Invititations are DONE!!!

Tonight was quite eventful. Jonnine (the bride) came over to give me the last 53 addresses to complete my task of doing her wedding invites. Then she decides she wants to wax seal the back of all 160 something invitations...That was a chore but we got them done with no wax to spare. I wish I could have recorded how many times I burnt the shit out of my fingers. That crap is harder than it looks but I am now a professional Wax sealer. We sealed every one of those invitations with 8 sticks of wax for a grand total of 3.25 hours straight. **taking a bow**
I do not want to see that crap for a long time. So please don't ask....j/k

This was before greta got her groove on:

Yeah don't laugh...

This is the finished product AFTER getting my groove going and an assembly line going:

Now that's what I call a wax seal.

Then I got this wild hair up my arse to let's go ahead while I was on a roll and get the table toppers knocked out:

I just added some prima flowers to spice it up because it sure was bland. (This is my fav)

Various toppers around the reception tables:

Pictured here are just 3 but I did about 23 front and back have quotes and things regarding weddings from a Quotables book and of course I had to add the flowers once again.

A random topper that I spiced up also:

This one is my 2nd favorite.

total time spent tonight was 6 hours doing everything but they are COMPLETE! WOOOO HOOO BABY! Now I can rest and not be so grouchy or as Melana says Grunchy.

Quick recap:

5 different fingers burned with wax about 10 times
Over 100 invites and envelopes printed, stuffed, and wax sealed
1 invite that has to be redone because I messed the seal up so horrific it was just no saving it. (Very first one I did)
1 pedicure done on my crusty feet. It had been 10 weeks since they were done. That is just unacceptable.

Folks I leave you with this pic for your viewing pleasure. Don't be jealous my piggies are looking better than yours these days....BWHAHAHAHA!
