Reason 1 - Where my time has gone

Things have been crazy around here for the past few months, as you know with the lack of postings. It seems that with chasing after the kids and all the other things I was obligated to do, I just didn't have a whole lot of free time. This project is one of the reasons for the lack of free time. I have been working on this bunch of wedding invitations - 165 of them to be exact. My hubby's cousin is getting married and she asked me - what an honor - to design and make all of the wedding invitations. I was so excited that she asked and got busy designing a few samples for her - I will eventually post them as time allows (keep reading and you'll find out why I say this). Since she has finally gotten them out in the mail I think it is ok to share them with you.

Here they are in all their glory!

Hayley is a very simple type of gal and her tastes are very similar to mine, so it made designing her invites super easy. The one she chose was the first one I came up with. We modified it a bit to fit her budget. The orignal was a folder, but to save a little on costs we went with the pockets on the back of the invite to hold the few things she was sending with it. Please note that the picture shown is of my wonderful babies, she placed a picture of her and her fiance in it's place. I think the whole thing turned out really cute. Let me know your thoughts.

So my posting will not be regular (as it took me almost a day to publish this one) for a little while longer as, I guess, I did such a great job on Hayley's invites, that my brother-in-law's fiance has enlisted me to do their wedding invitations as well - 224 of them. They are a little more detailed than Hayley's and I will show it to you once I get them finished and Muneeba has sent them out. Until the next post - take care and happy stamping!

Ben's First Day of Preschool

Sniff, sniff. . .

Today was Ben's first day of Preschool. I once again found myself weeping! I thought that it would be a little easier since we just went through Alexa's first day of Kindergarten, but nope - I cried all the way home. Lucky for me he only goes for 2-1/2 hours on Tuesday's and Thursday's. So tomorrow I will have him all to myself once again!

Muneeba & the Kids

Muneeba came by to help work on her wedding invites and Ben & Alexa kept themselves occupied by playing dress-up. I am sure Ben will love these pictures when he is older!

A thought

At church on Sunday this verse was highlighted and I just can't seem to get it out of my head. I think we all should keep it in mind throughout each day.
