Checking it off my list

I love making to do lists and then checking things off as they are completed.  One thing looming large on my list was a set of 60 birth announcements and I'm happy to say that I completed the project and gave them to the new parents so they can get them in the mail.

When I make large quantities of an item it's always fun to stack them all up and see the whole project in one spot.  Very satisfying!

The request was for birth announcements that were a single page and fit into a 4" x 5" envelope.  I was fine with that, in fact it was great to have a smaller size, but it did require some trial and error to get all of the wording to fit, and it didn't leave a lot of room for extra embellishments.  That was fine too, because the little stinker is so cute that I didn't want to take away from the adorable photo!  Here's the finished product:

Now that I have crossed that project off my list I really need to get some new items made and listed in my Etsy shop.  I haven't added anything new and I'm excited that I have time to create some new items.
