Yesterday towards the end of my lunch hour I compiled draft one of my DIY list which included the project then what I need for it like so:
This is partially for me to keep track of how much I’m spending (eventually I’m going to add prices to the list) and partially for me to remember everything I come up with! Well, it’s over 3 pages long, haha. Right now there are 20 different items. Fiance is freaking out…”how are you gonna do all this…I’m not crafty enough to help with most of those…are we biting off more then we can chew…?”
So then, to make him realize we have 13 months to do it all, I made a timeline:
And though this is helping him realize we can get it all done, he’s still a little nervous. I think the big thing actually is that he wants to help, but is afraid to because he isn’t as crafty as me and doesn’t want to screw up any of the projects I’m planning.
I’m hoping as time goes on and we start doing stuff he’ll be more reassured that I won’t let him screw anything up, hahaha.
What about all you other DIY Bees, how do you stay organized? Is your fi involved in the projects?

I have completed making all the crytal boutinieres for the grooms men including his and the fathers and the corsages for the moms still working on bridemaid bouquets and mine. I completed my gift card bird cage last night it came out fantastic. My list include all the centerpieces I am doing crystal manzanati centerpieces putting bling on all the votives blinging the tablenumbers and my list keep growing too…LOL…Now I am considering adding the blinging of the shoe..But we will see…LOL…We also did our own invitations he printed and I blinged them out. He is however becoming a kind of a groomzilla..Doesnt want me to do anything without him knowing…LOl…Go Figure…
