Our purpose in participating in this event was to demonstrate the Do-It-Yourself Approach in hand-making your INVITATIONS as well as many other items to create a very personal look to your wedding.
The most common reaction at our table today was surprise when it was learned that everything on display was hand-made! So many surprised faces! I hope we managed to convey our message that with some basic preparation, ANYONE can whip up invitation sets, and learn some new ways to look at how you can enjoy making all types of projects to help you plan your events - think favours, guest books, decorations, .....if we can think it, we can make it!
It basically comes down to two decisions.....you have money or you have time! And personally, I like to stretch my money to work for me in as many ways as possible....so I make the time!
As a typical Do-It -Yourself person...and listen to this - I hand-made all the projects you saw there today - just this past week! In less time really as shopping for other items to be used (fabric, beads, etc.) took some time. If I can do creative projects in a matter of days - just think what YOU could accomplish in a month or more!
Not only that - but it can be a fun event - grab some friends, we can coach them to using the supplies and with some SIMPLE organization, you can have a party and everyone has fun making YOUR INVITATIONS!
