As I dream of getting organized in the new year, and man I need to get organized I took a look back at my first "Very" organized stamp office. I thought you would like the motivation as well. I can't wait to be settled in one place again for tons of reasons, but on the top of that list is to have a REAL stamp office again. Enjoy this blast from the past... I absolutely loved this office (pics are L-R):

Here are a couple wedding invitations & cards I have a done over the last couple of years. I am really glad I am doing these posts because it reminds me what photos I am missing of my projects. I like to keep my favorite things documented so I can reprise & update them every now and then. Enjoy the wedding themed items I have found thus far!

Friend Angela's "Family" Wedding Shower Invites

Friend Angela's "Friends" Wedding Shower Invites
Friend Leslie's Wedding Invitation
Pocket to the right housed directions, RSVP Card & Envelop, & Hotel Info

Wedding Gift (Tin of Card to for Bride to give husband throughout year)

Inside Tin (Cover Poem below...yes, I wrote it) This box of cards, is for you to give to your man,
During the first year of marriage, the beginning of God’s new plan

Give him a card, anytime throughout this year,
When least expected, with words that are sincere.

Through just a little note, you can brighten his day,
With words of love and encouragement, and thinking of him this way.

The small stuff in marriage equals happiness and success,
Who better to uplift him, then with whom he shares the nest.

So, tell him you love him in every which way,
Even with a little note, on unexpected days.

As I gear up for this new year with all my goals in hand, I wanted to share some of my favorite invitations from the past 7 1/2 years. Invitations are near and dear to my heart and if I had to do one thing it would be those.. I hope you enjoy these posts over the next few days!

Awhile ago I shared with you that I make my Mom's annual "Old Heifer" party invites, I have you intrigued don't I. About 7 years ago My Mom and 8 of her high school girlfriends started getting together once a year to just plain have fun. Somehow early on it got named "The Old Heifer Reunion." Since then their collection of cow's have grown, fun games are have been played, good food has been eaten, and lots of silliness happens!! I have never been invited, but I think I have earned and invite...oh wait I am making them, so maybe I will just make an extra for myself...he he he! Anyhow enjoy this look down memory lane..I am missing 2004's, but I hope to find it soon!
