Living Social Deal - Spend $35 receive $100 worth of photo products!
Awhile back I found a deal on groupon for the website Picaboo. I don't remember the exact price I paid but it was for $100 worth of products for like $40 or something similar. I planned on making a large photo book of the two years that we spent in Korea. Yes, I would love to scrap book it, but I take a lot of pictures, and honestly, I just don't get around to it. I'm much more of a card maker then a scrapbooker. I do try, but if it was going to happen it wasn't going to be any time soon. So I figured a photo book would be the answer! There's of course other things that you can purchase on Picaboo such as prints, cards, canvas, etc., but the photo book was the answer to my problem.
So I started my photo book and found out real quick that my camera didn't take as nice as photos as I thought it did :/ Luckily, i've gotten a nicer camera since but that doesn't help any photos that I took back then. Either way, I was still going to use them as this was possibly my only two years in Korea. Not to mention Gideon will only be two and three, once.
I also learned, that I had a lot of photos! And while I really wanted to make one book for the two years, I was getting dangerously close to 100 pages for just one years worth of photos. I went ahead and decided to do one book for 2010 and I would keep an eye out for another deal and go back to do 2011 in another book.
The Picaboo website, in general, was fairly easy to navigate. It was time consuming but I also had almost 500 photos in my almost 100 page book. My book was 8.5 x 11in and I was able to pick the picture for the front and back as well. They also have themed options to help you have a creative theme so it all fits together or you can pick any sort of background out of all their themes that you want. You can also use your photos as backgrounds which I also did a lot of. You have choices of soft covers or hard covers (I chose soft which is like a thick glossy picture paper) among other options. Your base price starts with 20 photos and then each individual photo after that is a specific price depending on size and book style.
I don't remember how long it took for me to receive my book but it wasn't an unreasonable amount by any means. I think it is a gorgeous book and I love to have it out when people come over. I will never get that time back and I love that I can share it with people on something other then Facebook.
Now why am I sharing all of this with you? Because Living Social has a deal on it right now! Spend $35 and receive $100 credit to use on the Picaboo website. I of course purchased a deal right away! I'm so excited that I can now finish my second book. Of course, if books aren't your thing you can get a beautiful canvas print or something else even. Multiple things even. It's up to you.
