  1. I love snapfish’s lay-flat photo books! I’m also working on Christmas gift wall calendars for the grandparents and Aunt and Uncles.

  2. I’d like to make my mom a calendar. My husband is in the military and so we do not live near family. My mom would love to have a picture of her grand-baby’s every month on the calendar!
