Next up on the Christmas gift list involved a project with zero sewing. Which was good in the while running out of time scheme of things.
I may have mentioned that we went to Italy this summer. And that we took tons of pictures. But at the sake of not covering every wall with vacation photos, I needed to find another way to easily display them without becoming overwhelming. Enter Derek’s gift….the photo book.
Blurb has lots of options for how you want to put together the book and I decided to download their program because it gave me the most control. I went with the upgraded paper which has a slight sheen to it….especially when you are trying to photograph it. So in person the colors are so vivid. Promise.
Originally I thought about narrating the pictures and adding words all over the place. But then I nixed the idea and let the pictures speak for themselves. I could fit a whole lot more pictures that way. And it took a whole lot less time thinking of witty things to say about each picture. Sorry honey.
I tried to vary my layouts (which was super easy to do with the program).
Derek loved it and now all of Italy memories are easily accessible on the side table in the living room.
So all I need to enjoy it is a glass of red wine. But remember it was a gift for Derek of course….
Disclaimer: Blurb has no idea who I am (other than my order number) and had nothing to do with my post. I just wanted to share how much I loved their product with all of you. I think more photo books are in my future.
