i’ve mentioned it a few times… that 3 months ago – after a year of living in Australia, i moved from Sydney to the country’s smallest of the big cities – Adelaide. Radelaide (as the locals call it) is a coastal town in South Australia w/ an approx 1.3 million pop, sits in the midst of Australia’s vast wine region, boasts more than 400 festivals each year + it’s the sister city of Austin, TX (one of my fav facts – as i really heart Austin).
prior to moving to Adelaide, i’d visited approx 14 times as my bf & i were doing long distance since the time we moved from the U.S. to the two different AU cities… but alas, we are back together and moved into our new little home.
in the 3 months since relocating – i’ve spent 2 work weeks in Sydney, a long weekend in Melbourne & 2.5 weeks back at home in the U.S. for the holidays — with that, getting our house in gear has taken a bit of a backseat. alas – i’ve got 30 days without travel, the majority of the boxes unpacked & we are finally ready for our housewarming party!
when thinking about invitations i debated evite, but then decided to keep it old school w/ real life mail. i went to my fav of favs site, etsy – to see who & what i could find. i stumbled upon ‘Practically Perfect Design’ by Gabrielle Kearney… she offers cute & creative personalized designed for a cheap rate. you tell her what you what, she creates & sends you the file – and you print it! within a couple days, i got my design – printed on some peach a2 postcards (a pack of 24 for $4.50 from Chicago boutique Paper & Print) – and addressed & sent to the party-goers… all that for just $26 (which included postage)!
