Invitations

August 31, 2008 - 3:32 pm 8 Comments

As many of you know, I enjoy making greeting cards and I have helped many friend design and produce their own unique wedding invitations.  I always knew that I would do the same for myself.  However, I had expected that when I met the man I was to marry that He would live closer than 788 miles away and that we would share many of the same friends.  This was not the case.  As we began to compile the list of friends and family we wanted to join us in our celebrations, I realized that I needed to design something that could be assembled easily.  I would not be layering, stamping, or embellishing.  So I asked a friend to help me design some computer graphics and then Jared and I designed and printed our own unique invitations.

My parents were enlisted to help us assemble, tie the knots, stuff and seal the envelopes.  Thanks for all the help Mom and Dad!

    I am so excited for you! My family and I are planning on attending the Open House at your parents home in Sammamish.

    I have been thinking about you and your family a lot lately. My husband was baptised in June of this year and passed sacrament for the first time this past Sunday.

    Do you have a e-mail address I can reach you at?

    Can’t wait to see you and the cousins!

    Ricki and Isaac

    Congratulations Jared & Erika!!! We wish we could come to one of your many parties but we are in the middle of getting ready to move to Houston and need more minutes in the day at this point.

    God bless you both!

    Congrats Jared – its about time 🙂 Your timing is bad though – Joy and I just planned a 40th b-day trip for me for that weekend, and it wont be to Portland. A little earlier notice and we might have been able to re-arrange things and come out.
    Thanks for the invite!
