Amazing Website #1: Mixbook.com I really wish I'd found this website while we were planning our wedding, or when I was making Ainslie's birth announcement but oh, ho ho am I going to make up for lost time now! It's the only website I've ever found that prints completely customizable stationery at a super reasonable price. I found it while looking for invitations for my sister-in-law Tina's baby shower and oh boy. I'm in love. Just wait until Christmas next year. Or come to think of it, I might have to make up a holiday just so I can make cards to send. Anyone fancy a resurrection of Farch from the good 'ol college days?
Amazing Website #2: Blog2Print. Just when I'd started thinking that I should probably print out this blog before some catastrophic Internet freak-out ruins the last three years of my work, I found Blog2Print. For the low, low price of $151.96 I could have my entire 350+ page blog turned into a book. First of all, holy cow I wrote over 350 pages worth of stuff? Second, that's less than 50 cents a page, so it's not so bad. Third, that's still too much for me to do it but I found a way to make it work! "...Just Alaska" wasn't always "...Just Alaska", so I think I'll print out different (smaller and therefore cheaper) volumes based on the blog's different titles as I can afford them. It makes me really happy to think of having them on our bookshelf and Ainslie wandering in some day asking what they are. I'm excited to be able to show her that I actually have had a pretty interesting life.
