I'm guest blogging over at V and Co. today.  Yeah, I know.  Awesome.  I'm not really sure I'm cool enough to be over there.  Haha.  You can come on over and check it out HERE.

Hi I saw your cute post on V-n-co. I make lots of those books but put them in the little 99 cent plastic photo books. Brilliant idea to sew plastic pages! :) And I just saw you are the girlw/ THE SKINNY blog-:) I follow you on google reader- thanks for sharing! I'm a UT gal myself-living in AZ! :) cute ideas! Glad I found you :)

Love the tutorial. I guess you really *are* cool now!

And I love The Skinny, too. I think that might be something that helps me because I actually gained weight AFTER I had the baby!!! AAARGH!

Katie. Your tutorial is so cute. I for one, am very impressed by your coolness. You should know that Spencer and I watched our favorite movie two nights ago. We thought of you and Ma the whole time.


And Raymond says "hi."

hi Katie! I just saw your tutorial over and V and Co and I was very inspired. I am so glad my sister gave me the heads up and sent me the link!
I like to write books and right now I am in a groove, focusing on children's books/stories. I like to make my own little illustrations and everything on the computer. I am just trying to figure out a way to print my pages. Right now my method consists of me printing all my pages off the colored printer, cutting them all to size and then slipping them into little walmart, plastic photo books. I like this method a lot because its fairly easy and cost effective but I like your method even more because
a) you put cardstock between each page (brilliant! why didn't I think of that before?)
b)Your method of binding the books is even more handmade-makes the book extra special
c) you SEW in the pictures so they can't come out! Right now, one of my biggest concerns concerning my current method is that the pictures (or pages of my book) can fall out if my toddler holds the book upside down.
ANYWAY... this was a very long comment but I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate all that you are sharing and you really have given me some great ideas.
For now, if you'd like to see one of my books, you can check it out at

Have a great day and looking forward to reading more of your posts!
PS I lived in Provo too once upon a time ;)
