Earlier this year I started working on a special photo album of nature pictures and posts. It took weeks just to sift through all my photos and writing. I found more material than could fit in a single album, so I split the project in two. Then I had to cut and paste, arrange, edit, and proofread. After months of working on it, it still wasn’t finished, and I had begun to think it might never be.

Then Shutterfly put on an irresistible sale. They offered me a book of any length at the price of a 20-page album. This was the perfect opportunity to print the larger of the two albums at an affordable price. The catch: the sale only lasted a few days. That meant I had to finish the book right away.

And finish it I did. Thank goodness for deadlines! The book arrived this week. It’s beautiful. Truly. Even my husband, who didn’t really understand why I was making the album, said it was a real accomplishment. I am proud of myself for having worked so hard and having made something so wonderful. And now I feel like I could accomplish anything I put my mind to (which is good, because the other half of the project is still waiting!).
