OMG OMG OMG OMG.... I fail.

I checked the mail when I came home today, but there was nothing there.  Mr. ST brough it in with him much later when he came home.  There were TWO surprises:
Don't you like the hearts?  Can't have my address all out there in cyber-space.

I tore open the big package first.  It was this:

I had gotten a Swiffer 360, but it broke the first time I used it.  So this kid wrote a scathing letter* to the company.  They offered to send me a new one.  Plus some coupons.  Score!!!

With as much excitement as I could muster (honestly, the NKOTBSB concert got alllllll my excitment and reserve) I opened the white package... I spilled everything out.
Ooooooooooo!!! SQUWEEEEEEEEE!!!!  The tray, the pick, the syringes, the.... whoahThat's 720 crystals?  Um,.....huh?!?  I looked at the packages a bit closer.  No, it's all of them. 

I thought I had done enough sizing and resizing to determine I would have had enough.  Those ss5 are SMALLLLLLL.  Much smaller than I really thought and I printed off the size sheet in "real" size.  So my super fantabuloso math skills have done me in again.  720 crystals may not even be enough to get done a HALF a shoe.  I'm going to sit down some time next week and place them all on.  I'll see how far I get with them before I figure out how many more I'll need.... because I know I'll need more.

This, so far, has been a FAIL.  Math skills be damned!!!!

You're in the majority and in good company as who is good at maths. They look very pretty though.

I love wedding crafts! But I'm not sure if I could pull for a project like these without going crossed-eyed having the stare at all those tiny crystals. You go girl! Can't wait to see how they come out!
