I’ve decided that I’m not really equipped for producing multiple reproductive projects. I’ve been seriously devoting my time to making the twenty five baby shower invitations. I’m absolutely serious when I tell you that I haven’t gotten ONE completed. Not even ONE. I’m starting to panic and am not really sure where to go from here. I had Rich made me an extra invitation (since he’s printing the insides), and I’ve already had to use it. I’m freaking out because I don’t want to disappoint our friends but clearly, this project is much too big for me. It would be different if I was making one and then using a copier to reproduce them. But I’m stamping and masking and then coloring and putting in a background stamp then using ribbon (that frays like you cannot believe.) I’ve never tried to make something twenty-five times let alone something as important as invitations. I should have chosen an easier design, but honestly, I didn’t think this one was that hard to do. Little did I know that it would be a virtual nightmare for me. I’m putting way too much pressure on myself and need to just forget about the project and take one at a time and forget about the other twenty-four. Geez, I don’t think I can do it. This would be a great time to consider anti-anxiety medicines. Yikes, I’m freaking out for no good reason. Ok, I do have one good reason. The insides are so complicated, Rich doesn’t want to try to make any more of them. It took him all afternoon to make his first twenty-five, and he had to reprint nine of them because the ink ran low and changed colors on some of them. That little reprint took all last night, so I really hate to ask him to make more. I’m not going to freak out, I’m not going to freak out, I’m not going to freak out. Does Jennifer McGuire freak out? Does Lindsay freak out? I seriously doubt it. I’d be thrilled to know that somewhere there’s a blog post from one of them saying they have a big project like this and are scared they aren’t up to the challenge. That would make me feel so much better. Enough stalling, I need to make some invitations. Cross your fingers for me, I may never leave my craft room again since I may never finish them.
Oh and I worked on finishing the chair for my girlfriend early this AM, and super glued my fingers together and the magnets aren’t matching up, so some of the pieces have the wrong side of the magnet glued down so they keep trying to flip over and that’s making me crazy as well. Another project I may never finish. It’s been a never ending battle of which project can break me. Call the people with the straight jackets, I’m going to be needing a room.
