thank you for the nice comments about the corsage i made, everyone! next week, i'll share a craft project that didn't go so well and it's a real doozy. but, until then, one last post about our first blurb book, which arrived on our anniversary - sweet. i'm really happy with it and have already started on the next one. if you've exhausted everything else on the web, you can see every single page here ;). i organized it by season with a separate chapter for home, but will combine them from now on. i hope i don't get bored halfway through the year, though. it would be weird to have two seasons in full technicolor and the others blank.
during the process, i learned a few things -
- there are those who take more photos than me, but i post a lot of them here and on flickr. too many. i'll edit more.
- i photograph a lot of flowers. again, too many. my goal is to find more grit and combine it with the pretty. love the contrast.
- we must do some new things.
- i love diptychs, especially when they play off one another.
- the higher the image quality the better. don't skimp on this and take the extra effort to meet the suggested requirements. you won't be sorry.
there's a very good article in the october issue of martha stewart living that summarizes the different services you can use to make a book with an abbreviated version online here. i really think everyone should do it. who needs a book deal to be published, anyway?
and, if that's not enough for you, pj mentioned a service called blog2print that will print your blog, including the comments. she is also having a fantastic giveaway this week for a $75 amazon e-gift certificate, so please visit her to enter.
ps green tea mix in milk makes me so HAPPY and matches the cover of our book! tastes just like a starbucks green tea latte. the tea, not the book.
