I made a photo book

Hi all... I decided that it would be nice to have a keepsake photo book for my BJP pieces. One of the blogs I read had mentioned My Publisher, so I decided to give them a try. They had a two-for-one special, so I got two copies of my book for the price of one. The layout software was pretty easy to use, and I made a hard-cover book with a printed paper jacket. I am very impressed with the results. You can view my book online. The shipping costs to Canada were pretty high, though, so if I want to do this again I might look for a company on this side of the border.

HUGE, GIGANTIC WOW!!! OMG, if the "real" book is as fabulous as the "cyber" book, it's totally worth the cost. I'm going to do it too! Will you let us know how you like it when you receive it? What a great gift. And your tribute to your Mom (including its liberal touch of YOU) makes me weep for joy!

Just remembered -- Lulu.com in the US does photo books, too at a fairly reasonable price.

Really nice. That's a great way to share your beaded pages when you don't have the beaded ones with you. And you did a very nice job of putting it together.

Thanks for all the kind words. Sorry I didn't make it clear - I have already received the book and it's fabulous!
