I created calendars again this year and was able to hand them out to the family and friends for Christmas. I started a bit earlier this year and had most of the photos of our work all ready for the printer. My peeps all tell me that they look forward to getting them. This is the second year so I am going to be busy trying to get 12 new art pieces ready for next years calendar. I have used Costco both years for their large 11 x 17 calendar that has generous date squares for writing.
I also got a kick in the pants and finally did my first book with our quilts. This is a project I have had on the back burner for a couple of years and got a nudge towards the end of November. Since my word for last year was "Focus" I figured it was time I focused on getting this book done.
I like the paper and the quality of the overall book. I found one thing I want to change and think I will add a couple pages for some additional work.
I used Blurb and their BookWright program and found it very easy to use. One hint: Don't change the size of your book after you start. It creates extra work re sizing text and text boxes. Ask me how I know!
Have you created your book yet? What program did you use?
