A rep from Lulu contacted me about making a book via their schnazzy website in exchange for a review on my blog. I had never worked with Lulu before, but was very impressed with how easy it was to get around & upload photos & organize my book.
I created a 20-page, 12" x 12" book entitled "The Adventures of Susan & Nikki: a photo story" & gave it as a gift to my adventure pal last night. (There may or may not have been some tear shedding involved.)
The book captures our 1st year of great fun & hijinks. And it makes me smile every time I look at it!
I kept it strictly photos only (except for a personal quip on the last page)---but I had the option to include captions if I wanted.
When the book arrived on my doorstep I literally had an intense "ooh" & "aah" moment. I couldn't stop gawking! I was very impressed. VERY. And I'm now a Lulu fan. 100%.
Prior to uploading many of the photos, I created picture mosaics through bighugelabs.com
And I love how I can create books & even sell them if I wanted to. Makes me tinker with the idea of popping my favorite photos in a book & mass producing them. Ok, maybe not the mass producing part. Yet.
And guess what?? Lulu wants to give away one 20 page 8.5" x 8.5" hardcover photo book to a WhiMSy love reader!!
So, leave a comment: Why not tell me your wish for the new year, your dreams for 2011...
