Photo Books make great presents and a GIVEAWAY!

Posted by  | Thursday, November 3, 2011  at 1:37 PM  

I'm a little obsessed with taking pictures of my girls and the things they do. They just change and grow so quickly and I don't want to forget a thing! So I thought that I would share one of my favorite ways of preserving memories: making photobooks! You can use any online picture service, but I like to use Shutterfly because their books are high quality, easy to make, and Shutterfly often gives out special codes and runs Groupons to make them more affordable. I've never bought a book that wasn't at least 40% off with free shipping. (And in case you are wondering, no, I am not getting anything from Shutterfly for writing this post -- I just wanted to share in case you don't already have a favorite website to make books!)


I am currently working on 3 books: last year's scrapbook, a book of funny things my girls have said (I've been writing down their silly quotes for several years now), and a school scrapbook containing pictures of our first and last days of school, favorite art projects, educational things they have done, etc. For instance, here are a few of the things I will put in their school/ art scrapbook:

The pumpkins they decorated with glitter and sequins (of which they are ever so proud):
The fall banner they made with dots, sequins, leaf painting, and apple painting
Their thankful tree (once it is finished at the end of the month, along with a list of what they said they were thankful for)
The first page that Karis actually colored entirely

I also have 3 sets of Shutterfly codes that I can give out to 3 of our readers. If you would like to get a free 8x8 photobook, 10 free holiday cards, and free shipping, please leave a comment on this post. I'll let you know next Friday (Nov. 11) who won.
