‘Tis the season – almost – for giving gifts. To get into the spirit, we are doing our very first giveaway on Our Dream Foreclosure! If you’re in the market for a photo book, today is your lucky day.
I have put together so many photo books through Shutterfly, they actually asked me to host a photo book party and sent a bunch of free books to give away to friends. Apparently, I don’t have as many “real” friends as the good people at Shutterfly think and there are a few extra books – so, those are getting passed along to you, my virtual friends.
That’s just one example of the many books I’ve done. There’s also a few from our wedding, one of our honeymoon, one from our trip to France, others that we’ve gifted to family and friends – I could go on. I love pictures – taking them and displaying them. However, I hate scrapbooking. Just thinking about that craft-activity conjures up visions of gluey fingers, tiny scraps of paper that need to be vacuumed, photos irreversibly adhered to a page askew, and neck pain from hours bent over an endless pile of 4×6’s. NO. THANK. YOU. The neat lines, clear text and limited debris involved with digital books is far too appealing. I also love the fact that if a book was lost or fell victim to an upended latte – it’s not gone forever – it just needs to be re-ordered.
We have some friends that feel the same way. So, they came over recently for a BYOL (laptop) soiree and we shared a lovely evening not speaking to each other. See:
Ok, so there was some conversation – but we were primarily focused on our books. And drinking wine. And eating brownies – but I think I ate more brownies than anyone else. Whatever, I’m breastfeeding – that burns about 4,000 calories a day. Bring it, brownies. Speaking of too many brownies, remember when my belly was big? I updated all of you lovely readers on a weekly basis (archived here). That became my maternity journal – and that’s the book I was working on that night…
I’m looking forward to having a book of memories of the 41+ weeks I carried my precious Kenton. It was such a special time and this will be a fantastic keepsake.
