Creating a Mini Photo Memory Book

Today my grandma is celebrating her 89th birthday! She is healthy, and may just live forever -- and I am so thankful for that!

When it comes to Christmas and Birthdays, her philosophy about gift giving is simple: "If I can't eat it, watch it, or plant it, I don't need it." Usually we give her a gift card to her favorite restaurant, but this year I decided to do something a little different.

We all know that as grandparents, and great-grandparents get older their memories start to fade. Not ALL people, but some. To help preserve some of those memories, I put together a memory book for her. My kids helped by giving me quotes about whey they love G.G. (great-grandma), and drew pictures for her. I included memories I have from time spent with her over my 35 years. Just quick thoughts about things I enjoyed doing with her, vacations we went on, and things she taught me.

I put together 89 pages of pictures, memories, drawings, and quotes... one for each year of her life.

It was really simple to do, and honestly you can get as creative (or not) as you want. Here is what you need:

Tutorial: Butipod Wipes Case Cover

What is a Butipod? It is an awesome travel wipes container that zips closed and keeps your wipes moist and ready to use all the time. The fun part is creating custom covers for your Butipod to match or coordinate with your diaper bag. You can also color code your wipes if you have different kinds (ie. Diapering wipes, hand/face wipes, cleaning wipes, etc.)

Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to create your own Butipod cover. I am using the latest version of the Butipod (4.0), but the older 3.0 version of the Butipod will fit in them as well.

Let’s get started.
