Last night Hubby and I went to an Engagement Party for one of his co-workers, but coming up with a gift was a real challenge. When you are going to an Engagement party and the couple being honored has not yet registered, what do you give them? If you know they have a favorite something, then I think that would be nice to give them, but if you don't know that...then what? In this case something personalized with their names (or initials) and/or their wedding date seemed like a good way to go. So, I went with it, but because I was late coming up with the idea I had to make something myself, which I was happy to do...I just wish I had thought of doing it sooner! I decided I was going to make a print and then put it in a nice frame (so if they didn't like the print, then at least they would have a nice frame). I wanted to use lyrics from a love song, but I had some sort of mental block (panic mode!) and only two songs popped into my mind...Wild Thing by the Troggs and So Happy Together by the Turtles. Luckily I found a sweet line from Turtles song (Skies will be blue for all my life...now that we're together) and went with it. Once I was done with the design I had it professionally printed in an 8x10 format. The professional printing made a big difference in the print quality (highly recommended if you do this). I was happy with the final product and I felt good about giving them a personalized gift just for the two of them.
