Here we go!

I've been thinking about setting up a blog for some time but like most things, thinking about it and doing it are two different things. And with most technology, although in the end the outcome is beautiful, great and amazing... there is definitely a learning curve!

I have found this out more than ever with my new business through Heritage Makers. I am so excited about this business and the products that are the end result are so cool! But yes, there is a learning curve! The first project I took on was huge. A book for my dad and his siblings for Christmas. I started the last week in October and rallied my wonderful cousins together who all then went out and interviewed their parent and gathered photos of their life. A month and a half later and 24 hours before the deadline to get it submitted to be published in order to get it for Christmas, I had all the stories from the cousins and went to work making the book. Luckily I had spent some time watching the training videos about the tricks of the trade and I was able to get it put together in time and it was a fun Christmas gift to give.

I'm holding an event called a Digi-Crop on Monday, January 18th at Borders Books in Bozeman in the coffee shop from 6-9 and will be sharing some of the cool tips I learned in order to make your storybooking more unique and easy to put together. Some of my friends and clients have asked specific questions and I will be going over those too.

For Hillary W - I now know how to make circular pictures and how to make all photos ones you can swap out.

For Keri J - I now know how to select multiple items to copy or transfer to other parts of the book.

Looking forward to sharing!
