oh happy day

So many reasons why this is a happy day:

1.  It is my first day of winter vacation. Two whole weeks of sleeping in as late as I want!!

2.  I'm lying on the couch listening to the lovely rain outside.  This is the 4th day in a row of rain and it is supposed to rain two more days!  So happy.

3.  The biggest reason of all????  My wonderful husband and I celebrated Christmas on Saturday and he surprised me with a glorious new MACBOOK AIR!!  I absolutely love, love, love it.  He spoils me rotten.

biggest project yet

Hi everyone!  I've missed this place!  I've been so busy for awhile that I wasn't getting on here.  Then we both got sick and it seems like all I needed was sleep!  In the time that I was gone, I completed the biggest project I've done yet.  I made 210 invitations for a client's sweet sixteen masquerade ball in New York.  It was fun to come up with something different but of course the best part was the fact that they were so happy with the product.

I couldn't have completed this huge project without the help of my wonderful husband - thank you, Matt!  We had a ton of fun but by the end, my fingers were definitely feeling a little swollen and chapped.

I wish I took more pictures of the process but I was on such a roll that I didn't stop to do it.  Here is what the invitation looked like.


It's kinda hard to tell but it had a lot of layering of paper, ribbon, and feathers.  Very masquerade ball-esque.  

Wrapping up and packing all of the invitations...  


I took this with my phone and you can't even tell how many packages there were there.  

It felt so good to accomplish something so big - I know it's not a huge order for a normal business but for a one woman show, it was!
