Remember how I told you my mom offered to hand address all our invites? Well I went over there the other night to drop off my gift registry cards for the the shower invites and saw how she'd been addressing those. And my digital friends? I feel mean saying, THEY SUCKED. Her 12 yrs of Catholic School handwriting has gone seriously downhill. I made a comment about it, and then felt like complete shit(rightly) as soon as the words were out. I don't know what to do. I'd like my invites hand addressed, but that writing just isn't up to par. I'm counting on the fact that she was sitting in a rocker chair addressing them on the gliding foot stool as the cause for the poor handwriting. But what if it isn't? What if her age is just showing?
I know, use a printer. And I'd be happy to, except for the fact the envelopes are deckled edge, "riped", so I'm not to sure how they'd do going through a printer.
I don't know what to do.
***Composer's Note**** I feel the need to clarify that my mom's hand writing, due to her 12 yrs of Catholic school teaching and strictness was always impeccable. She's sent me things while she was Down South and that handwriting was always very nice. And I've thought of the clear labels, but my experience with them has not been fabulous because the ink tends to rub off with handling and since quite a few invites will be going overseas, there will be considerable handling.
