054- Inside the Book

I've had a few requests to show some of the pages from my blog book. So today is your lucky day! I've enjoyed this process so much. I enjoyed doing it every day last year (ok that's not exactly the truth... some days I felt overwhelmed). I loved the reminiscing as I put the book together. I was ecstatic when I got the printed book in my hands! WOW! But I think that one of the things that I've been the most appreciative of is my wonderful year long journal. I've seen the patterns of weather, moods, hard days, good days. I've reread posts where I can't even remember what my *problem* was, just that I'd handled it. What a blessing to have this wonderful record of me!

This is one of my favorite spreads. I took a series of 11 photos with the objective of creating a panoramic photo.

I liked that I could manipulate the templates in the Blurb software. I could add lots of photos and text, or not so much.

This year I am going to work on the book as I go instead of doing all of it in a 6-week period!

So beautiful. You did a wonderful job. Did I expect anything less? Of coarse not and as usual you didn't let me down.

oh my gosh, your book is fantastic! Is the writing all your blogposts or did you add it later when you made the book? This is really really nice, I love how it turned out!
