Save the date cards: the end of me?

I know a lot of people make their own paper goods for their weddings. It’s a sure-fire way to get exactly what you want , but most certainly not a way to save any money. With all the papers I’ve bought and various other supplies, I think I’ve spent far more than if I’d just ordered them, but who cares? I’m getting what I want. Today though, I wanted to scream working on them!! My printer decided to try and eat my vellum paper, then decided that it couldn’t detect it as paper at all, then it got stuck in the rollers. I’ve decided that as pretty as it is, vellum is the DEVIL. And add Microsoft Word to that list as well. So long, boring story short, I ended up having to half beat my printer, to hand feed the vellum and having to save the file as an Adobe Acrobat file rather than a Microsoft Word one, I have my lovely result, as seen below. I’m pretty happy with it. Now all I have to do is make like 49 more without screaming and without keeling over. Thankfully, we have pleanty of time to do this. I just have to keep reminding myself of that, especially considering I’m sitting here looking at the blank cardboard boxes that will eventually be our centre pieces, and a ton of papers that will be covering them. One step at a time... one step at a time. I just have to breathe. Anyway, freak-out over for the moment. Off to work more on the “save the date” cards. They have to go out soon and I really need them to just be done.
