Baby Dust Book

Yes, I finally managed to get my book posted. I was only a month later than I thought I would be. I have been a little busy!

I first want to say THANK YOU! To everyone who took the time to do a page for me. I truely appreciate each and everyone. My original goal was to have 12 - 15. I sent out 34 pages total!!! I could not believe the response I got, so thank you. They still trickle in a few each week. I will do an updated post in the future for those pages I do not have yet. If you have not sent it back yet, please don't worry I enjoy getting a few new little bits of inspration each week! I currently have back 25.

Before I reveal my book, first a few stats on my book.

  • I sent out 34 pages total, 25 have made their way back to me.
  • Of the 25 I have received 23 are from women and 2 from men
  • 18 are from mothers
  • 9 have struggled with infertility or miscarriage
  • The mom with the most kids - 8 (I have no idea how she found time to do one!)
  • The mom with the most babies during a single pregnancy - 3 (what a Rock star!)
  • Page from the furthest away - Tasmania, Australia
  • Page closest to me - right next door
  • 12 are Art Friends from AFA
  • 11 of you told me you were not artistic or creative, I don't BELIEVE IT!!!!

So without further ado, I give you my Baby Dust Book!

I would like to note that the backs of these pages are also incredible. Some have more quotes on them and some having touching messages from the artists. I wish I could have shown you the backs of each one as well!

Thank you to each and everyone of you who made a page for me. This book turned out better than I ever could have imagined. I will do another post on the last 8 pages once they have all arrived, so you can see each and every one!

The pages are even more beautiful in person. I feel blessed that I was able to see it. Also, your blog is actually letting me comment?!?

Thanks for sharing your book - the pages are great and I love all the little facts you gave about the "artists". I've never been called a Rock Star before - haha - I loved that!
