First Birthday Invites

I'm trying to do "simpler" blog posts more often. So, here's one: I finished Tessa's birthday party invites today and I think they look sweet as pie. I've been really into sewing on paper recently. (See my post-Christmas thank you notes.) A mere 11 days before her party, but at least it's done! I cut out a million fabric triangles and used card stock and envelopes I already had, thus spending nothing more than postage. I'm trying to keep everything else pretty "budget" too. This planning-a party-for-a-kid thing is really a stupid amount of fun. I figure this is the only year I get to do exactly what I want with her party, too, instead of asking her what theme she wants. My theme is LOTS OF COLOR and BUNTING. :-)
