I think I mentioned pre-holiday that I had a happy customer service story to tell. Won’t come as much of a surprise that it’s Apple. I made my parents an Apple photo book for Christmas and it went missing. FedEx lost it. After months of scanning old family photos, cropping to the right dimensions, sorting by date, laying out a 50+ pg book, the stupid FedEx guy evidentally delivered it to the wrong address or dumped it in a snowbank and marked it as delivered. Apple sent me another copy, free, the day after I called them, express. Amazing. I love them. They saved Christmas. And they saved me from having a complete frickin nervous breakdown.
I ordered a hard cover book and it’s lovely. I want to make a bunch more. Maybe an annual one of the kids. It was super easy. I didn’t bother with captions or anything fussy, just photos laid out on white background with a black cover. I really don’t want to bother with albums anymore. They’re so bulky and the ones I have are all hodge podge and the kids want to rip the photos out of the sleeves and run off with them. And honestly, in this digital camera age I need something to force me to edit. I can fill a 200 photo album with just three months worth of photos. Maybe this way I can pick just one or two from the pumpkin patch instead of all 50 photos. Kids and pumpkins though.. just so cute.
