Books Times Five

I've been making a few Blurb books lately.

All but one are for my grandkids. The other is for my mom.

I like getting these poems down in a book for safekeeping.

And they seem to like receiving them, too!

Blurb makes me smile.

I love that you do this! I really need to do this with my blog - it's the only journal glimpse into ME that there will be.

Fun! I hadn't thought of actually creating anything other than picture books in Blurb. I wonder if I could do a cookbook!

I love how you've got Blurb books and Blog2Print books. I'm sure everyone enjoys receiving their very own books.

Love this! I have been putting my blog into book form for the past few years, but yours are super special and I think anyone would love getting them. They are really pretty too! I love that Halloween one!

One day your whole family will thank you. To have those books, the poems, thoughts, and words in them--what a treasure.

Hi Sue,

That is one of those fake electric fireplace things. It is free standing and it heats up our room just perfectly. Kyle figured 11 cents an hour to run it. It brings of the chill and is worth not turning up the thermostat for.

Hope that help. My mother-in-law got ours at Home Depot.

You are an inspiration! Love your books and your ideas and your get-up-and-go approach to life!

I so love my Blurb book, "A Song for my Mother." It is already one of my most prized possessions. I have it close at hand so that I can read it often. You'll never know how much it means to me, Sue.

Cherie said...

Blurb is the greatest thing since indoor toilets!! Seriously - I love making the books but it is just like Christmas when you get to open the package and look at it.

I think it is so great that you made these special books of your writing :-D

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What a great idea! I'm about saving some money to do at least one year of my blog in a book!

Caroline said...

I keep saying I am going to check Blurb out and then something else comes up! I HAVE to check it out today! These look great and I agree that it's a great idea for safekeeping. What a smart gift idea! These are so special!

Gail said...

These are beautiful!

I would like to print my blog for the family history, but I fear I don't have enough money.
