At the end of each year I have had all my blogs gathered together and published in book form. Here is this year's book.
I have opened the pages so you can see how nicely the blogs have reproduced. There are just over 60 pages -- not as many as I have had some years. I use Blogs2Print as the publisher and this one cost me about $40.
Here are all my books since I began blogging in January 2007. It's so much fun having all this work in print. I don't know if my boys will be interested in them, but it's rather like having an illustrated diary. Many of my photographs as well as a lot of my art work is in them. The only negative thing I think about these books is that the photographs are rather small, but perhaps they were trying to keep the cost down by not using so many pages.
While I'm at the letter B, I'm also posting one of my latest pieces of art work.
It is obviously a butterfly but it's a little different from the usual because I copied it from a beautiful black velvet shawl that was given to me. It has lovely embroidered flowers and butterflies all done in knot stitches which I have tried to reproduce by small circles. The black background did not reproduce well with the Prisma colored pencils.
This is a picture of one of the flowers to show the style of embroidery.
This is my entry for ABC WEDNESDAY. We are in our 16th round and at the letter B. Big thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt and Roger Owen Green for keeping this project going. To see many more entries for the letter B, please click HERE
