@HourThyme:  First of all-cute idea about the coloring books!!  This is the FIRST time I’ve heard of that and I love the idea!

Second of all-Perfectionist?! I mean, this is for your wedding!!  HELLO!

I’m sure your mom made that comment because she wanted to be helpful and after that she realized she wasn’t helpful and probably got her feelings hurt.  But at the same time–I’m a huge believer in: If you are going to do something do it right!

Sorry you are dealing with this, hopefully the coloring books turn out great!

@HourThyme:  This would really grate on me too so do not feel bad that it irritates you. Im a crazy crafter (not that Im suggesting you are 😉 and I have to be VERY selective in who I let do things because stuff like this drives me bonkers.

That being said there are only two things you can do about it. (1) Realize that most people won’t notice the things that you do as we are our own worst critics and not worry about it. Or (2) Make more comic books yourself or have a skilled friend.

If you go with 2 then you can either tell your mother that () Tell your you made a few more to be sure you had enough. Or (B) Have your planner put yours on the tables instead of the messed up ones.

 

Good luck! Remember no one will notice every little thing the way you do.
