Thanks for stopping by anitome.com! Here you’ll find help and ideas for your baby book, time capsule, or any keepsake project.
I’m Stephanie Jean Mackie, or just Stephanie Jean. I put this little blog together to save you time trying to find all that current event info for your little one’s baby book. With babies, who has time or the energy to research all that stuff! So that page usually gets left blank. But most of us really want to complete all the pages for our child because it’s fun for them to look back on.
So here you go! I usually post from the current year backwards and will update the year after it has concluded. Please feel free to make a year request below in the comments section. You can keep checking back or subscribe to be notified when if I’ve posted your request!

A little about me…
I live in Colorado and have two little boys, one big boy, and Kimber, our puppy. My days consist of hybrid-schooling my oldest (homeschool/on-campus combo), woodworking, blogging, the outdoors, some travel, and trying to keep our puppy from chewing everything in sight! I talk more about our life and adventures on my Blog.
When my first son was born, in 2006, I created anitome~A Baby Book & Annual Birthday Journal because I wanted him to be able to keep memories throughout his life, not just in the first years. The ‘mass’ produced baby books also seemed so impersonal to me. Now, each year’s important events and memories get written down in both of my son’s anitome books on their birthdays.
In 2012, when my second son was born, I took some woodworking classes so I could build both of my boys a personalized wood keepsake chest. We use their wood chests to keep their baby stuff, along with trophies, teeth(yes I’m gross), and other mementos that come with time. Because of the interest I’ve gotten over the years, I’ve made the anitome book, printables, and my keepsake chests available at Myla Stone & Co. Since these items are created by me and NOT mass produced, please understand that they are limited. It’s what makes them special!
Note: The anitome book is currently sold out! Printable sections of anitome are available at Myla Stone & Co. if you want to print it through your own printer. I will notify everyone on here and by email when print copies are available again.
The last couple of years I have also jumped on the photobook bandwagon. I’ve imported some of my one-page printables along with our photos into their software with success! You can find my photo book recommendations on my Keepsake Ideas page or Blog.
