This is my favorite stage of the book: done. My second favorite, opening up the box to pull out the models for the first time, runs very close.
One of the pros around here is advance copies. Before the full print run hits our warehouse, we get a few copies to hold in our hot little hands or, in this case, stack up next to the in box.
In this stack it looks like I have Best of Kooler for cross stitch, Scrapbooking Inspirations from Creating Keepsakes, Debbie Mumm's latest, our very own bee-you-tee-full Bouquet of Blooms, and a cute felt leaflet called From Felt to Fabulous by Kimberly Layton.
