~Weddings and Tutus and Monkeys, Oh My~

The wedding is now only 11 days away. I'm working on finishing up Amy's veil today. Along with shipping out 8 jewelry orders. And seeing Mom. And my Aunt Grace, who we moved into the same place Mom is at this past weekend. And making more Cheeky Tutu Monkeys and Tutus for little girls, as my first 3-weekend show begins in August~

The nightmare of all nightmares happened last week: I shipped the wrong necklace which was meant to be given at a shower on Saturday. This is the second time in 8 years that I've done this. I feel awful about it, and am waiting to hear back from the customer....and the OTHER customer, too. sigh.

So....I'm off to the nursing home.....and then the studio this morning....waiting for the gray clouds to clear and let the sun shine. May it be sunny wherever YOU are in the world today~

Sounds like things are FULL - SPEED ahead at your place. The little cheeky monkey in its' tutu is ADORABLE....so cute!! I'm sorry about the necklace mishap. Hopefully, it all gets straightened out quickly.

Enjoy your day.♥

A perfect gift is worth the wait. You are an amazing woman, I feel that in every thing you do. Your blog is adorable. I am glad I found you through this. I am going to have to link your blog to mine. ballardbanter.blogspot.com

Take a DEEEEEEEEEEEP breath. You'll make it through all you have to do with your usual style and grace, I just know it. Re: necklaces, you can wait for after the wedding to do mine if you want because I'm in no hurry and agree with The Ballard's that a perfect piece of jewelry is indeed well worth a wait.

My dear sweet overachieving perfectionist friend...this is why *you* are blessed with the success you have worked so hard for...because you have the patience, grace, and tact to handle it. You know what I would do...and then I'd have it tattooed where others could see it. ; ) I love you madly...now smile...and breathe.

That little monkey doll is so cute!!! I'm sorry about the necklace mix-up, but hopefully they were understanding about it. We are only human and we do make mistakes, sometimes. Love & blessings from NC!

1 mistake in 8 years? Don't beat yourself up! I think that officially makes you "almost perfect" - just like Mary Poppins!!!
