I Can Make That......

A new email from Shelby! This time it contains a picture of a beautiful really does look alot like the one I had pictured in my mind! Of course she said she hated the Eiffel Tower!!!!! My gosh, she IS my child.....and she didn't get switched at birth! Phew!!

I really do love this style of invitation. And, according to Shelby, we will be making them ourselves! Now Shelby's idea of making them is ordering the papers and taking them to Kinko's for cutting and putting them together. On the other hand, my idea is to cut each piece of paper, print the information in her favorite font and then carefully glue all of the parts and pieces and....TAH DAH!

I don't know why I'm like that, but I isn't the issue of money, although we do tend to be frugal in our family, even if it isn't necessary! I've just always looked at things and asked myself if I could make it myself.....but you must understand that I just love the whole process! I wouldn't want to miss out on a single second of the whole production. When I have things done for me, I'm usually disappointed.....I don't think anyone can make it look just like I picture it in my head. I've ordered flowers from a florist and then rearranged them....I've had a function catered and wished I'd done it all myself! It's a family joke that "I can make that..." should be the epitaph on my headstone....when we go to the art festivals and shows I walk through the whole thing saying just that.....and you know what, I know that I can....and I'd have fun doing it! I can't explain why I'm that way, but I am.....and I love every second of it!!!

  1. Okay, so we'll make the invites ourselves...100% from scratch...just don't be surprised if you get six giant packages in the mail a week before the invitations are supposed to be mailed filled with the materials for my invites that have *somehow* been fed through an industrial strength paper shredder! ;)
