That is the sound of me screaming to get the stress out. I cant wait til next week when there is nothing going on.
Monday evening after the crazy mess of the pitiful Ohio State game I came home to get my stuff all finished for the wedding. I had just bought 2 strapless bras and was trying them on with my dress to see which would hold my girls in best.
That is when my zipper decided to have a mind of its own. The flimsy little thing pulls away from the dress because the teeth were crooked. Worse I couldnt get the dress off. Then I try to pull off the bustier to see if that would help and it got stuck in my hair. So after 4 minutes of untangling my hair I realize my dress is really stuck. Finally after 10 minutes of fiddling (including my husband getting the pliers out) I get the damned thing off.
Of course there now is the horror that my dress needs a new zipper and I have to leave for the airport in 2 days. So now Im sobbing, panic'd that I cant get it fixed in time. I was supposed to drive it to my brother Tues. afternoon so I didnt have to carry it on the airplane. Now I didnt even have a dress I could wear.
I got up early on Tuesday and proceeded to run around looking for someone ANYONE who can do a new zipper in 2 days. Alot of people just looked at me like I was nuts... and bridal shops wont touch it if you didnt buy it there. (she had us order them online) Finally I found someone who would take it. She didnt have the right zipper. I told her ANY zipper at this point would work. I was out of time
Im supposed to pick it up in an hour. *fingers crossed* it tooks okay. I so want this dress drama to be out of the way!
Onto some happy scrappy stuff. Here is a matching card/layout I made for a crop challenge at AllyScraps. The little guy is my sweet nephew Tyler.
