As detail-oriented as I try to be, some things manage to sneak past me. And when they do, I try to be as relaxed as possible while I let my obsessive compulsiveness run its course.

For instance, I recently printed, cut and hole-punched over 100 direction cards only to find that the ink was a little too bold when paired with the invitation.

Did it ever cross my mind to check such a thing before I got so far into it?

Pffft, of course not.

I could have let this slide, but it irked me so. Even my mother conceded, "Kate, there are those who will never notice. And then there will be a few, who like us, will think, 'Now, that doesn't make any sense.'"

That was all she had to say.

There are now 200 direction cards - half of which will be used as scrap paper.

I certainly got my money's worth out of this $14 project!
  • $4 ream of card stock from a party & paper company close-out sale
  • $10 Martha Stewart doily lace punch on sale at Michael's



  1. Roomie, I am SO impressed... you are such a faithful blogger. I am hopeful that when I am a bride, I too will be able to be obsessive compulsive AND somehow find time to blog about it WITH pictures.

    Or maybe I'll just hire you to do one of the two for me.

  2. I punched ONE of them. I wonder who the lucky recipient will be?

  3. there will be door prizes at the wedding for the lucky recipient!
