Hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! My first Mother’s Day as a mom was lovely. My husband, PhotoBookBaby and I went out for yummy brunch and on the way home we made a stop at a local garden store. I picked up a couple spider-like Tillandsia air plants. For some reason I love strange looking plants – the more alien looking the better!
I hoped to get this post out earlier, but with all the family events this past weekend, I got a bit behind. Anyways, on to the winners!
The winners were drawn at random, but just wanted to share the winning entrants’ plans for their photo books if they were to win:
- I love customizations, too! I look forward to checking out the new software. I’ve always got a few books in the half-planned stage. Right now, one thing I want to do is make a very specific book of each of my kids. My husband restored an old commercial apple press, and the book for that was so cool I thought it would be fun to do a single-subject book for each of the kids. Nate’s into rocketry and I have tons of pictures of him with the rockets he builds and launches…
- If I win a Snap MyLife Creations Prize, I will use it to create a very special Wedding Album – one which has been waiting a very, very long time to be made: last month, I finally married my high school sweetheart and the love of my life – 29 years to the day from when we had originally planned to be wed. After high school, while he was in Navy training and I was in college, something very traumatic happened, and I (18 and completely unequipped) made the horrible mistake of breaking up with him. Yet, in the decades between, we never lost touch and always remained the best of friends – through marriages, children, heartbreak, and happiness. However, it wasn’t until last year that I learned his true feelings, when he looked across a table and into my eyes, and told me that he had always loved me and always would. My wedding ring now holds the original diamond that was in my engagement ring so long ago; and his is made, in part, from the gold from that same ring. It is a fairytale that I never imagined would really happen, and one he never gave up hope in. I cannot wait to tell our story in book form, and share it with our family and friends.
- If I won it would be hard to choose what project to do. I have so many! I really need to do one of my 4 year-old grandson for my daughter. I have watched him part-time since he was born and I know that I have photos she hasn’t seen.
- I have taken a lot of pictures on my trips to various places throughout the years. I always wanted to put them together and print them into a coffee table book. If I win, this is what I will do – a portfolio of all my favorite photos in all my travels.
Lots of great books in the works!
