    Haha Janet,

     

    I spend hours upon hours (mostly gathering new projects which is bad!!!), researching looking and perfecting.  I love it!!

    Are you excited about your wedding?  I can only imagine how I am going to be in 2 weeks, time is slowly running out.  As for the t-shirts, I created a new design and I am going to get them through vistaprint.  Just waiting on that right time when I can get 50% off again ( I missed the first opportunity).  I started my poms & I am excited about those.  Just have to start my OOT bags....

    My opinion on the shirts is that you can tell they are ironed on and done yourself so if you dont mind that, then they look awesome. However i agree with Tori that you should add some sort of border to the entire image area so it will look like the white background was intentionally there to box things in. Good luck and i hope it works out :)

      If you have any old vista print emails in your inbox they still work!!!! So check it out, if you have an old "50% off t-shirts" or something it will work now even if it says the "sale" is over!

        I never had the 50% off, as I was designing the shirts one evening, they were coming up as such.  I had about 20 or so shirts with my own designs (about 4 different designs) for about $7 a shirt, which I thought was a pretty good deal.

          If anyone needs it, $2 shirts on VistaPrint. Of course you can only order one of each kind for the $2, but hey you can't beat it.  I'm on my third order!!!

           

          Have the link and will share if you ladies are interested.  S/N : I should be working, have a project due in 8 days, LOL

              Not only did I find $2 shirts, I found free shirts and bags and pens and notebooks and notepads and hats and keychains and mugs....OH EMM GEE, I think I just placed 12 orders to VistaPrint, I have lost track of what I ordered, LOL.  I was supposed to be doing work at  home since I didn't do it at work because I was on VistaPrint, I am so horrible.

               

              Well, for me - it is time to start mass printing, all of my wedding weekend events, complete my poms, I have done two, so I feel confident to the rest.  I would love to start my menu fans, yet I am not sure of my ceremony because I haven't heard from the WC at all this week (which is really weird, now that I think of it).  I will complete my escort cards, like mentioned, they are already embossed and tags are cut, wish I had my Cricut to make cute little palms, but I guess I will add those at the end.  I am not sure what else I can do.  Maybe I will order my flowers also, I plan to do those myself also.  Wish I can order my linens, yet I haven't gotten any response on rather I will have retangular or circle tables.  So I am waiting for some things.  Yet beyond that, I have a pretty full weekend of printing and cutting.  I guess I should go buy some more ink...

               

              Wondering ~ will it be less to get Staples or FedEx to print, rather than buy more ink.....I think I may inquire into that.

               

              Well have fun this weekend Janet - pics, pics, and pics!!!!

                It pays to be nice to the copy man, LOL.  This I say because I went into Staples earlier to get a quote of how much it would cost to print out my event invites as well as my welcome letters, trying to compare the cost to me purchasing more ink.  Earlier today, they were $1 a page.  Which wasn't bad, because each page as 2 designs on them.  So I would have came out with about $25, not terrible, about the cost of an XL HP ink cartridge.  So I just came back from Staples, all my invites on ivory cardstock and my welcome letters on pearl and silver shiny paper (don't know the proper term) all for $2.30!!!

                 

                Wow, does it pay to be nice!!!

                      I think its called flirting and being a woman HAHAHA that will get you places sometimes!

                       

                      Its been a good day. My dress is fantastic! i'm in love. I was worried cause i hadnt seen it in a while and starting having these thoughts about hating it when i saw it and tried it on again....SOOO not the case. I love it even more. <3 It was ivory when i tried it and i ordered it in white and its perfect. I also ended up with a veil which i didnt think i would want but it looked so nice. I will only wear it for the ceremony though. I will have to load the pics off my camera and show you :)

                       

                      I decided on my pink shoes too, i had two pairs to pick from LOL

                       

                      BUT the bad news is that it took a lot longer then i thought and then when i got home from my dinner tonight i didnt get a chance to do my projcets so i will be on a mission of my friends house warming brunch tomorrow!! WEDDING WEDDING WEDDING! I will have to get on Vista to check out some stuff but i actually work for a printing company so i use Vista more so for the freebies then anything else LOL
