So, I got the "history" blog all in a word document and formatted to print on 6x6 pieces of paper to put in an 8x8 scrapbook. I called my scrapbooking genius friend and asked about preserving the printed information. She informed me I'd really need buffered paper to keep the ink in place for years and years and said "why don't you just put it on CD?!"
Well my husband also said "why would you..... never mind, do what you like", in his way to give me an idea, but knew I had my mind set and knew I wouldn't listen anyway. But between the two of them it got me thinking. I looked at the document... 56 pages! Ok so what if I make the font smaller?... 40 pages. YIKES! That's a lot of buffered card stock!
Now the "history" (where we started up until IUI #2) is formatted for regular letter size paper, saved and when I have a moment, will be converted to a PDF at work. Then the PDF will be burned to a CD and for the crafty part, I'll make a label and CD cover for the case. This way I will not have to use up all my ink and paper, and I won't have to worry about something being spilled on the pages or it fading. Now lets just hope Adobe Reader still exists whenever I want to look at the CD... I'm sure it will... right?
