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 :-)
