  • Not wierd at all! I make all my own cards, invitations, etc. Better than "cookie cutter" things you get at the store! :-)

  • Why are you throwing yourself a baby shower?

    If noone wants to help with the shower then are you sure they will come?

  • I don't think it's wierd...handmade cards are more meaningful!

    And anon...I think we've been through this on here various is a cultural difference as to who plans and pays for the baby shower. In some areas the friends of the mommy-to-be plan the party, in some areas it is more customary for the family to plan the party and in other areas it is more traditional if the mommy-to-be plans the party.  It's OK if everyone doesn't do something the same way as you.

  • thanks everyone i just wanted to make sure it wasnt weird or anything. and, the reason im planning it is because my mom was supposed to do it and me and her had a falling out and i just would rather do it myself that way i know its getting done. :( it kinda bites but, its ok i suppose.
