Thanks for this review! This is probably the best review about Kiwi crate I’ve read!

Livia Wright Taylor -

I hear such great things about Kiwi Crate. I bet this would be a great gift idea… meaning I ask my parents to subscribe for my daughter’s birthday, even if it’s just for a few months. I hate coming up with ideas on my own and I’d love to just have KC send me all the stuff in one box and have at it!

Amy, Great video..I’m getting ready to do my first Blurb book and this was very helpful. I would like to know if you used the color profiles from Blurb. I know you did yours in B&W so I don’t know if that makes a difference. I do calibrate my monitors and printers with Color Monkey and try to soft proof. I would like your input on this. Thanks

Hi Amy, Can you tell me which font you used when creating your 3rd book with both of your children? I love how it turned out!

Iris and Pupil Game & How The Eye Works – Printables For Kids

There was a short period in Elle’s life where she likes to poke Jay in the eye. This usually happens during meal time when the poor boy is strapped to his high chair. Out of the blue, Elle would walk over to him, stick her finger out and move it towards his eye. She even does a […]
