Book made from kids' photos was a great Christmas gift

Steve's baby daughter made amazing progress this week, or so his wife thought

STEVE CANAVAN: It was a lot of rattle over just a little roll

How about this for a great gift? My brother made me a book of photographs (not an album, an actual book) of my children.

It's inspired me to get all my digital pics off the laptop and published.

Since Supa-snaps (or whatever its name was) closed down in Gosport, my hard drive has just become more and more clogged with images that no-one ever looks at.

I've been uninspired to print as that involves travel (anything over two miles is outside my comfort zone in winter), or uploading to the net (which is just such a faff).

But now I'm in full publishing mode and loving it.

It's so easy to do as well, using a site called Blurb.com and booksmart software.

Get gift making for next Christmas now.
