For the past 2 months I’ve been working on the sheet music roses every night for at least an hour or so. Some nights more, some nights less. I think there were a few nights that I took a break from it completely. When I first started the project I was gung-ho! The first 2 out of 3 turned out okay. One tutorial had a different type of rose, which I didn’t really care for, the other one was okay but a pain in the ass to create, but one tutorial rocked. I’m still making the roses, I’m not quite finished yet, as you can see from the pics, but I’m getting better and better at it. My fingers are a bit calloused from the hot glue gun, (that shit gets really hot!), and I have paper cuts on my fingers, but the roses are turning out beautifully.
David and my daughter Maria think I missed my calling. I love creative stuff. As I type this I’m printing the rest of our programs, which I created in MS Word, and once that’s done I’ll be making more roses as the washer and dryer do their things! Then I’ll tackle cleaning the kitchen, then our bedroom, the guest room, and then the living room. I also need to finish spray painting the wicker table that is on our porch. I started it yesterday but ran out of white spray paint. Our rehearsal dinner is tomorrow afternoon at our house and there is so much to do for it, and for the wedding, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, so I decided to take some “me” time this morning and drink a few cups of coffee before I begin on my “to-do” list.
So far this whole wedding planning thing has had it’s ups and downs. I’ve gone from extremely excited to feeling kind of meh to feeling overwhelmed to feeling blah to feeling like OH WELL FUCK IT to feeling excited again. I am ready for the wedding! The reception! and the Honeymoon! and for all of this planning, details, to-do stuff to be over with.
* Sorry for the language if it offends you. In no way do I mean to be offensive, but planning a wedding has depleted my quota of manners lately…And since this is my blog, and the one place I can truly vent…Well, you get it! In order not to turn into a BRIDEZILLA I created the blog so I could vent and enjoy all of this wedding and life stuff at the same time. 😀
