Thanks everyone for your help on this. As I type, both books are about 80% finished with just over a week to go. I used the BIA to bind the chipboard covers in the end and I love the way they turned out. Once completed, I will do my best to post pictures in this thread. I am a little burned out from over-extending myself...these books on top of making over 350 Christmas tags for our make-and-take party and also getting Halloween treats for the office staff at DD's school...13 for the staff and 10 each for the girls' friends. Add this to my regular job, taking care of the family and also working at DH's business and it's a bit more than I would like to be doing every day!! The good news is that our wedding anniversary is in a few weeks and we are going away for a relaxing weekend! I sure could use it!!!
Ask yourself, "When Iím on my deathbed, will I be glad I was so serious about _______?" Let down your hair and stop being so darn important for a while.
