A while back I was whining, I KNOW, hard to believe isn't it...about running
out of space for my pictures. Here's what I did to eliminate that little problem....
This was a super fun box to open. Inside this little brown box was my blog in print! Here's what the front cover looks like. I downloaded this picture of the carnation from somewhere on the web. But I could have used any picture, you get to choose.
The web site: Blog2Print makes the process easy!! Trust me, if I can do it, you can do it! Blog2Print has made it quick and easy!! You will need to sign in and create an account. Then you can start creating a book right away. **MAJOR HINT** Clean up your post. In my first book (shown below) I printed one year and just threw caution to the wind, and printed it all. With the second book, I went through all of my blog post and deleted
post(s) that I didn't want to keep. You know, those quick two line post telling about a giveaway that happened over a year ago. I also took the time to delete some of my pictures that I didn't want in the book. If you take the time to do this it will reduce the number of pages in your book and will end up costing less for the printing. If you click on this picture you can see that it is my very first blog posting.
Here's a picture of a couple of my posting from August 2009. My beautiful daughter and her Goodwill suit and us moving. WOW!! Can't believe two years has passed so quickly.
Here's the post from our fun trip to the Cabot Sock Factory! It really was
lots of fun, I'm hoping to go back again this year.
Here's the cover of the first book that I printed. Since it was Marcy's Purdue quilt
that got me started, I felt it very appropriate to put it on the cover of my
Insanely Cheap Quilting blog book. It was the quoted price of having this
quilt machine quilted that pushed me into purchasing my HQ16.
Here's a page from the book. For me this is a fantastic way to keep tabs on all of the quilts that I have quilted. It does bring back some good and some not so good, hey, not gonna lie...not all of those quilts were a piece of cake you know!! lol!! But the blog book was easy peasy!!
Here's the two books, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!
Like I said, you can spend as much or as little time and money on this
little project as you like.
makes it do-able, very do-able!! OH!! Before I close, I need to tell you that at
one point I couldn't figure out what I was doing, imagine that...anyway, they also have wonderful customer service without making you feel like a big dummy. (just sayin'...)
And another...... OH!!!
Since I've gotten all of my old postings in print I can just delete them freeing up more space and I can just keep on posting! After all, who (no one!!) is going to go back and read any post over a year old!
Okay, that's it for today, I've got to get that machine moving.
thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say..............
