Stuck in DIY?
Posted 17 September 2008 - 06:14 AM
I feel like I have all these great ideas, but I am stuck trying to sort through them and I think it's because of lack of resources... I don't know where to find 1/2 the stuff I want to make. Michaels and AC Moore are just not cutting it anymore. I really want to do pocketfold invitations - but where do I get paper big enough to make them? I want to start making up my OOT bags, but is it too early?
Girls, I need help

I use Card Stock, Vellum Paper, Envelopes, Metallic Cardstock, Invitation Cards & Specialty Wedding Stationery - Paperandmore.com for all the paper I buy. I know there are other options out there, but I am biased...
Maybe you should start with a list of all the DIY projects you want to do and then figure out if you need to speed it up?

We started the invites about 6 months out. I started buying items for the OOT bags about 9 months out. I'm less than 2 months out and haven't put the bags together yet, i'll probably do that by the end of this month (i'm handing my bags out before we leave for Punta Cana). I really didn't start a lot of my projects until around the 5 month mark. I know have a lot to do and still have projects to do so i wish i started earlier.
I hope this helps...

Danielle, I see you live in Jersey - I'm in Queens. Have you ever been to the paper presentation store in Union Sq (in the city - obviously)? I hear it's great, I just haven't had the opportunity to get there yet.
Ladies, you're the best...

Only other thing I have done is wrap 36 fans (but now I think I am goign to need 10 more, but that can wait for final head count). I am finishing the logo this week (friend is trying to tweak the colors so when it prints it matches the ribbon perfectly, versus what we see on the screen). Once this is complete I can work on name tags, luggage tags, welcome brochures most importantly invites. So, that is my task for October. Good Luck! Dont' forget to have a wine DIY party with your girlfriends (mine are all mad at me that I have not enlisted their help, so when the logo is done...boy will they be sorry!)
