    Thank you so much for the encouragement ladies!! I really means a lot. You’re right I think it’s the pure quantity that is getting me down. I haven’t asked any of my sisters or BM to help because… well I’m pretty picky… I know beggars cant be choosers, but I did my sisters baby shower invitations (like 60) and my Mom and sisters came over to help assemble them…. Well lets just say there were quite a few imperfections that would not have been there if I had done them myself. Now don’t get me wrong, mine are not perfect, but I am very aware of every mistake I can usually cover or incorporate it.

    OK, I’m going to get back on the ball. Thanks again for all of your kind words and encouragement. I think you guys are the only ones that really understand.

      Very pretty! Your guests will be very impressed!
      I agree with trying to get your BMs to help, will be worth all the work.

          Davina, those are amazing! How could you not love them? I am sure you are just tired of putting them together, but I think they came out perfect and you should be very proud!

                Davina, I think they look F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S!!!! They don't look homemade at all! There is so much detail, and the colors look great. The pink and gold together is really chic. Great job....don't get discouraged....you have 20 down, and plenty of time to get the rest done. You will feel such great accomplishment when they are all mailed and done. Take a little break after every set of 20....before you know it they will be off your list.

                  I think they look great! I can tell you from the experience I had making my invites that I thought they looked great when I did 1 or 2, but after looking at them and making 100 of them, I didn't tlike them as much in the end....I think it was just because I was sick of looking at them! Now I look back and love them again.

                  Your guests will love your invites and they will appreciate all the work you put into them. Don't second guess yourself! :)

                    They look great. The embossing is amazing, i like how you have two colors and it really looks like sand, very beachy. I don't think you should stress yourself out by thinking of staring over, these are perfect. Maybe you could do one step at a time, like doing all the embosing over one weekend and then all the punch outs the next. Good luck.
