Blog Book

Okay, Okay, I know this isn't really a craft, however this blog is called Sarah's Never-Ending Projects, and this was a doozy of a project! It's another one of those things that have been on-going, that I finally saw an end to!

I slurped my blog on Blurb (blurb.com) and made it into a book! This was for our family blog for the year 2008. It's harder than it seems though... you totally have to re-download and re-format every single picture that it slurps from your blog, because the image quality from being downloaded from your files to internet, back to your files is very poor. On top of that, it gives each picture it's own page so there's TONS of picture formatting to do, and page reduction, editing of text, etc. It took me FOR-EV-ER!

But it's finally done, and now I can breathe a sigh of relief for approximately 1 second, before I go and start on 2009!

Though tedious and seemingly never-ending, I completely recommend doing this. Getting the book in the mail makes it all worth it, and to know that we have sufficiently documented that year makes me feel good as well!

That is a really cute idea! I may have to steal it for next year. Seems like it would be less time-consuming than the traditional scrapbook?!

Cute shower idea too! I like to go to your blog, steal ideas, and let people give me the credit for them... for a few minutes and then I always give you the credit!

Love

I love these blog books. My sister in law has it down to a science to make it a lot easier. Sometime I'll have to tell you how she does it. Yours turned out adorable! All your hard work paid off.
