Oh, Paper Source, You Are a Fickle, Fickle Lover

I stopped into Paper Source to pick up some last minute supplies and walked out with a bag of stuff that I pray Natalie and Piehole never, ever see and a receipt that I hope Andy never, ever sees. Paper Source has apparently updated their line in the last few weeks and released several items that would have saved me HOURS over the last six months.

For example, remember these?

I spent hours punching and applying those circle stickers. Literally, hours. These sheets of 1.25" labels would have saved me from myself for sure:

I spent Sunday night making all of the signage for the event -- reserved tables, cake table, etc. I used 5" labels mounted on 5.5" square cards, similar to these table numbers from my friend trix's wedding:

Printing on the circle labels involves measuring the center of each circle, taping it to an 8.5" X 11" template, and praying that it prints centered. These new sheets of 4" labels would have been perfect for the task -- not to mention the for the programs. My friends VP, Kenny, and I have all spent way too much time trying to get the program covers to print on 5.5" circle cards.

They've also released copper stardream paper. Just a few weeks earlier, and my program covers would be copper stardream circles with 4" round labels. Oh well. My programs are very handsome and the work's already (almost) done, so I'm not too disappointed. Still, you have to admit that it is a bit of an F-U! My friend VP has threatened to stage an intervention.

BTW, I got my rings resized yesterday. I finally convinced the woman that I am NOT a 6.25 - 6.5. She refused to go up to a size 7 so we split the difference and made my e-ring a 6.75 and my wedding band a "Shy 7." I can now slide them on and off with effort, but without panic.

There is a ton of stuff that I'm seeing now that it's getting closer to my wedding, that I wish they would have had available earlier!!! And you're right, I see it, and all I can say is "Dammit!".
Oh well....
