i'm working on some balance in my life and i'm learning that it's a slow process.
in the meantime, though. i've been plotting. planning and throwing some parties of pure awesomeness.
to get back into the swing of things, here's a little introduction to one of my latest projects.
i'm throwing a halloween party with a friend. it's a haunted house themed party.
the party isn't until this weekend but, i thought i'd give you a sneak peek. here are the spooky, scary invites that we sent out a few weeks ago.
because it's a haunted house party, we really wanted to make the invite detailed. so we crafted a letter/story to explain why/how the house is haunted. we made them look even spookier by aging the paper with tea and burning the edges, and then sealing it with some sealing wax. to look even more cool, i sealed the wax with the prong-y part of the skeleton keys. *ps. this entire process was super messy. super stinky, and slightly dangerous. thankfully, we managed to not burn down my house. phew.
also included in the invite was a key. with instructions to bring the key with them to the party. mwhahahahaha...
we found these super cool skeleton keys in the dollar bins at michaels,attached a little tag with the phrase, "your presence is key" stamped on it and placed the key on a little bed of moss (dollar store).
did i mention that it all came delivered in a freaking cool coffin? because, it did. shush. i know, i get it. i'd want to come to the party, too.
anyway. this week is full of party prep. and blog catch-up. plus. a HUGE announcement coming. soon very very soon.
