Oh How I Covet Thee, Dear Sleep.

My Labor Day Weekend has been crazy.

For starters, I haven't slept since Friday night. Yes, you heard me right...

Friday. Night.

Yeeeeep, I think it's safe to say that I'm on the brink of delirium.

The good news is, I've officially finished formatting, printing, cutting, hole-punching, folding, knot-tying and totally assembling 200 ceremony programs (with 4 tabs each!) for my little sister's vintage-themed wedding. I also (by some miracle) managed to finalize design, print, and cut 100 reception programs last night as well. Her candy bar banners are done too!  All I've got to work on are table numbers and 244(?) escort tags and I'll be officially done allllll the paper-crafting for my little sister's wedding.

Pictures of invites, save-the-dates, programs coming soon!

Oh but that's not all! I have also simultaneously worked on finalizing designs for my BFF's ceremony programs, escort tags, and table numbers. AND...I even managed to squeeze in some time to design my friend L's baby shower invites & sweet little BKs favor tags. And did I mention I had TWO back-to-back bridal showers and my big sister's wedding in the last three weeks alone?!

Swamped is an understatement.

But...this weekend hasn't been ALL about work though. I made sure I had some playtime, too. I took a mini-break from paper crafting yesterday, and gave my first shot at distressing some old apothecary drawers I had laying around. I used to hide the old, beat up thing in my craft closet, but be still my heart -- I've fallen in LOVE! It's amazing what a fresh coat of bold paint and sandpaper can do. Today, I also attended an antiques fair and scored a wonderful piece that I'm going to re-purpose. John thinks I should debut/sell it on my soon-to-be running Etsy store, but I might just keep it for myself. My nails look like crap (I neglected to use gloves), but I've discovered that aside from beating the shit out of eggs, NOTHING helps relieve stress like sanding the hell out of wood.

That book is TOTALLY me. ;-)
I've got a lot going on, but it feels good. Despite the exhaustion, I'm feeling much better these days. I know I've neglected my writing, but I'll be better about that once all this madness is over. In the meantime, thanks for your patience. :)
