Kicking Off the School Year with Mixbook!

As the school season starts getting into full swing, we here at Mixbook have noticed teachers using Mixbook photo books in a very cool way.  Paula Naugle, a fourth grade teacher located in New Orleans, recently blogged about how she has created a Mixbook project to record her classroom events throughout the entire school year.  Aviva Dunsiger, a first grade teacher in Canada is also creating an electronic classroom yearbook with her students which can be viewed on her blog.  We salute you for your creative use of technology in the classroom and look forward to seeing more interesting Mixbook projects with your students!

Have you used Mixbook in your classroom or know of any teachers using it in an innovative way? Tell us about it in the comment section below.  We would love to hear from you!

And we get praise from teachers too! Many teachers use Mixbook as a tool to teach their students and to help them process what they’ve learned in the classroom. Here is what they had to say:

“Students simply load the pictures into the page, insert text where they want it and boom! A book is born.” – Patrick H.

Welcome Wedding Bees!

Hi Mixbookers! We just found out that Mrs. Plumeria at Weddingbee wrote a little post about Mixbook.

She says: “This could definitely be a cool way to get some nice books of those candids taken by wedding guests, laid out and compiled with ease… or a group memoir of a bachelorette night or bridal shower… or even a personalized bridesmaid’s gift. I personally love to scrapbook together with those of my friends that do — and now this is even possible online. Who woulda thunk? ;-)

You can read more here: Thanks Mrs. Plumeria, we’re glad you love Mixbook as much as we do!

P.S. And yes, wedding bees, our books really do start at $9.99 until July 31. Get Yours Now!

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s my first Mixbook!

Remember when it was actually fun and exciting to get a package in the mail because it just didn’t happen that often? Ah, those good ol’ days… Well, times have changed and nowadays, online shopping sprees result in too many boxes, peanuts all over your carpet (or air-pacs if you get lucky), and shrink wrap galore–and it’s pretty much no big deal when you get another delivery.

I had become quite jaded myself…until I ordered a Mixbook that I worked on with my sister recently. When I came home from work yesterday, I just had this feeling and I could not be more excited to go check my mailbox. Ladies and gentlemen, let me just say that there’s nothing quite like getting your very own beautiful Mixbook creation shipped to your door, ready to be paged through, admired, wowed over, and passed around the office/neighborhood/classroom/social gathering/etc.

Here’s a little peek into my afternoon of happiness:

with my MacBook. Hmm…Mixbook. MacBook. Eerie. Ah, two great loves of my life. 🙂 Both brought into my world, courtesy of my husband (Shout out to the greatest love of my life!!)
IMG_2932.JPG See how peacefully it lies on my dining table.
IMG_2933.JPG Close up shot of how you can get to my place (if you can unblur my address).
IMG_2943.JPG I’m starting to get goosebumps right about now…
IMG_2944.JPG There it is!
IMG_2945.JPG First, we have the obligatory packing slip.
IMG_2951.JPG [play Overture from Romeo & Juliet]Ahh… I love it. ❤ It arrives to me in pristine condition thanks to the cool shrink wrap packaging. What a great feature!
IMG_2954.JPG It looks exactly like the screen version of my book and I can’t believe how crisp and true the colors are. Glossy cover, perfect binding, versatile size (8×8”) – Gosh, this feels great in my hands!
IMG_2955.JPG Let’s take a look at my title page…Shout out to my mom!
IMG_2956.JPG Mmmm….Bo’s California Rolls. Yum.
IMG_2957.JPG The sequel will definitely be my next project. Can’t wait to get another Mixbook published and sent to my little home!

It’s pretty amazing how Mixbook let me upload digital pictures that had just been hiding inside my Mac all this time, create beautiful pages with layouts, frames and backgrounds, and immortalize the cooking magic inside my brain into text on a page. Even better, I had so much fun collaborating on this recipe book with my favorite (and only) sister. It’s fun to share it online with friends and family, but I gotta say — it’s wonderful getting a fabulous, professionally printed book to have and to hold. 🙂

Now it’s your turn! Get started now.
