30 Days of Thankful, the project, is now complete. While I started out with the best of intentions to create a traditional album, I ended up doing the entire project digitally and have ordered a 5.5-inch square softcover book from Artifact Uprising. Today, I want to show you how I set up my book files and used the Artifact Uprising interface. I … Read More

Thiry Days of Thankful is now over. Now, let the UNGRATEFUL era commence! Of course, I jest.  The album project is over and the final step of this process was using Artifact Uprising’s online software to build a 5.5 x 5.5 softcover book.

I had planned to do a little every day but so far it hasn’t happened that way. But make no mistake, this is happening. (Have you noticed how that is a saying now? This … Read More

Seven days in November are already gone and so far, I’m feeling pretty thankful. I had a conversation with a friend this week and we were talking about the gratitude backlash. Do you know about this?
