WOYWW 141

Doesn't Wednesday come around quickly?
Today I'm afraid it's more of the same from me.  I was hoping to have this Wedding licked by now but with children off for half-term....need I say more.  I need to get it sorted as I'm away to the trade fair at the NEC in Birmingham this weekend and have another lady wanting Wedding invites coming next week......yikes!
My desk this week;


I'm about 1/2 way through my day invites.  I've left a finished one there for you to see.  It is very simple from the front with everything going on inside.  All the information of the wedding on the top and a pocket with the RSVP on the bottom.
Why not go and have a nosey via Julia's blog and see what everyone else is up to....I love having a look.

Just before I go I mentioned yesterday about Herman.  Now 10 days ago my good friend Christel arrived with a plastic contain of shall we say goo and some instructions announcing that she had "Herman" the friendship cake for me and I had to look after him or he would die!  No pressure there then!
It turns out that Herman is a sour dough cake mix that you have to look after and leave out on the kitchen worktop covered with a tea towel for just over a week....feeding it twice in this time before splitting it on day 9 and sharing with your 3 of your friends.  The 4th section you bake yourself on day 10.  I was surprised how tasty it is as it goes against all your natural instincts to leave food out of the fridge for that length of time.
Fancy a slice?
Here it is........it goes mighty fine with a nice cup of tea!


That's all from me this Wednesday, whatever you are up to enjoy.....happy crafting!

See, Herman's a man. Men can handle that food left out of the fridge for so long. :-) I'm with you, that might make me nervous. I'm loving the wedding invite on the desk. I don't think invites need to be overly elaborate. The simple but elegant look works so well!
