WOYWW - 148

Ahem, you won't see my desk as clean and tidy as this very often:
Taken just before I ran away yesterday afternoon to have a break. Working on repetitive makes is likely definitely going to end up with my mind wandering (not hard!) and mistakes.

It's only 80 wedding invitations, 50 folded ones that I'm doing first ready for the inserts as the bride and groom haven't finalised the wording as yet. Then 30 evening function ones just in postcard style. Colours are aubergine and white and each of the 80 envelopes will have a little swirly heart stamped on the back in aubergine :)

Lots of threading diamante hearts onto ribbon to do, but first it's measuring, cutting and layering.

For much more exciting things to see, do hop over to Julia's here and thence other desks, floors, dining tables, trays and beds - even my little white fluffy 'screen duster doggie' looks fed up and a bit bored :)

Crumbs, this 'burning the midnight oil' lark means I hopped in at number 12 this week!

Happy WOYWW!

  3. yep, I recognize those wedding invitations when you first talked about them. The colors and style are really pretty - the little heart really adds a nice elegance!

    Not linking in this week. Today got here way too quickly for me.

    Hugs,

    Well, no more lost coffee mugs on my table, I had quite a clean out--we'll see how long it lasts!

  5. I don't think i could do repetitive tasks either, I would want to start wandering from the brief and sticking random bits on here and there. I struggle when anyone asks for a copy of a card I have made lol. A very tidy desk too and wonder if it will still be as tidy tonight lol. Hugs, Amanda x

  9. Hi there, fellow early birder!! LOL. I don't normally stay up that late but I just clicked on at random and there it was with Sarah at No 1 again - how does she do it??
    You are good, doing all those invitations - I just know that I'd lose the will to live after 15....
    Like your duster doggy! Think we need a close up of him next week :)
    Hope you are well!

  23. I'm staring on wedding invites myself Di when my hands warm up. My glass top desk doesn't help. Time to get out the table warmer I think.
    Happy Easter.

  29. Ah the smell of burning oil and repetitive work, definitely invitation time! Ah they're looking great Di, majorly worthwhile gal!

  30. I love the color on those invitations! I definitely know about repetitive stuff and needing those breaks! Happy WOYWW #31

  31. You look super organised, Di and the stationary looks gorgeous.
    Is that sunshine catching your mat there, not much of that to be had here today in the withering North. We've had a howling gale and snow. What happened to Summer, is it over?
    Hope you have a lovely Easter if I don't manage to get back again this week.
    Hugs Lisax

  32. Very nice and neat, invites look good. It is all very well designing invites, when you are just doing a one off for the sample, it is when you have to do loads that you wish you had never started.

  34. I know what you mean about repetitive card making - boring with a capital B!! They do look rather nice tho!
    Trust you to have a pink laptop!!
    Hope you are over the shock of my desk being tidy!!

  35. Good morning Di. Hope you are getting some pretty mornings like mine.
    Actually I quite like assembly-line jobs now and then. I set it up as a series of tasks, turn on music/radio/podcast, make tea (or something more interesting if it's late in the day) and GO! Very satisfying. The invitations sound very attractive.
    Happy week,

  36. Hello Di, had to visit you before turning in. I think making anything more than once would have me heading for the hills though love the colours and the invitation does look lovely. Hope you had a great day despite the repetitive task. Elizabeth x #147

  41. Hi Di

    That wedding work looks fantastic!!

    Love the aubergine.

    I am in the middle of 120 order of service booklets .. .. pages and covers and cutting out for decoration taking up far too much space LOL!!!

    Love Jules xx

  43. great looking desk Di. Your wedding cards are nice even if they seem a bit tedious to you! Hope you have a great Easter. Vickie @60

  44. That's a nice card factory you have going there. That is the best way to mass produce even if it is a little mind boggling. Keep it up, a little at a time and it will be done before you know it.

  45. Funny you should mention Wedding invites. I'm busy making paper roses (100 of the blighters to exactly match the purple ribbon on the invites that Fluff made for her Bruv's nuptials at the end of this month. Burning the midnight oil as I type and after that I've got the ring cushion to make.
    Hugs Mrs A.

  46. Such beautiful invites!!!
    Have a wonderful week!

  47. I am not sure I would be the best to do a complete set of wedding stationary, as I don't much like repeating anything I have made before. It has to be slightly different, which is not what is wanted for a job like that. They are really very pretty, especially with the little hearts. Hope you manage to take a break from them over Easter. Have a good week. xx Maggie #9
