Blurb Photo Book

I just got back today from a little trip to NYC with Mr. D.  
We went to have a little get-away and we also went to visit my 
brother and his wife before they leave NY.  My brother has been going to Cornell 
and is graduating next week. I'm super proud of him and it was a lot of fun to spend a
few days with them in NYC. I'll share some fun things we did on our vacation in a bit...

But first, this is what I did for Mother's Day this year. 
I finally finished a project I started last year.  I wanted to do something with all of the cute photos 
I had from a photo shoot with the kids, and from Baby G's new born pics.  
I haven't been good about printing my pictures and placing them in photo books, 
so I decided to make a  Blurb book.  I can't tell you how much I loved the Blurb program.
It was extremely easy to use and I was very impressed with the quality of the book.  
I printed a book for both my mom and my mother-in-law,
then I printed a book for each child to have when they get a bit older.  

My goal is to make a Blurb book each year, 
so that I make sure I'm doing something with all of our digital photos. 
At the suggestion of my sister-in-law, Brooke, 
I'd like to start the books with each school year and then end with the summer.  
I like that idea of organizing it with the school year, since that is how I tend
to think of the year anyway, with a grade.
 I am really excited to have a hard copy of all those pics I'm taking that are normally just 
saved on my discs and hard drives. 

I have also seen people make normal books with Blurb as well.  
If you have an idea for a book, but don't have a publisher, you can just make your book, 
text or photo, and print it to sell until you get a publisher.  
Once again, the quality is fantastic!


  1. Great Mother's Day gift! I have been toying with the idea of photo books, but I haven't gotten one yet. I may in the future. Thanks for sharing yours. Stopping by from SITS.

  2. Your book looks so great! I recently had a blurb book printed of our wedding photos. It sure is nice to have the "best of" photos all in one place!

  3. So great. What a good idea to do this every year. Much better than flimsy plastic photo albums!
