Mom Masters Mixbook Photo Books

Brother Bob's BOOK
My mother is 76 years old and a tax accountant. She is not creative and not very computer savvy (except with taxes). I suggested she clear her closets of hundreds of baby and childhood photos by making photo memory albums for each of her seven children for Christmas gifts.
After explaining the software to her, she tentatively began with my oldest sister. She included photos, decorative stickers from Mixbook and personal text. By the time she began the youngest, she was a wiz! Working all hours...having a ball.
Mom is also chronically ill. When the siblings saw their books, individually themed and specially created... by Mom...they cried. Mom was even sending changes a day after we ordered the books! They were all included and the books impressed even me, a graphic designer. Besides that they had excellent 'snap to' templates which saved time placing photos, they printed and shipped quickly and had sales on everything.
I chose Mixbook.com for its prices, but it proved to be state-of-the-art. Mom and I had no complaints!
