what a great post :) i hate that i only check in a couple of times a year now... i used to love visiting your blog back in the "scrapbooking" years. the other day i was wanting some of those embroidery patterns you used to design too... loved everything you designed! anyways... i remember those days of the "artistic, indy" scrapper. i followed people like katie refers to in her comment. there was a great little community of "rebel" scrapbookers. loved it! i never really got the "in crowd" of scrappers, so the more gritty, say-it-like-it-is people were my thing for sure. i still have lots of supplies and even hoard the old sassafras and bam pop supplies for the day when i have time to get back to it. i tried the pocket page thing as well, but life is usually too busy. i totally feel you on the perfectionist thing... i am always so concerned with not having everything "just so", so i don't ever get around to posting on my blog or listing a new design in my etsy shop because i have to wait until its perfect, or worse yet, until I AM perfect.. i love that you and katie both went for it when it came to doing what you want to do. i went about things completely backward as far as what i really want to do... i have always wanted to get a degree in graphic design, but never had the chance to. i started a family very young (18) and i have made that my priority my entire life. i never went to college (unless you consider beauty school college) and now i am feeling regret. i turned 40 this year, and i am finally beginning to realize that i REALLY truly want to go to school for graphic design. currently i have an etsy shop and design vintage inspired invitations, favors and other paper for events; programs, place cards, etc. i have never taken a class in graphic design and i feel like I've been "faking" it all this time. the etsy shop was supposed to be a hobby at first, but then as i got new requests, i never said no to anything and started figuring out how to make them happen. its been crazy. now with my 2 oldest finding their own way in the world (19 and 21) and my baby boy (8) in school full time, i am starting to see that i just might be able to fulfill that desire to learn graphic design properly... better late than never? maybe :) its pretty rad to think that all of this creativity; the scrapbooking, craftiness, design; all of it is a common thread, no matter what age or stage in life we are at... if you have the need to create, somehow your life just finds things to fill that need, even if its just a substitute for where you're going to ultimately end up. we find those things to hold us over until we get to where we are meant to be :) or maybe they are just springboards to get us to the next stage in our journey.... I've got to stop myself from the babbling now! thank you ladies for getting my mind turning :) bummed i only found this 3 months later though! good luck with your studies katie and keep doing what you're doing michelle. you are inspiring :)

so sorry suzanne! i didn't see your comment right away! the invites are mailed in long slim boxes or, in this case, the customer handed them out personally instead of mailing. i offer them in sets with boxes in my etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/165979714/alice-in-wonderland-wedding-invitation?ref=shop_home_active
