A slave to my invitations...

...is really all that I am these days. I realize I haven't blogged in 11 days and that is just unacceptable! Basically, when I am not working, unpacking our house, or watching UK lose a basketball game to some crappy team, all of my time is spent working on our invitations. Naturally, I went the DIY route. I created the design and then had them printed on a nicer printer and I have been working nonstop on assembling them since then. I haven't even completed step one. But, nevertheless, I am going to share some sneak peeks with my lovely readers! A lot of our invitees read my blog, so I can't show them completely until they are mailed out on April 1. If that day ever comes. Anyway, here are some snippets of what has caused me to be a horrible and neglectful blogger:




So there you have it. Step 1 is about 90% complete at this point and I should be able to move onto something else later this evening. Then it should be smooth sailing from there! I will be sure to share more pictures as I make more progress. Wish me luck!

I am currently working on my invites too!! I am trying to determine the best way to affix the invite to the cardstock backing....have you found anything that works well?! Double sided tape squares are cutting it for me.

Good luck with your invites....I can't wait to see how they turn out!

p.s. loved the UK comment, it's so sad...
