    Oh I forgot.. I also ordered OOT stuff from OTC and a luau website. I don't have final numbers yet, but I figure 24 is a good average so I based what I bought on that number.. especially since OTC stuff is sold in dozens. Heh.

    And an FYI.. I have NEVER scrapbooked before. I have no idea how creative I can/will be so this is going to be a huge different project for me to accomplish.. hopefully it doesn't look too cheesy.. haha

      Carrie a $1 per bag to be screen printed is really good, you got a whole bunch of family connections. thats great
      I'm trying to talk him into getting on the forum! I gave him the link and he looked around. I'll post pics of my bags once they are done. I figure he can work up some price that is good for everyone and maybe do some printing for all the brides to be. He has his own equipment but no "official" business yet.

      Soon I will get to post wedding pics, figure I should get some more Philip in first!

        He should definately join the forum when he's ready. He could get a ton of business on here, especially since he did your bags, and i'm sure you'll post how great yours came out.

              My new mantra is One day at a time...one thing at a time.

              I went to the doctor to tell her how frazzled I felt all the time, she said make a list and make your goal to be one thing to get done at a time. It can get overwhelming!

                I got started on stuff right away while I was on Mat leave so I wouldn't get frazzled trying to do it all after going back to work. I am so glad I started early, since I still have a lot to do, but I have a lot done. Well, I have to go and get measured to order my dress and my daughters dress now!!! One more thing to tick off.

                  Just paid off the trip, yikes that hurt! I think I am in pretty good shape. Got my response envelopes printed. The invitation envelopes are giving me a problem in the printer, they are getting stuck. any suggestions? I had to order more.

                    Crossed two things off my list last night - went for my first fitting and found my veil! My sister (MOH) got her dress so that is another thing done!

                    I also found this great site for cups with a custom logo - Spirit Supply Store. You only have to order a minimum of 50 and they are $1.30 each with free shipping and your logo on both sides.

                    I will let you know how those turn out!

                      that's really trip for customized cup, esp with the logo on both sides. great deal.

                      steph - do you feel great paying off the trip? My final payment is due Sept 5th, im still trying to decide how to pay it.
