I rarely wear makeup and usually wear my hair up in a ponytail...so I was pretty nervous about getting my trial done!  I found Appease, Inc. on WeddingWire.com - and Carla was very quick to respond and very helpful!  So, while I was back in IL for a long weekend, I set up a time to get the trial.  So, without further ado...

We got a lot of wonderful gifts - unfortunately, since we live in MA, we're figuring out how to get them all here.  We'll see...maybe we'll ship them out one at a time.  

OK, I have more to upload but the "server" is down!  :(  More soon though!!

So I just got my invites back - I looked ALL OVER the net to find one that both FI and I loved, and we found a style we liked and I designed the invites and RSVP postcards from that.  If anyone recognizes these, please let me know and I'll definitely give kudos!!  Thanks!!
