A Science Birthday Party!

The nice thing about having a husband who teaches science, is that we got to use his classroom for our birthday party and it took most of the stress off me, since he conducted most of the experiments (I really had NO idea what I was doing) lol.

I’ll start off with giving you some tips on wedding invitations. Invitations can cost a pretty penny if you plan on hiring a professional to make them for you, so I am going to show you how you can make them for less than 1/2 the price AND if you put the effort into the creativity of them, they can look really amazing. So, to start… here’s our wedding invitations that I designed, printed and put together myself… Continue reading “DIY Rustic Wedding Invitations”
