Create your own book

I've finally settled down to start making Jake his own personalized book. No, not an official baby book (yet), just his own children's book which I think he's going to get a kick out of. As I've mentioned before, these personalized projects are always the hardest to start...if someone hired me to do it for them, no problem, I'd have it finished in a week. But for Jake? Well, we'll see...! But, since this one is finite, and I'm not aiming for perfection, just fun, I think I'll have it finished soon enough.

In the meantime, for those of you who don't want to start your own children's book from scratch, here a couple cute kits I found at Kate's Paperie. They're accordion style books, and include removable stickers to get you started.

OK, wish me luck, I'm going to go start my new book: Where are Jake's Toes?

These look so cute. They look like something that could be for me, too, since I never did any baby books for my kids. All those maddening fill-in-the-blank questions drove me crazy. Finally, I just took a tip from someone to just jot down funny or memorable moments in any notebook and that seems to work. It's just a notebook I keep in the kitchen, but at some point I'd love to transfer it to a nice book.
