What an awesome giveaway! My book would be for my almost year old son, documenting his first year of life. I would love to have something like that for him to look back over as he gets older.

This is my all time favorite give away! Mine a collection of my photos and some of the more interesting bits of my thesis work (

My grandmother died recently at 98 and I collected all of her photographs. I would make a family tree starting with my daughters' Great Great Grandparents and ending with my daughters.

By Blogger Brooke, at 1/18/2008 5:57 AM  

I participate in a daily word prompt photo blog. I take these fab and not so fab picture and post them. I alway add a blurp about it but there is always a back story about it. I also usually take 5-6 different images for one word and photo edit them all. I would make the book all about my HSMS from last year. It would be a show-off of all my pictures. I would show my growth in the area of photography.

By Blogger Shannon, at 1/18/2008 6:02 AM  

My daughter is 3 and starting a school readiness program this year so I would write a book about her going to school and how much fun it will be... This way it will help her get used to the idea of going before she actually does. Maybe help her get excited for it instead of scared.

Great giveaway modmom!!

By Blogger MANDUH, at 1/18/2008 6:43 AM  

I love Blurb! I would love to make a book out of my blog which is like a journal of my daughter's first year (and of my first year as a mom!). I love posting pictures and seeing her change and have that in a book would be amazing! Thanks!

anne at cronuschronicles dot com

By Anonymous Anne, at 1/18/2008 8:14 AM  

I would do one of two things.
1. Make a collection of my Dad's sketches and photos of his artwork. He is the most amazing artist and I'd love to have that preserved for my children to have as they get older.

2. I'd love to make a "5 Years of the Adcock Family" book. Detailing my wedding to my wonderful husband and then the birth of our son up to the "surprise" trip Hubby has planned for me to celebrate our 5th Anniversary.

If I don't win, I might have to do both before Christmas for presents. :)

By Anonymous Beth, at 1/18/2008 8:15 AM

So many possibilities. I think I would first do a "Year in the Life" with photographs and stories from my blog.

By Anonymous Cathy, at 1/18/2008 8:35 AM  

Great giveaway! I've seen one of the Blurb books and they're awesome. I have two possibilities for what I'd do a book of -- either the series I've started this year on my blog, which a Year of Food in photographs, or a book devoted to my only nephew's second year of life. I suspect the latter choice would win out. ;)


By Blogger Fresh Girl, at 1/18/2008 8:40 AM  

My third and final child - my only son - is 3 months old and already he has less as far as photo albums/scrapbooks I'd definitely use it to document his first year. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

Maybe about my life story, about my parents and how I meet the love of my life!

By Blogger Hedi, at 1/18/2008 9:29 AM  

I would hand the camera to my 4 year old daughter and let her take pictures of her favorite things. I would have her tell me about them and why she loves them.

I've been on a year-long quest to have all my family measure and write down their "secret" recipes so that we can create a family cookbook. I'm just about ready to start compiling all the recipes and pictures. This giveaway couldn't have come at a better time! Keeping my fingers crossed.

So fabulous! I am torn between wanting to do a photo mashup of my three little monkeys, and doing a children's book about some aspect of character education or science fiction for the 4-8 year old market. I am a SAHM taking a hiatus from teaching Kindergarten and found that there were not enough good books in those areas. Thanks for the contest!

I have literally DREAMED about surprising my husband with a book of his blog. We were engaged, married, bought a house and had a baby in less than a year and half, start to finish. He's kept a blog to keep our families updated, and it's AMAZING. I'd love love love to give him a book of it!


By OpenID dinahk2, at 1/18/2008 8:21 PM  

Our blog began the day we brought our adopted baby girl home last March. Most of our posts have been about our experiences with adoption and parenthood. As we near her first birthday, I've been thinking of having the blog printed, and then continue to do that annually.

By Blogger Becca, at 1/18/2008 8:21 PM

Oh my heart is actually pounding so hard about this giveaway. I SOOO need this one.

My baby girl was born 9 weeks early and was in the NICU for 7 weeks due to many many complications with her prematurity. I started a blog (a private one) to help friends and family stay informed of her progress. It became like therapy for me. I have wanted to transform it into a scrapbook for her, but had no clue how to. I would be BEYOND blessed to win this one! THANK you for such a fabulous giveaway!!

By Blogger russandkatie, at 1/19/2008 8:21 AM  

I would love to create a book of my daughters first 2 years of life. That would be an awesome gift for her!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/19/2008 8:30 AM  

Of course my first thought was my kids!! But, I have 3 and being the obsessive photographer I am...there is way too many photos. Plus I always wanted to do individuals for when they were older to show their children.
So, I have a suitcase full of ancestors I am wanting to put in a book that will be kept by the matriarch of the family and past on through the generations. Oh, I could hope anyway!! My Dad and Step mom were just about to through them all in the dump when I grabbed it and brought it home with me.
Imagine the stories, family trees, and fabulous photos of ancestors from 100 years or more ago all in one place. That would be awesome.
Awesome contest. Think I want one anyway!

I would love to make a book that would be "the one" to grab in case of a family emergency (fire, flood, etc.) I have so many scrapbooks that it would be impossible to save them all. I would love to have one book full of pictures of my husband & I growing up, getting married and having our big book about our life.


By Blogger Nick and Megan...and Chelsea too!, at 1/19/2008 10:18 AM  

I've been wanting to make one of these for so long, but I haven't made the jump yet. I'd definitely do it for FREE though! I'd either make a wedding album because I got married in April, or I'd make a book with photos of all my siblings, nieces and nephews and give it as a gift to my mother for Mother's Day!

I think I'd chronicle my mom's crafts (things she's made over the years) and/or collections (she has a large collection of Peruvian photograps and textiles.)

Even if i don't win, I think you've inspired a new project. Thanks.

I've been hosting, for a while now, a limited edition in my blog, with vintage postcards I find in flea markets and antique shops, illustrated with written shortstories, by several young writers.

Each story, tells us about the possible life of the person portraied in the postcard. An imaginary life that they could have had.

My book would be about these postcards and shortstories, compiled together, because they are so wonderfully written that they deserve to be published! And I would love to share these vintage cards with everyone!


By Blogger alice, at 1/20/2008 8:44 AM  

would love to have one of these - we are expecting our first grandchild tomorrow - so I would suspect that we would be able to fill a book w/ photos fairly fast. :)

My book would be{unplugged} - this was our blog for the first two years of our daughter's life - we switched to a new blog platform last fall so I've been wanting to find a way to archive her blog in a hard copy format as it is her baby book, in essence, and what better way than a high quality coffee table book from BLURB! Sweet!!

By Blogger Wired Wilsons, at 1/20/2008 1:58 PM  

There are so many cool comments here I almost wonder if I should go for it - although I would LOVE to put together a book of so many topics - I am focused right now on starting to build my photography portfollio and think I would be tempted to use it for that -- we also are currently working on gathering pictures for my in-law's 50th wedding anniversary - how do you fit 50 wonderful years of memories into one book??? Thanks for all the great giveaways...

I'd have to decide between a recipe book (I'm dying to bind all of my recipes) and a book of remembrance depicting the life of my great grandmother or even my family history. It would be fun either way!

By Blogger Meg, at 1/20/2008 4:24 PM  

Wow! The possibilities are endless as I have a lot of books I plan to write. I choose a book that I'll write from my heart to my 2 beautiful daughters (ages 16 and almost 21). It's not the usual mom-to-daughter/s book as I'm a non-custodial mom. It has been a difficult road and I need to document my story for them so they will know how we came to this place in our lives. I cannot publish it now as they are still too young to fully understand, so I would write it and publish it and save it for them when they are mature enough to understand. If I'm not being greedy, I'd love to win 2 so I could give 1 to each daughter and they won't have to fight each other over who gets it!

This is a great give-away!

By Blogger Spirited Strider, at 1/20/2008 4:29 PM

I would write a beautiful Cinderella love story of my husband and my relationship. This book would be worthy of the generations to come to read and remember how much their mom/dad, grandma/grandpa etc loved each other.

My poor kids. I'm repeating history by not doing baby books for them. I just don't have the time to do all that cutting and gluing! I want a coffee table book of my beautiful babes. Muchas gracias.
