This is turning into a nightmare!

OK, not really a nightmare, just a really huge pain in the rear!
We ordered all of our VBS materials, only to not receive two of the crafts.
When we inquired about it, we were told they were all sold out. Great.
We were told of two other places which offered similar crafts, but yep, also sold out.
So, I have to figure out what we're going to do. The crafts are pretty specific to the days lesson, so it'd be nice to stay with that idea.
It is also easy to over order from the VBS place because they sell them in sets of 10. Anything unopened can be returned. The other crafts I'm finding seem to sell in sets of 24. We'd never be able to return anything, and likely be stuck with too many crafts. Then there is the issue of money. We've already gone over our budget. Our treasurer is going to love us when we start bringing separate receipts in. Originally, the church was charged directly, but these other things we will have to get.
I'm not even mentioning the decorations that we have to buy.
Yep, he's going to be very pleased with us. Note the sarcasm!
Oh well, it will all end up good in the end, I just have to figure out these dumb crafts.
If by chance, you are doing the Power Lab VBS and have run into the same trouble, could you let me know what you're doing about it?? Thanks!

Oye, that does sound like a nightmare. Sorry, I can't help you out. Our church didn't do VBS this year.

BTW, I like the song selections on your blog-all of them.
