Bound Blog


Yesterday I finally got in the mail my bound copy of the first year of this blog. I had cut-and-pasted each day of the blog into a giant word document, and printed it out in color at Kinkos (luckily I now have a color printer, which should be cheaper to print out the next year's worth).

I then sent the stack of printouts to the Library Binding Company. There I picked out the color of the cover, the color of the text, a bookmark, and what I wanted on the cover. I also decided to splurge and have them make a die to stamp on the front of the book - I'll be able to reuse this next year. The book cost $30, and the die was just under $40 to make. I'd recommend it for any other bloggers out there!

Oh, my goodness! I never thought of doing that. What an amazing idea! I'm sure the babies will love it and it will be something they will treasure.
