Helloooo bloggy friends!
I'm taking a quick break from wedding crafting so I can blow some steam. Three very important ladies in my life are getting married in less than three weeks and I'm officially experiencing wedding overload. It's exciting and terrifying and I'm not even the bride! LOL! I'm starting to understand why some brides (well, the ones who can actually afford to) quit their jobs to devote their time to wedding planning.
I'm not complaining -- there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the fruits of my labor being appreciated by people I love -- but I must admit I'm a bit overwhelmed! I'm not stressed about the work load, but I'm anxious because I don't want to disappoint anyone. I take pride in my work and I don't cut corners. I've been doing this party planning thing for 8 years now (since Kevie was born), but I've never done a wedding! So, my inner "craft crackhead" has come out and reared its ugly head these past few weeks. I've been very snippy lately, but it's mainly because I've set deadlines for myself and ohmygosh I keep getting disturbed! It is virutally impossible to get anything done during the day/evening so I tend to be most productive when the house is quiet as a mouse. I'm sacrificing sleep, but I say it's worth it! :)
It has been invigorating and therapeutic to work with my hands and use the creative side of my brain. I've been going through so much emotionally these past few months that I really think I needed this. As stressful as it has been, I need to keep my mind, fingers, and body preoccupied with something other than my altered emotional state, ya know? As exhausting as it has been, in the end, I know all of my hard work will pay off. :)
It's 1am and I'm rambling, but I feel better now that I've gotten these thoughts out of my head. As always, thanks for "listening."
