My First Published Book...........

Well I have had a book published but I've got the only copy,it sounds good though,doesn't it ? I've actually had all my blog posts from last year printed into a book,I'd had this idea for a while but wasn't sure where to get it done until my friend Linda told me about this website called Blog2Print.I would highly recommend them, I ordered it on the 3rd August and it arrived today all the way from the U.S.A. It arrived in pristine condition,with a hard backed cover and printed on good quality paper. It's format is like a real book with an index and a foreword written by me,lol. I don't tend to look back at my old posts so to see them all again in a book was great and some of the posts made my girls and I have a little chuckle,some things I'd even forgotten about until I saw them again in print.






This is why my blog as evolved from just about crafting to a snippet of my everyday life,I'm not very good with words and have never kept a diary so doing this I can look back on my life and some of those special memories and hopefully in years to come my grandchildren too, to say I am pleased with the end product is an understatement,it as exceeded my expectations.

I LOVE this!!! Such a great idea!!!

Oh wow, so wonderful. Most people start their crafting blog's to show crafting but end up with a mix of crafting and on-line diary, or in my case of late just a diary!

Will be wonderful to have one done for each year and look back in years to come
