A book of notes for the Gregory's birthday

About a month and a half ago, I came across this post on the blog oh, hello friend (which has become one of my new favorite blogs, just fyi) and completely fell in love with the idea of doing a similar thing for Greg's birthday. The problem was... I had no idea where to even start. So I decided to contact Danni, the creator of oh, hello friend, to ask if she would be willing to assist me.

I first contacted her just to tell her how much I loved her idea and if she might be willing to create a blank book for me so I could do a similar project. Not only was she willing to do a book for me, but she so generously offered to put blank notes, etc. in the book that I could fill out. (For those of you who know me well, you know that I am not the most crafty person in the world, so when Danni offered to do this for me, I was so grateful and excited.) Her pricing was quite a deal, and she was really wonderful to work with throughout the entire creation process.

The end result turned out better than I could have imagined. As I said above, Danni was lovely to work with and packaged the book with so much creativity and care.

Danni, thanks again for helping me out and for being so amazing to work with. Greg loves his book of notes!

P.S. Please visit oh, hello friend's etsy shop. It is lovely and I pretty much want to own every item.

isn't this packaging delightful?

because my photography skills don't do this book justice, here is one of the images Danni captured of the book;
