The newest addition to my children's book collection

I make children's books as a hobby.  Of course I work a full-time job, but I would love for my full-time work to be making these books.  It's not really feasible right now, but I could really fill up 40 hours plus doing this if I didn't have a job. LOL  Anyway I'm making this personalized book for a girl at work for her baby.  I didn't get her a baby present, so Im trying to make it up to her.  The book is about self-esteem and a princess being able to do anything she wants to do.  It's really short, but I hope she likes it :)!

Very cool.  If you have some good ideas, check out http://www.kickstarter.com/

Its a website where you can pitch your ideas for a product or invention and get money to get it started before ever making one.  We found out about it from a guy who created a wooden catapult and was asking $5k to fund his project. He ended up raising over $20k and having 600 pre-orders before he ever went into production. May be a good place for your book ideas.

Very cool. I'm sure she'll love it. I paid to have ds's name put in a Disney book, he thought it was the best thing in the world to find his name in a book.

What a great idea! Where do you get the binding done?  Do you do it free hand or use a program?

I would love to have the time to do that. I've been wanting to make my kids a children's book for a long time. That's awesome that you've made it a hobby!
