I would say that I am in DIY bliss but I think the secret is to not bite off more than you can choose and to give yourself ample time to tackle the tasks…and they to have a plan B to take the stress off!

I’m in DIY bliss as well… I’ve loved working on all my projects so far. I do 1-2 projects every week so I don’t overwhelm my self.

Im doing bouquets, boutineers, corsages, pomanders, ring box, flower basket, guestbook, birdhouses (decor), favors, signs… can’t think of everything right now. 

I’m having a blast!

DIY pergatory? I love some of the little projects but as I am not an incredibly crafty person some are a bit overzealous. I have no shame in resorting to Etsy if things don’t work out.

You can do it! I’ve made my bouquet and veil so far. Going to work on a garter soon!

Mine were fun, but I totally agree not to bite off more than you can chew. I wanted the diys I did to be executed really well, so i only did things I knew would turn out nicely. I also gave myself lots of time, and tried to focus on one project at a time. I’m sure your diys wil be fabulous, just keep at it, and try to to let anything stress you out. If its not fun,don’t do it. 😉

Heres a post of my DIY recap if you want to check it out.

favorite DIYs, simple & sweet

@Treejewel19:  pergatory? I love it!

I’m in bliss for now. The projects seem to keep me calm.

Bliss, but we haven’t done a whole lot of DIY at this point. I’m the first to admit that I’m not crafty so I have no problems stopping before I go crazy or the project goes downhill.
