happy birthday bloggers

I recieved a fab gift for my birthday & thought I'd share it with fellow bloggers as it may be of interest to you as well. I received a published version of my blog... what fun! It's great to be able to flick through my blog posts in a little published book (8.5"x11"). Its a great record of what I've grown and what I've put on my blog (much easier than searching the blog). I can also show it to non-bloggers. Here are a few random pictures...

Happy Birthday!
Thanks for the really great gift (you know who you are).


  1. What a wonderful gift - and a lovely idea. Happy Birthday to you! Sara x

  2. Well, first off..HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! I have seen that link on blogger and I was thinking about doing it. Now I have seen yours, I think I will!

  3. Happy birthday, Kelli. What a great gift, I've seen these before and they look really good.

  4. Happy Birthday, Kelli. That book looks like a great thing to have - I want one now... Trouble is, it would be as big as War and Peace!
    Having a printed version would make me feel a bit more secure too. I never trust Blogger to look after my work - they might lose it!

  5. Happy Birthday, Kelli! I hope your day is full of special things. I love the blog book....your photos look very professional, too.

  6. Hope your birthday was grand! I really enjoy your blog.
