Two beautiful additions to our library

Just sharing a couple of lovely items that arrived in the post last week…

These photobooks were created and printed through Photobox which I had won courtesy of a giveaway hosted by Eva at The Multitasking Mummy (thanks, Eva!). It actually took quite a long time to put together as it was a massive project to compile all my digital photos scattered everywhere and arrange them into beautiful and meaningful collages (especially due to the perfectionist streak in me).

Thanks to the generosity of the people at Photobox, I was able to put together not just one, but two photobooks...

The first one is a compilation of photos of our family and extended family members which I arranged it into a story book format and titled it ‘Our Family’. It’s been lovely to be able to sit down with Nathan and Grace and pore through photos of grandma, grandpa, and all their uncles and aunties who live far away and talk about them together.

The second one is actually a children’s book written by my dear friend, Irene. Her book, ‘God Counts’, is available to download for free in PDF format here, where she also shares the story of how she came to write the book. Initially I had planned to print it out and bind myself at Officeworks or a print shop. But then I had a sudden idea to use some of my Photobox credits to turn it into high quality physical book.

We are so loving these new additions to our little library!
