Blurb book o' fun

Alright, alright, I realize it has been a while since I last posted. Bad monkey! Let me 'splain Lucy...

See, I was feeling very overwhelmed...and then I got sick with bronchitis (Blame my Bronchasaurus! Ha ha! Get it?) which caused some other lovely bacterial things. This is the first day I have felt most like a human being in almost 10 days. What did I feel like before? A slug. A big juicy banana slug actually.

Well while I was coughing up my left lung, I had a conversation with one of my mentors and he wondered if I was just over photography.

Apparently my slight hiatus due to overwhelmedness didn't go unnoticed. And yes I just made up a word.

Ouch! It smarted to hear that! (Although I think he was just giving me a kick in the rear end, it worked.) Fear not, I am not over photography. At all.

Anyhow, I want to share with you something that I created in the past, since I haven't been editing anything from this past month, even though I have a future bouquet of photos for you (Wanna guess what will be coming up on the blog??).

I created a photo book using the awesome company Blurb. The bookmaking software is free, easy to use and the quality is amazing. This is a preview of my first book that I created using some of my personal favorites from my first year of photography. I love looking at this book and seeing the recurring themes in my photography as well as how I have evolved as a photographer.

I have a few copies of this book hanging around, so if you'd like to see this in person (it has the premium paper) or even {gasp} purchase one, let me know.

I'm planning on creating another Blurb book in the late summer. It's so much fun to put together, and I love having a goal to shoot for. Pun intended.

Thanks to my US for giving me a little kick to get me back on track, and to my friends that keep asking me when I'm going to update my blog.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
