I thought all the DIY madness would be done after the wedding.(Actually I loved doing craft projects for my wedding but it did get hectic with some late nights in the weeks leading up to it.) However, I am still tackling DIY projects.
I just designed a postcard mailer to all the wedding guests informing them of our online gallery for pro pics and where they can upload digital pics they may have. I am working on shadow boxes to display all our wedding stationery (invite, STD, menu, program, etc), not to mention the albums I will work on for our wedding, bridal shower, and rehearsal dinner pics.
Anyone else still doing DIY projects even though the wedding has passed?

I didn’t have that many DIY projects before our wedding thanks to a combination of a shorter engagement and a crazy schedule at work. I have picked up my old crafts though, and just whipped out a baby sweater for my new niece. It was the first time since the wedding I was up until midnight just crafting something that didn’t HAVE to be done that night.

I decided to design thank you notes for our guests using the group shot from our wedding…and then well of course I should include a card in there about our photo sharing site so that was DIY projects 1 & 2. Then I decided I should sew a cute apron for two of our vendors, and some fabric flower pins for a couple other vendors…so that made DIY projects 3, 4, 5, & 6. I think I’m coming up with things just to pass the “extra time” we now have….and I wonder how long this will last? Of course, you mentioned photo albums, which reminds me we still have those to do….I think it’s my way of coping! 😉

I spent a lot of time working with our wedding pictures and am now trying to move on to DIY projects that are more home-focused. Our wedding was in June, so I’ve been slowly letting go. 🙂 It helped that we moved and have a new place to decorate!

I am always working on some sort of craft project. After the wedding I did a wedding memory shadow box and thank you notes. Every Christmas we do a photo Christmas card that I spend a lot of time on. Right now I am working on sewing a skirt, making wine tags for our wine cellar, and scrap-booking our latest vacation. It never ends!

Yeah, getting thank you cards out and figuring out photos will be big DIY projects, but fun, and less stressful
