Phew, I have so many things I have been wanting to post about, especially this one. I made what may very well be the best present ever for Senol for Christmas last year!! And I left it way too late so it arrived in early January. Oops! Some how I came across a site called Tiny*Prints (um, does everyone know about this already and I am just way behind?) I think it was when I was a friend of mine had asked about making calenders using photos.
I decided to make it a book of photos of Yashar from the last year. Senol is definitely the sentimental type and has photos of Yashar pinned up all around his desk at work - so I knew I was on to a winner - I was just hoping it would turn out well and that the printing would be good.
I thought it would take a few hours, but, wading through a years worth of photos - especially since I take photos almost everyday was a ridiculously massive project...and choosing was hard! Anyway after many evenings hiding in a corner and telling Senol he wasn't allowed to peek at what I was doing I chose the photos, picked a template (the traveller one), uploaded the photos and made the book! I ended up adding lots of extra pages and had fun playing around with the different backgrounds, because, you know, I'm in to that sort of thing. These are some of my favouite pages...hmm...I had trouble deciding.
I was so excited about how it turned out! It was such good quality, the cover was nice and thick and it was printed just perfectly! Senol loved it!
The plan now is to make one every three months. I think it will be such a beautiful record of Yashar. I just can't believe that you can make things like this, so so cool.
Has anyone else made something using Tiny*Prints? How did it turn out?
ps I got in touch with Tiny*Prints and have now got a little banner in the side bar on the right with a code to get a discount with them if you are interested. Just click on the banner to visit the site. Yay!
