I've wanted envelopes made of maps forever, and I've had an old map book kicking around (with some delightfully out-of-date locations in it). So finally, I got down to business and made some card-sized envelopes for myself!

Travel inspired wedding sounds very cool! Will there be pictures in the wedding section? (And you're welcome. Smiley)

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
