"I Treated..."

...myself this past holiday
to the publishing of my blog over at Sharedbook.
I saw the idea on Lynn's blog here...
and the rest was history.
Above are pictured the volumes from 2008 and 2009.
Yes, I will be publishing my 2010
volumes soon!
Thanks Lynn for the great idea and the link.
I am very pleased with this product!
It is fun to note that
my first blog post ever was a cactus...
you can see it on the cover of Volume One
on the far right.
So, then, I think it is only fitting
and perfect to wish each and everyone today
a Happy Cactus Monday, too!
:)

congratulations, that looks really good... It's neat to see one owns work printed. Now I have never looked in to that whole program and seeing this makes me wanting to know more, can you pick what you pictures and text you want to include in the book?

wow, they look great!!

When I tried it and saw the preview I didn't go for it. I think because I always had so much text, my images were too small. But my text also mattered to me.

I was going to try "Blurb" but I never get around to finishing it. It's time consuming and pricey.

Oh well! But these do look impressive!♥

I bet it is a wonderful book with all your little paintings!

Absolutely beautiful what a treasure! How many pages did you do in each of your books? I did full years in one book and they are thick/heavy. Two per year might be better! Thanks for the idea.
I'm glad you are happy with them. I love mine. And thanks for the shout out to my blog (twice!!!) Sweet of you. Enjoy!!!

What a lovely idea! It'll be fun to sit and leaf through these! I always like real photoalbums for that reason! Happy New Year!

How wonderful and what a treat! I think it would be fun to do one that just has my pets in it, one for my cabin pics and then one for art. Or maybe it would be funner to just have them all in date order and reflect on my life. Either way, it would be fun.

Oh so nice!
I remembered when Lynn showed them I thought it was a great idea and wanted it.
Now I thought the same. But it is something you have to take your time for......
They look stunning Margaret! And indeed it is a treat to yourself♥
