Blogging.. I never thought I would do it.. never thought I would do it for so long:)
I have enjoyed the camaraderie.. the exchanges..the learning..It's the best online school for so many things..I have learned so much through the Web and blogging.
I think I made friends:) I think I learned new crafts.. many many recipes.. photo tips..I never even knew what Sharpen meant(EJ) before the internet and web friends.
One of my first WEB Friends..was Susan..
She has a beautiful blog..Just click here.. Savoring Time In The Kitchen~
And you will see..
She hosted a give-away a little while ago..from Blog2Print..and I must say I have entered some.. but few compared to the ones I see...
Many are not available to Canada.. Many have so many entries..I see the glass half full..many ..well ..I cannot bring myself to step out of the woodwork to win:)I always feel I have enough..too much..enough.
But I have been and she has been a constant with me..so when her contest was announced.. and available to Canada.. and I had heard how lovely these books were.I entered..All I had to do was leave a comment..I always do! With she..
How easy was that..plus my glass was lookin' half empty..Imagine my surprise..
The company was super to work with..
The quality of the book..the printing..the photos..EXCEPTIONAL!!!
I get books printed..Photo Books of my delicious grandsons..
and it's a feat..uploading every photo..high res..etc..
This was so easy..they grab your blog and print..
I use the lowest res for my blog..small sizes etc..
They printed up like HIGH res..and perfect!
There were 54 pages in my book and not one disappointed me.
The only difference I would make..is triage the page..the one page..that is all recipe..:) My fault..
The recipe was long and only 1 photo that appeared on the left hand side.. which is normal..but what a long winded recipe:)
I loved the ones that had many photos..:) Because they made them so nice!
Really these books are keepsakes..If you have a blog..do it soon..I wish I had started from the beginning..I have been doing it so long..I had to pick and chose..
I wanted each grandson in the book..so there are some Soul Foods:)
Not all recipes..
I am very happy to have this amongst my cookbooks :)
I can't believe it's me:)
Sounds funny..but it's true..
When you start.. you never think anything will look like who and what you admire..
In print..this Blog2Print..it's a miracle:)
Thanks so much Susan..and Blog2Print~
Part 2~My footnote..
I just want to add one thing..
Because this happened today.. I want it here today..
Jack Layton passed away today.
No one.. has inspired me more in the last year where optimism..and drive are concerned.
He wrote a letter to Canadians..just a few days before passing..
In my mind.. He Was and Is a great man.
God Bless Him.
I am not saying this to put a damper on a happy event..
Maybe.. some will Google and see..how GREAT he was.And be inspired to continue to have courage.
He had 1 grandaughter..Beatrice..and always spoke of her:)
I loved that.
See here.. a nice man..
