I'm sure this has happened to you... you get the box of old family photos out, start leafing through them, and come to one that is an old favorite - but, it's been damaged! Discolored, bent, cracked, etc. It makes your heart sick! Well, now those photos can be restored to their original shape, and you don't have to pay a fortune to have it done, either! My son, Grant Herron, is an expert at Photo Restoration. It doesn't matter where you are located - you don't have to send your precious pictures through the mail. Just scan them, and email them to Grant. He'll fix them and email the restored photos back to you! It's as easy as that.

The cost right now is $15 per photo restoration. You'll have to look far and wide to find someone else who will work on your photos for less than that. It's a real bargain!

Here are a few of the photos he has restored...

To see more samples, look on the sidebar of this blog.

Cherish Bound Black Friday Publishing Specials

I'm furiously trying to finish several book projects, plus help my customers to do the same, because...

in 2 days, it's Black Friday!!!!! What does that mean at Cherish Bound?! Publishing discounts galore!

This Friday, if you submit books for publishing at Cherish Bound, you'll be eligible for the following discounts:

EVERY book gets hardbinding for 1/2 price - that's just $8.50 for a hardbinding upgrade instead of $17! Hardbinding makes your book so much nicer, and it's guaranteed for LIFE when it's hardbound!

If you buy 3 books at regular price, you'll get a 4th book for 1/2 price. This is HUGE! Make one beautiful book for your family - and then get copies for everyone... what could be easier? And, it doesn't even need to be 4 copies of the same book - just buy any 3 books, and get the 4th one 1/2 price.

If you are making any of the Cherish Bound Designer series books, you'll be happy to know that CB is waiving the $12 designer fee! You won't have to pay the extra fee to be able to get one of these beautiful, professionally designed books! These are so easy to make - they are designed for you, so just drop your pictures into place and type some text, and voila - a finished book in just minutes!

Last special - if your cart charges are $150 or more, you'll get a free journal from Cherish Bound. Choose from Gratitude (purple), Favorites (green), Traditions (orange), and Heritage (Blue). Cart charges, meaning AFTER coupons, tax, and shipping. So, if you want to take advantage of this special, don't use your coupons - save them for another time.

So, that's the deal - 4 exciting publishing discounts on Black Friday only. It is TOTALLY worth sitting your butt down right now and making a book, right?!

Have fun creating.

An announcement & Christmas Idea - CALENDARS

Exciting news at Cherish Bound...

Cherish Bound now has a blog! This blog just went public, so there's not too much there right now, but I'm sure there will be in the near future. They've started posting, so go check it out.


REMINDER: Christmas is coming fast! Are you working on those book gifts? I hope so. There is nothing that is more satisfying than watching someone open a beautiful personal story book on Christmas Day (or any other time, for that matter!). I hope you'll give the gift of story this Christmas season.

Calendars are another great way to share your story with others. I've been working on calendars for family members and friends, and at Cherish Bound it's so easy. Just upload 12-15 pictures, type in a caption or quote under each picture, and fill in all of those birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Submit, and get your beautiful spiral bound calendars back in time for Christmas. Here are some pictures from one of the calendars I've done this season...

I chose to put quotes about family and friends in my calendars instead of captions. The quotes I found were so great! Here are just a few ideas...

"It's funny that those things your kids did that got on your nerves seem so cute when your grandchildren do them."

"The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family." -Thomas Jefferson

"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories." -George Eliot

And, probably my favorite....
"The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to." -Dodie Smith (haha!)

Be creative with your calendars - Each of the monthly spreads in the Family calendar is a different color - match your text color to the background.
Put a shadow behind the pictures - it makes the pic POP from the page. Be aware of the picture you are putting on each page - match clothing and other things to the background color.

Cherish Bound has 3 different calendars for 2010. The one above is the Family calendar. We also offer Baby Boy and Baby Girl calendars (blue and pink respectively). Each of these calendars has room for a picture and text, plus the capability to fill in each different day on the monthly calendars. Plus, as a nice bonus, each page has several questions to get your family talking, or to help you remember to record important events.

Let me know if you need help starting one of these beautiful calendars.

A Few Announcements...

I'm going to be adding a page especially for my downline - my team members. I'll post updates, information, pictures, etc. for them there. Look for that link on the sidebar in a few days.

For now, let me say that I so proud of one of my team members, Jamie! She now holds the top 2 spots in the company for personal sales. Way to go, Jamie! Keep working hard.

Just a reminder to all of my customers... Cherish Bound usually has a pretty sweet publishing special on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving), so make sure you have your Christmas books done so you can push the submit button that day! If anyone needs help - you know how to find me. I'd be happy to come and help you finish your Christmas gifts.

Keep telling your stories!
