It's an Ona Miracle!

First, thank you so much for all of your compliments on the invites. I wasn't even fishing for compliments! I'm blushing as I type this.

So, here's what went down with the invites. A coworker came over to my desk to ask what I decided to do about the invites. I told him that many of my blog friends told me to ignore it, but mentioned that I should check all of the copies for severity in the shifting. As we talked, I opened up the box to pull out the stack of invites and found crop marks on them! There are crop marks showing on the top and bottom right corners of every invite and on the lower left corner and back of many invites. I brought a handful over to the printer this afternoon. She called the crop marks "unacceptable" and offered to reprint the invites. Yeah! She's going to let me work with the typesetter to make sure all of the alignment issues are fixed too. I compared them to the original mock-up that I brought in and the difference was substantial.

Those crop marks are a blessing in disguise! I got what I wanted without even having to fight! My Grandma Ona passed away very suddenly last week after a mercifully brief battle with ovarian cancer. Andy coined the term "Ona Miracle" at the funeral and now we're calling anything good that happens an "Ona Miracle." I know that calling crop marks on invites a "miracle" is a bit of a stretch, but maybe giving her credit will score her a good seat next to JC. Then again, I pity Jesus if He sent her to the back of the line!

I love that Jesus got wrapped up in all of this.

What a blessing in disguise though. Now you will get exactly what you want. What a relief!

p.s. i dont think that i knew about your grandma and i just wanted to tell you that i am so sorry for your loss. i lost my grandma on easter and my Daddy right before July so you just have to believe that they are looking down on you and pulling some stings to make everything perfect for your wedding.

Glad to hear it all worked out!

I'm about to lose my grandmother, so I know a little bit of how you feel. Hope you're doing okay and know that she's definitely watching out for you!
