Day 118 - Sunday 27th April

“Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily” - Sally Koch - author

What small opportunity did you grab by the horns today?

My oldest friend and Zoë’s Godmother is getting married in September and as money is a bit tight for them, I have offered to do her wedding stationery for her. I made samples up the other day and we went over to her house to discuss colours and to pick a final design.

I have never taken on such a big task as although the wedding isn’t going to be huge, I have to make invites for the day and evening, thank you cards, order of services and place name cards. I have managed to come up with a pretty simple design which I just needed to finalise the details. She has changed her colour scheme from burgundy to aubergine so I needed to try and match some card stock to the cravats. She is really easy to work with and was quite happy to go with my suggestions.

I have said I will make one final sample up with the right colours and put all the wording inside and post it to her this week, so this what I am just about to do this afternoon.
After we left her house we went to her local pub for lunch where I had the largest and scrummiest roast dinner I have ever had. I would really like to just go to sleep on the sofa now.

Love the look of the sample on your desk Claire, your friend is so lucky to have you make these for her.
Roast lunch sounded good :)

Lovely thing to do for your friend, it is a great undertaking, I know as I did it all for 2 of my children, but it is also fun!I know they will all be perfect!

It's great to do a job like this but I learnt the hard way that heat embossing on over a hundred invites is a bit time consuming.
