DIY Save the Dates

There has been so much crafting and so little blogging. Here’s my first attempt at changing that.

For all of you who don’t know me personally, I’m recently engaged! We’re working on a pretty low-cost DIY wedding. And oh my goodness there is so much to coordinate. So, to help me stay on track with the planning I’m going to try sharing all the neat things we’re working on.

First up, our Save the Dates! Instead of going through Wedding Paper Divas, which can run you easily $100+ we just designed them ourselves.
