I'm trying really hard to get these Save the Date cards out. It feels like the final lap in a race, and I just keep plugging along. Really, it's just the first quarter mile, and I'm huffing and puffing. Typical. That's not tequila in that glass, it's a gouache water. Gouache is the best stuff ever--like watercolor but opaque! So you can have any color you ever dreamed of for calligraphy ink.
It's taken 2 evenings so far just to get them addressed. I'm trying to hand-letter them in an effort to practice for the real invites. And I think I WAY under estimated how time consuming it is just to get people's addresses and put them in a simple database. Fellow brides-to-be: Get that part out of the way ASAP!
At least after the STDs are out I'll have everyone's address in one format, in one place, and will be ready to go when the time for invitations comes around. Which I've decided will be after the American Artisan Festival on June 14th. All things must be prioritized or I will certainly lose my mind in the near future. I'm already sort of brain dead. It's like I have so much on my mind that I can't seem to put together sentences when I talk to people I prefer that they talk to me instead. I'm just talking in circles.
