Blurb Books Review and Giveaway

Blurb Books Review

Blurb Books Review

Although I keep our sons’ faces and names hidden on little Indiana, that doesn’t mean that I never take their pictures!

We’ve seen and done so many things that I thought it would be wonderful to have a book that captured a recent trip, something about them and our fun time, instead of only mom, mom, and more mom.

I just had to capture that fun with a Blurb book!

Well, we have a lot of recent trips to choose between, so I choose a trip where I took some of the best pictures of our boys ever: our Nashville, Indiana trip. Here I would have thought that Nashville was a destination more in tune for shoppers, yet even now those two still speak of the fun they had!

The ability to share it with other family members and friends via Twitter and Facebook (or even the blog) is a great little bonus. They can purchase this book of adorable and see what it is I actually do.

Creating a Blurb Book

Once I had a rough idea of how I wanted to proceed, I had a lot of decisions to make! Luckily, creating a Blurb book is very easy!

I could have uploaded photos from my computer, or snagged my images from the little Indiana Tumblr or Instagram account.

There were so many page layouts–and multiple photos could go on one page. For someone like me who enjoys having choices…well, let’s just say that I appreciated the design options.

It was easy to use, a snap to rearrange, and I loved the idea of including Facebook comments with photos if I so desired. Some of my friends are rather funny!

The end result is gorgeous! It looks incredible–and I can’t wait to share it with our boys. Visitors to our home always, always, ALWAYS pick it up and flip through it.

    I have already used Blurb. I did a LOT of research before selecting them and they have been great. The quality of teh printed piece is wonderful. My first, and so far only, book was a project I worked on with my cousin in Ireland. He wrote his memoir and I designed and published it for him. I do have a queue of future projects that are currently in various stages of progress and will most certainly be using them again.
