Review: Blurb Photo Books #BlurbGifts

Have you ever heard the expression “My kids think I’m the paparazzi”? I’m pretty sure mine do. Since the day they were both born, I try and capture every single moment that I can. I want them to be able to look back on their life and see it for themselves.

I use my digital camera or my Nokia Lumia to take pictures, so I don’t get to print them off as much as I would like to. I didn’t even realize it until Adam’s mom was asking me for a recent picture of Adisyn. Because I had the pictures on my computer, I didn’t realize that other’s didn’t have any.
That’s why when I got a chance to review the Blurb Photo book, I was extremely excited! These books are top quality and leave NO room for rips, tears, or mistakes!

Blurb made it SO easy to get the pictures I wanted to put in the pictures. I could choose to get them straight off my computer, off any Facebook album I had, or Instagram. So of course, I dedicated this book to 2012.
(Sorry about the blind spots, I had to take these pictures with my Smartphone)
It was extremely fast. I didn’t have to wait forever for the pictures to load. This was the amazing part. Because it was SO fast, it ended up being fun. I’ve tried to order mugs, blankets, and such from another online company that lets you take pictures from social media sites and they were loading SO slowly that I just ended up giving up on it.
That’s why I LOVE Blurb. They make it fun, and memorable. You get to look back on the pictures and place them however you like! I loved that I could change the color of the pages, and I could add or delete the comments that came from the Facebook pictures.
The book came super fast. I love that they gave so many paper options, and add a frame to the pictures if you want. I ended up getting the hard back book, but they have books starting at just $10.95. I am definitely thinking about ordering more for the family for Christmas gifts! The book just looks so professional!
