I obsess about some small stuff… like my DIY invites/rsvps/stds and all that other stuff that involves paper!

Hint: If you have not yet made your monogram you should make it in a pic. program, crop it, and then just add it where you need it by inserting the jpeg.  That is what I did and it was soo much easier than when I tried making it right on the invite.  I just added it and sized it to the invite.

I think the little details are the best.  Its what the perseptive people notice thus knowing how much thought and creativity you put into your special day.  I haven’t actually done any of the DIY stuff but I can’t wait!  I’m hoping to channel Martha Stewarts talent (not so much her personality lol).

YES! It’s the little things that are killing me. Someone said that to me today – “well, if you’ve got the big details taken care of, relax – the rest is gravy”. I was like, are you kidding!?!?!

To me, the little details make the wedding. And I don’t have much control over the larger details, so it’s the little one’s that have our personality, our involvement. That means a lot to me, and therefore I want them to be great. Of course, I’m stressing myself to pieces about it all!

I made my cardbox out of two hatboxes that were rather large, with black and white damask pattern, that I got at Hobby Lobby. I trimmed them with black grosgrain ribbon attached with a hot glue gun and an initial of our last name also purchased at Hobby Lobby. It was honestly one of the easiest projects I’ve tackled, after I had the supplies in hand.
