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.
