Special Delivery

A few weeks ago I returned home from an outing with the boys to a very exciting sight!  On my doorstep sat the cutest orange package you ever did see!

I excitedly tore through the tape (after carting the little dudes through the door, of course) to open...
Luke's birth day book! (Sorry about the silly last name editing, because Matt is a teacher I'd prefer to not have his students able to google his name and find this site)

I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out.  I made a hard cover 8x8 photobook, and my only complaint is that the pictures towards the binding of the book got a little cut off.  I had adjusted it to take that into account, but it still cut off more than expected.  Still, that is a pretty minor complaint!

I loved this book SO much, that the next week I decided to re-do Jack's birth day book as well! An online friend gave me a code for a free photobook (the same dimensions as Luke's) that she couldn't make use of, so I got right to it!
I had made Jack a book in the past, but it was a different size and soft covered, and for several other reasons it just wasn't exactly what I wanted for him.
I am so pleased to have made each of them their own books, and I really love the cover photos!

Shutterfly is running a special offer right now where you can get up to 30% off of a photobook, so if you have meaning to make one, I would totally recommend it!

*For the record - Shutterfly has no idea who I am, I was not compensated in any way for this post, I just really, really, REALLY love my photobooks.

Have you ever made a photobook?  Are you planning to make a photobook?

Also, I can't post today and not give a little shout-out to my sweet husband! Happy Birthday Matthew!  I love every single gray hair I've given you in the 8 years we have known each other!


  1. so beautiful!! i can't wait to see it!

    i totally didn't do one for either of mine yet...i suck at documentation...

  2. I've made a few through Shutterfly and LOVE them. Yours looks great!

  3. Adorable!!!! I just used our free book code as well, I really like shutterfly! ALSO, I just had to say I LOVE Jack's middle name! Your the first person I've ever seen use it. Our Q has a family name, and I've begged Hubby that if we ever have another boy, I want to name him Quinlan, I just think it's so unique and masculine, and it would be fun to have to boys with unique Q names.

    1. Thank you! Most translations of it are 'well-formed, or shapely/strong' but we found one translation that said it meant 'son of a handsome man' which cracked me up...needless to say Matt was then on board!

  4. I definitely need to get on the photo-book business! I still haven't even made one for Lizzy!

  5. I do photobooks for my mom of each Thanksgiving (and sometimes Christmas). I LOVE photobooks too!! I usually get mine at Walgreens. I like to see the different family Thanksgivings through the years in a couple of books!!
