Where Have I Been?

Excuse time! Muy muy busy!

We had our food tasting at the Disneyland hotel two weeks ago, everything was great. The food is good, the chicken is moist, the cake is, well lets just say my guests might find that they get a box of animal crackers while I try to finish off a three tier cake by myself.

Invitations went out this week! Took us a little bit of time to get them all out. Sensible fiance talked me into using standard postal format for the envelopes, which I thought would be hideous, but turned out to be very plain and stark in a cool way, that totally offset the crazy colorfulness that happens when you open the envelope.

Standard postal format? Apparently the post office got new scanners a year or so ago, and it want all caps, san-serif, large type, no punctuation whatsoever. Looks like this:

FAKEVILLE CA 12345-6789

Anybody who sends out large quantities of mail knows that if you don't follow the format, you get a lot of mail back. We wanted these to get to their recipients. We wanted them to get there fast. They did. Mailed on a Saturday evening from Long Beach California, arrived as far as tiny town Oklahoma on Monday afternoon. Awesome.

Also I bought a Cricut Expression machine. Love It. It cuts paper. Love it. It makes things like this. Out of cut paper pieces you glue together. I love it.

My friend says if you love it so much why don't you marry it? I just might.
