I have been busy creating photo books over the last week to give as gifts to the Grandparents (pretend you didn’t see this, Mum). The most time consuming part of the process is sifting through the thousands of photos I took over the last year and narrowing them down to include in a book that won’t weigh so much that it costs me $1000 to ship to Australia and Japan. It’s quite the project.
The upside is that I often come across forgotten gems – photos that are just begging to be blogged, like these from Portland Sunday Parkways way back in May…
This weekend marks the beginning of the official countdown to Christmas – complete with a home made advent calendar. Oh yes, I got crafty. It’s shocking! I might even take photos to share my creation.
The first item on the calendar is a trip to the Christmas Tree farm and, of course, some decorating to a soundtrack of every single Christmas song I own. Can’t wait!
P.S. In case you were wondering, I use Blurb for my photo books and highly recommend them if you need a book in a hurry. I ordered my books on Sunday and they arrived in the mail on Thursday.
