There is no hiding that I am obsessed with instagram. I love seeing everyone’s pictures that I follow and even more so, I love taking pictures myself. Since Rowan was born, we’ve taken a lot of photos with our dslr, but the majority of the pictures are from our phones. Our iphones are always right there to capture the little moments.
I have always wondered what to do with all these photos because they mean so much to me. Then I found out that Blurb created an instagram book. It’s this perfectly shaped little book, that allows you to pull pictures straight from your instagram account. I had already started making one for Rowan for her 1st birthday when Blurb contacted me. I have loved blurb for a long time. I first used them about 3 years ago. I made a book from my old livejournal for kev. It was all the posts about when we lived in Hawaii. It is one of our most treasured keepsakes.
I filled our little instagram book with pictures of Rowan from her very first day here, till her first birthday. It turned out to be 160 pages! We named the book “Little Cheetah: Year One.” I hope I can make one for her every year. How cool, right?
Rowan loves the book so much. We can read it to her like a little storybook. There are so many memories with each picture. I like to tell her about where we were, what we were doing, etc… Her favorite thing is photos, so a whole book of photos of Dada, Mama and her is her favorite thing ever!
I’m hooked! I already have plans to make a 2011 recap book at the end of the year. They are so fun to make!
If you are not on instagram- you can see my pictures here if you want.
