20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

Are you creative? I sure as heck am not!

Hey ladies! I am not uber creative and need some help please!

I am throwing my friend a baby shower. This is her 2nd baby, but her 1st shower her husband is also getting snipped in the next couple of months so this baby is also her last. That all being said I want this shower to be very special for her. Now my dilemma: she has family who are scattered all over the US and her mom lives in Germany, they are all willing to come with advanced notice. I want to be formal and send 'Save the Dates'. I can't find any though! (I want something nice but I am NOT going to spend $60 on save the date cards)

Does anyone have any ideas? No cheap and tacky, just cheap and classy please. ;) Buying a bunch of stuff from Michael's I think is a bad idea because I'll spend a ton of money on all the random little stamps, stickers and stuff just to end up throwing them away. :( HELP!

Well, I'd say I'd make them for you, for a minimal amount, stuff that you could just get card stock and print. BUT I have no clue how much to charge or even how long it would take me since I am still learning as I go. I don't think it'd take me long, but yeah...

did you try etsy?

This too. You could make a little poem about it being her second and save the date

Thank you for keeping on posting! I definitely need some help!

These are strictly Save the Dates though. I will make/buy nice and fancy invites when the day gets closer, that's why I want to not spend much on these because I plan to drop a pretty penny on the actual invites.

Look around for cute poems and print on card stock. I make all of my invites for everything but I'm not sure how much I would charge. have you checked prices on shutterfly?

I would look for post cards, they will be a little cheaper and postage is cheaper too
