Time Flies!!

It's been months and months since the last time I posted!  Lots has happened since then, and I'm excited to get back into the flow of documenting some of my creative pursuits.  

First of all.... we're having a new baby girl!  She will be due December 24th... perfect time for cozy handmade knit things!  

This summer we hosted a French student who was studying English at the University of Delaware.  He was a wonderful houseguest and I couldn't have been more happy with the experiences we've had this past month with him.  We were all very sad to say goodbye this morning.

But we have plenty to look forward to... Saturday I am hosting a bridal shower for my sister, who is getting married in September.  It will be an outdoor brunch at my parents house.  My youngest sister and I have been doing some crafting for things such as invitations, guest book, favors, etc.  So today, I'm going to show you the invitations.

My engaged sister lives in Massachusetts, so we decided to use a theme of sea glass.  My hubby helped me print the information on the cards, and my sister and I personalized them with a little seashore prep style.  We used a navy grosgrain ribbon (that matches our bridesmaid dresses) against sea glass colored stationery.  We added a silver sea star stamp and were very happy with our simple, but lovely, invitations.
