I’m happy to report that I finally finished our digital 2014 Project Life family album. I had two weeks left when we moved, and it was just put on the back burner until I realized that 2015 is more than halfway over! You would think I would have finished sooner, but, sometimes I make projects much bigger in my mind than they are and then drag it out.
Like last year, I sent my book off to Blurb. I went with their 12×12 photo album and it came out to 108 pages. I also skipped the dust jacket, and went with the direct printing on the cover and upgraded the paper. Total cost: $127.11
I could have waited longer and used a larger coupon code, but at this point I was ready to be finished with the project. Last year’s book I ordered at $114.86, so it wasn’t that much of a price difference for me to want to wait to check on it everyday for a code. (See my post on How To Use Your Time Wisely.)
I received the book last week and was so excited to open it…and discovered the last 10 pages were missing and the back cover was blank.
I contacted customer service and they worked with me to give me a replacement book, which should be here soon. I think their system didn’t upload the rest of the images while it still let me go ahead and place the order (and I placed it thinking it finished uploading because the “wait” page cleared and let me through). Lesson learned: Quadruple-check everything to make sure it’s actually uploaded before clicking the “Buy” button.
I’m pleased with Blurb’s customer service, and I will continue to recommend them to my friends.
Here’s our cover:
I’m really pleased to have another year done. One of these days I’d like to have everything all finished and put together beautifully, but for now, let’s move on to the next project! 😉
