I realized that I forgot to post the pictures of the finished invitations. They took forever but I'm glad I decided to do them myself. I gave myself a little credit by putting a 'handmade by' stamp on the back. The little rhinestones took forever and some fell off in the mail. The post office was not supposed to put them through the machine which is why I spent 98 cents per stamp but they did anyway. I blame the rhinestone mishap on them!
I bought 20 yards of muslin and my mom helped me hem the edges. It turned out really nice. I then blew up a monogram at Kinko's for a few bucks. I traced it onto the runner about 10 ft. from one end. I started to paint it black. It's very tedious! I think it'll turn out nice though.

Four months later......my invitations are ready to go to the post office. I made them by hand and have been working on them for soooooooooo long. I will be posting a 'how to' with pictures later but I wanted to share my wonderful news now!
