A shift in direction...

I have to admit, I have taken somewhat of a shift on my current project. I decided that instead of working on the baby book, I needed to work on a pregnancy book. :) I have planned to do this for a while now and decided since I am finally at the halfway mark in my own pregnancy. I really needed to get it finished! :) So, here are a few teasers to wet your appetite with. It is meant to match the baby book, because I intend to sell these seperate and as a set.

I have just uploaded all the pages to lulu publishing, and am in the process of trying to figure the whole process out. Generally when I have made a baby book, I have printed it myself and then taken it in to get spiral bound and the covers laminated. But, I recently began searching the internet for other options. lulu seems to be just what I need, if I can figure the binding and cover options out. Has anyone reading this used lulu? What was your experience? Or maybe you have another suggestion for me to try out?
Currently the book is about 24 pages, 12 front and back. I think I would prefer it to be spiral bound since it makes writing easier then with a hardbound book. What do you think?
On a different note, I also finished my first silhouette titled "we are shaped by our thoughts." Yet one more project I can cross of my list of things to finish! :)
