My blurb book obsession + A giveaway

It started a few years back, when Jennifer ordered her first Blog Book from Blurb. We all had to sit and look through the entire thing, admiring all of her hard work and remembering the moments that we had already forgotten about.

I tried to start one on several occasions and would end up getting too frustrated to finish. Until they added the edit layout function. Oh happy day. I was able to add pictures and change them to whatever size I wanted. Make them vertical or horizontal to fit my pictures perfectly. Stretch my text box or shrink it down.

I ended up making books for...
my brother-in-law's family,
Mother's Day,
but my most favorite are my blog books.
Instead of hundreds of blog entries just sitting on the computer,
four hardbound books now proudly sit on our shelf.
 I LOVE them!! 

They are a wee bit time consuming. But, when the mailman dropped off my box of books, I couldn't have been any more school-girl-giddy.

My first two books I ordered with the dust jacket. But my next two, I had the image printed right onto the cover (it was only a few bucks more and totally worth it).

Here's a sampling of my 2008 blog book...
