Our Save the Date Postcard Scratch-offs




For our save the date cards,  we decided to create postcards with scratch-offs. 
The scratch-offs on the back revealed the date.   We used VistaPrint (http://www.vistaprint.com/) to get the postcard and a family friend was able to give us circle scratch offs to place on the date.   

I also created an electronic save the date for the website for those that we were 
sending electronic invitations to.  I used Adobe Flash and saved it as a movie to upload to the website.
I was not able to upload it for viewing.

BzzAgent ~ Trying new things



I joined BzzAgent about a month ago and accepted a campaign to try some Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner.  A week ago I received a small package with the shampoo. I was so excited to try it.  I am not one to spend a lot of money on shampoo. So I never bought anything that was more that $2.99 or so.

The shampoo and conditioner smell great and have made my hair smoother but I am not sure how it will hold up as a daily use.  I am planning on trying to use it daily for the next 2 weeks to see how my hair is.

If you have used this shampoo let me know how you like it.

A Year of Changes



The past year had a few changes for us.  We finally got married in June and we both got new swim coaching jobs.  I have also completed my teaching degree and am looking for a full time teaching job.  


Crafting was put on the back burner this past year and I finally have the time and energy to begin again.  There are so many projects on my to-do list and pinterest has not helped it at all. 


I will begin to post some of the wedding projects that I did.  Hopefully, it will help someone else. 


Until next time :-)

Sorry about being MIA

Its been a couple crazy months with all the wedding planning and working. Unlike my cats, I have been a busy bee. 

We are under the two month mark and there are a lot of DIY projects that I am finishing up and can't wait to post after the wedding. However, I can post the cards that I made to ask our bridal party to be apart of the celebration.

I used our wedding colors for the cards. The bridesmaids and groomsmen got these cards it also have our monogram in a circle on the front.




On the inside, for the girls I found cute little poems to ask them.  For the guys, Eric found movie quotes that expressed his relationship with each guy.

For some reason, I can not find a picture of the finished product. I know I took some.... o well.

I hope everyone enjoys their Easter weekend. I am crossing my fingers and praying for no snow in Michigan.

Bye for now.
