After going on several cruises and trips, I don't need any more jewelry or junk to dust., though I try to purchase a Christmas ornament in each place we visit.
This past May, we took a two week tour of Italy. My hubby took around 1000 pics. When we got home, I went to shutterfly and made a GORGEOUS book, complete with narrative and pictures. I shared it online with out of town friends and had a copy printed. It is amazing!! It is absolutely the best souvenir I've ever purchased! It is a coffee table book size (12" x 12") with a hard cover and about 40 pages. You can pick backgrounds, fonts, and pic arrangements. It's very user friendly. Go to the shutterfly website and you will see what I mean.
My friend leaves for her Alaska cruise on Saturday and she plans to make a book about her cruise , too.
Returned from the Tahitian Princess in April and made another book about our cruise to French Polynesia and the Cook Islands. FYI: the pearl prices down there are very high. That being said, I just love my book!
