Remember way back when I was looking for ideas for a church alphabet book? I thought you all might want a peek at it. You can only view the beginning, but you'll get the idea. That's my Henry being baptized on the "B" page!


Check it out: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/321886/f23ae967c327c9e68f8549844dc6aad1


(Ignore the sales info. I had to offer it for sale to be able to show it to you!)

Polly I DO remember - and I love the finished product!! You've given me an idea ;-) Some of you may know of my love for digital (computer) crafting. That includes secular and religious things. Whenever possible I love being able to create religious/Catholic/Christian things for use in my parish.....many of these I don't charge anything. The couple of things in progress are "tea bag envelopes" with a Scripture message on them, that will be for each of the women participating in our upcoming annual Women's Day of Spirituality. There are four different designs of teabag envelopes.

Jeanne,


Thanks! The book has been published. It was a Christmas gift. I did a book on our Disney trip with that software, but that's it. It is pretty easy to use.

I should have thought to autograph it! LOL!


So, have you figure out sour cream yet? I've been curious about that ever since you posted. Eating food from within 100 miles would be quite a challenge here unless I was willing to go without fresh food for many months -- but we've got dairy covered here in Wisconsin!

Karen,


This is a regular book. You can choose soft or hard cover, and with hard cover you can choose with or without a book jacket. There are other book publishing companies out there, and perhaps one makes board books. I used this one for our Disney trip and found it easy to use and pretty reasonable, so I stuck with it. They only recently started offering hard cover with

It was really very easy Sofia -- especially with everyone here brainstorming words for me. I think I'll revise it and make one for Henry.


BTW, I can get in touch with you through your profile, right? My email program tanked, and I lost loads of addresses.

Ruth, I considered making some non-personalized ones and offering them to the women's guild to sell in its gift shop. I think they're great baptism gifts. But I don't think the price point makes sense. Maybe with your machine it would make more sense.
