212: 7 Months, Countless Things to Do

Well, you can count them. I'll make you a list of all of the projects I want to do in the next 7 months. We'll see how many I can actually get done. I can't believe how fast the past 11 months have gone & am really excited for the next 7!

Before I start though, one of the projects on the list is half taken care of! I won a giveaway over at Miss Mojito's blog! I won 100 business cards from UPrinting! I'm going to use them for photo sharing cards. I'll see what the requirements are of the cards, but I'd like to design something cute and set up a site so guests can go to that site and upload their photos for us!

Do you guys have any favorite sites for photo sharing?

Now, my never ending list of things I want to do in the next 7 months:

I actually wanted to make a to do list as part of my 101 in 1001 Days, and even though my list grows longer everyday, I thought I'd post my list of important things to get done. After reading 101 DIY projects, it makes me want to add more to the list! We'll see what happens.

I think that's all I had for now. I feel like I'm forgetting things, and I constantly want to add things to the list!

Did you have a never ending list of projects for the wedding? Did you get them all done or is it unrealistic to think I can do all of this?


  1. I have a pretty massive to-do list, but I have it broken down into months. That makes it look so much more tolerable!

  2. i really like the prganization and concept of for photo sharing- you and your guests can upload photos and videos and order pics and you can see other weddings in you create multiple albums within, i {love} it. i then had CHEAP business cards made at vista print to help communicate the site- let me know if you want to see a picture of how I did the cards!


I love getting feedback & comments! Leave me something :)
