I love making unique, personalized gifts for people (not just during the holidays, but all year). Blurb makes it easier for me to come up with such gifts. I made a beautiful book for notes that I can’t wait to give to grandma and papa! With the help of Blurb’s template, there are photos inside scattered inside the book too. I am so happy with how it turned out…..I want to keep it.
Blurb also has top notch photo books that you personalize, you can even upload your own illustrations. I would love to take all my kids art work and make a book. I am trying to talk my kids into writing and illustrating a book, they have such funny ideas. Blurb would allow me to capture this special project in a published book. I could even share it with others…too cool! I just thought of all those letters I saved…Dear Santa, Greetings Easter Bunny, Hello Toothfairy, Mr. President….those would be adorable in a keepsake book….just add photos. Of my gosh…I love this idea!
I absolutely LOVE Blurb and all the possible books you can create. A few other projects I would love to make using Blurb’s tempts are a recipe book. My siblings and I split a lot of my mom’s (and our favorites) recipes. I would love to scan the recipe cards and publish a book for my family. By scanning the recipe cards, the book would capture my mom’s hand writing! I have lots of photos I could add of Mom and others in the kitchen or around the table. Wouldn’t this be a nice keepsake for my siblings and I? The other is a collection of “lake” stories we have from spending years a Gun Lake in Michigan. Again, I would love to capture the stories and add all the photos of our perfect summers to create a fabulous walk down memory lane and a keepsake for my siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins! Blurb is going to help me create both of these!
