It’s already May 21st and I’ve only posted 4 times this month! I didn’t realize I was slacking that much…
The good news is that my last presentation is today and they’ve all gone really well so far. I’m so happy to be almost done – public speaking is one of my biggest fears! In other good news, I’m not sick anymore! It took me out for about a week, but I feel fine now. So, I guess I don’t have any more excuses for not posting!
Today I want to share one of my new favorite things – photobooks! I’m obsessed! I’ve used both MyPublisher and Shutterfly to make books and I’ve been happy with both companies. I should note that I’m in no way affiliated with either company - I just love photobooks.
The first book I made was with pictures from our New Orleans trip.
I used MyPublisher to make this one. When I signed up they were running a special – a free 5.75”x7.75” hardcover book for new customers. So, I only paid $8 (for shipping)! The quality is excellent and I ended up ordering another copy for my mom for Mother’s Day. They have deals all the time, so keep an eye out! *You do have to download their software to make your photobook.
The next book I made was from all our 2011 pictures.
I used Shutterfly to make this one. I bought a Groupon a few months ago for an 8”x8” hardcover book, but waited until the last day to order it! Sigh… Oh, and don’t judge the quality by my pictures. These are just a printscreen from their site.
Right now, through 5/29, you can get your own free 8”x8” book (just pay shipping) by clicking here or with code 4Y82-D3M9 at checkout (Thanks to The Cents’Able Shopping for finding that deal).
So now I’m obsessed with photobooks! They are a great way to organize and show off your photos. Both are only ½” thick, so they take up way less room than a traditional photo album. I think I’m going to keep an eye out for more deals and start making books out of my older pictures.
Have you made a photobook before? How long does it take you to put one together? It took me 4 hours to make the 2011 one!
Have you tried any other companies? Would you recommend them? I have another Groupon for Mixbook, so we’ll see how they rate.
