1+1 Weekend Project

{finished birth announcement}

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am the WORST at estimating how long it will take for me to complete a project! Sometimes I think I underestimate the time to trick myself into thinking the project isn't as much work as it is ~ other times, I must think I am a much faster worker than I actually am. Most of the time, I'm sure I am just tired out from the paying job and don't have much extra energy for personal work ~ even though I look forward to and want to do such work.

This time around was a bit more challenging than usual ~ I thought about documenting some of the steps, but my cutting table/ironing board didn't make a good backdrop for photos! Since my lower back has been bothering me, I had to come up with a comfortable position to complete all of the cutting ~ my ironing board ended up working out perfectly! Since it was out, I got some clothes ironed as well!

I'm glad to have the announcements finished and checked off my list ~ even happier that my sister seems pretty happy with the results!
