Goldfish swimming in my head and all over the basement!

I made an Etsy alchemy bid on engagement party / couples shower invitations and did not know what I was getting myself into!  "CT" had a lot of vision and we added a lot of detail!!  And this just in, the below photos weren't enough!!  I went back and added bow ties and veils!!
100 invitations in total, 1200 inches of ribbon, endless fishing line, 100 hooks, 200 googly eyes, 100 vellum fish bowls, 125 veils (they're hard to keep track of and I had to cut more at least twice), 100 bow ties, and of course 200 cut goldfish made these completely unique A6 matted announcments with host cards.  The cricut just about died on me and most of the fish had to be hand cut.  I have scut files for the fish bowl and fish if anyone is interested, feel free to message me.   I deliberately do not wish to total the hours spent on this project! ;)  My back hurts but aren't they just so adorable they're worth it!?!
