So I blogged about my daughters graduation invitations the other day.
It’s kind of funny. We got the invitations in the mail, super fast. It wasn’t until a few days later that someone was kind enough to tell me that I screwed them up.
Ironic, really. I am one of those people who can’t stand spelling mistakes, I always seem to find them. And yet, here is proof of my imperfect humanity.
My daughter graduated Summa Cum Laude, with a GPA over 4.3. I took full credit for this. Yet, I also now have to take full credit for telling the world that she succss!!!!
So I didn’t mail the invitations. Pondered what to do. Thought about sending them and hoping no one would notice. Couldn’t do it.
By the way, when I ordered these…I was forced to review the front and back of this invitation before I could finish, you have to click that you read and approve each side. I was so busy making sure I had spelled the back of it correctly, and worried about how to word the whole ‘me and the ex are throwing a party together’, I just didn’t pay enough attention to the front.
Well, I came up with a brilliant idea to save the day.
Labels!!! Because black permanent marker could not quite hide the fact that I was trying to cover something up, I decided to look into a sticker/label option.
Thank you vistaprint.com for also have extremely fast shipping, and adorable labels that can be personalized in any way a person could imagine.
So, I did think of another suggestion for cardstore.com, to make the experience there even more meaningful…..spellcheck!!! You just can’t trust us to catch our own mistakes. 🙂
My husband’s last name was spelled wrong on our wedding invitations. We had proof read those puppies, too, and I SWEAR it was spelled right on our version. Oh well. We still got married and usually spell our last name right 🙂 Congrats to your daughter!
At least now you have a funny story to tell about it!!
