For the last year I’d been wanting to preserve this here blog on paper, and now I finally did it! With the help of Blurb.com I was able to compile together a coffee table book which I had sent to my Mom for her Christmas present. It seems every year my brother and I have this “competition” on who could get Mom to cry on Christmas, and according to him…I won! (And that I need to stop talking about it already!) But since I’m all about preservation I also have to post her reaction:
I won't go into "present" details, but I must tell you what Vicki presented us with. She managed to compiled - edit - arrange her entire Blog (which amounts to a day to day - month to month) chronology of their life and travels - - words and pictures - - 248 pages and had it bound (hard bound) and published! It has a full color jacket and forward on the inside cover. This is the beginning of a great family history to pass down. This is only from Spring 2006 through Winter 2009..........but wow! Sooooo artfully done. A true labor of love. …..… I may have to order more copies! I was so surprised to learn that she arranged everything - - did all the editing - - formatting - - compositions - - every detail her's - - - all Blurb did was publish it for her. W O W ! Great job Vicki!
It’s available online for review if you’d like to check it out! Click Here I had so much fun doing this book, that I thought I would offer my services to anyone else that might like theirs done. Then Joey reminded me how they didn’t see me the entire time I was working on it, so maybe it was more involved than I had thought, so maybe I’ll just try to focus on getting our Early Years put together. I better hurry though, before we move on to the next chapter already!
