I love Smilebox!  My kids and g’kids expect one on their birthdays.  It is very inexpensive to create imaginative cards and slideshows to send as emails to family and friends or post right on your or their Face Book walls.  You can use Smilebox’s music or download your own to add to your creation.  Select one of their templates (according to the event (birthday for example) and the number of photos you wish to add) and then begin building your one of a kind creation.  My kids/grandkids love them (I think!)  Below is a sample Smilebox I made for my son’s birthday.  Sorry, I can’t figure out (yet) how to just post it on here so it is easier to see and click to play.  You can click the link below to view and play it though.

Hi ~ This is the place I’ve lived the past six years. The little “shack” is something I want to fix up and use as a guest house. The views are amazing anywhere you look.

So, for those who have been there, a remembrance, and for those who haven’t, an invitation!
Love,  Mary/Mom

My Publisher Christmas Book

I’ve used this company to make personal, hard-cover books and given these as gifts to my family for mementos of family reunions, my mother’s life and, recently, a photo book for Christmas’ through the years.  (See photo above.)  You can also post your book creation right to your Facebook Wall.

You can add your own photos and set the book up how you want.  It’s easy to use, after the first time, and very high quality.  They offer good sales as well.
