A Blurb About My Book

Ever since I was a little girl,
I've wanted to write a book.
So, with the help of a little place called Blurb...
I did it!

{It's only 20 pages, and mostly, it's photos, but I think that counts anyway.}

It isn't difficult, and there's no possibility of rejection!
It's not even expensive,
especially with sales and discount codes.

{Now through April 30, 2013,
get 15% off with the discount code APRIL15.}

All I had to do was choose a subject...
I chose Pincushions!

Next I selected some pretty photos,
and followed the directions.

It was fun to select fonts and layouts.

Pretty soon I had my book ready for publishing.

It didn't take long for the mailman
to deliver my very own coffee table book
straight to our mailbox.

{I live in a remote controlled world...
I even had to put most of them away for this photo.  MEN!}

If you would like to buy a copy,
it's available for sale, even as a PDF version, 

I might have to write a sequel...
you'll see what I mean in my next post!

  7. So SO Cool!!!! I love it Amy. You are one busy bee!

  8. For my husbands birthday a few years I made him a book, its such a cute keepsake, I never thought of doing one for things I make, but this is a great idea.

  9. Oh look at you sister!! This is GREAT! Thanks so much for sharing. I will definitely be checking this out. What a wonderful idea.

  10. I love it. I have been wanting to do a Blurb book of blog posts each year. But I never get around to it. It seem too time consuming. This is a fun approach. And you know how I feel about your pincushions.


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
