A Book You Should Make & A New Rug


Despite the stress, having a ticket to Alt has definitely had some perks. The last couple months I've had a lot of fun mail days from Alt sponsors. One of my favorites was the free Blurb book I was invited to make. Have you all heard of Blurb? People say the best things about them, and for good reason. I created a book of my family using some of my instagrams photos. It was really easy to use, super fast to make (I probably did mine in about 20 minutes or less), and the end product is absolutely beautiful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, for those of you who wanted to see my new rug from eSaleRugs.


They definitely made a loyal customer out of me. The price was great, they threw in a rug pad, I received it in just a few days, and the quality is freaking awesome. I couldn't be happier. eSaleRugs is the bomb.

Oh, on a completely different note. I don't have this, or really need it, but how great is this Ikea Shoe Cabinet? I think it could solve a lot of the world's problems.

Your rug is beautiful!! And I love that book---I have been wanting to create a book for each year....maybe it is time to actually Start! :)

And can we talk about that shoe cabinet. Um--seriously? My house has NO storage! We have been trying to figure something out. I am buying one today!
Thank you!

That rug is magnificent! You have such great style.
I've been doing Blurb books for our last few vacations. It's great because I can leave them piled on the coffee table for when guests come over and they can browse through them at leisure. Great conversation pieces!

I love blurb books! I make one for my in laws every year for Christmas, since they live so far away. I never thought to use instagram photos. Great idea! I love the one with you on the trampoline! How cute! :) Have so much fun at Alt. Wish I could be there... one of these days I have to make it to a blog conference. Also, love the new rug! Off to check out the site.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

Cashing in my lurker status to say that I impulse purchased a gorgeous rug from esalerugs yesterday morning when I saw this post. It JUST arrived! Yay for SC businesses and super quick shipping to Charleston! I am already in LOVE with the rug and I think we're soul mates. The colors and quality are simply amazing. Thank you for posting your experience or else I never would have taken the plunge!

Hello Joanna,

I really love the template you are using. It's really a cool template, very minimalist and loading is also very fast. I really liked the look of the first template like this. Success always for you. gambar lucu | foto lucu
