    I'm totally ordering one (or more) for Gwen - she loves books, and these board books are the only thing that she can't rip or chew to shreds. YAY! CONGRATULATIONS!

      Oooh Good Luck on your new venture Christine ~ I'm sure it will be a smashing success, and will def. keep these in mind when I need to buy baby gifts or of course if and when FI and I decide to become preggers.

      And yep Sarah has done it again ~ fabulous logos!!!!

        Christine, how would the gift cert's work? Like I would pay you for a book, but the person I give the gift cert to would send you the photos they want in the book? Do they also provide the wording, or do you make up the stories? I know I've said it before, but I love this idea and am sad that my niece and nephew are too old for it.

        Hmmm, that brings up another question - what is the age that kids would use board books? I don't have kids, so I am not really sure. Is it like 0-3 years or something?

            Carly, I can write the story or if someone has something specific in mind I can work with them on a story.
            Gift Certificates would be exactly what you described, you would pay for whatever size book and then I would either send you or the person a certificate.

            I would imagine that older children like up to 4 or 5 would still use them since they are photos of themselves and family, but would prefer the 8x8 size.

              this is very cool. DH and i are 4 hours away from our nephew (who is making his big debut to the world TOMORROW!!!) so once he gets a little older i'd love to buy one so he remembers us!
