Les émotions de la France Book Swap The Book Building Process Has Begun!

I am SO excited! My wonderful husband just helped me to begin the book building process. There are six pages down, 18 to go plus a front and back cover as well as an index of participants. This book is already so beautiful.

I decided to just place the pages in separate baggies as they are received and will just keep adding them as they come in. That way I am not doing it all at once. I am glad I started the process because it did take some time. But my husband, Chuck, and I have our system down now. He passes me the pages and I place them in. He is so careful with them too. I said, "Honey, you have to gently pick each page up and hand it to me facing up".

He has a heads up as well that we will be binding these beauties next week at this time. Actually, hopefully I will be most of the way done on Sunday. I know a curve ball might be thrown my way though, so I am partially ready for my challenge. My fear is that someone will not send in their page and I will be freaking out to make another one to replace it. I want this book to be perfect for all of you!

I also have small gift bags made up for you all. I included some french pages and french flashcards for your next altered adventures. I hope that you like them and I could never thank you all enough for entering into this journey with me!

Again, thanks to all for participating, for the lovely goodies and for all of your hard work. It will be SO worth it. I will keep you posted!

Hi Rhonda,
Just wanted you to know you've been tagged. Read my blog for more info.
(Just wanted to let you know this tag thing took me awhile to do so if you can't do it, I'll understand).
Ohhhh, your lovely book sounds so wonderful, I'm glad it is all coming together, and what would we do without our loving hubbys!!
Keep me in mind for your next project, my french friend.
