Tackle it Tuesday – Tackling Photo Books

Tackle It Tuesday

Jennifer here with another fabulous tackle Janice wrote a long time ago, but never published. I found it in our archived drafts.

The funny thing is that these days Janice makes photo books ALL the time for her photography clients. You can see some of her client photos on local Vancouver Photography business website.

Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to share your tackle posts in the linky below.

I DID IT! I finally did it!

I have a problem finishing tasks. Especially tasks that are for myself and don’t have a set deadline.

And it drives me crazy.

You see, I love taking photos of my children. And I love staring at their adorable faces in my favorite shots even more.

I used to be a scrapbooker. Before I started blogging. Blogging killed the scrapbooking star.

But now the only place my photos live is online. The rest of the time they are trapped in hard drives, unseen and desperately missed.

Just before Olivia was born, we painted the inside of our house. I refused to put the artwork back up because I was determined to cover my walls with photos of my children.

Olivia will be in 1st grade this year and my walls are still bare.

SO, this summer I am determined to tackle my photo developing procrastination!

I will print, frame and hang photos. (Watch out — I promise you and myself that I will tackle my walls very soon!)

But this weekend, I began to tackle making PHOTO BOOKS!

Tackle it Tuesday - Blurb BookSmart

I have never ordered a photo book! I have started them. But I have never finished and ordered one.

Something urgent always comes up and I don’t get it finished. Time passes and I forget my log in. And it all disappears…

This weekend, I started my book making quest by simply hitting ‘create books’ on Flickr. That took me to Snapfish and I quickly made a couple books using their autofill and a few edits. It was addictively simple.

But I wanted more.

I wanted to conquer Blurb.

Last month I had made an account, downloaded the software and uploaded some photos. BUT, par for the course, I didn’t finish it.

Well, today is the day that I END that procrastination. The day I put my anaylisis paraylisis behind me. I will not be trapped by my perfectionism. I do not need to record my children’s entire lives in my first book.

I can just do a book. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be complete. It just has to be.

And it is.

It is done.

Check it out.
