Hey there hive. I’ve been slacking in the blogging realm lately. It’s because I’m stuck in major DIY hell complete with fire, brimstone, and vats of various craft adhesives. My current issue has been our invitation design. To most people, this is a mundane task; however, I have somehow escalated it into a ridiculously complicated endeavor that has taken weeks to resolve itself. You see, my original design didn’t have a proper resolution, and ever since I’ve found that out, any attempt to design something new spiraled out of control. During this process, I went through the normal stages of DIY grief. What? You’ve never heard of such a thing? Well, consider yourself lucky. For those fortuitous DIY queens who have never had a blunder I’ll illustrate these stages.
Stage 1: Denial
Stage 2: Anger
So, there you have it. I’m currently in the acceptance phase of our invitations, though I’m running through steps 1-4 on various other projects. I hypothesize that in another month, I will be one big ball of wedding apathy.
Have you gone through the stages of DIY grief?
