I have the same problem. I’m not as easily artistic as some people, so I have trouble bringing what’s in my head to my actual projects. I think baking and cooking are the only things I can achieve my mental image with! 

I think that the more you practice, the more easily it will come. You just really have to learn what you’re doing – so, spend more time with Photoshop for your invites, etc.

I’ve had that when I’ve tried to craft in the past … enough that I’m not trying to DIY practically anything for our wedding. I just don’t trust myself!

Yeah, just about everything I make “evolves” as it is created. I tried to make a necklace not too long ago that was going to be three strands, one with ribbon, one chain and one pearl, but it just wasn’t turning out right and so it just became a 1 strand pearl necklace with an off-center charm. It’s one of my favorite pieces now though.

Just try to be flexible with your visions, sometimes they end up better than you imagined!

That’s how it was with my centerpieces.  I’m still not thrilled with them, but I’m just hoping they look better in a dimly lit and otherwise decorated room than they do on my kitchen table, lol…

Uhhhh ya. See my thread about Yudu-ing my invites. Giant fail. LOL! I’ve realized for some things it’s worth it just to pay a professional to do it! There are a lot of things I’m still DIY-ing and excited about, but when the scope of a project is large or uber complicated, you’ll spend more time, money and frustration trying to fix it. Focus on the fun stuff!
