Can't Wait to Show You....
My 2009 BLOG BOOK!!!
I happened upon this website to print out blogs and it was SO EASY! It only took me a few minutes.. for real! The only time it took was find a picture to put on the front and back! I received it in the mail a few days ago and I love it! Its not as beautiful as a digital scrapbook as the pictures are small (wallet-size). But it is amazing to have so much of our past year journaled.
It was entirely rewarding as I watched Hubby on the couch look through it and saw him have so much fun reminscing through the funny stories. I would hear him laugh and say, " I totally forgot about the Mysterious Wet Spot --that was hilarious!" Hubby was so proud of my little blog accomplishment and thanked me for capturing our family's stage to remember.
So of course I want to encourage all my fellow bloggers to try it! My book is about 80 pages long and was around $50. The videos will not print out at all-not even a picture.. so if you have a lot of videos on your blog--this might not be ideal!
There is a lot I would change around about this book to make it more aesthetically pleasing--but there are not many options and honestly I would have been overwhelmed and never gotten my blog printed out. So-yay, I have a blog book of my 2009 posts and it took up only a few minutes!
This next picture has absolutely NOTHING to do with the post--except that this picture was uploaded to my computer at the same time as the previous picture and I just wanted to share cute little Minnie! This is a new little outfit that looks SO cute on her. Pink chenille, satin, and leopard print! How fun!
I think it looks like she is doing a tap dance routine in this picture!
And for those of you who have asked when I will start selling more flowerbands on Etsy... I have finally added more! (Etsy is an online shop for hand-made items--very cool stuff--look around!) So click HERE to go to my Frills and Flowers Etsy site!
And last but not least.... I was laying awake one night disturbed by all the hurt in Haiti and wondering what I could do! I wish I could just get on a plane, grab a few children that were left without family and bring them home!
It just seems like as a mom with small children that I don't have a lot of helping out options--but then I wondered if I could do something with my flowerbands to help. I am wanting to use my little business for greater good! So I figured out on Ebay I could have a percentage of my sales go directly to the Red Cross, and Ebay refunds listing fees for giving to charity! YAY! So I have 100% of the final sale price going to the Red Cross! Not only can I pray, and give money--But I can help RAISE money!(however small it will be.. its still some!)
