My New Blurb Book = AWESOMENESS!

You've heard of Blurb, right?
Of course you have, you've read about it here. Anyways, I decided to give it a shot.
 I created a book featuring all of the wonderful items in my shops and the beautiful photography of these items.

So I set to work making my book of beauties.

Isn't she pretty? (and that headband is available here)

Excuse the photo - fluorescent lighting and camera phones = disaster photo.

Can I tell you how much I LOVED making this book? It was the easiest photo book I've ever made. EVER. I chose the design my own book, so I placed the photos in the order I wanted (auto place is available too, which makes it super super SUPER easy!).

Go check them out! These make wonderful birthday, Christmas, or just because gifts! And the best part, is YOU design them.

Happy Crafting!
(And book making!)

Ten on Tuesday (link party)

Today's Ten on Tuesday theme: 10 things I want to do with the kiddos this summer! (Photos courtesy of and my own personal stash)

1. Paint our toes! Miss E loves to have her toes painted, so that's first on my list ~ probably this weekend!

2. Yard work, in the form of child labor. I kid! But seriously, E is in this new "I help you, mommy?" phase, and while she's eager, we're going to teach her about working around the house with some simple chores to start. Supervised, of course. (And don't our plants look good?)

Feature Friday...except that it's Wednesday

With the baby being sick last week (yay for penicillin allergies), I wasn't able to do my scheduled feature Friday I'm doing it today. And it's a really good one so you'll be happy I did it.
