This year I did not make Maya’s invitations – an almost guilty declaration – but you will see why! A few ideas crossed my mind about what I would make, and then time seemed to slip away with the other handmade items on the agenda (the wrist gloves, and another project I plan to complete tomorrow) – it seemed like a good idea to purchase some. I went straight to ETSY as it is a super source to find handmade items when you do not want to make them yourself. Very quickly I found some invitations that fit Maya’s chosen theme of ‘Fancy Rose’ at Paper Nosh – Etsy is so GREAT! Purchase package complete with envelopes, and sealing stickers – it made doing the invites very easy. They arrived beautifully wrapped and boxed – some sellers take such pride in their products, it is a pleasure. I left the un-opend invitations on the table and when Maya woke in the morning she saw the lovely pink garden toil package. I was awoken with a kiss from a very happy little Girl. Quickly they were, opened, inspected, and addressed. We loved the quality, beautiful heavy paper stock, printed on the front, interior and back with detailed images, and decorated with fine glitter. I was very proud of Maya as she happily went to work writing in them all – before breakfast!
