withdrawal...

aargh. i dont know how much longer i can take it- im seriously going through crafting withdrawal. maybe if i would get off the internet for a minute i could go make something. duh.
.........
i promissed myself that i wouldnt make any journals till after the wedding. i dont think im going to make it that long though! basically it came down to this- none of the wedding "crafts" were getting done because i was putting them off so i could make journals and the like. finally i put my foot down and got on the card box, unity candles, and a couple other things- the MAIN thing was the invitations. i mean, those HAD to get done.
so now, we have a to do list still, yes, buuuut a lot of it is stuff we cant do for another couple weeks- contact stray rsvp's (oh. i. cannot. wait.), making a seating chart, meeting with the dj again, stuff like that.
.......
the things i can be doing NOW for the wedding are things that im totally dreading- contacting a tailor to alter my dress just a TINY bit (its just so slight but i cant have it falling off to our first dance to the groovie ghoulies- this isnt a slow dance, so im a little worried that i might "shake it" too much and the dress will slide right off me.) anyway- i am not looking forward to bringing it in to get it fixed. joe asked me why not, i dont know- its just not my thing! i dont like talking to people on the phone...this will be my very first phone call for the wedding! joe called the reverend, and as far as the vendors go- we communicate through emails. oooh yeah, i got the beads for the bridesmaids necklaces yesterday, i dont want to start those because ive never made necklaces before. and my original idea for the necklaces fell through, sooo yeah.
.......
anyway, i cant take it anymore! i am going to craft today, and then im sure tonight will come and i will end up whining that our wedding stuff is never going to get done, blah blah. it would help so so so much if my MOH could be here to help (she moved to VA right after we got engaged, hasnt been back since...is coming on friday but i will only see her for a couple hours...), joe works all of the time, i HATE it because it pushes all of the wedding stuff onto me and only me. he's been helping a little more lately, but his job really interferes with it.
okay so enough bitching. basically i just wanted to tell you guys that i might make a few things today and tomorrow, but i dont know. i just did a custom order for a guy but it was just stationery that i printed from the computer (his request) so i didnt do a whole lot really- i get to cut it all today and ship it out. im also going to my parents house to pick up the lanterns for the bridesmaids so i can get candles for them, and im making french dips with mushrooms for dinner- mister slow cooker, how i love you so...then i have a few other little things and THEN COMES A JOURNAL i hope. please be the day! ooh crap. never mind. after writing this whole post, i just realized- i have to drive out to vernon hills today...its about 45 minutes away. oh im thrilled. okay, im going back to bed now.
........
well, on a lighter note- i can see some pine tree silhouettes from my window right now. the sky is pink, purple and orange and they look so nice. i can only see the tops of the trees, but i love it.
.......
anyway, have a good thursday!
