Crafting Hell

Today, my love of crafting has almost put me over the because I am not really that good at being super crafty yet, and two because I am lacking key information that is leaving gaping holes in my projects.

I really wanted to make A's birthday invitations this year. I mean how sweet would that be to receive a handmade invitation in the mail! Okay, fine, I know what some of you are thinking...who gives a hoot who make the invitations, and trust me I have always ordered invitations, but for some reason...ahem...Pinterest, I just really thought it would be special to make them.

But here is my dilemma. I don't currently have a printer, so how am I supposed to write a cute little birthday message on the invitation to attach to the card I just figured out how to make with my Cricut? And how can you put a 4 inch piece of paper through a printer, even a non-existent one? And then...oh boy, don't get me started.

Okay, fair enough, I will scrap making the invitations that will cost me four times as much in supplies since I have already wasted two sheets of nice cardstock, and focus on making the rest of her Butterfly Birthday a smashing hit!

Now, if I can just figure out how to make those DIY tutu's and lanterns we should be all set :)
