Lunch & Gyoza Making Party

I had my friend Ande over for lunch and gyoza making.  Together we made 68 gyoza dumplings.  We both kept 31 (we cooked up 6 just to make sure they were good).  Turned out pretty delicious.

our wedding invitations

So I thought I'd share our wedding invitations on here since I spent a lot of time on these and I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I blurred out some information (kind of scared me a little to share all the details online).  I ended up designing these myself, using the silhouettes (this post is from 2009!) I took of us when Chaz and I first starting dating.  I took the silhouettes, decorated them with lace, paper, dried flower, twigs, twine and embroidered our wedding date then photographed that and edited the image and added the text on my computer.  I used this on-line printer for the invitations and RSVP cards which turned out nicely.  Their uncoated paper is pretty nice and they aren't too expensive.  I printed the direction cards at home on card stock to save some money and had my wonderful sister in Florida address them all since her handwriting is a million times better than mine.  It was the prefect touch!  Overall I'm happy with the design and I'm glad I stuck with it.  It's very 'us' and in the end that's all I really wanted.

In a little less than three months I will be marrying this man.  I truly can't wait.  My heart swells just thinking about it.
