One more time for "30 Days of Thankful"

If you've been hanging out here for a while, you might remember the "30 Days of Thankful" project that I participated in during the month of November 2013. The project is the brainchild of Cathy Zielske, and I used her templates and posted my thankful thoughts and photos during that month.




This was the first time I'd used Photoshop files for printing a book so there was a little learning curve. I wasn't thrilled with the layout of the cover, but oh well! Next time I'll take more time to preview the product before rushing through the review of my cart and hurry-up-and-order.

The only page I didn't post on my blog was the 30th day - just because I didn't have it ready to fly by the time I posted my final pages in November. So I thought I would share that page today, and also a peek at the book I ordered from Shutterfly to document my thankfulness in hard copy.








A cool thing about uploading these pages to Shutterfly was that I was able to order an extra copy of this book to send to my grandma. I know she won't totally get the pages that relate to blogging, and she may raise her eyebrows when she reads about my love of red wine, but I know that she loved the book. It is beyond her to figure out how my typed words and photos ended up in a book. :o)



I loved participating in this project during the month of November, and I found it super easy to come up with 30 things to be thankful for! It's definitely a project worth repeating in a year or two.

What a perfect plan to make a book out of this project: it'll be something to brighten any dull day in the future

I'm loving all the books I am seeing on blogs at the moment! I'm tempted to have a go myself. This is a great subject to make a book about too!

Love this book and how typically Deb of you to think of ordering one for your Grandma!

Karen said...

Gorgeous! The cover looks lovely from here. What is it that you're not happy with?

Audrey said...

Oh Deb, that is such a cool idea to make a book from that project. And I love that you gave a copy to your sweet grandmother. Is it just me....I find it so hard to buy gifts for my grandparents/great-grandparents. I'm currently working on a photobook for my favorite nature photos from 2013. Remember those? I am going to devour that book on a regular basis!!! :-)

this sure does look like a wonderful project x

Really beautiful Deb. I think it is really wonderful to see our projects and pictures in a book, my family are always thrilled with the ones I do for them. I love your last page (and picture) so much.
