I was going to make this my next Feature Friday post, but it's just too urgently amazing to wait an entire week (the coupon code at the bottom is time-sensitive, and I want you to have as much time as possible to take advantage of it), so consider this Feature Monday, I guess.
I heard recently about a very awesome new website called Paper Coterie, and I fell in love immediately. This is like no other photo book, calendar, etc. printing website you've ever seen. They have all kinds of modern, creatively themed photo books that are already laid out for you-- all you have to do is drop in your pictures. You have the option to change the captions, layouts, and backgrounds if you want to, but they are so well-designed that I didn't see a need to change anything in the things I've made so far.
They have these really cool books called PromptMe, where they email you a writing prompt 3 times a week for 3 months. You can answer the questions at your leisure, and when you're finished, your answers get put in a book with one picture to go with each thing you've written. I've started one of these for our family to document the next few months, because we are going to be going through a lot of change and I know we're going to see God work in huge ways, so I want to have a permanent record of it. I'm probably going to space them out to more like one every week or two, in order to make it stretch over a longer period of time.
Photo books aren't the only thing they have. You can also get adorable calendars, recipe books, growth charts, posters, and more. I think I'm going to make myself a recipe book for all of the assorted recipes I've scribbled down since learning to cook. Aren't they cute? I love the coil, which makes it lay flat when you're cooking:
There are several different kinds of calendars to fit any budget, wall, or desk:
I love all of the insanely adorable fabric growth charts and posters that are supposed to be super durable and made with a sticky backing that is supposed to be easy to move without damaging paint, wallpaper, or carpet:
Oh my, I just LOVE that Plato quote... so true. These are seriously some of the freshest, most adorable designs I've ever seen... you really have to go check them out for yourself to fully appreciate all of it. Here's the best part, the awesome gals at Paper Coterie are generously giving away FOUR codes for $50 to spend in their store plus free shipping! Did I mention that their products are all really reasonably priced? $50 will go a long way! I am so, so jealous of y'all... you don't know how hard it was for me not to keep one code for myself!

Just for the record- I've received nothing from Paper Coterie except the awesome 50% off + free shipping code that everyone can use. And I don't get any commission from any of their sales. As always, I just really love their stuff and I love to share stuff I love.
