They are finished and on their way ….

12 Aug

and I am SOOOO happy. I have received MANY invitations myself and I never realised how much ACTUALLY goes into them.

The decisions that are taken before you complete this seemingly simple task, sets the tone for the whole wedding. What colours, what font, what logo ( if any) , what do you wanna say.

Well because I bred 2 x children that are so unique it is frightening. Their uniqueness makes sure I spend a fair amount of my life LOOKING for the things that they dream up…. I go back 22 years.

DS is about to start Grade 1 in a brand new school, so no uniform had been decided but I decided that he should have his own uniform ! So we were going to get little shorts and golf shirts that he can wear each day. Yes, DS says its a great idea, but he wants the golf shirts with the animal on it. So we walked, and walked, but nothing. I didn’t know what he was on about until YEARS later …. it’s the crocodile shirt…. 🙂 oh yes I only have a posh son. He had style and uniqueness way back then !

So wooosh back to today ! I have spent almost 2 days walking the shops looking for a specific ( yes unique) gift that dd has dreamt up for her bridesmaids. I offered … cos dd is working all day… why did I do that ? I dunno. Man it’s impossible to find an idea that hasn’t been made yet ! 🙂

Oh well I guess I will never give up assisting my PAINFULLY unique children I suppose. I made them, right ????

    LOL I actually have a brother who had me take that little alligator off of one shirt and sew it on another when we were younger. I know it’s illegal now, but hey. . . :O)

    And yes, you made them and you can be proud of that. :O)
