Happy Friday, y'all! What a whirlwind of a week (or two, for that matter)... Not only am I completely in the busiest time of my work-year as an invitation designer, but I have busy big kids who are have spent the week at track meets and baseball practices in addition to packing for 8 days on Spring Break mission trips. Two out of three of them are on their way to serve in different locations. So that's two pack lists, two different climates, two different departure times, two different departure locations, and one crazy mom. Here's the recap of my week in phone pics. Here we go!
In the last three weeks, I have ordered imported Thai silk boxes, individual Swarovski crystals, pearl and rhinestone buckles, crystal buttons, hand-made patterned envelope liners, shipping boxes, bubble mailers, ribbon, 500 yards of adhesive tape, kraft labels, scalloped labels, custom stamps, and twine. I have been in regular contact with three calligraphers, an illustrator in Savannah, a printer in Maine, a printer in Massachusetts, a supplier in Colorado, and brides from Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Arkansas, and New York. Remember that part about being the "busiest time of my work-year"? I'm winded just from typing all of that. Whew.
Y'all please be praying for Grace and Luke (who is serving in inner-city Memphis) and all of the other teenagers, families and adults who are on mission trips this week. And I hope everyone has a safe Spring Break - whatever your plans! I'll see y'all back here Monday! xo
