Blog Books

One of my very best friends had a beautiful baby girl on St. Patrick's Day. Throughout her pregnancy, Jess did an awesome job updating her blog with pictures and stories. Even though we live in different cities, I really felt like I could share in her excitement and anticipation. Reading the updates and seeing pictures of her growing belly made me even more thrilled for little Lucy's arrival.

As a gift to the new mom, I decided to design and print her blog as a book. I did this a couple years ago for my sister-in-law when she was pregnant with the twins. I just think it will be so cool for these kids to go back and read how excited their moms were for their arrival, and how much they were loved even before they were born.

Here are some pictures of the blog book I created for Jess:


Blog books don't have to be limited to pregnancy blogs - imagine baby's first year blog books, traveling blog books, engagement blog books, cooking blog books. If you spend all this time documenting your life, won't you want to cherish it in a hard copy some day? A blog book allows you to share your adventures with future generations - isn't that an exciting thought? If you are interested in making a blog book, let me know and we can discuss custom pricing. Don't let your stories be lost in cyberspace - create a lasting heirloom!
