Sizzling Bachelorette Invitations!

So there's no denying it...I'm a Party Girl! I love it all from the planning, the inviting to the partying and the drinking! The invitation totally sets the mood for the party. Take Jackie's Bachelorette invitation. I gave it a "Mission Impossible" vibe. I wanted the girls to feel like this wasn't just "another bachelorette party." This is a Mission and they better be ready to go big! (Click on the image to read the wording. I don't lie, It's pretty cute)
*Tip- The envelope is just as much apart of the invition as the RSVP. I printed each invitation on my computer and added "Top Secret" and "Confidential" as embellishments to get the reciever curious about the envelopes contents. Oh! I also titled each girls invite as "Agent..." Bottom line...their cute!

Cute Bridal Shower Invitations

I'm going to be a bridesmaid! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! (SCREAM!) I've known Jackie since 7th grade when both of our mom's were an hour late picking us up from school. Everything happens for a reason eh? "Thanks Mom!" Now, I'm going to be a bridesmaid in her wedding! Well, this is the girlfriend drooling, grandma approving invitation to her Bridal Shower. I found the invitations at a cute little party store in Costa Mesa, CA called Where's the Party? I made up the rhyme at the top and had them print them for me. I really wanted to hand make the invitations, but being a "creative wanna do it all that I am" I've learned to pull back before I burn out. The price to have these printed saved me a lot of valuable time that I needed to help plan the shower...
*Tip: Some of the gal's on the guest list were out of the country. If you are sending any invites over the blue Atlantic then you need to put $1.20 postage on it. I know! It's a lot! I Just try to imagine my pretty invitation getting a double take from her First class seat while all the other post cards in coach drool over her pen-manship :) Ciao! - Irvina

Quote of the day: "Your best"

Today's amazing quote of the day comes from the amazing Rachel!On the left is her groovin' to the be bop at Sutra. Besides being a hot go-go girl J/K she is also very wise. I don't remember exactly what we were talking about today, but I remember her saying these wise words: "Some people do their best and their best is phenomenal. Other people do their best and their best just sucks, but that's okay because God sees us for who we are." I think that's so stinkin' true. Everyone is so uniquely made. I think if we started looking at people as people instead of "performance vehicles" We would all be more accepting of eachother. What do you think?
