First, I switched printing companies for our 'offline family blog.' It was so insanely difficult. The company I had been using,went out of business. There were few options for print-on-demand single-run book printing companies that would keep my work private. I finally decided on Lulu.com. It was a beast to do this. Uploading my PDFs took a lot of trial and error. But finally, the yearly personal history book is done and the book will be printed. To see what I'm talking about, click on this article Personal History Is Important Too. Now... to wait for Lulu.com to process and ship!
|2011 Family Vacation Scrapbook Cover|
I also finally printed our family vacation 2011 book. Yeah, I know... little behind there. Seriously, I didn't decide that the 2011 trip south needed it's own scrapbook until sometime last year. Last year I created the 7 yearly scrapbooks (for 2011) and two family history scrapbooks. Plus, I published the two eBooks listed in the side bar. Along the way, I realized that the 2011 trip needed it's own book to do the story justice. So, I slowly, but surely, worked on the project. Once my eBooks were published and the family and heritage scrapbookswere printed; it was time to finally wrap up this scrapbook!
This isn't exactly a 'digital scrapbooking' blog, so I posted the new techniques I tried on my other blog in a posted entitled Power Scrapbooking Slowed Down by Switching Printers.
In any case, Presto Photo (formerly Viovio) is the company I'm using for my scrapbook. Hopefully things will turn out and I can finish printing the 2012 scrapbooks, clear off some space on the computer and get back to designing Heritage Scrapbooks that I have planned for this year. (And maybe get a jump start on the 2013 albums.)
