I’m so totally thrilled with how this little book turned out. All along, throughout the project, I had been hoping to print all my photos from Project 365 into a Blurb book and it was so fun to get the book yesterday and finally see them all in print. I was so excited about getting it I was tracking the package online every day and left a little note for the postman about which buzzer was mine (they never buzz, and then I have to trek out to the UPS store to get a package that could have just been delivered straight to me!).

Anyways, I love it. It is the visual record of my 2012. I intentionally printed the book with 8 photos per spread – partially because of cost, partially because I love being able to see about a week at a time. Also, as I’ve said repeatedly throughout the year re: this project – the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Not every single photo is special. But together they are so special! And I love that I can remember things that were happening that day when I look at the photos. I made this 7×7 book using Blurb and I am very happy with the results.

Plus – guess what? I learned how to manually set my white balance when I took these photos this morning! So Project 365 (the learning, the growing, the improving) has come full circle and is going full steam ahead. Yay!

  1. What a lovely way to tie up your project. Well done Steph. I’m proud of you. I’ve always been dreaming about creating my own blurb book. Were you happy with the quality of the prints? Do you plan on making any more in the future, and if so, what themes? :)

    1. Hi Malavika – thanks! I love it and I’m really happy I did it. I am happy with the quality, but I also realize that I didn’t choose the highest quality options for paper/ink that they offer. There are much pricier options! But the standard one was fine for my purposes. I hope to make lots more in the future! Not sure what themes yet though. :) I would definitely recommend trying Blurb or any other photobook-printing service! It’s so fun.

  2. I love this idea and have been doing something similar for my sons first year (he’s currently 8 months) but I’m not sure how to go about collating and printing them. How did you do it? What website/company/program did you use?

      Hi Kate! I used blurb.ca to print my book, they have online software you can use to import the photos, customize the book style, and then have it delivered! I would definitely recommend it!
