{ a blurb about blurb }


One of my goals this summer is to organize all of our vacation photos and actually do something meaningful with them, which is why I have Blurb on the brain these days. Have you discovered Blurb yet? If not, you're in for a treat.

Blurb is an amazing DIY publisher and online community that celebrates the joy of books and enables anyone to design and publish stunning, coffee table quality books–affordably. After researching several photo book options and DIY publishers, I used Blurb last year to create a wedding book for my brother and was beyond thrilled with the final result. 

Book Ideas

Aside from the extensive features and customization options available through Blurb's free BookSmart template program, my favorite feature on the site is the Bookstore. Here you can browse thousands of books created and published via Blurb and preview the first 15 pages of each book. Warning: This feature is extremely addictive!.
Oh...did I mention you can also opt to sell your book through Blurb?

For starters, check out these Blurb books (some of my faves).

That should keep you busy for a bit this weekend. :)
Much to catch up on...missing you all!
I'll be back Monday!
