Amy's baby shower

Ron is off today on a road trip with his friend, Chuck. That leaves me home to have just a day to do whatever I darn well please. Hmmm... what to do, what to do...

Although I have plenty of housework to do (laundry, vacuuming, dishes, etc.), I think I'm going to just play around in my craft room and decide what kind of invitations I'm going to make for Amy's baby shower. Her shower will be on September 24, so I have about six weeks to get them all finished so I can get them in the mail. Once I decide what design to make, and make the first one, it will really just be an assembly line to get the rest of them made. I think I want either a stair-step invitation or an easel-style card, with lots of pretty baby bling. I think I will keep them a secret from Amy until I have at least the first one (that I'm happy with) finished.

I'll be making the envelopes, too so I think I will need most of the six weeks to get them done.

After all, I have to please the most difficult customer.

ME!

I'm never satisfied with my work and I want everything about the shower to be just perfect. Amy has waited so long to find the man of her dreams and to have a baby (Isaiah is eight now), that I want her to really have this special time.

It will be very, very pink. I want a 3-D cake (saw some really cute ones at the grocery store but a co-worker's sister-in-law also does cakes, so will ask her about them) that is all typically baby girl style.

I so agree with you Teresa. You don't want to spend this special time doing boring housework!! I can quite understand how you want everything to be perfect for Amy's baby shower. I'm sure your invitations will be wonderful, as you are so talented with things like that. How lovely that Amy has now found a man to love and is now going to be having a new baby. (And a lovely little granddaughter for you and Ron!).

Boring housework or fun crafty stuff......such a hard decision but I agree the fun crafty stuff would win out I have a bad habit of starting on thing then think I really should unpack the dishwasher or something like that and will get up and go and do that then go back to what I was doing such as blogging or writing letters..........the invitations you described sound cool would love to see the finish product when you have it done.....
