After three years of half-ditch efforts, commitment phobia and downright procrastination, today I finally did it.
I finally finished Maddie's adoption book. ;)
It's a book that has been 1460 days in the making, but it is finally complete. Whew.
It's not a book so much as a narrated picture album. I took the blog posts from Finding Maddie and combined it with the photos we took of our journey and came up with a 100 page masterpiece - or at least you would think it was a work of art with as much work as went into it. ;)
I have to admit, I'm relieved. I wanted to get this done much sooner, but I hemmed and I hawed about which company was best to use and which one would give me the best deal. These things are EXPENSIVE! And I knew to have it the way I really wanted it, it needed to be all or nothing.
So I waited. And my patience (gasp) paid off. A few days ago I stumbled on coupon code that allowed me to get a 100 page book from My Publisher for only $35. I saved more than 80% of the cost.
Awesome. I knew this couponing thing would come in handy some day.
The book is being printed right now and should be delivered sometime next week. I'll be sure to take a pic of it when it comes in and give you Maddie's full review. ;)
