For the past two years I have put my graphic design skills to use making invitations for the baby and wedding showers of our friends. Each invitation I create is a little more awesome than the invitation before, making me feel a sort of guilty for the first few invitations lack of perfection.
Our friends Natalie and Jason are having their first baby in July and, as has become custom, I offered to make their shower invites. I used the theme (pandas) and colors (avocado and peach) of the nursery to guide the design and then packaged them in sharp black linen ponchettes and avocado envelopes. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to purchase a sticker maker so I could create custom labels. Let me tell you, this bad boy is about the greatest invention on earth! Everything and everyone in my immediate vicinity should be prepared to be labeled with cute, custom designed labels… Do you hear that, cats?
