Trust me, you will appreciate it esp. if you spend a lot of time on this site!

 

My binder has my (working) budget, OOT supply list, bridal bag supply list, type of photos I want on the wedding day, group activity ideas, DIY list of projects...and that's just the beginning! Personally, it is so much better than one of those pre-made one that cost over $20!!! 

CAKnight...that's a great idea.  I have a binder but I haven't done too much to it so it's time to get moving on making my binder a bit more organized.

Yes...perfection is so elusive, isn't it? lol. I know they are minute.Yet, I feel since these are all DIY projects (thus 100% me) that I feel more pressure for them to be perfect. I'm sure after a certain number of invitations I will just be like forgot it...I'm just going to call (insert name here). lol. Just kidding! I will just have a drink...and keep going! 

LOL CAKnight.  It's frustrating because you want everything perfect (even though perfection is impossible).  Find yourself nit-picking over minute details.  I had to just stop myself...before I make myself crazy.  I'm just telling myself now to just relax and keep calm.  No need to get myself crazy...lol

I have a stack of notebook paper inside my binder...I'm waiting for the time when I can actually get around to naming the tabs so that I can be organized. So, it seems like we are in the same boat! But, I think the most important thing to remember is that we have at least taken the first step in having all of our ideas in one place! Celebration dance for that! 

CAKnight...that's a great idea.  I have a binder but I haven't done too much to it so it's time to get moving on making my binder a bit more organized.

You're welcome moody! :) 

Think I might start a thread about that so we can all get organized together!

      Since I'm getting married during the course of a cruise, I'm sure that I will be relaxed once I get aboard it! 

      Very very elusive, but my personality is driving me to seek it anyway..lol.  I'm trying to avoid to many DIY projects because I know i'll be completely insane if I do.  But having a few drinks while working is definitely a good plan to stay relaxed while working on those things!  I like it!!!

       

      I think once everything is in progress then you have no choice but to relax but it's getting to that final destination point before you can actually do so.

      You are definitely off to a great start...I need to play catch up..lol.  But you are right though...we have definitely at least taken the first step in having everything in one place.  I'll dance to that too! and one day soon we'll be jumping for joy when it's all finalized and we're on the other side .
