Handmade with love



I have been experimenting with making stuff. I just finished making 33 bridal shower invitations for my friend Robyn. I had a hard time getting inspired so I found an Umbrella Bridal Shower design I liked on the April/May issue of Paper Crafts magazine (page 82) and tried to make it my own. The magazine design was in brown and vanilla colors but I needed to change it to beach colors (i.e. aqua, turquoise, sand) because that is the theme and colors of the wedding. I also played with the ribbon and stamps. I am so happy I am done and the invites are on the mail! It took me a week to figure out what the first one would look like. I spent hours in Joann Fabrics, going up and down aisles trying to figure out what material to use. After the first one was done it took me another week to finish all 33. I worked full time Friday night thru Sunday night. Lots of work but done with a ton of love. Good friends make it all worth it!
