Hot off the presses

It's always exciting to see the FedEx or UPS guy drive up our driveway, but I have to admit that when it's a book being delivered, the excitement is mixed with nervousness. I spend upwards of a hundred hours on each blog book and about twenty hours getting images ready and designing the layout for a photography book.

My biggest fear is that something will be wrong -that I'll have to get in touch with the printer and do through the hassle of getting a book reprinted. It doesn't happen very often, but it's never fun when it does.

A blog book arrived today and I couldn't get the packaging off fast enough. I was surprised by how thick it was compared to a 40 page book. See?


Jenny and Joel - here's a sneak peak at a few of the 314 pages that will arrive on your door step soon....
