100 Days

Today, I am 100 days away from getting married. I am just slightly freaked out about the time line and what I still have to do. Very excited, but freaked.

I would be better if I wasn't two weeks behind in the accounting class I am taking. Or, if my ever-expanding job duties would stop expanding. And if we weren't planning renovations on the house. Or, if the cake designer I was supposed to meet on Monday had shown up for our appointment. Or if my sister had picked out and ordered a dress :)

Speaking of class, since it is currently 10:30 at night, I must get back to the nuances of job cost accounting.

Wedding DIY Number 2

This is my second wedding DIY project. Four down, sixteen to go. Fortunately, it only took me about half an hour to make these four.

They are little packets of tissues for the out-of-town guest gift bags. I made these out of medium blue pearl scrapbook paper, folded like an envelope around three tissues from one of those purse packets. Then I wrapped the 'envelopes' with a blue satin ribbon that I glued with a little glue stick and then covered the ends with a silver embossed sticker. I had to use the glue stick because the paper is a little heavier than it probably should be for optimal folding - not quite card stock, but pretty close. I was able to get four packets out of one 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper, so they were inexpensive to make, too, at about 67 cents each.
