping to use it on necessities like diapers!

You can still snag 50% off your first box of baby goodies (customized for you baby's age) at Citrus Lane! Use code TAKEHALF at checkout. That makes the box just $12.50 with free shipping!  I'm really loving these boxes- my last one came with an adorable SkipHop toy, a board book, a full size tube of baby bath wash, travel diaper cream, and even special nail polish for me! Plus it's fun to have a surprise package once each month. Remember that this does sign you up for a monthly subscription for $25 per box, but if you decide it's not for you, you can cancel anytime.
