Crafting is SO hard! Seriously!!! It takes some kind of superpower to get things looking how you want them to look, the way they look in your head! You’ll get it eventually!

are you able to take pics of your so called fails?? and see if we can help you? Have you got too much going on?

Trust me alot of things that I want to turn out in my head, dont always go to plan, and im so bad at following instructions. always missing out a step so their looking a little odd.

I love crafting but it is for sure a trail and error process!

What were the main issues you had? Do you have pics?

We’d love to help!!

Hehe, I’m totally a DIY fail about 75% of the time! And it usually takes sooooo many tries to get things right, I end up making about 5 prototypes of any given project! You are not alone! 🙂

ditto sulli!! there was this project that i tried in theory sounded brilliant, i wanted to cover a vase with tissue paper and then put roses around it… sort of like a decoupage… with a great stamp. it came out like sh.t :o) i ended up wrapping it with a bunch of ribbons and it turned out wonderful…

I feel the same way. I’m also afraid that when I put it all together on the big day it won’t look coordinated but rather a mish-mash of mismatched things!

If it were as simple and easy as some folks make it look, we wouldn’t be able to hire people to do these things. I suck at most DIY. If there is hot glue, I will end up with 2nd degree burns. Have patience with yourself. Post some pictures for help. Walk away from the crafts so that you’re not tempted to smash anything with a hammer. Grab a beverage and take a look at regretsy to take the edge off (fish in a squirrel suit anyone?). Later on, give it another try if you’re up to it.
