Save it!

I have to do something!

Please so not mistake that statement for anything other than pure excitement! I have been engaged for almost a year now. I have booked all the major things that need booking by this stage, venue, photographer, etc etc. I have bought my dress... sexy little number which shall be arrive in Bonny Scotland in Decemeber. I have thought, planned and researched my way to near insanity at times. But this is the moment I have been looking forward to since that ring was placed on my finger.

I get my chance to be creative. I will be designing my save the dates!

This fills me with so much excitement that little tears are forming in my eyes as I type. Am I a geek? Maybe I am... All I know is that I have always had an interest in graphic design and dabble in it with my job from time to time.

I love the idea of being alone with my lino printing gear and Photoshop, designing a little piece of paper that will announce to the world guest list when I shall marry my all time favourite person.

Thus commences the design process.

Would you like me to post up some drafts of my designs? I could use a little help in sorting the good from the bad, whilst hopefully avoiding the God damn ugly.


  1. Yes please! Do post the designs - love being nosy at other people's stationery - I have a bit of a paper products fetish! And of course, with your credentials, these are going to be pretty special...


    Ps no pressure or anything :-)

  2. haha, thanks Fliss.
    For background info on said credentials pressure paranoia please refer to first post :-)

    I'm kind of over that now... I think

  3. Yes I remembered the first post as I wrote it, so thought I'd better back it up with the no pressure statement!

    Fliss xx
