It’s my birthday today. And at the moment when this post is published**, I will be celebrating over sushi and alcohol, hopefully with friends.*
To get my friends to join me, I did something a little old-fashioned: I mailed them invitations.
I mentioned a few weeks ago using Picnik for graphic design. This is how I made the invitations.
*I’ve learned to have low expectations for my birthdays. The last real party I had–on my 30th birthday–no guests showed up until a full hour after the start time I had put on the invitation.
**I forgot to schedule this to publish. Friends did show up, I did eat a lot of sushi, I did learn that I react better to vodka than to rum. Lesson learned.
