Hand Made Invitations

There are times when the best gift to give is something that comes even before the event itself.  Does it sound confusing?  Well I am talking about invitations.  Of course invitations come before the actual event, handed out to guests for earlier announcement purposes.  What makes it ideal is that you get to help the hosts get this out of their list and use their budget allotted for something else.

I remember that time when I made my mom and dad's wedding invitation when they were renewing their vows on their 25th wedding anniversary.  Same thing with my grandma,  also made their invitations as a present.  They were so happy with the personal touch and uniqueness of the invitations I made.  Not only that they saved a lot from having it ordered somewhere else, hey didn't have to worry about it anymore.

For a person who values sentimentality, giving them something hand made will be very meaningful.  It's like an ultimate gift, nothing can beat the thought and effort you put in creating those precious items.  It may require more time finishing everything but in the end the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment is irreplaceable.  While many people might say it's way too impractical to do it yourself since you can easily order everything online, it doesn't really matter as long as you want and love what you are doing.

There are many kinds of invitations and this is not restrictly for weddings alone.  Birthdays, showers, graduations and other parties will always need an invitation or two.  Be creative and express yourself, you have more control when you do it your way.  You must never be restricted with the conventional designs you see everywhere, that's the magic of having it crafted by your own hands.  Don't worry about the imperfections because it is the imperfections that give much character to it.

I am a big time Ebay. I use Ebay anytime that I can. You can usually find everything that you need for half of the price. Sometimes people get frustrated with Ebay because you do have to spend time looking through the auctions, but I really enjoy getting a deal and looking for a deal. I have been using my clear wireless internet to search eBay for the perfect Vintage Hamilton watch for my husband. He collects the watches and I really like them. I like anything vintage. I was reading through an antique book and saw the Hamilton Doctor’s Watch. It has two faces, one with a clock and one with a timer. They were produced from 1931 until 1949. Ebay is really the best place to find one. The other day after months of searching, I came across one in nearly perfect condition. It even had a buy it now price and a good rate. I immediately bought it. I was perfect when it came in the mail. I just can’t wait until my husband’s birthday so that I can surprise him with it. I think that he is really going to love it.
