It's finished!!! I started taking pictures for this book in April and planned on finishing for O's birthday in July. I worked on it and thought I'd finish it in August. Then I put it down and didn't pick it back up until Sunday. I'm so happy to be finished with it, and O loves it! Yay!!!!


  1. I love this idea so much, a book binder is on my wish list. I can't remember if you siad you got someone to do this at their work or if you had one, let me know if you know of a good one :) Also if you don't mind me asking is their a trick to punching through the lminate with a book binder? Thanks!

  2. What size book did you use for this?

    The doctor at Obed's 15-month says he needs to learn to recognize parts of the body, so I'm thinking about taking the opportunity with the grandparents here over Thanksgiving to get pictures of lots of people's "hands" "feet" etc. And then making a page of each of them to go over with him.

  3. i love it i wonder how much it would cost to get stuff binded at staples!

  4. rainbowmummy- I usually get Elliott to bind my books at his dad's office, but this time his dad brought his extra binder for us to borrow! I was so excited! I've got to make lots of books while I have it. Elliott had a really hard time binding the sticker book that I made a few months ago because it was laminated. He used an electric binder then. The binder I have now is a manual binder. I punched the holes, laminated the pages, then punched them again. However, next time I'm going to try laminating them first then just punching the holes once because I think the manual binder might can do it. We'll see...

    my boaz's ruth- I used 8 x 8 cardstock, and I cut the scrapbook paper to the fit. A body parts book sounds like fun!

    Shannon- Probably not too much :) Let me know if you make one. I'd love to see it!
