All at Target for $0.97 although I had to visit 2 different stores for a total of 55 boxes.  Dollar Tree had them as well however; not in the quantity that I needed and I saved 3 cents each LOL

TGIF! Although my Friday's (since the new copier was installed) has been welcomed with open arms.  Today was no exception!  Per my last post, I made it to work at 6:35 and warmed up my Canon Guy as he was in for a long hall.  We had a brief discussion about paper getting stuck and he listened for the most part.  Only 1 stuck cardstock.  He did pre-warm me that it will take him longer to print card stock than regular paper and boy was he correct.  IT took him roughly 35 minutes to print 50 pages of card stock (although thick) but again he did an amazing job.  Being the Type A person that I am when it comes to planning, I stayed up until 12 am making a page 2-3 of the welcome book (I wanted my coming in early not to be in vain).  So page 2 is the "welcome to Cancun" standard welcome found on BDW with a few additions and deletions, followed by a schedule of events.  As these were on a lighter paper it took him about 15 minutes per set of 25 (doubled sided-short edge).  So there I was at 7:55a done and contemplating on what to do next.  So I started working on page 4....well the design...  but now it's time to start my work day.

 

Enjoy my Fellow Brides and as alwyas, HAPPY DIYing

I have 20 of these pages to cut (I always do extra just in case).

Not all of them look the same as far as the bling.. Some have bling inside the S, or the colors are reversed etc.. 

 

Happy DIYing

 

PS I found out today, that if I send documents from the computer to my printer friend, he accepts the items face-up (excluding labels.)  However; if you are in his company trying to print he takes the documents face-down. I told you his a$% is bipolar.  smile105.gifBut I love my (oooppsss- my work) Canon Printer Guy...  stay tuned, I'm going in the office tomorrow at 6:30 to print the cover of our welcome booklet.  I already pre-cut all 50 card stock pages...so NO cutting afterwards.. YES....

 

Nite

I actually started planning (STDs, Invites in Dec with contact to Sarah from Sprouille Designs).  From there, I started researching, making notes, gathering inspirations pics etc...But I also set a goal for myself to have certain portions completed etc.. by certain dates (My son has crazy amounts of homework that average between 1 1/2 to 3 hrs a night, plus his activities) so I had to have major stuff stuff.  So now I can work on those things that I can take my time on.... But I also want to be done done done by Christmas which is 1 month behind schedule for me.  The holidays are huge for us and with work we are implementing a new computer system so with 6 clinics that I oversee I dare not do anything but pay off stuff in Jan.  Mentally I know that I will not be able to do.

Funny thing is, everything gets done. Perfectly and in a timely manner, yet I don't have a do this then this then this.  I believe I may have ADHD, my list sorta goes like do this, this, and this...all at one time. If I accomplish this and still have this & this to do, go ahead and start that!

 

I know a lot of this and that, it makes sense to me though.
