I'm in the middle of doing this:







All 200 of them!

These are the labels for the wedding invites envelopes (yes, the relentless bride finally found ones that fit!). There are nearly 200 names that I have to write and I'm still halfway. I also wasted a LOT of labels as some of my cursives looked weird and made some letters look different (like some of the C's ended up looking like E).

It would have looked much better if I wrote them directly on the envelopes but the ones the bride found that fit the invites has a metallic sheen to it, making it hard for ink to be absorbed properly. So we had to settle for stick-it labels. (The bride also had to settle with the envelopes- it's scented and has a diamond pattern, both of which she hates but she has no choice).

On another note...



Mom's biopsy results showed that the mass excised fro her abdomen was just an abscess that got infected. When the doc said "We have nothing to worry about..." I nearly cried in relief. Thank you, Lord! And thank you to all of you who sent words of prayer, comfort and assurance my way.

To those who left comments:

@ trifaith: I don't really scrap much layouts nowadays but you're right, that pic simply encapsulates what we (the Mom and me - or is it Mom and I?) were feeling that time. Thank you for the prayers!

@SimplySarah: How right on the dot you are with "crazy busy". To keep me going (and sane) I keep saying to myself "Just a couple of weeks more" over and over again! Thank you for the warm thoughts, and I'll soon get around to posting a tutorial part 3 once all this brouhaha is over.

@Tammy and Shelby: Thank you for the best wishes! Check your email later on today or tomorrow :-)

@Pom: Thank you Pom! Check your email later on today or tomorrow too!

@PaMam: You're so sweet! Thank you. Let's wait and see if I do survive this wedding hehe.

@SassyIndy: Salamat sa pinadala mong email! Ipinakita ko kay Mommy and she's so pleased (Catholic sya, Baptist ako at Dad ko hehe). Kumusta na? Email ka naman dyan!

PS> the labels look gorgeous. Your handwriting is superb! You should get it made into a font. I would use it EVERYDAY!!!

@Christina: Ugh! Let's just say I won't be writing much in the next few days. My fingers are sore!

@Tammy&Shelby: Hi Tam! Hehe...I don't feel too confident about turning my handwriting into a font! But thank you so much!!

@the3chickens: Thanks! By the time I reached 50 names, I wanted to pull my hair out and scream "why didn't we just print these out????" hehe...
