Guys, I tried to DIY last night. I had a friend come over, we called it craft night. I was going to complete my first wedding related DIY craft project. I was looking forward to it all day.
Instead, the project failed and I pouted. Stupid! How could my very first wedding DIY, which was supposed to be easy, fail?
I'll tell you why:
1) I got too eager to start, and didn't really think through my process. I dived right in, and wasted some supplies.
2) I bought the cheapest supplies possible instead of spending a little bit more (which I'll have to spend now anyway!) to buy the supplies that would quickly and succinctly get the job done.
3) I was really distracted by other things going on: having a friend, picking our menu for our tasting (!), being ridiculously warm, and so I wasn't focused on the task at hand.
So at least my DIY fail was a good learning experience? I'm definitely going to hit craft stores this weekend and buy the CORRECT supplies, look up some instructions for the project, and focus on what I'm doing. I can't wait to share it with you when it's a WIN. (I'll show you the fail ones too, but we'll wait on that til I can also show the win...it's better for my ego.)
What's your biggest DIY fail?
ALSO - we have officially hit 100 Posts! Wahoo! Unfortunately, I don't have the number of followers I said I wanted to hit as well...short by 3. But you know what, let's celebrate anyway! I'll post my first ever giveaway tomorrow...get excited!
