Joy made me the beautiful heart all by herself on Valentines Day. I love this piece so much; I have it displayed on my desk.
Here is another picture she’s done. I named it “Stars in the Night” because it reminds me of Vincent van Gogh painting “The Starry Night”. Although it looks like scribbles on a piece of paper, I think this picture is beautiful but maybe I am just see it through mommy goggles.
I have a box of all the boys artwork. However, after 13 years of sitting in a box, the colors have faded and diminished the charm of each piece.
I don’t want this to happen to the drawing or artwork Joy makes, will make or has made. I guess since I missed out on so much with the boys, I want to capture each moment Joy, and I share.
I know there’s so many mom’s that feel the same way I do. So, when I found out about Blurb, I just had to share it with you.
Blurb offers a simple and affordable way to preserver your child’s artwork and drawings. Blurb makes it easy for you to create any kind of book or magazine—in both print and digital formats that you can enjoy, share and treasure.
Like many great companies before it, Blurb was actually started by accident. In the early 2000s, Eileen Gittins, Blurbs’ Founder, rekindled a passion for photography while trying to figure out her next career gig.
Her goal was to compile her photos into a beautiful coffee table photo book, but she only wanted to print a handful of copies. The conundrum was that every publisher was quoting her hundreds of dollars for each book! She found this curious and frustrating. So she asked herself, are there other people like me who want to create an affordable high-quality book from their photos? The answer, of course, was yes, and it changed her life – and book publishing – forever.
In 2006, Eileen launched Blurb, a simple book-designing platform and a publishing process that could quickly produce beautifully made books at a game-changing price.
