Vacation Books

I've accomplished a lot of tasks while waiting for Little Kicker to arrive (I REALLY thought she'd be here by now). I finally finished these 5 vacation books for O that I started almost a year ago. I'm glad to finally cross this off my list! To make the books I used 8 x 8 cardstock and glued a picture to each page. I wrote captions on the computer, printed them, and glued them to the pages. Then I laminated each sheet, cut the extra lamination off, and bound the books together. This was really easy to do, and I don't know why I've let it sit around for so long.


  1. I really like those. I can't believe you are still waiting for Little Kicker!

  2. What a beautiful blog... Thank you for sharing you thoughts I really enjoyed visiting your blog, good luck with little kicker!

  3. Cute! great idea. Thanks ! Best wishes with the new arrival!!

  4. I just started making books for my kids and they LOVE them. They so enjoy having a book all about them. I am working on a book about their grandfather that died 3 years ago so they will have a way to know and remember him.


  5. how did you attach the black spiral binding? I've only seen a machine used to cut the holes and attach it.

    Good luck with Little Kicker. Hopefully she'll be here soon.

  6. I can't believe we are still waiting for the Little Kicker either! She's evidently very comfortable in her current home :)

    Karen- We borrowed a binding machine from Elliott's dad. I don't think you could do it without a machine, but they probably have them at Kinko's or somewhere like that...
