Most of you have probably seen my email announcing our new designer, Gena Glover!
We are so fortunate that she has decided to spread her wings and teach at BMS - her first class is already coming up on July 7th! Welcome, Gena! I sent an email a few days ago with her class information. I'll get it put up on the website after I finish this post. If you didn't see the email, check your junk/spam folders and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want it resent. It's an altered cigar box and it's cute with a capitol Q!.
Many of you know that after a few years of ups and downs, my daughter is expecting. I have a granddaughter coming in August! Like most of you, I couldn't bear the idea of store bought shower invitations. As important as my daughter Liz is to me, I had to do something special. So I designed an invitation:
Maybe not the greatest picture but you get the idea. Therm-o-web foiling, Tonic foil sheets, embossing, die cutting, etc. I love how it turned out, especially since it's designed to lay flat for mailing. I only hope the recipients get that you have to open it up in to a box......? I didn't think 25 invitations was a lot.....until now. With the help of my BMS family, I've been working on prepping these for a WEEK. Just today I finished all the little pieces and parts and started to construct the boxes. I have 5 blank boxes and a gazillion little pieces so far. So, my friends, how many times have you said "What was I thinking?" LOL.
Still, even though it's a lot of work it's out of love. I have just one child and one grand baby so I just want it to be nice.....and Liz is the most gracious and grateful recipient I know.
So this is my week ahead!
What are ya'll working on?
Lots of Love,
