Today, we finally finished part 1 of a set of 2 books (yes, 2 books!) we are creating for a mother's blog on the first year of her daughter's life. It took us about two months to complete it and all I can say is that I am eternally grateful for the "slurping" abilities at Blurb.com. Their software has the capability of pulling down all the text and images from where they are stored online and importing them directly into the application. I seriously doubt we could have done this project as effectively and as quickly had we not had that option available to us.

This is my client's first child, so there you can imagine, there were quite a lot of pictures and copy to be used. To give you an idea, the first book was roughly 370 pages! When you get to that size book, it becomes increasingly difficult for the client to review the pages and make changes. We broke it up into phases so we could review and modify the pages within each section thereby avoiding my client getting overwhelmed.

I believe the end result was a great success and now that it's in print, we're ready to start on the second book. Click here to view the book

PicturiaPress turned my blog of my baby's first 6 months into a book, and in doing so created a beautiful record of memories that I, and my family, can always treasure. Suzzanne was incredible - she created wonderful scenes on each page that captured what I was thinking visually and matched my artistic sensibilities. The entire process was easy and the final product was much more than I could have done on my own!
