Tell Your Story with Blurb

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing how and why Blurb is such an incredible source for telling your story—whether it includes photos, words, or both. I realize that not everyone has the desire to write a novel or sell a book of their photos. Some people just want to commemorate a trip, an event, or a special occasion. Others may want to visually capture a business concept or life experience. Whatever the inclination, Blurb makes it easy and affordable to realize it.

It’s really is something to marvel at.

Give Your Story A Stage!

So the other week I shared a bit of the Blurb story and how they came to unleash the power of self-publishing. But Blurb is actually way more than a self-publishing platform. They are really a tour de force of creativity that strives to help give your story – your inspiration – a stage. And they provide some really incredible tools to make that possible.

Get Freezing & Get Versatile with Bernardin

I love products that are versatile (aka: items that I can use for more than only one purpose! 🙂 ). I also love making my own homemade foods, jams, salsas and whatever else I can find a good recipe for and the time to make. So, it’s no surprise that the Bernardin Freezer Jars are a perfect fit for our kitchen. The Freezer Jars have a handful of great features that I am simply loving as I put them to good use in our freezer, fridge and home!

Pea to Pumpkin ~ 2 GIVEAWAYS! ($50 Babies R Us GC & Baby Journal!) #PeaToPumpkin

index

After being a mom for (almost!) nine years now, I’ve learned that there are great parts (and hard parts) of all ages of kids. With the recent addition of a new little baby boy in our home though, I’m especially reminded of some of the delightful and special moments that come with having little baby in our home. I love creating memories with and for our children…and it’s something that is important to me as a parent…so I’ve made an effort to put together a baby book for each of our children. Our 5th little guy is no exception and we discovered a fabulous baby journal to fill with all of his special moments, memento’s, growth and development records, etc.
