A Treasured Book of Memories

A couple of months ago Polar Mama shared a website that turns blogs into books.  This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time so took a peek at the website she recommended.  The site is Blog2Print and with their help I was easily able to turn our 2010 blog into a book!   DSC_7576

It was fast and easy to do and with a couple of hours of tweaking it was ready to go.  I use this blog to capture much of our day to day life so being able to capture it in printed form is a gift that will keep on giving.

Each book comes with a dedication page DSC_7580

and the ability to download any/all of your blog posts.  DSC_7581 I chose to have this book contain all posts from Jan 1 to Dec 31, 2010.  I’ll make another one of these books for 2011 early next year. DSC_7582

I am thrilled with the finished product and it is a treasure that Hannah and I will enjoy for years to come.  It is 340 pages of fun, love, growth and precious, precious memories!!

  1. I'm trying this with blurb...
    Did you have to reenter the photos that are large to improve the quality enough for the shot to show up large?
    did you add pictures
    and did you just slurp the blog and go with their layout or did you choose layouts?

  2. Beautiful book and what a treasure. I just made two books for Maisie, her 3 & 4 year old books and I'll be blogging about those later in the month...when I'm getting desperate for blog material. I'm working on her 2 year old book and I've started her 5 year old book but obviously can't complete that one until October. The books are fun and such wonderful keepsakes.
