2012 Blurb book

Eeek! I'm so excited, my 2012 Blurb book has arrived! It took me a while to get it ordered but it's here now and I love it.

It's a pretty fat one again.

And as usual it features a family photo on the cover - I love that doing Blurb books for our family photo albums forces us to take a family pic at least once a year.

Inside the pages are sturdy and beautifully printed. The colours are vibrant and true to my files. I couldn't be happier!

I've added the 2012 book to our collection.

Here is what I have so far: a book detailing our house renovations on a previous home we owned (8x10 inch);7 years of family photos (all 8x10 inch); and a small 7x7 inch book showcasing some of the cupcakes I've made.

I think they look so understated and classy on our bookcase and I love that they are so accessible and easy to store.

For those who haven't seen my "How I organise photos" post, I talk about how I sort my digital files and put them into Blurb books every year - you can see the post here.

  1. Jen- I love, love this! How cool and great that you've got 7 years of photos organized and in one place :) I would love to see more shots of your house book if you want to share them, but no pressure! Hope you are well :)

    1. I'd be happy to share it in a post soon :)

  2. Thanks for the coupon code! I just submitted my order for a 340 page book.... photos from our trip to SE Asia! I've joked with my husband that 'a heavy burden is lifted' as soon as I hit that Purchase button....I know that my photos and precious memories will be preserved!

    Question for you: do you purchase the PDF version? say something happened (book got lost, fire etc), is there a way to order the books through Blurb again? Or could they reprint it from the PDF? Or is there a way to save the booksmart file?

    1. I never order the PDF version. I back up my computer regularly and store a backup off-site too, and that includes my Blurb book files. Also, once you have ordered your book it is stored in your Blurb account online and you can order more copies if you wish.

  3. Hey Jen. Wow, I'm so jealous of the organisation in your life... I have SO many photos, all over the place. Working in IT like I do, the last thing I feel like doing is sitting down at a PC and working some more when I get home. I don't suppose you'd do your big sister a favour..... *hint hint* ;-)
